Heroin Addiction Rehab


Consult with a professional now to learn how we can help you or your loved one.

START YOUR RECOVERY TODAY

Heroin is an extremely potent and addictive opiate.

It creates an instant and intense relaxation and euphoria in the user and acts on receptors in the brain to suppress feelings of pain.
Users can quickly come to depend on these effects.

The drug is also physically addictive. A person’s tolerance will increase as they continue to use the drug, meaning users will require more to achieve the desired effect. This increases the probability of overdose.

Once a person has developed a heroin addiction, it is extremely difficult to stop using it.
Most people will require professional support.

Heroin Addiction Symptoms

Heroin puts users in a drowsy, semi-conscious state and slows their heart rate and breathing.

In some cases, this can result in coma or death.

When used persistently, heroin also changes the structure of the brain, negatively affecting decision-making and response to stimuli. It can also severely weaken the immune system.

Heroin abusers, particularly those with a history of drug abuse, may initially be able to conceal signs and symptoms of their heroin use.

But the loved ones and coworkers may notice physical symptoms of the drug as well as the possession of drug paraphernalia.

Drug paraphernalia is used to prepare, inject or consume heroin, such as needles or syringes not used for other medical purposes.

Users can build up a tolerance to heroin, leading to increases in the frequency and amount of heroin consumption.

As tolerance increases, more identifiable physical symptoms of heroin abuse and addiction emerge

Users are at risk of overdose or death because there is often no way of determining the quality of the drug.

Heroin Withdrawal Symptoms

In some cases, the body may be so dependent that withdrawal can be very dangerous.

Anyone attempting to quit using heroin should do so with medical supervision.

Our addiction treatment centres offer a personalized approach to treatment and recovery goes above and beyond the standard of care to provide you with long-term support and guidance on your road to recovery.

We help find the best heroin rehab option for you and support you through unique therapy methods that are adapted to your personal requirements.

We utilize cutting edge technologies like Cue-Exposure (VR) and comprehensive approaches like individual therapy, group therapy, family therapy and partner support therapy.

Heroin addiction treatment can be a challenging life period for some individuals as heroin creates a very strong mental and psychical addiction if consumed on a regular basis.

Heroin Addiction Rehab

As many people struggling with addiction also have mental health conditions, we provide expert treatment for concurrent disorders.

  • We operate two rehab centres in Ontario: a residential centre, located in Guelph, and an outpatient counselling centre in midtown Toronto.
  • We also offer Virtual Heroin Addiction Rehab program for those who want to recover in the comfort of their homes, at their convenience. 
  • At Trafalgar Addiction Treatment Centres, our highly trained therapists and counsellors are experts in heroin abuse and addiction treatment. We’re sympathetic to the fear and anxiety that come with confronting the emotions, perceptions and life experiences at the root of heroin addiction.
  • As recovery is a lifelong process, we also provide all our clients with access to specialized aftercare support through our Aftercare and ContinUcare programs. Our support for our clients goes on long after initial treatment is completed.
  • If you are concerned about you or a loved one’s heroin use, contact Trafalgar Addiction Treatment Centres today.

Our treatment team assesses each client’s substance abuse history. They may also look for other concurrent mental health and addiction issues such as opiate painkiller abuse or other prescription drug abuse that may have been a precursor to heroin abuse.

We are also prepared to offer long-term treatment options so the client can cope with the side effects of dependence on heroin with a solid support network in place.
