The Malvern Private Hospital specialises in many facets of addiction treatment and rehabilitation, and heroin drug addiction and abuse are a major part of our intensive care treatment programs offered at our heroin rehabilitation centre in Melbourne.
At the Melbourne drug rehabilitation clinic, we provide a comprehensive program offering not only withdrawal treatment from heroin abuse and addiction, but also our successful range of therapies and tutorials that focus on mind, body and soul so that an individual can be restored to optimal health. During heroin rehab, we work with those who abuse or are addicted to heroin (diacetylmorphine, morphine diacetate, and diamorphine)—its common labels in street terminology are: Smack, Hammer, Slow and H.
A client’s recovery from heroin addiction is of vital importance to us and we pride ourselves at our Melbourne heroin rehabilitation clinic on having the best highly skilled psychiatrists, addiction medicine specialists, and general practitioners to oversee a client’s medical needs during their admission.
The admission and referral process is initially via the phone and can be done by self-referral, GP or by other clinicians such as psychologists and counsellors.

The Heroin Abuse Treatment Recovery Program
The heroin abuse treatment recovery program includes: Detox (withdrawal), rehabilitation, and abstinence, and our tailored care solutions are custom specialised to suit each individual whether it be as an inpatient, or an outpatient utilising the day care centre.
Heroin detox is a vital stage in our treatment therapy in Melbourne. During the detoxification process we ensure our clients are comfortable and that their physical condition is closely monitored. We encourage non-drug alternatives whenever possible during the detox period, and work together as a team to support clients during the entire process.
During the heroin rehab phase we employ a range of therapeutic approaches to recovery, all facilitated by our friendly team of highly trained, experienced, and dedicated staff. Psychological interventions include: Cognitive behavioural therapies and role-play scenarios, individual/group counseling sessions, listen/talk problem solving programs, art therapy, exercise and relaxation sessions, intensive group therapy, and healthy ways to reduce anxiety and improve sleep.
Permanent abstinence from heroin drug abuse and addiction is our top priority for our clients. At our drug rehab centre in Melbourne we use a ‘formal discharge plan’ to significantly increase the likelihood of success from heroin addiction following an individual’s discharge, and as well as family support, we liaise with recovery support accommodation providers regarding aftercare.
