We’re grateful they’re grateful.
If you are looking for a place to really try to change your life, Muse is a great place! The staff were all so in tune with what I was going through. If I ever had a problem, or was feeling like using, I could go to them and they'd talk to me. It didn’t matter what time of the day or night it was. I had never had people who cared about me so much that weren’t family. I still stay in touch with people I went through the house with, we go to meetings and go surfing and other things I never did when I was loaded. It’s a great life, and I really never thought I would be so happy.
I’ve been through 5 other detox programs and was pretty sure none of them would ever work. I decided to give it one more try before just resigning to being a junky the rest of my life. I found Muse and I have to say I am pretty surprised. I have over 8 months clean and it’s more time than I’ve had the last 11 years. All the groups were great, and the neuro-feedback was something I haven’t seen anywhere else. I still see my therapist and I am so happy. I am very grateful to Muse!
I never wanted to go to treatment. I always thought I could quit on my own. I tried myself dozens of times but always went back. I could stay quit for a day or two but never more. I didn’t know what to do. I thought I would die and never thought I could live without my drug. When I finally realized that I needed some help I was terrified. The staff at Muse really knew what I was going through. They had been through it themselves and showed me the way. I have never been sober this long in my life, and if I keep doing what I’m doing, what they taught me, I think I’ll stay sober.
I stayed at Muse Sober Living for two months. When I arrived I was very emotionally and spiritually sick. My drug and alcohol dependence nearly took my life on several occasions. The structure of being surrounded by others in recovery, having chores, going to meetings and never knowing when I would get tested helped me to stay sober long enough to let the program work me. Today I am grateful to say I am clean and sober for just under a year now. My life today, inside and out, is 180 degrees away in the right direction.
Muse utilizes an integrated approach to healing the brain. While most facilities focus on one general area, we emphasize a holistic, whole-brain approach in our drug rehab, alcohol treatment and dual diagnosis programs…

Many people addicted to heroin started out using prescription medication like OxyContin and Vicodin. Once dependent on opioids, people may find that heroin is less expensive, and sometimes easier to obtain. Heroin is extremely addictive, and unfortunately an increasingly large number of people die from overdoses every year.
The first step to heroin rehab is to go through a detox period. Depending on the length of addiction, how the drug was used, the amount of drug used each time, and the amount of drugs taken, withdrawal can take around a week to pass. During this time, you may experience moderate to severe withdrawal symptoms like nausea, abdominal pain, agitation, depression, nervousness, and cravings for drugs.
The length of heroin withdrawal is different for every person. It is a short-acting opioid, so symptoms can start within 6 to 12 hours of the last dose. They will peak around 72 hours, and last for up to ten days. People who have gone through a prior opioid withdrawal, or people with mental illnesses may need additional support. The act of withdrawing from heroin is not life threatening, but the complications that come with the medical and psychological symptoms can be.
Medically assisted treatment (MAT) is the recommended method for a safe and successful withdrawal period. At Muse Treatment we offer MAT, along with counselling, to help your body and brain recover from heroin dependence, while simultaneously taking care of your mental health. You may receive an FDA-approved, prescription amount of medication to satisfy cravings and stop withdrawal symptoms. You will be medically supervised 24 hours a day for safety. Under clinical conditions, and at the right amounts, these medications will not create a new addiction, and they will help reduce the risk of relapse.
During detox you will begin a therapy and counselling program to help with your emotional and mental healing. This will continue into one of our 30-, 60- or 90-day inpatient rehabilitation programs, followed by an outpatient and alumni program, which can last for as long as you want it to. We want you to feel ready in every way to take on life in the outside world without the use of drugs or alcohol. At Muse Treatment, you will gain new coping strategies and new supportive sober connections, and a new and healthy outlook on life.
When rehabilitating from any drug that creates a physical dependence, detox is necessary. A medically assisted treatment (MAT) is the recommended, most comfortable, and safe way to detox. At Muse Treatment, during MAT, clinical staff monitor your progress 24 hours a day, administering medication to manage withdrawal symptoms. Therapy and counseling are introduced early to help with emotional support to achieve the best results. Our goal is that nobody should suffer.
After detox, it is recommended to remain in our inpatient program, to gain the physical and mental health, skills and coping mechanisms, and the confidence to live your best sober life. Everybody overcoming addiction is different, so we offer various therapies, programs, and activities, to suit your individual goals and needs on your journey to recovery. We have a community-oriented facility with structured daily living, and you will be in a new environment where you can focus on yourself and your recovery without the distractions and stresses of everyday life.
Once you are ready to move on, we offer multiple outpatient options, and can recommend affiliated sober living homes. There is support every step of the way, that will set the foundation for a long-term, sustained recovery.
Crystal meth (methamphetamine) is a powerful man-made stimulant drug that can be made with easily obtained ingredients. It is also known as ice, shards, glass, and crank, and is snorted or smoked.
A meth comedown is not like withdrawal. It is caused by neurotransmitter imbalances in the brain, toxins in the body, and exhaustion. You may feel sad, hopeless or depressed, weak and tired, and have muscle pain, insomnia, and headaches. This can last for a few days, and is why people go on meth binges (also known as tweaking) . Tweaking can be deadly or cause long-term bodily harm to the user.
The timeline for methamphetamine withdrawal is about 20 days. It begins within 24 hours from the last drug use, peaks within 7-10 days, then steadily declines. The symptoms are mainly psychological and emotional, and do not seem to be severe on the body like heroin or alcohol is. You can expect feelings of lethargy and sleepiness, increased appetite, jitteriness, and dry mouth. Depression during this time is common, and some people have psychotic symptoms like hallucinations or paranoia. Every person is different, so at Muse Treatment we use a dual diagnosis to determine what your physical and mental health needs are during your stay.
During a medically assisted detox, there is access to 24-hour care, consistent therapeutic support, and medications given at prescription doses to mitigate discomfort, including antidepressants and SSRIs, medications for sleep regulation, or antipsychotics.
Once detox is completed, it is recommended to enter one of our 30-, 60- or 90-day inpatient rehabilitation programs, where you can continue working on your sobriety. The facilities are comfortable, and community oriented. You will be surrounded by non-judgmental staff, and peers going through the same thing as you in a healthy and sober environment, working on sobriety and recovery together and individually through a variety of therapies, programs, and activities.
After inpatient rehabilitation, there are different options for outpatient programs and sober living homes available, depending on your needs. Our network of alumni is also there as a community of supportive, sober peers, so you will never feel alone in your recovery.
Muse offers a continuum of care, beginning with our intake interview, where we determine how we can best help you achieve your individual goals for your recovery and your future. We want to make detox and rehab available to everybody who needs it, for as long as they need it.
Our medical detox program will get you off drugs and alcohol under safe, clinical care. It is tailored to your unique addiction, body, metabolism, and circumstances. Medications can be administered as needed to help with withdrawal symptoms, along with counselling, to keep patients comfortable as their body and brain safely adjust to being without the drug in their system.
At Muse, our multifaceted rehab program can be tailored to fit any needs. Our staff truly cares, and many of them are in recovery themselves. Our facilities are pet-friendly, and there is the option for couple’s rehab to work on sobriety together. You will be in a new environment under clinical supervision, with structured daily living and access to a variety of therapy options, support, and programs to prepare you for success.
Some of the therapies and programs offered at Muse include:
At Muse, we offer a full, 1-on-1 continuum of care, focusing on the root of addiction. We have a non-judgmental, supportive atmosphere where you can focus on yourself and your own recovery in a peaceful atmosphere. All care is trauma-informed, and administered by trained, experienced professionals. There is a large, interconnected community with locations around the country. The staff and the alumni network are there when you need them.
At Muse, we offer outpatient recovery programs for those who have completed our inpatient addiction treatment, as well as for people who cannot leave their responsibilities like work or family, and require a more flexible addiction treatment while remaining at home.
Our outpatient options include:
These treatments are offered with, or without housing. If preferred, we can refer you to an affiliated sober living home. In a sober home, you can reinforce the lessons and strategies learned in rehab by returning to work or school but living in a structured environment that holds you accountable for your actions. Residents will often have to actively participate in recovery programs, drug testing, and house rules like cleaning, curfews, and on-time fee payments. You will feel less isolated, and will have continued support in a sober home, while developing real-world coping strategies.
Everybody’s recovery is different, and at Muse, we will help guide you in a way that fits your unique requirements. Outpatient programs and sober living homes are options made to help you find a new, sober way to relate to your surroundings and live a happy and healthy life.
