Opioid Addiction Treatment

Opioid Addiction Treatment

The need for comprehensive and effective opioid addiction treatment in the United States has never been more urgent. With over 63,000 Americans dying from drug overdose in 2016 and a 30 percent increase in fatal overdoses from July 2016 to September 2017, opioid addiction has become a leading public health issue and one of the most common causes of preventable death in the country. These drugs, which include both illicit substances and legally prescribed medications, are impacting every portion of the American landscape, from the affluent suburbs to urban populations. Recovery Unplugged offers compassionate, effective and music-based opioid addiction treatment in Florida and at other locations around the country. Call us today at (855) 784-3577.

Components of Effective Opioid Addiction Treatment

Treatment for opioid addiction must be customized according to each patient’s individual care needs and substance use history. This includes rehab that addresses the root causes of their addictions as well as aftercare plans that are applicable to their specific post-treatment lifestyle and family situations. Effective opioid addiction treatment must also address the physical fallout from these drugs, including withdrawal symptoms and long-term conditions that have developed as a result of prolonged and untreated use. Many who are suffering from opioid addiction often have co-occurring mental health issues, like anxiety and depression, that also require treatment to effectively address the substance abuse issue.

Opioid Withdrawal Symptoms

One of the most common impediments to effective opioid addiction treatment is the physical and psychological withdrawal period. Opioids very quickly create serious and damaging changes to the brain’s chemistry and central nervous system, causing the body to crave them beyond rational thought or understanding. The opioid withdrawal period is generally broken up into three stages (early, acute and protracted) and can often include symptoms such as:

  • Flu-Like Symptoms
  • Gastrointestinal Issues
  • Severe Muscle and Joint Pain
  • Extreme Weight Loss
  • Headache
  • Hallucinations
  • Fluctuations in Body Temperature
  • Excessive Sweating
  • Seizure and Coma
  • Abdominal Cramping

These symptoms must be treated by an experienced and qualified physician who is trained in opioid addiction treatment.

Advantages of Medically Supervised Detox

Advantages of Medically Supervised Detox

Medical detox is a fundamental element of effective opioid addiction treatment. Opioid users who have developed even mild dependency and attempt to detox on their own generally find the withdrawal period to be too arduous, and they subsequently relapse. Medically supervised detox provides patients with the benefit of expert withdrawal management to make them as comfortable as possible, as well as a physician to intervene in the event of a medical emergency. Recovery Unplugged is one of the few addiction treatment centers in Lake Worth that offers medical detox on premises. Other facilities fragment care and force patients to travel to different locations for this critical part of the opioid addiction treatment process.

Rehab and Behavior Modification

It’s not enough for patients to detox from opioid addiction without comprehensive rehab and psychological counseling. A customized course of behavioral care will help patients confront the origins of their substance abuse while developing coping mechanisms to avoid relapse in high-pressure situations. Rehab should include individualized counseling, group dynamics and supplemental therapies to help patients safely and effectively address and manage their substance use triggers. Aftercare plans should include ongoing support resources, including contact information for addiction-trained mental health professionals in their area. These resources are vital to patients’ ongoing success in post-treatment recovery and can make the difference between relapse and lasting sobriety.
