In some circumstances medications can be used to manage opioid addiction.

    Detox is the first step of rehab. It involves giving a person time to get the toxins out of their body. During detox, the patient gets ill, and they will often start using again to get rid of these unpleasant feelings. That’s why it’s important to have a medical professional at Atrium Health Kings Mountain present. A medical professional will make sure patients don’t start using during detox.

Trauma therapy refers to treatment wherein specialist therapists help the patients to resolve the trauma that led the patients to substance abuse. The trauma could be physical abuse, sexual abuse, war, natural disasters, divorce, accident, loss of a loved one, etc. Thinking of these traumatic events causes emotional disturbances like anxiety, depression and results in addiction.

As humans we are wired to recreate experiences that lead to positive feelings. Through this method incentives are used for completing positive steps towards a sober life. This may be a reward for attending meetings, remaining sober or for employment goals.
