Conditions and Issues Treated

Opioid + Opiate Addiction Treatment in Des Moines, IA

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.

Levels of Care

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

Inpatient treatment centers offer a safe, secure, and often medically supervised environment for drug or alcohol-addicted individuals. Many of these facilities are equipped to provide detoxification, treatment for co-occurring mental health disorders, and aftercare programs.

The patient typically spends 28 to 30 days at the facility and will receive extensive drug counseling. They will also learn how to live without drugs and how to make the right decisions in life.

Sober living homes are halfway houses where people stay for a certain amount of time with the opportunity to stabilize themselves when they’re in recovery. Residents must follow the rules like no drinking and using drugs, paying rent/bills, etc. There is no minimum or maximum period of stay; as long you abide by these simple guidelines, then it’s an excellent chance to move forward into sobriety!

For many, this is a fresh start, a time to reset the calendar. Some have lost everything due to addiction, so being in sober living allows them to try again or begin for the first time by establishing new routines and healthy habits that will result in long-term sobriety. It’s also common for people to move from one sober living home to another. Each move gets them closer and closer to their final destination of a drug & alcohol-free life.

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.

Recovering drug addicts need aftercare support when they leave treatment. The support can include guidance through 12-step programs, outpatient rehabilitation programs, and support groups. Aftercare supports the individual in their desire to maintain sobriety by reducing relapse risk with positive choices.

The success of drug treatment does not end when the addict leaves the rehabilitation center. There is no such thing as a “one and done” type of rehabilitation process. Recovery is a lifelong journey that begins with treatment and continues by the addict committing to outside support groups or drug rehab programs.

When choosing a program, it is crucial to choose one that will provide long-term aftercare support. This ensures that you have the tools you need to sustain your recovery.

Therapies & Programs

Individualized Treatment is essential because it gives addicts the ability to participate in a program that meets their unique needs. An addict should work with professionals who understand what they’re going through, especially if the addict is actively using. Finding the right treatment program for an addict is difficult, but it’s even harder without communicating with those who have experience treating your specific situation.

Couples therapy is a treatment approach where the patients and their partners are engaged together. When a person becomes a victim of substance abuse, it affects the patient and his people, particularly his partner. Their relationship can become strained due to lack of communication, financial issues, loss of trust, lack of intimacy, and physical abuse in more severe cases. Couples therapy addresses these issues and tries to rebuild the trust between the partners. The partner’s involvement in the process will result in greater chances of treatment success and sustained recovery.

The therapies typically involve all family members, potentially including siblings, children, and parents who play a role in their daily lives. These sessions can be essential because they address past issues that may have affected an addict or alcoholic’s recovery process. They provide support during this time when it is needed most!

A family therapy session, often called a family meeting or intervention, is a necessary process that helps loved ones of addicts see their situation in a new light. It’s also one of the most challenging things families will ever have to do when they’re facing a loved one battling addiction or alcoholism.

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.

Life skills training is beneficial for addicts in recovery because it helps them learn how to take care of themselves and improve their quality of life, which can promote feelings of purpose and motivation.

This works by teaching individuals life-enhancing skills that support positive living, including:

  • Healthy lifestyle habits
  • Skills to effectively manage stress
  • Effective communication skills to help them get their needs met without turning to drugs or alcohol
  • Money management and budgeting skills so they can continue to take care of themselves after treatment ends.
