    With so many people struggling with opioid addiction, opioid addiction treatment is more critical than ever before. Patients often take opioids when they face a painful injury.

Most opioid addiction treatment facilities start with detox and move to rehabilitation services while providing medical support during the process.

    Drug Detox

    Detox is a drug rehab process that begins before the actual drug rehab treatment. It is used to remove any residual toxins left in your body (and brain) after using drugs, and it is used with the intent to help you or your loved one complete drug rehab.

    If you are addicted to opiates like heroin, methadone, or prescription painkillers, you will detox with medication.

It makes it easier for the counselor and the patient to deal with the central issues, which are likely the culprits of substance addiction.

    Couples Therapy

    Going through couple’s therapy at Brown County Human Services Department in Wisconsin allows for both partners to be on the same page regarding addiction recovery. Whether one or both members of the couple struggled with addiction, they can both improve the odds of recovery with couple’s therapy. This teaches how to communicate effectively, avoid relapse triggers, and build a healthy lifestyle to maintain sobriety.

    Family Counseling + Therapy

    Families are not always as supportive as they could be, but by opting for family therapy, many recovering addicts are able to understand their addiction and get the support they need to get sober. These therapy sessions at Brown County Human Services Department in Green Bay, WI involve all members of the family who play a role in the recovering person’s daily life. They work together to overcome past issues, avoid triggers, and remain strong and supportive of each other.

    In group therapy, the patient undergoes sessions with other patients dealing with similar problems under the guidance of a trained counselor. The members of the group interact with each other and talk freely about their issues. The recovery of members of the group from the problems that they face gives the patients confidence that they can also overcome their addiction.

    Group therapy at Brown County Human Services Department reduces the feeling of loneliness and improves the coping skills of the patients.
