What is heroin addiction
Heroin addiction is an extremely dangerous condition. With our experienced team, we are here to guide you on your way to recovery. Addiction is a term used to describe a physical, psychological and or emotional dependency on a particular substance, act, ritual or behaviour. Addiction presents itself in many different forms, the most common of which is the dependency on illicit or prescribed drugs, alcohol and tobacco. Addiction roots are located predominantly in stress and anxiety disorders, and addictive behaviours serve as a temporary relief to these symptoms.
Addiction can develop quickly or over a long period. The person loses control and the ability to stop when they had planned to. The substance or behaviour begins to control and manipulate a person’s life. People are often referred to as being an ‘addict’ and having an ‘addiction’ once this pattern of behaviour has taken root. In its most chronic state, the addicts’ main purpose, function and desire are to ‘feed’ the addiction. This cultivates an endless cycle of unhealthy behaviour which triggers an overwhelming sense to ‘use more, more frequently’ to feel satisfied. This ‘using’ behaviour becomes the only means of pleasure or ‘escape’ for the addict.
Eventually, addiction causes an often-devastating impact on all areas of life, resulting in chronic health conditions, poor social engagement, isolation, work problems, family and relationship breakdown, a chaotic lifestyle, debt or financial problems.
How BALANCE treats heroin addiction
At BALANCE Luxury Rehab & Treatment Center we use a holistic and person-centred treatment method for ‘recovery’ from addiction. Our programmes incorporate a combination of talking therapies, complementary therapies and medical treatments. Together these treatments build a programme to help you identify and explore the underlying ‘causes’ of the addiction; we enable you to connect with and address difficulties and teach you the necessary skills required to change the addictive behaviour. We call this method of treatment ‘a prescription for life’.
BALANCE programmes do not only work to heal or mend the presenting symptom or problems, we endeavour to provide you with a lasting change in behaviour to overcome the unhealthy addictive behaviour patterns. We begin by asking you to be ‘curious’ about what brought you to this point in your life, and then help you to explore solutions to the underlying problems. This method is proven to lead to lifelong positive change.
