Why is heroin detoxification important for addiction recovery?                     

When people who are addicted to heroin try to quit, they can experience severe withdrawal symptoms including pain, diarrhea, nausea and vomiting. Medically supervised detoxification, including the use of medications to minimize the severity of withdrawal symptoms, can help make the heroin detox process more manageable. Medications developed to treat opioid addiction activate the same receptors as the drug, but with less harmful and severe side effects. These medications help soothe the pain of withdrawal symptoms so patients can constructively participate in behavioral therapies. Cognitive behavioral therapy has been shown to be an especially effective treatment system for addressing heroin addiction when used in conjunction with medication management following supervised heroin detoxification, reports the National Institute on Drug Abuse.
