Conditions and Issues Treated

Opioid + Opiate Addiction Treatment in Mckeesport, PA

Treatment for opioid addiction is best made with the help of medical professionals who are experienced in dealing with these types of drugs. This treatment can involve medications, exercise, behavioral therapy, and counseling sessions. It is important to note that the effectiveness of treatments for opioid addiction vary, so it is vital to research which treatment options are suitable for each individual.

Many people who struggle with opioid addiction need to attend specific programs like methadone , Suboxone or Vivitrol clinics.

These types of programs will provide the patient with legal, prescription medications that can help them overcome their cravings for illegal opioids like heroin or fentanyl . If the patient has a chronic condition like Hepatitis C, they must undergo treatment before they can begin taking these medications.

Dual-Diagnosis Treatment at First Step Recovery Homes

Individuals who are addicted to drugs and/or alcohol often have one or more co-occurring mental health disorders. Addressing both the addiction and the mental health problems at facilities like First Step Recovery Homes can be very beneficial for these individuals.

  • Anxiety Disorders – People with drug and alcohol problems often suffer from anxiety disorders such as panic disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, social anxiety disorder, and generalized anxiety disorder.
  • Depression – One of the most common mental illnesses co-occurring with addiction is major depressive disorder.
  • Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) – Many people with drug and alcohol problems also suffer from ADHD.
  • Bipolar Disorder – People with bipolar disorder are more likely to suffer from drug and alcohol problems than the general population, and vice versa.

Levels of Care

This center offers a variety of custom treatment tailored to individual recovery. Currently available are Aftercare Support, Dual-Diagnosis, Sober-Living / Half-Way, with additional therapies available as listed below.

Sober living homes are transitional houses for recovering addicts who need more structure than they would receive in an aftercare program. Specific rules and regulations are enforced in these homes, which are beneficial for people who need a greater degree of structure than other types of treatment.

Sober living home options include:

  • Live-in managers – might be beneficial to people who do not have a support system in place at home, or who experience high levels of stress between work and home life.
  • House managers – House managers are beneficial for people who do not have a strong social network to rely on, or who are concerned about relapse in their daily lives.
  • House parents – House parents are beneficial to people who reside in areas without a strong aftercare program for support.

Aftercare support is vital to those who have completed a drug or alcohol treatment program. This support comes in individual and family counseling, treatment of psychiatric and other medical conditions, and medications to reduce cravings. It helps recovering addicts adjust to normal day-to-day activities and can last for a year or longer.

The majority of drug and alcohol addicts who receive aftercare treatment do not relapse. It is estimated that without aftercare, the relapse rate will be between 70 to 90 percent for most people. Aftercare is the final stage in addiction recovery, but it will also help maintain sobriety if relapse does occur.

Therapies & Programs

Individual therapy is ideal for addicts who want to focus on themselves. It can also be helpful for those whose withdrawal symptoms are exacerbated by the presence of other people.

Benefits of individual therapy are:

  • Access to a personalized treatment plan that focuses on the individual needs of the addict
  • More privacy during treatment sessions
  • Better personal development through introspection
  • Increased self-awareness regarding addictive tendencies in order to avoid relapse
  • Greater potential for a long-term recovery plan
  • Receiving professional advice and detox assistance from medical staff

Family therapy can help you and your family deal with old issues that may trigger substance abuse. The idea behind family therapy for drug addiction is that you are never fully healed from substance abuse until you’ve healed your relationship with your family, too. To get sober, you need to find a different way to cope with the pain in your life.

This is when a group of people in various stages of recovery meet up and discuss their experiences, triggers, successes, failures, and even alternative therapies! Unlike support groups where everyone already knows each other, group therapy is conducted along side outpatient or inpatient treatment at First Step Recovery Homes.

Those struggling with addiction can benefit from learning certain life skills. It is not as simple as quitting drinking or taking drugs and thinking that the hard part is over. Being sober means living a whole new way of life. Many recovering addicts have found that they need to develop talents like time management, organization, communication skills, socialization skills, and self-esteem to make their life in sobriety work, First Step Recovery Homes is here to help with that.

Nutrition therapy has been used to help drug addicts for decades. Many early reports on addiction treatment indicate that some patients recovered from the “satisfying power of food”. For years, this phenomenon has been utilized as a treatment modality in eating disorders for adults, adolescents, and children. Specific nutrients have been identified that influence neurotransmitters associated with reward pathways of the brain.

Studies have shown that carbohydrate loading with complex carbohydrates to elevate serotonin levels was effective in treating bulimia nervosa. This approach prompted researchers to explore the use of this type of nutritional intervention in other disorders.

Nicotine replacement therapy is a drug treatment that allows people to get the effects of nicotine without chewing or smoking. The therapy is often done with a patch, and doses of nicotine are reduced until nicotine is no longer needed. NRT helps smokers get nicotine into their system without resorting to smoking, and it has been shown to be an effective way to help people quit smoking. Coupling NRT with counseling and other means of support gives long-term smokers a better chance of removing their unhealthy habit.
