Heroin abuse is on the rise in New Mexico, which already leads the nation in per-capita heroin overdose deaths. Duke City Recovery Toolbox in Albuquerque is on the front lines of the battle against heroin abuse, providing comprehensive treatment for the body, mind and spirit.
Medication-Assisted Treatment for Heroin Abuse
Heroin delivers a powerful “high,” and consequently, extremely uncomfortable withdrawal. Willpower is often not enough to get someone through the discomfort of withdrawal so that they can continue with their recovery process.
Treatment medications, such as methadone and suboxone, can prevent heroin withdrawal symptoms. These medications have longer-lasting effects and are legally available to eligible participants.
More than Medication for Treatment
Medication is only one part of a comprehensive treatment program at Duke City Recovery Toolbox. In order for participants to truly be free of addiction, they must address the reasons they turned to heroin in the first place. That’s where therapy comes into play.
We offer individual counseling to help you recognize triggers and develop healthy coping strategies, and we offer family therapy to help heal relationships damaged by heroin addiction.
Start Your Heroin Abuse Recovery Journey
Duke City Recovery Toolbox can help you recover your life from heroin abuse. To start a personalized addiction recovery program, you need to complete an intake appointment. Contact us to schedule an appointment or visit our clinic between 6:00 and 8:00 am Monday through Thursday.
Participants eligible for medication-assisted treatment will receive their first dose the same day as their intake appointment. We do everything we can to get you through the discomfort of the early stages of recovery so that you can continue on your path to a heroin-free life.
