Heroin's Impact on the Body and Mind

The body naturally produces its own form of opioid: endogenous opioids. Inside your brain are opioid receptors that bind to the naturally produced opioids. These compounds are designed to do things like:

  • Aid with sleep
  • Calm your breathing
  • Control your heart rate
  • Increase pleasure
  • Reduce pain

Under normal circumstances, you might exercise, during which you are causing yourself mild pain, but you don’t necessarily feel the pain and instead feel a bit of pleasure. This is an example of those naturally occurring opioids at work. 

With heroin, it is thought that the synthetic opioids bind to the same location. However, the impact that heroin has on the brain and, subsequently, the body is much more intense compared to endogenous opioids. This means you get a higher dose of pain management and pleasure, with reduced heart rates, breathing, and sleepiness. For this reason, prescription versions of heroin, like morphine, have been used for medical purposes. 

However, outside of medical settings, the use of any opioid derivative, especially heroin, comes with great risks. The longer you avoid heroin rehab in Colorado, the more likely you are to experience short and long-term symptoms.

The Signs

When to Go to a Colorado Heroin Addiction Treatment Center

Heroin addiction looks different for everyone, but signs that it is time for help can be physical, behavioral, and psychological.  

Behavioral signs, without any other explanation, often co-exist with physical or psychological symptoms. Some examples include the following:

  • Heroin use resulting in legal issues
  • Changes to friends or hobbies
  • Issues with interpersonal relationships
  • Financial issues and an unexplained need for money
  • Neglecting personal and professional responsibilities because of heroin use
  • No longer caring about hygiene
  • Engaging in secretive behavior
  • Wearing clothes that cover track marks regardless of the weather

Physical signs and symptoms are often more noticeable than behavioral or psychological ones by close friends or family. Some examples include:

  • Nodding off without explanation
  • Dry mouth
  • Decreased breathing
  • Increased sleeping
  • Constant runny nose
  • Slurred speech
  • Weight loss
  • Itching
  • Bad hygiene

The longer you go without treatment, the more likely you are to develop secondary psychological signs and symptoms, including:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Paranoia
  • No motivation
  • Irritability
  • Disorientation
  • Memory issues
  • Cognitive decline
  • Mood swings

If you recognize the signs of addiction, don’t be afraid to get help. Healing Pines offers a luxury men’s-only heroin treatment center in Colorado.

Why You Need Professional Heroin Rehab in Colorado

Heroin withdrawal has severe and dangerous withdrawal symptoms. These symptoms can be better managed with FDA-approved medication at a Colorado heroin addiction treatment center. 

These withdrawal symptoms should be managed by a professional treatment facility. Heroin withdrawal symptoms are incredibly painful because of the way heroin disrupts your brain chemistry and changes natural levels of dopamine, opioid receptor activity, and other endorphins. Without heroin, your brain will start to receive pain signals and, at the same time, be unable to naturally produce endorphins that manage pain.

While the initial withdrawal symptoms can be managed within several days, feelings of depression and severe Cravings can last several weeks. The longer you have struggled with Heroin addiction, the more likely you are to experience vomiting, sweating, and diarrhea for weeks or months after you get clean as your body releases all the built-up toxins.

Heroin withdrawal symptoms will begin within a few hours of the last dose and include things like:

  • Cravings
  • Uncontrollable muscle spasms
  • Bone pain
  • Muscle pain
  • Restlessness
  • Insomnia
  • Goosebumps
  • Cold flashes
  • Vomiting and diarrhea

Within the first twenty-four hours, many of the withdrawal symptoms you experience will be mild and increase in their severity according to your history of substance abuse. 

Within the first thirty-six hours, you are in the most dangerous part of the detox process. This is often the point where people relapse if they don’t have professional help. At our facility, we can help you transition through your most intense withdrawal symptoms, manage the physical and prepare you for the psychological.

Over the next several days, the drugs will be flushed from your system entirely, and your symptoms will begin to taper. If you have struggled with long-term substance abuse, this is the point at which we can help you deal with concurrent physical or mental health problems.

Our Colorado heroin addiction treatment center can help. Contact us today at 720-575-2621 to schedule your tour. 

The leadership and staff were committed to my success.

Paul is a man of integrity which flows through his team. I have been to other recovery programs and HPR stands far above them all. The small group structure offers a more intimate and personalized experience. This was so much more beneficial to my recovery than facilities preaching a "one-size-fits-all" solution to larger and fragmented groups. It was like having personal and knowledgeable therapists dedicated to me for a full month! They went out of their way to understand the root of my challenges and construct a path for improvement that is unique and relatable to me. This was a huge benefit!

It saved my life, in every sense.

I spent a month at Healing Pines Recovery. The actual location itself is unreal. A beautiful cabin lodge, with gorgeous scenery. The rooms are large, queen beds, very comfortable! Great bathrooms with great showers! There is a pool table, slam jam, (Christine! 😉 frisbee golf, and daily access to a nearby gym. The property also has a pickle ball court that was used daily, Zoey the counselor beat us men constantly!

Clay M

My experience with Healing Pines Recovery has been wonderful.

My husband was their client, and they helped him be able to help himself. He is doing amazing! I think the combination of counseling, physical labor, meditation, AA, and just the beauty of the place itself all had a very positive impact on him. They really cared about him, and that did not stop just because he came home. Also they have counseling for the families and it has really helped me a lot. Heather is awesome! I thank God that we had them in our lives when we were most vulnerable.

We wanted to share our gratitude to the staff.

Our son was under the care of Healing Pines recently and we wanted to share our gratitude to the staff. There were many challenges in his pursuing treatment, and thankfully Paul and Heather C helped us navigate all of them skillfully with patience and compassion.

You'll get your life back!

Healing Pines Recovery is/was instrumental in setting me up for long term success in my recovery journey. I've been to treatment centers in the past and HPR is nothing like anything I've attended before. They're very small, intimate, and hands-on approach to recovery was exactly what I was looking for when seeking treatment. I knew that a large, one size fits all program like those offered by many other treatment centers in Colorado wouldn't provide me with the help I desperately needed. Paul and his Team are incredible and I would highly recommend HPR to anyone who needs help starting their recovery journey. Big shout out to James for all of his guidance during my time at HPR. His grace, knowledge, understanding, and direction were/are key to my continued success in recovery. One HUGE piece of the puzzle I love is the after care I've received from HPR... I am in constant contact with Paul, James, and many other staff members through the their alumni programs and it has helped me so much with life after HPR. This program was truly a miracle in my life and I know it will be for many other men struggling with addiction and/or alcoholism. You'll get your life back!

This is truly a great recovery facility.

My learning experience here was something I’ll take with me throughout my whole life. The staff here will always be a part of my family and I am beyond thankful for everything they have done and continue to do for my well-being.

Gunnar P

I can't speak more highly of Healing Pines Recovery & Addiction Center.

It is located in a beautiful Colorado location with lots of outdoor activities and fresh air. They have a very knowledgeable and professional staff that goes above and beyond to meet your needs.

Riley K

I couldn’t have been at a more amazing place to begin this journey.

Seriously an amazing place. Everything from how beautiful the house and the property it sits on down to every person staffed there was nothing less than perfect. More than highly recommended in every sense. If you’re reading this and trying to find the right place for treatment and recovery I would absolutely look no further. Everyone’s recovery is different and we all need a comfortable place with people we can trust through this battle, healing pines understood that everyone’s path is different and they 100% cater to that. I couldn’t have been any luckier with finding Healing Pines. I won’t go any deeper and start to thank everyone there individually, But I want to express my gratitude to everyone on the HEALING PINES TEAM. Without you all, my path in sobriety would not look anywhere near the way it looks today. Seriously from the bottom of my heart thank you!

Healing Pines Men's-Only Heroin Treatment Center in Colorado

When you come to our facility for treatment, we will start with an assessment to determine what needs you have. This assessment might determine the best course of action, be it regular heroin addiction treatment, MAT, trauma treatment, or dual diagnosis treatment.

Healing Pines specializes in residential men’s only treatment for heroin addiction. Our heroin treatment center in Colorado is located outside of any major city, far enough away from distractions that you can let yourself relax without any outside stress. Designed as a rustic ranch, each client can enjoy top-of-the-line amenities along with a range of daily therapy sessions and services during their stay.

With heroin addiction, we start with medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for detox. The detox process comes with high risk, and symptoms begin within hours of your last dose. With our heroin treatment center in Colorado, you will be under medical supervision the entire time, with professionals who can administer medication, check vitals, and respond to unexpected complications. We work hard to prepare you for the heroin detox timeline by explaining what symptoms we anticipate and when. You can transition into sobriety in a comfortable and safe environment. 

If we determine that there is a history of trauma, we can offer heroin addiction treatment that bears that in mind. Our trauma and addiction treatment uses additional steps and trained professionals to avoid re-traumatization during any sessions or services we provide. 

For those clients with co-existing mental health disorders, our Colorado heroin addiction treatment center offers dual diagnosis treatment as well. With our dual diagnosis treatment, you can receive the following:

  • Detox
  • Individual and group therapy for heroin addiction
  • Therapy for depression, anxiety, PTSD, or other mental health issues
  • Mind and body treatment for heroin addiction and mental health disorders
  • Family therapy to address co-occurring disorders

With our professional heroin rehab in Colorado, we can not only keep you comfortable and dignified during these first several days and weeks, but we can help your body and brain recuperate from the effects of hero independence. We can work with you to treat any lingering mental health issues you might have using dual diagnosis programs and offer nutritional help as part of our body and mind services so that you can rebuild your physical and mental strength concurrently.
