Pain killers treatment is just like any other addictions treatment in that it must address both your mental and physical addiction in order to be successful. Many rehab centers offer detox as their main treatment and maybe some type of outpatient counseling. However, unless you enroll in a pain killers treatment that addresses every aspect of your addiction, including the reasons why you became addicted in the first place, you will more than likely relapse. Pain killers treatment programs must be able to understand that you are more than an addict and, moreover, that your addiction goes deeper than a physical dependency.

We understand what it takes to get you to sobriety at The Watershed. Therefore, we offer a variety of programs, which are derived from eastern and western medicine, to help create an individualized pain killers treatment program for you. However, as anyone will tell you, the first step to sobriety starts with you seeing that you do have an addiction to pain killers and wanting to be sober again. It starts with you calling The Watershed at 1-800-861-1768 and accepting the help we are so willingly offering you. You can win victory over your pain killers when you are willing to take that first step.

Courage Means Pain Killers Treatment

As strange at it may sound, there is complete truth in the statement “courage means pain killers treatment.” Believe it or not, it takes more courage to seek help for your addiction then it does trying to overcome it on your own. This is because you have to admit that you are no longer in control of your life, but rather your pain killers are. It is also because that you have to admit that you abused your pain killers, which led to your addiction, and then your pain killers treatment.

Courage also means pain killers treatment because of what you will face in treatment. This isn’t to say that your rehabilitation process will be horrible, because in centers like The Watershed, you will have the same ammenities, if not more than what you are used to at home. However, it does mean that you will go through detox and come to terms with the reasons your addiction started and how it has affected everything around you. Moreover, courage means pain killers treatment because you are learning to cope with life without your drugs while facing those who loved you. Your courage can begin with calling The Watershed at 1-800-861-1768 and enrolling in the pain killers treatment program being offered to you.

Courage Leads To Treatment and Understanding

As stated above, your courage will lead you to your pain killers treatment. This understanding refers to knowing how and when your addiction started. It means learning to cope with life without your pain killers. Moreover, it means understanding that there is a hope of healing for you at The Watershed. We believe that knowledge gives you the power to overcome your addiction to pain killers and understanding the different aspects of your addiction and pain killers treatment is what will give you this power.

At The Watershed, we want to keep you informed in every part of your pain killers treatment because this is the only way that you can truly understand the purpose behind it. This understanding starts as you go through an intense medical assessment so we can decide what tools you will need to overcome your addiction and then by creating an individualized treatment plan around that information. During this individualized pain killers treatment plan, you will begin to explore the different areas of your addiction and then be given the tools to deal with those areas. If you need help understanding your pain killers addiction, you can call The Watershed at 1-800-861-1768.

Residential Drug Treatment Can End In Sobriety

Once you have learned to move past your fear and into your residential drug treatment, you can reach sobriety. However, as with anything, there is a catch. In order for sobriety to be an option for you, there are a few things you need to know. It does not matter if you are attending outpatient or residential drug treatment, you will have to work towards sobriety. Nothing as serious as addiction will be easy to overcome. Moreover, you will have to truly want sobriety. A residential drug treatment center only offers you a safe haven from drugs and the tools you need to reach sobriety. It is still entirely up to you to use the tools to change your habits and life. You have to face physical withdrawal. You have to face the emotional and mental pain of what your addiction has done in your life. You will have to learn how to live again. See the common denominator, you.

Understanding Means Mental and Physical Rehab

Understanding your pain killers treatment means knowing that it will take mental and physical rehabilitation for you to reach sobriety. First, you have to go through detox, which at The Watershed is medically supervised. Once your body became addicted to the pain killers, it changed. Your body thought it was normal that these drugs were in your system and adjusted so it could function with them. Hence, when you are addicted you physically crave your drugs. It is essential that your body learns that it does not need the drugs to function and this is done through detox.

Aside from being physically dependent on the drugs, you begin to need them mentally. This means that you can crave the drug in your mind just as much as your body did. Moreover, you may feel you need the drugs to function throughout the day. This is why you need psychotherapy in your pain killers treatment, to teach your mind that you do not need the drugs. Psychotherapy is also important because you may have other mental disorders along with your addiction (depression, anger, poor self esteem, etc) that need to be treated. Plus, you need to realize that your actions have affected the people around you.
