Conditions and Issues Treated
A detailed list of the primary issues commonly treated.
Getting sober on your own is not only dangerous during the initial detox, it is also more likely to result in a relapse later on. Addiction treatment centers provide a monitored environment where you will get the medical attention you need, as well as the emotional support to overcome drug or alcohol abuse.
Opioid + Opiate Addiction Treatment in Norwalk, CT
Opioid addiction is when someone becomes addicted to opioids. This can happen quickly due to any opioid use. Opioid withdrawal can be uncomfortable and lead the user to continue using even if they want to quit. It’s best to receive inpatient treatment for detoxification.
Even if a person doesn’t need inpatient treatment, it’s recommended to start rehabilitation or at least some kind of outpatient treatment. This is because the withdrawal symptoms from opioids can be uncomfortable and unpleasant, to the point that a person could end up using again or worse.
Detoxification should be done to break the physical addiction of opioids. This can be done with opioid replacement therapy, medication-assisted therapy, or a more traditional detoxification program. Intensive outpatient treatment is a form of addiction care that allows patients to continue living at home while undergoing treatment. This type of care is appropriate for patients who have been treated in residential treatment programs. Intensive outpatient programs include regular visits to the facility providing therapy, and patients gradually return to their routine life. IOP benefits most when patients have a supportive family member or friend to help them recover.
The first step to getting into an intensive outpatient program is to attend a detoxification facility. Detoxification facilities are designed to remove substances from the body safely. The patient will attend sessions designed to help them understand their addiction and its impact on their lives. While in an intensive outpatient program, therapy sessions are scheduled three to five times per week, with the patient attending no more than two sessions in one day.

Dual Diagnosis therapy is considered more successful than traditional rehab methods because it treats the addiction and the underlying mental health disorder simultaneously.

Detox is the process by which toxins are removed from the body. In substance abuse, detox refers to the process of getting rid of the drugs that are already there in the system once the patient stops its further intake. Detox is the initial step in the recovery process. The physiological dependence on the drug over a period can lead to withdrawal symptoms.
Depending on the severity of the symptoms, the detox process is managed either medically or clinically. While Medically assisted detox relies on the usage of specific medicines, clinal or social detox relies on providing emotional and psychological support to the patient.
Intensive Outpatient (IOP)
An intensive outpatient treatment program, or IOP, is set up for those struggling with an addiction to begin the recovery process. However, the patient will not live at the facility during treatment.
IOP involves patients coming in and out of a medical office building regularly to receive therapy and other services while continuing their life outside of these visits.
IOP is a step up from drug detoxification or alcohol detox. However, it’s still considered a phase of recovery rather than the ultimate goal. There are many rehabs and treatment facilities available to patients in need of IOP.
Outpatient treatment consists of counseling and therapy sessions. The outpatient treatment process begins with the addict’s initial detox period, lasting about ten days. Outpatient treatment is used for those who are at moderate risk for “slipping back” into the addiction. It is also used for those who are not currently experiencing any side effects from withdrawal, can handle social pressure, have a stable living environment, and have a good support system.
