    Opiate Addiction Treatment

    An opiate addiction is a disease that infiltrates the brain and wreaks havoc on vital organs. The only way to overcome this dependence is with addiction treatment. Treatment often takes place at an inpatient or outpatient rehab center, and incorporates a variety of different therapies, medications and other helpful tools.

    The length of time needed for treatment varies with each individual. For some people, treatment taking place over the course of a 30-, 60- or 90-day program provides them with the tools needed to maintain sobriety. However, others may choose to stay in treatment after 90 days to ensure the best chances of staying sober throughout recovery.

    If you’re ready to begin the recovery process, act now. Overcoming an addiction may be one of the hardest things you’ll ever do, but going to rehab will be the best decision you’ll ever make.

    Opiate Addiction Treatment Centers

    There are thousands of treatment centers located across the United States that are equipped to help people break free from an opiate addiction.

    Treatment centers should address both the physical and psychological facets of addiction. Many treatment centers also offer on-site medical detoxification programs to help ease any withdrawal symptoms.

    Take a look at some of the most well-known rehabs below. If you’re looking for a center in a specific location, browse our list of top-rated treatment options.

    What to Expect During Opiate Addiction Treatment

    A person’s treatment experience often depends on the type of facility chosen, the severity of the addiction and any co-occurring conditions, such as a mental health disorder, that may be present.

    The intake process is different at every center. However, this is a good opportunity to discuss what lies ahead with health professionals. During this time, health professionals may ask you questions regarding your past and current substance abuse, relevant medical conditions and home life. It’s important that health professionals gather this information so they can develop the most effective treatment plan possible.

    Detox: The First Step Toward Recovery

    Once the intake process is complete, patients may begin their treatment in a medical detoxification program. Detox is used because many patients with an addiction to opiates will experience withdrawal symptoms in the first few days of rehab. These symptoms can be highly uncomfortable and dangerous to endure without the help of medical detox professionals.

    Detox helps patients safely undergo the withdrawal process. Typically, doctors use a tapering method to gradually ease a person off of the addictive substance until they are no longer dependent. This involves slowly reducing the amount of a substance being consumed until it is cleared from the patient’s system. Sometimes, a doctor may also prescribe medications during detox to help reduce certain opiate withdrawal symptoms, such as insomnia.

    Choosing a Rehab: The Next Step Toward Sobriety

    After detox, patients are recommended to continue their recovery at a rehab center. Most treatment programs fall into two categories: inpatient and outpatient rehab.

    Inpatient rehabs are residential treatment programs that offer around-the-clock medical care and emotional support. These intensive programs take place in a structured, drug-free environment, allowing patients to focus solely on their goals for sobriety. Patients are encouraged to take an active role in their recovery by participating in any on-site activities and therapies that the center may offer.

    On the other hand, outpatient rehabs provide a more flexible recovery option for patients who wish to remain at home during treatment. Patients in an outpatient rehab visit a local treatment center several times a week to attend therapy sessions, support group meetings and drug education seminars. Each of the components of an outpatient program focus on teaching patients how to rebuild their lives – free of drugs or alcohol.

    It’s important to note that outpatient rehabs are best suited for someone with a mild addiction. This is because a person participating in an outpatient treatment program may still be surrounded by environmental triggers that can lead to relapse. A person who struggles with a chronic addiction should strongly consider an inpatient program.

      Aftercare Services: The Final Step In Maintaining Recovery

      For many people, the first few months after rehab can be difficult. This is because individuals are faced with the unique challenge of managing their recovery, while also re-adjusting to a normal routine. In order to stay focused and motivated in recovery, it’s important to establish an aftercare plan that incorporates ongoing therapy sessions, support group meetings and healthy lifestyle habits.

      Aftercare services are an important part of the recovery process. They help many people stay motivated as they embark on their lifelong recovery journey.

      An aftercare plan helps reinforce the lessons learned in rehab. It also helps to control any temptations a person may experience during the first few months and years of the recovery process.

      Types of continuing care services to include in your recovery plan include:

      In addition to continuing care services, there are plenty of fun activities a person in recovery can participate in that do not encourage drug or alcohol use. These sober activities provide a creative, mental and social outlet.

      Some of the most popular sober activities or hobbies a person in recovery can adopt include:

      • Recreational sports
      • Volunteering
      • Learning to play a musical instrument
      • Taking a fitness class, such as yoga or kickboxing
      • Cooking your favorite foods
      • Arts and crafts

      Millions of individuals have successfully recovered from an opiate addiction and gone on to lead happy, fulfilling lives. However, achieving and maintaining sobriety is not something that happens overnight. It will take significant dedication and a strong drive to make your long-term recovery goals a reality.
