    Conditions and Issues Treated

    Opioid addiction treatment should be done in a medically supervised drug rehab. 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. Methadone, buprenorphine, and naltrexone are three medications that can help treat opioid addiction. Individual drug rehab counseling sessions can be helpful to discuss any questions or concerns with the drug treatment program.

    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.

    Usually, dual diagnosis sufferers are prescribed a combination of treatments for each condition. The most common therapies are psychotherapy, behavioral therapy, spiritual counseling, 12-step programs, and medication management.

    Psychiatric conditions are an obstacle to recovery because they can create roadblocks to a healthy lifestyle. Drugs and alcohol may be used as a means of self-medication, which can have dangerous consequences. Over time, addicts build up a tolerance and suffer withdrawal symptoms when drug use is stopped.

    With the proper treatment, dual diagnosis sufferers can overcome their conditions and achieve lasting sobriety.
