Conditions and Issues Treated

Opioid + Opiate Addiction Treatment in Jefferson City, MO

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.

Levels of Care

This center offers a variety of custom treatment tailored to individual recovery. Currently available are Aftercare Support, Drug Rehab, Inpatient, Residential, with additional therapies available as listed below.

Inpatient recovery offers individual therapy, groups, and family therapy. The length of inpatient addiction treatment depends on the addict and their addiction. Inpatient rehab is a costly drug treatment, costing anywhere from $30k- to $60k. However, insurance often offers help in covering these costs.

Residential treatment programs are those that offer housing and meals in addition to substance abuse treatment. Rehab facilities that offer residential treatment allow patients to focus solely on recovery, in an environment totally separate from their lives. Some rehab centers specialize in short-term residential treatment (a few days to a week or two), while others solely provide treatment on a long-term basis (several weeks to months). Some offer both, and tailor treatment to the patient’s individual requirements.

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 Missouri Department of Social Services - Division of Youth Services.

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, Missouri Department of Social Services - Division of Youth Services is here to help with that.

    Jefferson City, Missouri Addiction and Treatment

    Opioid-related overdoses in Missouri have been increasing steadily for the past three decades. In 2018, more than 1,130 people in Missouri died from opioid abuse. Methamphetamines and marijuana abuse have surpassed opioid abuse in Missouri. Missouri is the number 1 methamphetamine manufacturer in the country with more than 27 meth labs per 100,000 people.

    Jefferson City, the vibrant capital of Missouri, offers a rich history and engaging activities for its residents. With a supportive community and peaceful environment, it's an ideal place for drug rehab and recovery. However, the city faces challenges with opioid overdoses, as fentanyl was involved in 59% of opioid-related deaths in Missouri in 2020, and Cole County had a high age-standardized mortality rate for liver diseases in 2014.
