    Some addicts can benefit from substance abuse treatment, which is designed to help them become and remain sober without the use of medications. These programs are typically used by those struggling with drugs like marijuana or hallucinogens. However, they might be beneficial for those with a co-occurring mental health disorder like schizophrenia, major depression or bipolar disorder.

    During this type of treatment, the addict will meet with therapists and other professionals on a regular basis to learn coping skills and healthy ways to deal with their addiction and mental health disorder.

    Treatment programs often combine medications with counseling, support groups and even medical services like those found in hospitals or doctor’s offices. There are also detoxification services that addicts can use to get sober and avoid severe withdrawal symptoms.

    Opioids are a group of drugs that include substances such as heroin, morphine, and oxycodone. These drugs activate opioid receptors in the brain, which produce pleasurable feelings. Opioid addiction occurs when drugs are abused at increasing rates or increasing amounts because the body becomes tolerant of them.

    Opioid addiction is typically diagnosed when drug abuse becomes a typical behavior that interferes with an individual’s ability to function daily. The use of the substance results in consequences like legal problems.

    Treatment for opioid addiction varies depending on each individual’s needs. Some treatments focus on replacing opioids with other drugs that have similar effects of reducing withdrawal symptoms. Other treatments aim to reduce the risk of relapse by providing psychological support or using more natural methods.

    Detox, or detoxification, is the method of weaning a person’s body from the toxic substance(s) they have abused. This is a slow process under medical supervision and one that should occur for almost all individuals. As detox can cause medical complications, it should always be performed by experienced medical professionals in a safe setting.

    An intensive outpatient program is usually the first phase of addiction treatment. It provides relief for those addicted, but not ready to commit to an inpatient setting. IOPs consist of a daily 3 to 5-hour program, and there is a required number of hours per week. The goal here is to teach patients healthy coping skills, such as stress management.

    Outpatient programs offer a lower intensity level of addiction treatment than inpatient facilities. They are ideal for those who have graduated from inpatient facilities, have a supportive home environment, and are motivated to commit to the program. Services offered include medication-assisted treatment, individual and group therapy, and peer group support.

    This treatment is a popular option for those suffering from a lower intensity addiction. It is not advisable for someone who needs to go through a medically supervised detox or does not have a supportive home environment. It requires motivation and dedication to commit to the program without constant monitoring.
