Treatment for Opioid Abuse

Two people talking about opioid addiction treatment servicesOpioids are powerful pain relievers that doctors prescribe to patients after surgery or a major accident or to treat chronic pain. They are a synthetic version of natural opiates and are the active ingredient in Imodium, Vicodin, Oxycontin, Percocet, Demeral, and other brand-name opioid-based pain relievers. While they are safe to take when following the prescription, they come with a high rate of abuse, which can lead to a serious addiction.

Treatment for opioid abuse involves a combination of behavioral and holistic therapies along with medication to minimize withdrawals and cravings during detox. This mix of therapies provides a more thorough recovery experience and addresses the physical and mental aspects of the disorder. An average opioid addiction treatment program can include:

  • Cognitive-behavioral therapy

Opioid Addiction Treatment Services

Here is a breakdown of the opioid addiction treatment services that you will find at an addiction treatment facility:

Behavioral Therapy

One of the best forms of therapy for opioid addiction treatment is cognitive-behavioral therapy. It focuses on the negative behaviors and triggers associated with opioid abuse and helps clients develop new behaviors and positive thinking that promote long-lasting sobriety. Other types of behavioral therapy that can support the recovery process include:

  • Dialectical behavior therapy
  • Acceptance and commitment therapy
  • Motivational interviewing
  • Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing

Holistic Therapies

A successful recovery requires making several lifestyle changes to stay physically and mentally healthy. Addiction treatment programs often include cooking classes, exercise programs, and animal-assisted therapy to help clients rebuild their lives and reach their goals. Other holistic programs that can support a healthy recovery include meditation, yoga, journaling, reflexology, acupuncture, and gardening.

Medication Management

It’s common for all people to experience withdrawal symptoms and intense cravings when they stop taking opioids. Medication can safely reduce withdrawals and cravings. Then, clients can focus on recovering and have an easier time reaching their sober goals. Medical staff will administer specific dosages to each client and monitor them for any adverse reactions. Throughout the program, they will make adjustments to the medication as their symptoms change.

By the end of the program, the majority of people will no longer need to continue the medication. Instead, they will begin tapering off to avoid any withdrawals.

Aftercare Support

After completing an opioid treatment program, clients can continue to receive peer support through alumni programs. This program provides continuing support for individuals as they get used to living sober lives and can be there during those difficult times when cravings reappear.
