Opioid + Opiate Addiction Treatment in Minneapolis, MN

With so many people addicted to opioids, we need to help those who want to quit. The cycle begins when opioid addicts take opioids for a painful injury. When someone starts taking their medication differently or in excess, it means they’re addicted and at risk of overdosing.

In , detoxing from these types of treatments is the most effective way to beat this. Most facilities begin with medical assistance and then provide counseling services; rehabilitation follows after successful treatment.

Levels of Care

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

Detox is an integral part of recovery and often very hard. Detoxification is the process of letting the body remove the drugs in it. It addresses the physical aspect of addiction. Detox from drugs can be unsafe as the patient undergoes withdrawal symptoms that range from headaches, vomiting, body aches to seizures and cardiac arrests. The main purpose of detox is to keep the drug users comfortable as the drugs leave their system.

Quitting cold turkey is not recommended and can lead to many issues. Detox is best done under medical supervision so that a team of experts can monitor the side effects and complications. Detox, alone, does not guarantee sobriety as the underlying psychological issues are not addressed.

An intensive outpatient program (IOP) is effective for drug rehab, but it can take six months to several years to complete. It’s the most popular type of drug rehab program in the United States. One example of a successful IOP success story is actor and comedian Chris Rock, sober since 1990.

An IOP allows participants to spend nights at home while attending meetings throughout the day. It’s a good way for drug addicts to make a recovery plan in an outpatient setting while still supporting their loved ones.

Alcohol or drug addiction, or co-occurring disorders, are treated in an outpatient program. The patient must attend therapy and other programs at the facility but can return home each night.

Outpatient treatment allows recovering addicts to live at home while receiving addiction treatment. Outpatients can attend group sessions for a few hours per week. Outpatients may also continue to work full time and study/attend school without interruption if they choose.

Therapies & Programs

Attending group therapy at Minnesota Alternative in , is a useful way for those seeking sobriety to realize they aren’t the only one going through it.

This is when a group of people on different recovery phases get together and talk about what they’re going through, their triggers, successes, and failures. This can include alternative types of therapies too! Group therapy may occur on an outpatient or inpatient basis with groups that have no pre-existing relationships outside the session, unlike support groups where everyone already knows each other beforehand.
