Why Holistic Heroin Rehabs are Best
When people think of drug rehab, they often think of the traditional 12-step program. Thankfully, there are many other options available for people seeking treatment. We say thankfully, because empirical evidence has demonstrated that a traditional 12-step program simply does not work any better than a person trying to rehab themselves without the aid of any outside assistance. There are several reasons why the traditional programs are not successful and why people are choosing alternative rehabs en masse.
Let us look at a few things that the traditional 12-step program tells people who seek help:
The Problem with Toxins
In order to understand why so many users relapse, we have to understand what happens within our bodies. Every time someone uses drugs, it leaves toxins in their system. This is true for marijuana, cocaine, and especially heroin. Eventually these toxins are stored deeply in the body’s fat cells. Here they often lie dormant for quite some time. Over time (this is a natural process) our body breaks down certain fat cells and as a result, these toxins are released back into our bodies. People that continue to use their drug of choice don’t notice this because they are already giving in to their cravings. The problem starts when someone attempts to stop their substance abuse.
These toxins are stored in our fat cells long after someone attempts to stay clean and sober. This means that even when they are determined not to use drugs anymore, this residue is slowly being released into the bloodstream on a continual basis; being exposed to the very drug they are trying not to use anymore. Because the drug residue are released in such small amounts, the body, already accustomed to wanting the drug, is only going to increase the desire for more. This makes it extremely difficult to stop using, because even if the person is sober, they are still exposed to the narcotic without wanting to be.
The Importance of Becoming Truly Clean
Thanks to a biophysical detoxification along with additional holistic treatment protocols, these toxins are flushed out of the body in a rapid, safe process. So what does that mean for someone who is trying to recover from heroin addiction? It does not mean that this is a ‘cure’; it simply means that biophysical rehab programs make the entire process much easier to deal with and sets the person up for success. Think of it as starting at a 5-mile race with a 2-mile head start. The person is simply in a better position to achieve their goals – which is what everyone could use if they want to permanently rid themselves of their heroin abuse.
Relapse is not only something that makes people feel worthless and incapable of making a change in their life, it is very dangerous to their health and ever-present risk of overdose. Why would you choose anything other than what would give you the best possible outcome? If you are ready to see what biophysical detox and holistic rehabs can do for you or a loved one, the only thing you have to do is pick up the phone and make that call.
