Millions of men and women of all age groups and all income levels are affected by heroin addiction. Not only are people just like you are using heroin, many are also using other substances like cocaine and prescription opioids at the same time.
Restored Path Detox is a place where you can recover quickly and safely.
At Restored Path Detox, we understand how difficult heroin withdrawal can be. Often, withdrawal symptoms are so severe that many people return to using within 24 hours. The key to overcoming this obstacle is medically monitored detox, where your withdrawal symptoms can be identified and treated immediately.
Restored Path Detox provides 24-hour medical supervision and care. We ensure you have a safe, secure, and comfortable detox so you can start your recovery journey.
We match you with a combination of effective detoxification techniques to provide comfortable, caring, and integrated care. We’ll prescribe targeted medications to alleviate your symptoms of heroin withdrawal while simultaneously preventing dangerous symptoms.

Heroin is an opioid that triggers specific naturally occurring neurotransmitters like dopamine to activate mu-opioid receptors (MORs) in the reward center of the brain. These MORs regulate pain, hormone release, and feelings of well-being.
The consequences of activating opioid receptors with heroin (versus naturally occurring chemicals within our bodies) depend on a variety of factors. The amount of heroin used, its bind location in your brain and body, how strongly it binds, how long, how quickly it gets there, and what happens afterward all affect your ability to stop using heroin.
Anyone is susceptible to heroin addiction, but the epidemic is primarily fueled by young men and women between 18 and 25.
Among people aged 12 or older in 2020, 0.3% (or about 902,000 people) reported using heroin within the year.
In 2020, approximately 13,165 people died from an overdose.
Heroin addiction is non-discriminatory. The signs and symptoms vary among users based upon genetic makeup, amount of drug used, frequency of use, and level of dependency on the drug. We understand this and will help personalize your detox.
Behavioral symptoms include:
Lying about drug use
Decreased personal hygiene
Inability to fulfill responsibilities
Apathy and lack of motivation
Continuing to use heroin despite negative personal consequences
Unable to cut back or quit for any significant amount of time
Neglecting personal responsibilities
Avoiding previously joyful activities
Legal and financial troubles
Stealing from others
Physical symptoms include:
Shortness of breath
Frequent respiratory infections
“Nodding off” during conversations
Cognitive symptoms include:
Psychosocial symptoms include:
Like many others, you may spend a great deal of time obtaining, using, and recovering from heroin, and as you develop physical tolerance, more heroin is required for the same effects to be produced. It is easy for anyone to become stuck in the cycle of obsession and compulsion. We understand intense psychological drug cravings.
When heroin use is stopped suddenly, you may experience symptoms such as:
Mild or moderate anxiety
Flu-like respiratory and gastrointestinal issues
As your withdrawal progresses, your symptoms may include:
More severe anxiety
Rapid heart rate
Insomnia and other sleep-related issues
Intense psychological drug cravings
Nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea
Extreme agitation and irritability
Severe abdominal cramping
General aches and pains
