Opiate addiction treatment is something that few non-addicted people have heard of but it is something that many addicted people go through. The reality is that opiate addiction will require rehabilitation at an opiate addiction treatment center because opiate addiction results in physical and psychological dependence.
Often times, people just consider either heroin treatment or prescription drug treatment, but there are all types of opiate drugs that can be addicting. What many people may not realize is that many “legal” prescription drugs are derived from opiates. These drugs include morphine, oxycodone, hydrocodone, and even methadone. Heroin, which is illegal, is also derived from opiates.
Dealing with an addiction to any of these types of drugs can be devastating, but a reputable opiate addiction treatment center can help by providing a safe, structured environment for detox and inpatient care. Because opiate addiction results in physical dependency, the detoxification process is critical. First, opiate addicts are weaned off substances and then they can begin to work on learning how to stay sober.
Although many people are prescribed these drugs as pain relievers, the reality is that they have an extremely high risk for addiction. Opiate addiction can happen after one use or prolonged use. It can be extremely difficult to break an addiction to opiates on your own, which is why effective opiate addiction treatment is critical.
We, The Watershed Addiction Treatment Programs, understand the intimidation factor of opiate treatment for you. We understand that you may be unsure about seeking help for your opioid addiction at any inpatient drug rehabilitation center. However, we will offer you a mixture of modern and traditional therapies in a comfortable and private opiate treatment center.
If you are addicted to opiates, there’s no better time to ask for help than now. Pick up the phone and call to learn more about our private opiate rehab program at The Watershed at 1-800-861-1768. We only want to help you understand what is happening to you and give you the tools to heal from opiate addiction.
Opiate addiction may not have a cure, but with effective treatment for opiate addiction, you can learn how to live a completely new life in sobriety. Another great aspect about opiate treatment is that you will begin to understand your addiction.
Unlike other drug and alcohol addictions, an opiate addiction may be a little less clear. This means that it may be unclear when you became addicted. You may even wonder if being addicted means that you can’t take your painkiller medications anymore or if you should avoid other substances like alcohol as well. All of these types of issues can be properly addressed through individual counseling and group therapy, both of which are offered at the best drug rehab programs for opiate addiction.
During your opiate treatment, you will explore these areas and begin to understand what you need to do to overcome your opiate addiction. You will be advised about triggers, drug cravings, and healthier coping mechanisms.
Through your opiate addiction treatment, you will learn about a few basic ways your addiction started. You may have been prescribed a high dose prescription therapy, which led you to became addicted. Or, you may have some type of chronic pain and have been taking these types of prescriptions for a long period of time. You might have also started abusing either prescription opiates (pain killers) or heroin. The way you may have become addicted to these opiates could impact the way you are treated, so it’s worth discussing with your therapist and/or addiction professionals.
Opiate addiction can be confusing, especially to those who may have become addicted as a result of taking their prescribed pain medication. There is always an issue of if you truly need something for pain management, or if it’s not as necessary as you were once told.
Moreover, there is the issue of teaching your body and mind to differentiate between real and psychological pain. This is why you need opiate treatment if you have an addiction. Learning to do these things and finding alternative pain management methods is something that you cannot do on your own. In fact, without opiate treatment, you probably would not even make it through detox. Going through opiate withdrawals can be painful, but a detoxification center can help as your discomfort as much as possible.
At The Watershed, we understand the unique issues associated with opiate treatment. This is why the first thing that you will do when you arrive for our opiate treatment program is go through an intensive assessment. This will help us (and you) determine what the best plan of action is for you. Every part of your opiate treatment is meant to heal a different aspect of your addiction while promoting your overall well being. In order to get the help you need, you must first call The Watershed at 1-800-861-1768.
In almost any opiate rehab center your opiate treatment will begin with detox. At The Watershed, you will start with an intensive medical assessment and then enter into detox. You cannot hope to overcome your addiction or fight your mental and emotional addiction if your body is still physically dependent on the opiates.
With that being said, a detox alone will not “fix” your addiction. There is no cure for addiction, but treatment can and does work. A detox can be an important part of that treatment process because it is the phase of treatment where you are weaned off all substances.
Some people will opt for a rapid detox program but, if you do not treat the emotional and mental addiction to the opiates, you cannot reach sobriety either. We, The Watershed, feel it is important to emphasize this fact so that you do not enter in the opiate treatment program we are offering you with false expectations.
Your opiate treatment will truly start with your detox here, but it is not successful if we do not follow through with intensive counseling and therapy sessions after your detox. The inpatient treatment and aftercare portions are just as important as the detoxification phase.
The first thing that we need to say is that your treatment cannot begin until you pick up the phone and call The Watershed at 1-800-861-1768. Unless you are willing to help yourself, it really does not matter what we can offer you because we cannot help you if you are not here or willing to receive the help you desperately need to recover from opiate addiction.
