Heroin addiction treatment – our approach

At Renascent, 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.

Once the first step is taken – admitting you need help for heroin addiction – the journey to healing and recovery has begun.

Our comprehensive, person-centred Toronto and Durham region addiction treatment programs take place in a safe, caring environment. Our abstinence-based model integrates 12-step facilitation with other best practices in clinical and medical approaches, which are proven to make a difference in long-term sobriety.

With abstinence-based treatment, even those with the most serious of drug addictions can find renewed health and healing, and a truly transformative experience.

Our intensive in-patient heroin abuse treatment program (28 – 42 day stays) provides around-the-clock counselling and support from our team of registered psychotherapists and certified drug and alcohol addiction specialists, all of whom have lived experience of addiction and long-term recovery.

At Renascent we treat the whole person, because heroin addiction affects you on every level. Your care will be based on a heroin rehab program tailored to meet your unique needs.

Signs of heroin addiction

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. 

Commons signs you may need help for heroin addiction include

  • using more, and more often
  • cravings
  • 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

“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.”
