Substance Abuse + Addiction Treatment at Glens Falls Hospital Alcohol Outpatient

Opioid + Opiate Addiction Treatment in Glens Falls, NY

Opioid abuse has become a national epidemic in the last decade. The US has one of the world’s highest rates of opioid use and abuse, as well as opioid-related deaths. Opioids are classified as Schedule II-IV controlled substances in the US due to their high potential for abuse.

Oxycodone, hydrocodone, methadone, and fentanyl are the most common Opioids and are commonly prescribed to treat pain. Tolerance to opioids develops over time, making life difficult, if not impossible, without them. Opioid users often obtain the drugs illegally. They can be drug dealers, friends, or family members who do not have valid prescriptions.

The desire for a more intense high than prescription opioids can quickly lead to heroin use. Heroin users are more prone to illness and death due to the high risk of overdose.

Many opioid addicts who seek treatment believe that the only way to overcome their addiction is through medical detox and long-term drug addiction rehab. To help patients wean off their addiction and reduce the risk of overdose, medication-assisted therapy (MAT) involves prescribing a replacement opioid. Doctors use MAT in conjunction with other anti-craving medications to help patients maintain recovery. Due to the high risk of relapse, MAT is often combined with individual and group counseling and social support programs.

Levels of Care

This center offers a variety of custom treatment tailored to individual recovery. Currently available are Detox, Outpatient, with additional therapies available as listed below.

The detoxification process typically includes some combination of the following: medical supervision, medication to help alleviate withdrawal symptoms, drug testing to monitor progress, and counseling.

Tackling the physical symptoms of withdrawal is essential to ensure that an individual can focus on the psychological aspects of the addiction without focusing on the physical pain that comes with withdrawal.

Withdrawal symptoms can be uncomfortable, even life-threatening, so carefully managing the detox process is extremely important. In many cases, more advanced pharmaceutical interventions are used to treat more severe withdrawal symptoms. Medication might help alleviate discomfort associated with detox, including nausea and headaches.

Outpatient treatment is an option for people who want to maintain their careers and families. Outpatients live at home but attend treatment such as individual counseling, group counseling, or twelve-step meetings during the day.

Therapies & Programs

In group therapy, recovering addicts meet with a therapist and other people in recovery. Some groups are closed, meaning only people who share the same addiction or problem can attend. Others are open to anyone who wants to stop using drugs or drinking alcohol. Group therapy sessions typically focus on one topic each week or month so that recovering addicts can discuss issues they face daily.
