Heroin detox requires constant, advanced medical attention for the safety of the patient. Nexstep has developed an advanced process for the very specific needs of those caught in the web of heroin addiction, which includes medical support.

At Nexstep Medical Detox, highly skilled detox staff monitors each client’s progress with 24/7 monitoring from arrival until departure. Nexstep offers a different kind of detox: detox supported by medical, psychological, behavior treatment and counseling.

Each day of detox will address the medical report and the progress of the patient. The first 30 days of treatment are focused predominately on monitoring and medical support. Once the patient is stabilized, it takes time to resolve the trauma of overcoming heroin addiction. During the first critical days, pharmaceuticals may be prescribed to stabilize the body through this dangerous period. Minimum treatment includes an additional 60 days of advanced counseling, ongoing medical supervision, and a supportive therapeutic environment.

Withdrawal from heroin is life-threatening. Incomplete treatment can result in relapse and fatal overdose. Quality treatment in a professional addiction recovery center is required for a safe and effective recovery from this dangerously addictive drug.

Nexstep Medical Detox is focused on breaking the cycle of addiction with counseling, behavior modification training and learned emotional life management skills. Because of the extreme seriousness and potential for dangerous recurrence, Nexstep requires extended stays for all heroin recovery patients.

If you or someone you love are struggling with any type of medication abuse, call Nexstep Medical Detox at (877) 983-3869 for a detox treatment plan and tools for obtaining and maintaining long-term sobriety.
