Opioid + Opiate Addiction Treatment in Alamosa, CO
Opioid abuse has become a national epidemic in the last decade. The US has one of the world’s highest rates of opioid use and abuse, as well as opioid-related deaths. Opioids are classified as Schedule II-IV controlled substances in the US due to their high potential for abuse.
Oxycodone, hydrocodone, methadone, and fentanyl are the most common Opioids and are commonly prescribed to treat pain. Tolerance to opioids develops over time, making life difficult, if not impossible, without them. Opioid users often obtain the drugs illegally. They can be drug dealers, friends, or family members who do not have valid prescriptions.
The desire for a more intense high than prescription opioids can quickly lead to heroin use. Heroin users are more prone to illness and death due to the high risk of overdose.
Many opioid addicts who seek treatment believe that the only way to overcome their addiction is through medical detox and long-term drug addiction rehab. To help patients wean off their addiction and reduce the risk of overdose, medication-assisted therapy (MAT) involves prescribing a replacement opioid. Doctors use MAT in conjunction with other anti-craving medications to help patients maintain recovery. Due to the high risk of relapse, MAT is often combined with individual and group counseling and social support programs.
When addiction and psychiatric issues co-occur, the addict’s recovery is more successful when both conditions are treated. A dual diagnosis refers to a condition in which the patient is diagnosed with two health issues: addiction and bipolar disorder. The most common therapies are psychotherapy, behavioral therapy, spiritual counseling, 12-step programs, and medication management.

The detoxification process typically includes some combination of the following: medical supervision, medication to help alleviate withdrawal symptoms, drug testing to monitor progress, and counseling.
Tackling the physical symptoms of withdrawal is essential to ensure that an individual can focus on the psychological aspects of the addiction without focusing on the physical pain that comes with withdrawal.
Withdrawal symptoms can be uncomfortable, even life-threatening, so carefully managing the detox process is extremely important. In many cases, more advanced pharmaceutical interventions are used to treat more severe withdrawal symptoms. Medication might help alleviate discomfort associated with detox, including nausea and headaches.
Intensive Outpatient (IOP)
Intensive outpatient treatment is a form of addiction care that allows patients to continue living at home while undergoing treatment. This type of care is appropriate for patients who have been treated in residential treatment programs. Intensive outpatient programs include regular visits to the facility providing therapy, and patients gradually return to their routine life. IOP benefits most when patients have a supportive family member or friend to help them recover.
The first step to getting into an intensive outpatient program is to attend a detoxification facility. Detoxification facilities are designed to remove substances from the body safely. The patient will attend sessions designed to help them understand their addiction and its impact on their lives. While in an intensive outpatient program, therapy sessions are scheduled three to five times per week, with the patient attending no more than two sessions in one day.

An outpatient can include day treatments which include attending group sessions one hour per week. A person living in an outpatient environment may be allowed the opportunity to work full time if they choose to and continue studies without interruption from drugs/alcohol.
Outpatient treatment is an option for people who want to maintain their careers and families. Outpatients live at home but attend treatment such as individual counseling, group counseling, or twelve-step meetings during the day.
Aftercare support is vital to the success of someone in drug or alcohol treatment. It involves assisting with entering a sober living home, getting career counseling or educational assistance and even getting the individual lined up with programs like AA and NA. This support helps recovering addicts readjust to normal day-to-day activities and maintain sobriety.
When a person is in drug or alcohol treatment, they have to increase their focus on themselves. They need to learn how to recognize the triggers that cause them to relapse and learn the habits that would benefit them if they were to be sober. This is all part of the growth in recovery, and aftercare is essential to that process.

Creative arts therapy is an expressive process that helps people in recovery explore feelings and emotions. While the goal isn’t always to create a final product, it’s therapeutic for many patients. They can express themselves by journaling or other forms of creative expression. Activities include sketching, painting, sculpting, etcetera. All help them handle stress and anxiety better than before their addiction (and even when they were). The activity improves communication skills and the ability to process traumatic events from one’s past, often triggered during periods of withdrawal/relapse. This benefit makes this form of treatment popular among addicts who don’t want prescription drugs but need something more substantial than talk sessions with counselors.
Experiential Therapy at 1st Alliance Treatment Services - Alamosa
Experiential Therapy is a different way of thinking about addiction treatment. It uses physical activities to help work through troubling emotions, memories, and trauma that are sources of psychological issues like addiction.

The non-traditional approach helps people deal more effectively with these struggles. It also allows them to gain new perspectives on their behavior patterns by recreating experiences in healthy ways rather than continuing old habits that may no longer serve them.
