Understanding the life of a person with a heroin addiction

What Does It Look Like to Struggle With Heroin?

  • Their life is often controlled by their heroin addiction
  • They may always be afraid that they will be arrested while buying heroin or when they have it in their possession
  • They have to hide their heroin addiction from their family and friends
  • They are always planning their lives around being able to get their next dose
  • They are always making excuses for why they need to borrow money and eventually run out of money from legal sources to feed their heroin addiction
  • They may begin to do illegal acts that they never would have considered because they are controlled by their heroin addiction
  • They make excuses about their always seeming to be sick
  • They make excuses for their appearance and the way that they dress
  • They start associating with other heroin addicts or drug addicts because they don’t feel that they are being “judged”
  • They know that if they continue with their heroin addiction, they will end up like the other heroin addicts they have seen—in jail or dead from an overdose
  • They know that they are trapped but see no way to escape the trap of heroin addiction.

From one of our patients:

“When I came in I was an emotional and physical wreck. So many problems in my life accumulated that I didn’t care about getting clean anymore. Coming here is exactly what I needed to clean my mind and body. I have been through other detox centers that were not that great. I was totally comfortable the whole time I was here… great amenities, great food, great location. I feel amazing. Thank you, Novus. Thank you for helping me through the toughest time in my life.”

From one of our patients:

“Today will be my last full day at Novus Detox® and I can’t believe these words are coming out of my mouth because my biggest goal my entire life has been to get myself out of the institutions I get myself into (jails, detox and rehabs) and if I could, I would stay. This place is amazing. The staff goes above and beyond to satisfy your every need. The hope you feel during your stay is incredible.

“I came in here completely hopeless and on the verge of suicide and I’ll be leaving feeling like a brand new person…. I have never been taken such good care of in my entire life. Anyone looking to better their life by stopping their use of drugs needs to come here. I have been through SEVERAL detoxes and rehabs and never have I enjoyed my stay even one bit. Novus, I absolutely LOVE this place and I’m sad that I have to leave but also at the same time feel a sense of hope that Novus has instilled into me that I cannot recall ever feeling in my life. Thank you Novus, you have gone above and beyond for me.”

Why You Have Pain and Need a Medically-Supervised Heroin Detox

Endorphins are the body’s natural painkillers and mood elevators. Your body’s production of endorphins is artificially increased by heroin, morphine, methadone, Vicodin, hydrocodone, oxycodone, OxyContin and other opioids and opiates.

As you use heroin, fewer and fewer natural endorphins are produced by your body as it becomes more and more dependent on heroin to produce endorphins. Stop heroin and there are insufficient endorphins produced by the body. This causes the severe and physically painful heroin withdrawal symptoms and because of the pain, almost no one can complete a heroin withdrawal on their own.

    From one of our patients:

    “After 15 years of IV heroin and opiate use Novus helped me realize that I can make my decisions possible. I never believed there was a detox facility that could truly make the withdrawal of 15 years of hardcore addiction tolerable.

    “Make no mistake, you are going to have to bear some mild withdrawal symptoms, but, if you can make someone with 15 years of heroin addiction eat 3 meals a day and sleep comfortably, in my mind it was nothing short of a miracle.”

      Ideal Solution for Heroin Detox Treatment

      At Novus Detox, you can comfortably and safely recover from your heroin addiction under 24/7 medical supervision. Our medical staff will not put you on prescription drugs or methadone, which is another addictive drug, that keeps you in the trap of heroin addiction and forces you to a continued life of drug dependency.

      Instead, we use IV’s to replenish the hydration, nutrients, amino acids and minerals depleted by heroin to make the body and its organs stronger, as well as natural supplements and medications as needed. As you feel better, we can help you find a rehabilitation program that gets real results.

      Another recent patient said:
      “It was great. Best detox place I’ve been. Staff was very nice and went beyond expectations to make sure I was all right. All of the staff were great. They all went above and beyond what they had to do.”


      We develop an individualized medical detox program specifically for each of our patients, which means no recovery will look the same. Our delicious food, nutritional IVs and supplements, and specialized detox protocols are all designed to quicken the healing process. We understand that various addictions present a number of issues for the human body, so we create our IVs and diets to fit the needs of specific withdrawal symptoms.

      Our process is all about you, which is why we have private and shared rooms available for our residents. Each room is outfitted with a TV, telephone, and access to the internet. We also provide educational classes that will show you how the drug or alcohol of your choice affects your body. We believe that to effectively fight off your withdrawal symptoms, it is important to know what you are fighting against and what to be prepared for.
