Conditions and Issues Treated

Opioid addiction treatment should be done in a medically supervised drug rehab. While taking opioids, users will typically use other substances to enhance the effects of opioids or to reduce the adverse effects of opioid use. Opioid addiction treatment will include detoxification and drug rehab counseling to help both the user and their loved ones learn how to live a successful sober lifestyle.

Treatments such as methadone, buprenorphine, and naltrexone are three medications that can help treat opioid addiction. These drugs work on the brain’s pleasure center and reduce cravings and the effects of illicit opioids such as heroin. These drugs can be either given orally or by injection. Individual drug rehab counseling sessions can be helpful to discuss any questions or concerns with the drug treatment program. This counseling will also help the user set goals for when they finish drug rehab.

Opioid addiction recovery is a long process. Many of the changes to the brain caused by opioid use cannot be undone, but with time and the proper treatment, a person can return to normal function. After detox, treatment will include drug rehab counseling and entering a halfway house or sober living community. Aftercare is critical to long-term recovery, as it helps the user avoid relapsing and entering back into drug rehab.

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.

Therapies & Programs

No single treatment works for all addicts; therefore, the goal of treatment and therapy should be to find what works best for each individual.

Professionals must customize plans according to their patient’s needs, limitations, and strengths.

Drug addiction can destroy a person’s life, as well as their family and friends. The loss of one’s ability to choose how to live and behave often leads the addict into depression, anger, guilt, and many emotional problems.

The therapies usually include siblings, children, and parents who are involved in their daily lives. These sessions are vital because they address past issues that may have hampered an addict’s or alcoholic’s recovery and provide support at a crucial time!

This type of therapy involves the use of a variety of therapeutic techniques to help addicts recover from past traumas that might have triggered their substance abuse. During these sessions, therapists will work with the addict to address painful memories and learn how to cope effectively with stressors as they arise.

During these types of sessions, therapists will typically focus on three main goals:

  1. Identifying and expressing painful emotions associated with past traumas.
  2. Reducing the effects of stress on an addict’s life by developing more effective coping mechanisms.
  3. Developing healthy ways of thinking about stressful situations that can help addicts avoid substance abuse issues in the future.

This type of therapy is typically used in conjunction with other types of addiction treatment services. By identifying and dealing with the root cause of addiction, most addicts can overcome their cravings and prevent relapse once they leave rehab.
