Opiate addictions can be some of the hardest to overcome. If you’ve already made multiple attempts to stop using opiates with little to no success, you’re not alone. San Antonio Treatment Center’s use of proven medication-based treatment approaches can help you get through the opiate detox withdrawal stage.
When taken as prescribed, opiates drugs, such as hydrocodone and fentanyl produce pain-relieving effects and are relatively safe. When abused, prescription opiates become just as addictive as heroin. Once addiction develops, the brain and body can no longer function normally without the drug.
San Antonio Treatment Center specializes in using opiate addiction treatment medications, which are known for their ability to stabilize brain and body functions. These medications not only restore the body’s chemical systems back to normal, but also provide considerable relief from the emotional roller coaster that comes from opiate abuse.
Treatment program options offered include:
Considering how physical and emotional withdrawal effects account for why it’s so hard to abstain from continued drug abuse, the use of medication therapies greatly reduces the degree of discomfort experienced in opiate detox. The medication therapy treatments used by our program also reduce drug cravings, which can be just as difficult to bear as the physical effects of withdrawal when left untreated.
While medical treatments make up a big part of the detox process, the effects of opiate abuse do damage to your psychological well-being as well as your physical health. In effect, drug-using behaviors turn into habits that ultimately change the way the brain thinks. As a result, long-term opiate abuse produces a lifestyle of its own, so it’s equally important to break the body and the mind’s dependence on opiates during the detox stage.
For these reasons, San Antonio Treatment Center offers additional services designed to help you develop the types of thinking, habits and behaviors that promote continued abstinence from drug use. Also known as behavioral treatment interventions, these services are an important part of the addiction recovery process.
Behavioral interventions offered include:
More often than not, long-term opiate abuse creates a chaotic lifestyle and ongoing emotional turmoil. In order to counteract these effects, San Antonio Treatment Center requires patients and staff to adhere to certain policy guidelines. Program policies work to maintain a safe, secure treatment environment, which is essential to promoting the type of healing and growth that takes place in recovery.
