    Opioid + Opiate Addiction Treatment in Saint Petersburg, FL

    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.

    This center offers a variety of custom treatment tailored to individual recovery. Currently available are Aftercare Support, Detox, Drug Rehab, Dual-Diagnosis, Inpatient, Intensive Outpatient, Intervention, Outpatient, Residential, with additional therapies available as listed below.

    Drug Detox

    An addict may have to go through alcohol or drug withdrawal. While detox may be uncomfortable, it is not life-threatening. Detoxification allows the addict to rid the body of all traces of drugs or alcohol and gives the addict a clean slate for their recovery. In an inpatient or outpatient setting, detox can be managed medically.

    Inpatient Treatment Program

    Inpatient treatment for alcoholism or drug addiction is an option that provides the addict with a supportive environment in which they can stop using. This type of treatment is appropriate for addicts that are most in need of intensive care and supervision. This includes those who were unable to quit on their own, those who need more structure than they can get in outpatient treatment.

    Intensive Outpatient (IOP)

    Intensive outpatient treatment is a type of comprehensive addiction care. Unlike conventional residential treatment programs, the patients live at home during the recovery process. This means that one can continue working and caring for their families. These also allow people to keep pursuing their studies while also working on their sobriety.

    Outpatient treatment can help one transition to normal life from the round-the-clock supervision and treatment available during inpatient treatment. It is an excellent tool to ensure long-term recovery. However, it is essential to note that intensive outpatient treatment in itself does not remove patients from the real-world setting. This means there’s always a higher risk of coming across environmental triggers. To further prevent relapse, an outpatient treatment center should be able to provide ongoing support services.

    Once the patient is enrolled in an intensive outpatient treatment program, they will be expected to attend therapy and group meetings daily for a stipulated period. The frequency and duration of each session will depend on the patient’s needs and level of addiction. This can help curb the habit and deal with underlying issues that led to it. Most of these professional treatments are designed to allow patients to structure their daily schedules in a way that is conducive to recovery.

    Outpatient Program

    “Outpatient treatment is ideal for those who have a lower intensity addiction. It’s also suitable for those with a supportive environment and those on a tight budget.

    Outpatient treatment can be considered the lowest intensity level of addiction treatment. It is ideal for early phase addiction or lower intensity addictions. It may involve weekly sessions instead of daily. Peer group support, 12-step programs, and individual counseling may still be used and anti-addiction medication.

    Residential treatment programs are those that offer housing and meals in addition to substance abuse treatment. Rehab facilities that offer residential treatment allow patients to focus solely on recovery, in an environment totally separate from their lives. Some rehab centers specialize in short-term residential treatment (a few days to a week or two), while others solely provide treatment on a long-term basis (several weeks to months). Some offer both, and tailor treatment to the patient’s individual requirements.

    Drug rehab intervention aims to make sure patients understand the risks of their addiction and possible outcomes. They must learn how their addiction affects those around them and allow a therapy session to help move past the physical symptoms. They often include psychotherapy or behavioral therapy, group therapy, family counseling, and peer support.

    Aftercare support is vital to those who have completed a drug or alcohol treatment program. This support comes in individual and family counseling, treatment of psychiatric and other medical conditions, and medications to reduce cravings. It helps recovering addicts adjust to normal day-to-day activities and can last for a year or longer.

    The majority of drug and alcohol addicts who receive aftercare treatment do not relapse. It is estimated that without aftercare, the relapse rate will be between 70 to 90 percent for most people. Aftercare is the final stage in addiction recovery, but it will also help maintain sobriety if relapse does occur.

    Therapies & Programs

    The methods used to care for each individual at this Saint Petersburg, FL Facility.

    Individual Therapy

    No single treatment works for all addicts; therefore, the goal of treatment and therapy should be to find what works best for each individual. Some people requiring addiction treatment may only need a few weeks of inpatient care. Others will require long-term residential care. Tolerance and withdrawal levels vary from person to person and thus affect the intensity of the treatment needed.

    If an individualized approach to treatment and therapy is not offered, addicts may fail to reap benefits from their efforts. Professionals must customize plans according to their patient’s needs, limitations, and strengths. The goal of all forms of addiction treatment should be for addicts to find healthy ways to cope with their addiction and its underlying causes.

    Family Counseling

    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!

    One of the most critical aspects of family therapy is helping addicts’ loved ones see their situation in a new light. It’s also one of the most challenging things a family can do when a loved one struggles with addiction or alcoholism.

    Group therapy is held in a safe, controlled setting where patients can feel comfortable sharing their struggles and gaining perspective through shared conversations. It takes place in a group rather than one on one to prevent feelings of isolation or being unique in their situation while creating an environment for addicts at West Care - Turning Point to develop fellowship, accountability, and support. Group therapy is an important tool in recovery that prevents cravings that prompt a return to active addiction.

    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.

    Many different types of addiction treatment services exist to help addicts safely get sober, but it’s important for recovering individuals to find a therapist or support group that will help them address the root cause of their addiction.

    Life skills training is beneficial for addicts in recovery because it helps them learn how to take care of themselves and improve their quality of life, which can promote feelings of purpose and motivation.

    This type of treatment works by teaching individuals life-enhancing skills that support positive living, including:

    • Healthy lifestyle habits
    • Skills to effectively manage stress
    • Effective communication skills to help them get their needs met without turning to drugs or alcohol
    • Money management and budgeting skills so they can continue to take care of themselves after treatment ends.
