Heroin Addiction Treatment in Vermont

Get Started Today

Our team at Sana at Stowe recognizes the devastating impact heroin addiction has on individuals and their loved ones. We know heroin use disorders arise from various mental and physical conditions, meaning treatment must account for each unique case. Seek treatment with us for a caring and comprehensive approach focused on the individual’s safety and comfort.

Our heroin use disorder treatment includes detox, residential care, and ongoing support to continue the positive results achieved during treatment. Treatment occurs in our luxurious mountain retreat in Vermont, offering a place to get away and seek healing.

Understanding Heroin Addiction

Heroin is an opioid drug made from morphine, which comes from certain poppy plants. It creates euphoric sensations, followed by a twilight state between sleep and wakefulness. Heroin is highly addictive because it reaches the brain quickly and causes a release of dopamine, leading individuals to seek the same sensation repeatedly.

While it has pleasurable short-term effects, heroin’s long-term effects can harm the body. These effects include damage to the brain, which causes decreased decision-making abilities and less control over behavior and impacts responses to stressful situations. Other medical complications may consist of insomnia, constipation, respiratory problems, mental disorders, and sexual dysfunction. Overdose and death can occur as well and has increased with the introduction of Fentanyl.

At Sana, we provide consistent monitoring and 24/7 access to medical personnel during detox. We also offer medication-assisted treatment as necessary to reduce cravings and treat withdrawal symptoms.
