Opioid + Opiate Addiction Treatment in New Orleans, LA

Opioid addiction is when someone becomes addicted to opioids. This can happen quickly due to any opioid use. Opioid withdrawal can be uncomfortable and lead the user to continue using even if they want to quit. It’s best to receive inpatient treatment for detoxification.

Even if a person doesn’t need inpatient treatment, it’s recommended to start rehabilitation or at least some kind of outpatient treatment. This is because the withdrawal symptoms from opioids can be uncomfortable and unpleasant, to the point that a person could end up using again or worse.

Detoxification should be done to break the physical addiction of opioids. This can be done with opioid replacement therapy, medication-assisted therapy, or a more traditional detoxification program. 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.

IOP is a step up from drug detoxification or alcohol detox. However, it’s still considered a phase of recovery rather than the ultimate goal. There are many rehabs and treatment facilities available to patients in need of IOP.

Outpatient treatment consists of counseling and therapy sessions. The outpatient treatment process begins with the addict’s initial detox period, lasting about ten days. Outpatient treatment is used for those who are at moderate risk for “slipping back” into the addiction. It is also used for those who are not currently experiencing any side effects from withdrawal, can handle social pressure, have a stable living environment, and have a good support system.

Therapies & Programs

Family therapy is a crucial part of drug treatment and getting sober. It is one of the most effective ways to help addicts stay on the path to long-term sobriety. One of the most important parts of family therapy is the relapse prevention plan. During treatment, therapists and doctors will often sit down with the addict and their family to develop a plan if the addict ever feels like they want to use again. This plan should involve steps the addict and family can take together to prevent them from relapsing in the future.

An addict’s family can play a vital part in helping them to avoid relapse because they can spot the warning signs and help them get back on track before it becomes too much of a problem. Family therapy is one of the most effective ways to help addicts stay on the path to long-term sobriety.

It is recommended that all group members be recovering addicts for this type of therapy to work.

This type of therapy involves the use of a variety of therapeutic techniques to help addicts recover from past traumas that might have triggered their substance abuse. During these sessions, therapists will work with the addict to address painful memories and learn how to cope effectively with stressors as they arise.

During these types of sessions, therapists will typically focus on three main goals:

  1. Identifying and expressing painful emotions associated with past traumas.
  2. Reducing the effects of stress on an addict’s life by developing more effective coping mechanisms.
  3. Developing healthy ways of thinking about stressful situations that can help addicts avoid substance abuse issues in the future.

This type of therapy is typically used in conjunction with other types of addiction treatment services. By identifying and dealing with the root cause of addiction, most addicts can overcome their cravings and prevent relapse once they leave rehab.

Many different types of addiction treatment services exist to help addicts safely get sober, but it’s important for recovering individuals to find a therapist or support group that will help them address the root cause of their addiction.
