Opioid + Opiate Addiction Treatment in Kissimmee, FL
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.
When addiction and psychiatric issues co-occur, the addict’s recovery is more successful when both conditions are treated. A dual diagnosis refers to a condition in which the patient is diagnosed with two health issues: addiction and bipolar disorder. The most common therapies are psychotherapy, behavioral therapy, spiritual counseling, 12-step programs, and medication management.

Interventionism is a technique used to help an addict get clean and sober. The process begins with the addict’s family, friends, and co-workers gathering together to confront the addict about their addiction.

Most addicts come to understand that their loved ones are only trying to help them.
Aftercare support is vital to the success of someone in drug or alcohol treatment.
