Heroin addiction poses a grave issue, causing devastating consequences for individuals, families, and communities. The impact of heroin use is severe, bringing about intense cravings, withdrawal symptoms upon cessation, and lasting alterations to brain chemistry. Such changes impede sound decision-making, leading to involvement in risky behaviors. At Empower Recovery, our treatment helps individuals conquer this disease and reclaim their lives.
The journey into heroin addiction often begins with curiosity or the desire to fit in. As an opioid, heroin delivers an intense rush of euphoria that proves alluring and highly addictive. Initially, users may only experiment sporadically, even exerting some control over their intake. However, as tolerance builds and the body becomes dependent, addiction takes hold. Discontinuing use may trigger severe withdrawal symptoms, which can compel individuals to persist with usage despite the inherent risks and negative consequences. The toll of heroin addiction extends beyond physical and mental health, detrimentally impacting relationships with loved ones.
Fortunately, heroin addiction treatment has made significant progress in recent years, offering a range of options to aid recovery. Tailored to individual needs, treatment typically incorporates a combination of behavioral therapy, medication, and peer recovery support. Empower Recovery provides accessible treatment to facilitate addiction recovery and restore a healthy, fulfilling life.

I had a great experience at Empower Recovery. I initially had planned on only going for 28 days, not fully committed to getting sober and ended up staying for 82 and now am over 3 months sober. The staff are great and everything is well organized. Meals are good as well. They put you on a great track for success in your sobriety and mental health. The location is great for attending plenty of actually fun AA/NA meetings. The weekend excursions around the LA area are an added bonus too! I’ll miss a lot of people I met out there and have made some life long friends. I highly recommend Empower if you are looking for help. -
Came out here to help with a meth addiction. My life had become unmanageable. Thanks to the staff here and the programs and tools they taught me, I know have the tools needed for long term sobriety. Pat, Daniel, Carissa, Olivia and Austin are some of the best staff here. Daniel & Pat especially always treated every single person with respect and dignity they deserved. If wasn’t for Empower I don’t know where my life would be at. Thank you to the team and atmosphere Empower has. The facility’s are nice, The staff is friendly and the atmosphere is great.awesome here. If you are hesitant about coming, please, it will be the best decision you have ever made!
