You have a variety of options for rehab from heroin addiction at Landmark Recovery of Knoxville. Our rehab center uses evidence-based treatments including detox, residential treatment, partial hospitalization, and intensive outpatient treatment. What’s more, we will continue to provide support on your journey to sobriety long after you leave our facility.
Why? Because we want to equip you to navigate the world – without heroin – and live the life you dreamed for yourself before your addiction.
Heroin is a very difficult drug to overcome on your own, and many people suffering from heroin addiction find themselves stuck in a vicious cycle of withdrawal and relapse. Our approach, then, is carefully and strategically planned with the goal of sobriety, yes, but with the greater goal of restoring your mental and physical wellness.
With this in mind, here is what you can expect from Landmark Recovery in the process of working to treat your heroin dependency:
Upon admission to our Knoxville heroin rehab, all clients undergo a complete evaluation by a clinical specialist to determine the severity of addiction and any unique challenges (such as co-occurring mental health disorders). Based on this initial assessment, a personalized treatment plan will be tailored to meet your specific needs; depending on your personal situation, heroin rehab can be carried out on a residential, partial hospitalization, or intensive outpatient basis. If you have a long history of heroin abuse with several attempts to quit, you will most likely benefit from the daily structure and around-the-clock medical support service and care provided by residential treatment.
Detox will be the first official step to treating your heroin addiction. Heroin detoxification, or “detox,” is a process that involves flushing out all traces of heroin from your system. Due to the severity of symptoms that can be experienced during heroin withdrawal, we strongly recommend participating in our medically supervised heroin detox program within our Landmark Recovery center, where a team of caring, qualified doctors and nurses will provide 24/7 monitoring and support to ensure that you remain safe and comfortable throughout the entire detox process. You also may be prescribed an FDA-approved medication, such as methadone or Suboxone, that can effectively manage withdrawal symptoms and help you wean off heroin safely. 1
Following detox, you will be ready to begin the therapy phase of heroin rehab. In addition to individual and group counseling, Landmark Recovery of Knoxville’s heroin rehab center offers a variety of behavioral therapy services that will help uncover and treat the underlying causes of your addiction. Cognitive-behavioral therapy, mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, contingency management, and motivational incentives are some of the behavioral therapy strategies we use that have been shown to effectively treat heroin addiction and help prevent relapse. 2 Instead of stopping medication after detox, you may continue to use medication-assisted treatment to help combat cravings and ensure better recovery outcomes. 3
Once you complete our addiction treatment program, it’s important to remember that you are not finished. Recovery is a lifelong process, and Landmark Recovery will continue to support you throughout this entire journey. We will facilitate your transition out of our structured treatment into a fully integrated support network and variety of aftercare services that will build on the treatment you received. We also will provide you with a comprehensive discharge plan before you are discharged from our Knoxville heroin rehab, with a personal recovery coach to help guide you, and you will have access to alumni programming of monthly symposiums and regularly scheduled support group meetings.
