Heroin Addiction Treatment

Speak to an Advisor Now

100% Confidential

Heroin is one of the most addictive and dangerous illicit drugs. Unfortunately, heroin abuse has increased over the last few years, leaving millions of people struggling to stop using heroin. Because of its potency, heroin addiction isn’t something an individual can overcome on their own. Without professional support, recovery is nearly impossible. At TruHealing Baltimore, we understand the impact heroin abuse has had on communities, families, and individuals. Our team in our heroin addiction treatment program is devoted to helping individuals not just stop using heroin but heal from substance abuse and make a lasting recovery.

The Effects of Heroin Abuse

Lovely couple holding hands and smiling.Over the last few years, addiction treatment professionals have seen a spike in heroin abuse. For many, heroin addiction is tied to prescription drug addiction, specifically opioids. When individuals develop a dependency on opioid painkillers and exhaust their prescription options, they frequently turn to illicit opiates like heroin. Unfortunately, heroin addiction is much more intense and deadlier.

Compounding the problem of heroin’s addictive nature, it also has problems caused by dirty needle use. Though there are many ways to get heroin into your system, most people choose to inject the drug. Used needles can introduce blood-borne diseases into your body. Your chances of developing HIV, hepatitis C, and hepatitis B increase the more often you inject this drug. With frequent injections, you could even cause the veins in your arms to collapse and reduce blood flow.

Needle use is not the only cause of problems from heroin abuse. This drug causes other problems in the body, including the following:

  • Skin infections
  • Miscarriage
  • Depression
  • Antisocial behavior
  • Heart valve infection
  • Brain damage from slowed breathing from an overdose

Overdose poses a real danger to those who use heroin. The amount of active ingredients in the heroin injected is difficult to determine. Additives to the heroin can also taint the drug used, posing additional risks such as clogged blood vessels or damage to the kidneys, lungs, and heart.

How Our Heroin Addiction Treatment Program Can Help

Addiction is difficult to live with. You can take steps to turn around your life and your health by choosing to go to a heroin addiction treatment center. To help you through stopping heroin use and recovering yourself, we offer the following services at TruHealing Baltimore:

  • Co-occurring treatment: Often, individuals struggling with heroin addiction use the drug in part because of underlying mental health issues like depression or anxiety. Similarly, when the individual struggles with heroin abuse, they are at a greater risk of developing these mood disorders, prompting them to abuse heroin further. Our co-occurring program treats addiction’s physical and mental aspects, addresses the dependency on heroin, and treats mental health issues, so clients heal completely.
  • Partial hospitalization program (PHP): In this program, clients come to our facility daily for a fixed block of treatment hours. Afterward, they return to their home or sober living community. It’s a way for clients to maintain their independence but still get the necessary support and treatment they need.
  • Intensive outpatient program (IOP): Like a PHP, this program provides concentrated treatment over a shorter time. Clients still work or return home after treatment but come to our facility for regular treatment sessions lasting several hours over several weeks. It’s an excellent option for those needing support after relapse.

In all of these programs, we offer clients a variety of therapeutic options. This allows individuals to address their mental health issues and underlying causes, stressors, or triggers of heroin abuse. Some of the therapies we offer include:

Stacy Decker
Director of Operations

I joined the team at TruHealing Hagerstown in 2020. Before starting my current position, I worked as an administrator in outpatient surgical care, and then joined an ambulatory surgery center development company as Regional Director.  I enjoy using my medical background and business knowledge—in conjunction with my personal experiences in recovery—to encourage and support clients seeking treatment.

Abstinence and recovery are an integral part of my life. Being able to help other people who are suffering with a substance use disorder has been a blessing. TruHealing Hagerstown is the only inpatient facility in our community to help people suffering with substance use disorders. It’s incredibly rewarding to give back to my community.

As we continue to grow Amatus Health, the need to stay competitive and differentiate ourselves in unique ways is crucial. Building creative approaches to reach more people will take our company to new heights. This is why I am pleased to announce that we are officially rebranding. Our new national name, TruHealing Addiction & Mental Health Treatment, will eventually replace Amatus Recovery Centers.

You may be asking, “Why are we doing this?” This new name will give us national uniformity and help brand ourselves as a whole, which will be done in phases. You will still see our existing facility names co-branded with TruHealing for the time being.

Healing is what we do. Everyone who comes through our doors is in a moment of profound struggle in their lives. We support them through a life-changing process of healing and recovery, and they leave our facilities changed. This new name is a representation of that process. As mentioned above, it also allows us to have a national brand, which will make us a recognizable name in the addiction and mental health field.

In summation, these changes present an excellent opportunity for our organization to develop our mission, vision, and purpose. I look forward to prosperous growth as we head in a new and positive direction.
