Heroin Addiction Rehab

Heroin is a highly addictive and dangerous opioid drug affecting every aspect of a person’s life.

We know that heroin abuse and heroin addiction are powerful foes. But we also know that with the right heroin dependence treatment program, recovery is possible.

Signs of heroin addiction

Are you struggling with:

  • Using heroin more, and more often?
  • Cravings for heroin?
  • Wanting to quit, detox or cut down, or trying unsuccessfully to quit?
  • Spending a lot of time and effort getting, using, and recovering from heroin?
  • Failing to fulfil responsibilities at work, school, or home, but still using heroin?
  • Giving up activities that you once enjoyed?
  • Using opioids in dangerous situations?
  • Feeling ill when you don’t use heroin, a sign of withdrawal and physical heroin dependence?

These are commons signs you may need help for heroin addiction. If you need help or someone to talk to about how to quit heroin, call us for help.

Your road to recovery starts here.

Heroin is a semi-synthetic opioid: it is made in a lab from morphine that has been chemically processed. It enters the brain quickly and produces a more immediate effect. It is highly addictive and dangerous – death from heroin overdose is an immediate and real danger.

The Centre for Addiction and Mental Health reports that there are also long-term dangers of heroin abuse and heroin addiction: research using brain scans shows that long-term regular use of heroin can change the way your brain works, and that it can take months or years for the brain to return to normal. With treatment, these effects are reversible.

We’ve helped nearly 50,000 people recover from substance addictions and we can help you too.

We are proudly accredited and in good standing with the Canadian Centre for Accreditation. This means that we routinely undergo an extensive review of our practices and procedures to ensure they meet the rigorous standards for quality of care, and organizational performance. In the current unregulated marketplace of addiction treatment providers, accreditation is how we set ourselves apart from the less reputable providers who can make some of the same claims as we do, but do not provide the quality of care necessary to fulfill those claims.

As part of this intensive process, independent third-party accreditation specialists regularly spend months reviewing and evaluating every aspect of our organization, from our policies and procedures to our facilities. All staff are interviewed to ensure that they are properly certified for the work they do, and that we are routinely receiving the most up-to-date training in areas such as Non-Violent Crisis Prevention and First Aid and CPR. In this way, the accreditation specialists can determine that staff at all levels of our organization are meeting their obligations both to our clients and within the organization, with integrity. The renewal process occurs every four years, which means we are consistently upgrading to meet the Canadian Centre for Accreditation's standards.

There are three accrediting bodies that are recognized by Ontario:

  • Accreditation Canada, which specializes in hospitals and offers a primer course for organizations considering accreditation;
  • Canadian Centre for Accreditation (CCA), which is Ontario-based (but operates country-wide) and specializes in community-based agencies;
  • Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF), which is an American firm.

We chose to undergo the Canadian Centre for Accreditation's process because of their community-based specialty, their Ontario/Canadian foundation, and their philosophy, which is that they are partners with agencies and not only provide peer review audit/surveys, but also provide support to agencies in developing their protocols in order to achieve accreditation.

“I finally felt important, cared for, and even a little loved. I felt like my life was worth living! I’ve been given the gift of life. I’m learning routine, I’m learning how to be around people and not isolate. I’m learning how to care for myself and better yet love myself, all over again.”
