Opiates are powerful substances. They provide pain relief and relaxation and when abused, cause a rush of euphoria and temporary satisfaction. These substances are highly addictive, however, and cause drug dependence. The Discovery House offers opiate addiction treatment options for those who have found themselves dependent on this type of drug.
Opiates come in different forms. Many opiates, such as morphine, oxycodone and codeine, are pills, capsules or suspensions that can be taken under the care of a doctor. Heroin is an opiate that is injected and is illegal and sold as a street drug. Opiates are habit-forming, and even using one of these drugs once can cause cravings for more.
Opiates create a true physical dependence, so that when the drug is stopped, the user experiences withdrawal symptoms. Opiate withdrawal is rarely life threatening, but it does cause severe flu-like symptoms that can be accompanied by aches and pains, insomnia, and anxiety. Our Certified Counseling staff is available 24 hours a day to ensure that this withdrawal process is as painless as possible.
Opiate Addiction Treatment Options
In order to fully recover from an opiate addiction, the user must not only detox physically from their substance, but also go through behavioral therapy and counseling at the best drug and alcohol treatment centers to learn how to successfully re-enter the “real” world addiction-free. At The Discovery House, we meet every resident where they are and address the underlying core issues that cause addiction, and those factors that contribute to addictive patterns including depression, anxiety and other disorders. The Discovery House provides residents with opiate addiction treatment options that ensure each individual gets the care they need and deserve. Our long term treatment centers for addiction welcome residents into our opiate addiction treatment programs, which are followed by a residential period at our luxury rehab facilities followed by outpatient treatment. Each resident receives follow up care as needed and is encouraged to take part in our alumni support program.
Our staff is comprised of compassionate professionals, providing residents with solutions for the physical, psychological, sociological, emotional and spiritual issues they struggle to address. When someone who has been dependent on opiates cleanses their body from their substance, it is also necessary to treat the psychological issues associated with their addiction. Our therapists use various modalities and treatment options to help residents get to the root of their addiction and heal any areas of their life that are out of balance. Our nutrition program helps them establish a healthy diet and lifestyle. Music and Psycho-Drama therapies help individuals more easily express their emotions. All of our therapies work together to create holistic healing for the individual.
