LOS ANGELES, Aug. 9, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Between 2010 and 2013, the rate of heroin-related deaths almost tripled in the United States. When this statistic was released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, they also stated that the number of heroin-related deaths was nearly four times greater in men than in women. Due to the spike in heroin addiction and the consequential death rate, it has been up to addiction treatment centers and drug rehab facilities to create treatment plans that directly speak to heroin use and abuse.
Right Path Drug Rehab is proud to report that they have seen higher rates of recovery in their heroin addicted clients within the past year. They attribute their success to individually tailored dual diagnosis addiction treatment programs. When a client enrolls due to a heroin addiction, Right Path Drug Rehab's experienced case managers guide him or her through a detailed assessment that enables them to plan the best possible dual diagnosis program for that individual.
Dual diagnosis treatment means that both the physical and psychological aspects of addiction are targeted. This type of program creates a strong cornerstone for lasting recovery because it does not only focus on detox alone. "By incorporating detoxification and inpatient treatment into the same program, clients not only get clean, but they learn how to discover and address the root of the addiction itself," said Rick Bell, an intake coordinator at Right Path Drug Rehab.
Heroin is extremely addictive due to the way that opioid receptors in the brain trigger a large release of dopamine, which causes waves of euphoria. After the brain has experienced that kind of pleasure, heroin because difficult to stop using and the person can feel intense cravings for the drug. Right Path Drug Rehab guides each of their clients through a clinically managed detox where each individual client receives the type of support and supervision that he or she needs throughout the process.
By targeting both the body and the mind, Right Path Drug Rehab Center has set themselves apart from other drug rehab centers as they continue to fight against the highest rates yet of national heroin abuse.
