When someone thinks of suboxone rehab, they might automatically think the worse because they do not understand the nature of suboxone. The general public may think that you are just another addict if you are going through suboxone rehab, but they are wrong. Suboxone is not just another street drug, nor is it a drug prescribed out to everyone. It is a drug to help people, just like you, through an opioid withdrawal. What you need to understand is if you are going through suboxone rehab, you have already battled something much more difficult. You have battled an opioid addiction.
What Suboxone Rehab Consists Of
In a sense, suboxone rehab is just like any other rehab, except for the detox period. During the detox period of suboxone rehab your opiate of choice (heroin, Oxycontin) is being replaced with suboxone. This is action is to minimize if not eliminate the withdrawal symptoms associated with opiate withdrawal. The detox period in suboxone rehab is also different in that once you have successfully switched over to suboxone, you will have a gradual detox. This means that your suboxone doses will be reduced gradually so as to eliminate any suboxone withdrawal symptoms.
With that said, suboxone rehab is just like any other rehab in that you will need mental healing for it to be successful. With out this mental healing, you will have only switched your addiction from one drug to the next. Without this mental healing, you are at a higher risk of relapsing into your old opiate habits. At The Watershed, we will offer you a controlled, medically supervised detox and any therapy you need afterward to address every aspect of your addiction. We understand that this is the only way that true sobriety can be reached. Please call The Watershed at 1-800-861-1768 to get the full healing that you deserve.
The Reason For Mental Treatment In Rehab
In order for your time at a suboxone rehab center to be successful, you will have to understand the reason that mental treatment is just as essential to your recovery as your detox is. Without understanding why it is important, how can you hope to benefit from it? You realize, by now, that the detox part of your suboxone rehab is when your physical body comes off the drug. However, detoxing does not begin to uncover the full scope of your addiction. Once your addiction set in, your mind also became dependent on your opiate. Even if your drug has been replaced with suboxone, you will need to address these mental issues to understand your addiction, how to avoid relapse, and a host of other issues. Moreover, in your mental treatments, you will heal from your mental cravings while seeing exactly how your addiction affected those around you.
At The Watershed, we understand the importance of healing your mind. This is why we offer a variety of therapies to address these different issues. You will be able to attend group meetings such as therapy, relapse prevention, etc. All this and more can be yours once you call The Watershed at 1-800-861-1768.
Suboxone Rehab Teaches You About Yourself
One thing you may not realize is that your suboxone rehab treatment will teach you about yourself. Effective treatment does not focus only on your addiction, but also on the underlying causes of your addiction and how it has affected your life. Healing begins when you are able to see yourself clearly, accept what you see, and then learn to fix those things that need fixing. Suboxone treatment also teaches you to be patient because recovery does not happen overnight. On the contrary, your suboxone rehab starts at a center, continues in out patient programs, and then continues further once you are at home again. This is why you need to be open and honest with yourself and learn to accept what you cannot change and change what you can.
Suboxone Rehab Leads You To Life

However, as you progressed through your treatment, you began to realize that there was life outside of your drugs. There was a much healthier life to be lived. Essentially, your suboxone rehab will lead you to a new life. However, it is completely up to you to take advantage of the help that is being offered to you. It is up to you to grab the chance for a new beginning. You have to be willing in body and mind to work towards your sobriety or you will never reach it.
