    Conditions and Issues Treated

    Opioid addiction treatment facilities like Valley Health Associates support people struggling with opioid dependency, which covers illegal and prescription opioids. People often abuse prescription opioids to get high instead of adhering to a medical provider’s directions. Addiction forces people to crave for opioids impulsively without factoring in the dangers these drugs bring to them.

    Most opioid addiction treatment plans include detoxification and subsequent medications to ease the process. However, that’s only the beginning. Behavioral therapies and counseling are also necessary to resolve the root cause of addiction. This overall approach decreases the likelihood of falling off the wagon. In some instances, therapies can be done at home.

    Levels of Care Offered

    This center offers a variety of custom treatment tailored to individual recovery. Currently available are Aftercare Support, Detox, Outpatient, with additional therapies available as listed below.

    Detox is the stage of recovery where the drugs or alcohol are fully removed from your body. As you stop using, your body metabolizes the last dose or drink and starts sending triggers to your brain to get more. These cues lead to cravings. If additional substances are not obtained you begin to go through withdrawal. Your body begins to reset chemical pathways and other metabolic processes begin which can be extremely uncomfortable.

    There are two different ways to detox, with medications and without. Depending on your level of addiction and what you are using, you may need medical supervision. For many drugs and alcohol, the acute phase of detox can be completed in a number of days. Cravings and certain longer-term withdrawal symptoms may remain for longer as your body completely rids itself of the drug and relearns how to function without it.

    Outpatient treatment plans cover diagnosis, detoxification, management, and counseling. They are a popular option for those who have graduated from inpatient facilities. Services in California include medication-assisted treatment (MAT) and individual and group therapy.
