Heroin Addiction Treatment

AppleGate Recovery offers treatment and counseling for heroin addiction in Lake Charles, LA.

Heroin is a highly addictive opioid that is responsible for the largest percentage of all drug-related deaths. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, from 2010 to 2016, heroin-related deaths increased by more than five times.  Heroin has been known to cause addiction after just one use due to its strong effect on the brain. Like other opioids, heroin triggers chemical releases that are similar to feelings of pleasure.

At AppleGate Recovery in Lake Charles, our medication-assisted treatment program uses buprenorphine to help you or your loved one break the cycle of heroin addiction. Suboxone® and other buprenorphine compounds, such as Zubsolv® and Bunavail®, can help ease the symptoms of heroin withdrawal and reduce the risk of relapse. Following addiction treatment, we offer addiction counseling and ongoing support services to help the patient throughout their recovery.

Our Lake Charles location offers:

  • Medical supervision and evaluation
  • Individual and group substance abuse counseling
  • Case management services
  • Ongoing medical and social assessment
