    Opiod Addiction, Substance Abuse


    Substance Abuse + Addiction

    Rehab centers exist in Milwaukee, WI to help individuals bounce back from substance abuse, which is an umbrella term for drug and alcohol addiction. Drug addiction refers to the use of illegal drugs and improper use of prescription drugs. Centers like United Community Center Latinas Unidas provide individuals a chance to access individual and group therapy that can be monumental for recovery.

    Substance abuse includes all problems that stem out from using various psychoactive substances. It is also a diagnostic term used by Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-IV) to define the mental and physical impairment or distress caused by misuse and overuse of certain substances in a period of 12 months.

    Opioid + Opiate Addiction

    Opioid addiction involves addiction to legal or illegal opioids. It may happen very quickly with any opioid use. Sometimes within a matter of days. Opioid addiction is a known as a high-risk factor for future heroin addiction.

    Opioid withdrawal can be extremely uncomfortable and lead the user to continue to use even if they want to quit. Stopping using an opioid requires careful medical observation. Sometimes the withdrawal can persist for many weeks, which can put the user at a high risk for relapse.

    It is recommended to receive inpatient treatment and a medically supervised detox like those offered at United Community Center Latinas Unidas in Milwaukee, WI, WI, to manage the withdrawal process while learning lasting tools to maintain recovery. In some circumstances medications can be used to manage opioid addiction.


    Levels of Care Offered

    This center offers a variety of custom treatment tailored to individual recovery. Currently available are Aftercare Support, Drug Rehab, Dual-Diagnosis, Intensive Outpatient, Long Term (>30 Days), Outpatient, Partial-Hospitalization, Residential, Short Term (<30 Days), with additional therapies available as listed below.

    Drug Rehabilitation

    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.

    Intensive Outpatient (IOP)

    Intensive outpatient programs mostly conduct meetings on weekdays. Group therapy is the main element in most intensive outpatient programs. Most IOPs last for about 90 days and include drug use monitoring and testing. A Wisconsin IOP, like what’s offerd at United Community Center Latinas Unidas, take much more time than a standard outpatient program. Some programs offer other services as well, such as employment assistance and medication management.

    Aftercare Support

    After treatment, addiction treatment can be frightening for newly sober people. Aftercare support provided by United Community Center Latinas Unidas is designed to give resources and help on a continued basis.

    Dual-Diagnosis

    People with dual diagnosis have coexisting addiction and a mental disorder. 9.2 million US adults had a co-occurring disorder in 2018, so not just limited to Wisconsin residents. Best treatment combines medication, psychotherapy (talk therapy), support group, and inpatient rehabilitation. Sometimes, complementary therapies – yoga, massage, and acupuncture – may also be used.

    Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)
