At Cirque Lodge, we understand how devastating heroin addiction is.
According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, around 20% of people who try heroin will become addicted. Heroin addiction quickly dominates every facet of our lives, and we suffer extremely unpleasant withdrawal symptoms if we stop without medical supervision. However, it is possible to recover from heroin addiction and live a fruitful and fulfilling life.
Recovery at Cirque Lodge starts with medical detox, where we slowly reduce the physical hold heroin has on your body. Then, in your customized therapy program, you can start to explore your addiction mentally.
As any former addict will tell you, recovery requires constant maintenance. 12-step groups such as Heroin Anonymous are a fantastic way to continue your journey of recovery. They center on spiritual development and staying abstinent through altruism. We use the principles of the 12-steps as the bedrock of our recovery program, so you will be very familiar with them by the time you graduate.
