Opioid addiction is said to be one of the most prevalent drug addictions of the U.S. today. Opiates are often prescribed by doctors to patients who need them in the process of recovering from pain, but some patients become severely dependent on these highly addictive drugs. Some of the more common opiate drugs are: OxyContin, Percocet, Heroin, Percodan, Demerol, Codeine, Morphine, Fentanyl, Hydrocodone and others.
Physical dependency of the drug means that if one client that has started to develop an attachment to a certain drug and wants to stop voluntarily, this may seem hard due to some symptoms of withdrawal which may be dangerous for some people or may be the case of every one person who has this attachment to drugs.
We offer various programs that can help lessen or minimize the consequences brought upon this certain addiction. Inpatient programs are commonly used among all rehabilitation facilities because of the severity of the addiction.
INPATIENT REHABILITATION PROGRAM
We place the client in an environment where he/she shares with other people with the same medical problem and we try to lessen the communication between the client’s family and relatives that can enhance better communication with the people in the same community. When the client starts to progress better and we see that their need of the addicted drug is lessening, we move them to the next level. By letting them communicate and interact with people outside the shared facility, we observe how an individual can cope up with the people. If positive results are observed, we open the clients up to the regular regime of a normal person. For instance, regimes such as going back to work or school or any form of other recreational activity that may eventually help them in minimizing the need of the prescribed drug and enabling them to stop taking the said drug.
This program may run from 30 days to 6 months depending on how the client reacts, learns and progress from the treatment. Usually, the pain killer rehabilitation program that we offer clients to reside in a community for 30 days only given that the clients have positive results or outcomes. But if the client is slowly making progress and one month isn’t enough for the rehabilitation, we extend the program up until the client is well on to stand on his/her own feet.
