Opioid + Opiate Addiction Treatment in Hartford, CT
Within the past decade, opioid addiction has become a nationwide epidemic. The United States hosts one of the world’s highest rates of opioid use or abuse and has one of the highest rates of opioid-related deaths. In the United States, opioid drugs are classified as Schedule II-IV controlled substances due to their highly addictive properties and potential for abuse. These include morphine, opium, heroin, oxycodone, hydrocodone, methadone, and fentanyl. Physicians usually prescribe opioids to help control pain.
Over time, opioid users develop a tolerance for the drugs, which makes it difficult, if not impossible, to function without them. In turn, opioid users often resort to illicit means of obtaining the drugs. These means can include drug dealers, friends, and family members who do not have legitimate prescriptions for the drugs. Opioid addiction can quickly lead to heroin use, especially those seeking more intense highs than prescription opioids offer. Due to the high risk of overdose, heroin users are at a much higher risk for illness and death.
A person who struggles with addiction and a mental health condition suffers from a dual diagnosis. This means that they have two issues that must be treated. The specific mental health issues that the patient at Hartford Dispensary - Henderson - Johnson might have include but are not limited to:

Detoxification is a critical first step in treatment for drug addiction. Drug detoxification helps the individual withdraw from the drug by providing a controlled environment where symptoms can be managed through medication and close observation. Detoxification is an inflection point where the individual can get on a recovery track, but it’s also one of the most dangerous points in the recovery process.
In addition to going through physical withdrawal from certain drugs, a detox program also provides the individual with drug testing to monitor their progress. This way, if the individual is not ready for sobriety (such as if they relapse), the treatment professionals can catch it early on and use that opportunity to help re-orient the individual towards recovery.
Hartford, CT Outpatient Program
An outpatient treatment program is set up to help with alcohol or drug addiction or a co-occurring disorder. The treatment must attend the treatment facility for their therapy and other programs but return home each night. The frequency of mandatory attendance decreases after much of the treatment program is complete. The treatment programs are monitored by the treatment facility and case managers who work for a judge or judge’s office. A treatment program may be performed out of a treatment facility, treatment clinic, or treatment center.
The benefits of outpatient treatment programs are many. One of the most beneficial treatment programs is that it allows treatment for clients who cannot afford or may not be able to attend treatment at a treatment facility, treatment center, or treatment clinic full-time. Another benefit of treatment programs is that they reduce crime rates because treatment allows people to treat their addiction.
Therapies & Programs
The methods used to care for each individual.
Group therapy sessions provide recovering addicts with a chance to cope with everyday situations that many face. Group therapy sessions are held in rehab facilities, clinics, churches or community centers that offer drug addiction treatment.
People who attend these groups are encouraged to voice their feelings and support other addicts in recovery. This helps group members strengthen their own recovery program while cheering on others who are struggling with sobriety.
Trauma therapy allows them to work through past trauma to have peace of mind and begin down the road of sobriety. The therapist will work with the individual to help them understand their past and present relationships. Patients may often believe that something is inherently wrong with them or they are unworthy of love. The therapist aims to correct these negative feelings and behaviors by helping the person realize that their actions do not reflect who they truly are.
