Hawthorne, New Jersey, has a serious problem with drug dependence and addiction, with heroin, alcohol, and cocaine being the most commonly abused substances there.
Roughly 42% of admissions to Hawthorne drug rehab centers are for heroin, while only 3% of admissions are for other opiates, like oxycodone and fentanyl.1 Many Hawthorne residents who suffer from heroin dependence may have used other opiates first, since nearly 80% of Americans who use heroin report misusing prescription painkillers before switching to heroin.2
Heroin and opioid painkiller withdrawal can be highly uncomfortable and unpleasant, but it isn’t typically life-threatening.3 Many opioid withdrawal symptoms can be relieved using medications such as clonidine, buprenorphine, and methadone.4 These medications may be used by rehab centers as part of your detox treatment.
Common opioid withdrawal symptoms include:4
Withdrawal symptoms for short-acting opioids, like, heroin may last between 4 and 10 days, while symptoms for long-acting opiates, like methadone, may last between 10 and 20 days.4 For up to 6 months following this acute opioid withdrawal phase, you may continue experiencing strong cravings for opioids that increase your risk for relapse.4 However, therapies like cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and relapse prevention training may be offered at rehab centers to help you stay sober in the long run.5
