How to Overcome a Heroin Addiction with Faith-Based Treatment

Heroin is a highly addictive opioid that is derived from morphine and can produce an extreme high with intense feelings of euphoria. A heroin addiction can completely destroy one’s physical appearance and lead to long-term health issues if not treated properly.

Heroin-related overdose deaths have increased fivefold from 2010-2016 in the US. [1] While this addiction is very powerful, there is hope for overcoming it with the right form of treatment. Addicts can find their inner-strength to reach sobriety with help from a faith-based addiction treatment center. The spiritual approach for treatment has successfully helped so many struggling individuals find the light and change their unhealthy patterns. At Faith in Recovery, we provide customized care for heroin addiction treatment and we are committed to ensuring that our patients receive the best care possible.

What is Faith-Based Treatment?

Addiction treatment that has a spiritual approach added on can help individuals find purpose and meaning during the recovery journey. There are many benefits to faith-based treatment. When someone is addicted to heroin, their whole life is turned upside down, and they may feel that they have no strength to battle this disease. Connecting with a higher power will allow these individuals to understand why the addiction was formed and the importance of breaking free from the demons. Patients will work one on one with a clinician to undergo unique therapy methods that will help an individual change negative thought patterns. They can expect to engage in weekly bible studies as well as customized programming that is specific to their needs and recovery goals.

Faith Can Heal Individuals

The connection between faith and addiction treatment can be very powerful for someone who is at rock bottom from a heroin addiction. There needs to be a period of time where an individual can truly heal from the pain and learn effective ways to move past the addiction. Our faith-based rehab in South Florida focuses on relapse prevention techniques combined with a spiritual foundation for future success in the real world. If you or your loved one is enduring the serious effects of a heroin addiction, it’s time to take control and seek treatment.
