Treatment for Opioid Addiction

Treatment for Opioid Addiction at Park Royal

Opioids are a highly-addictive prescription narcotic medication used to manage moderate-to-severe pain in individuals suffering from cancer, burns, injuries, and other conditions. Most people who visit the doctor or emergency room for pain-related concerns and are prescribed opioid narcotics such as Vicodin, OxyContin, and hydrocodone take the medication exactly as directed. When the time comes to discontinue the drug, they do so without problems. However, there are a growing number of people who use these narcotics in a nonmedical manner. This is called prescription drug abuse, and it’s a growing problem in the United States.

Nearly 5 million people are physically and psychologically dependent upon opioid narcotics and over 17,000 people have died from opiate abuse in the United States. People who begin to abuse opiates do so in order to achieve the feelings of blissful joy and calm well-being associated with the drugs. These people will consume larger and larger amounts of the drug in order to achieve the same high as their bodies becomes dependent upon the opiate. They may try to cut down their usage, knowing that addiction is a terrible disease, only to discover unpleasant withdrawal symptoms. Soon, all that is left in their life is a vicious cycle of obsessively seeking the narcotic, using the drugs, then recovering from the effects of the drugs, which is a dangerous cycle that will continue if help from a professional opiate addiction treatment and rehab center is not sought.

Many people who abuse prescription narcotics are addicted to more than one substance. Some people combine opiates with other downer drugs such as benzodiazepines or alcohol to increase the mellowness of the high. This combination of multiple respiratory depressants can lead to coma and death quite easily. Others combine opiates with stimulants such as methamphetamine or cocaine in order to reduce the unpleasant side effects of stimulant abuse. This combination of uppers and downers can lead to cardiovascular complications such as heart attack and stroke.

There are a number of people who falsely believe if a medication is prescribed by a physician, it must be safe to take. This could not be further from the truth – many medications can cause terrible side effects even when taken at the recommended dosage. Prescription narcotics are dangerous drugs that can be a godsend for people trying to manage pain-related conditions or they can cause death and destruction for those who abuse them and become addicted. Fortunately, Park Royal Hospital in Fort Myers, FL offers high-quality opiate addiction treatment and detox at our center where you can become sober and find health and wellness once more.

Types of Treatment

Types of Treatment and Rehab Used at Our Fort Myer’s Center

When you come to us seeking treatment at our center for an opiate addiction, we’ll spend a great deal of time getting to know you. Our amazing treatment team will perform a thorough medical and psychological examination to determine the degree to which your body is dependent upon opiates and the existence of any co-occurring mental illnesses. If it is determined that you are physically dependent upon opioids, you will undergo detoxification as the first step of your rehab at our opiate addiction treatment and rehab center.

During our detoxification program at our Fort Myers center, you will be medically supervised 24-hours a day. We know how frightening detox can seem, so we take care to explain each step in the detox process before it occurs so you always know what’s happening next. You’ll be safely and effectively detoxed from opiates as comfortably as possible. Once you are medically stabilized, you’ll move onto the next phase of your addiction treatment and rehab at our center.

Medication may be used at the beginning of your stay with us at our opiate addiction treatment and rehab center as a part of your detox process or it may be prescribed to help manage some of the uncomfortable symptoms you may experience. Most times, individuals are able to be weaned off their medications throughout their stay in rehab at our center. Some people, however, do require long-term medication management to address any underlying co-occurring mental illnesses. In addition to detox and medication management, we also offer a number of therapeutic interventions to help you face the psychological issues surrounding addiction.

Group therapy is the primary therapeutic technique we use at Park Royal. We firmly believe that the very best way to overcome addiction is through the support of others who are struggling with similar issues. We offer process-based and psycho-educational groups at our opiate addiction treatment and rehab center that touch on a wide range of topics that may include anger management, addiction, co-occurring disorders, coping mechanisms, and relapse prevention.

Individual therapy is provided to allow you the opportunity to work through some of your more personal issues relating to opiate addiction in a more intimate environment. You’ll be able to explore issues surrounding your addiction, focus on problems addiction has caused in your life, and explore ways to prevent relapse after leaving our treatment center for rehab for your opiate addiction.

At Park Royal, we understand that you come from an interconnected network of loved ones, friends, and family. We also understand that addiction has probably put some strain on your relationships. We use our family therapy sessions at our opiate addiction treatment and rehab center to allow you the opportunity to start mending these broken relationships. We’ll also educate your loved ones about addiction, recovery, and co-occurring disorders and provide connections to available community resources such as Nar-Anon.

In addition to these effective therapeutic methods, we also offer a number of complimentary programs for those who come to us. These experiential programs include:

  • A.A. and N.A.
  • Physical therapy
  • Activities therapy
  • Occupational therapy
  • Recreational programs
  • Leisure activities

Continuing Care

Continuing Care – What Comes Next?

As your time with us at our opiate addiction treatment and rehab center comes to an end, you will work with your dedicated discharge team to determine the next step in your recovery journey and create an aftercare plan that addresses your ongoing needs. Many individuals discharging from our treatment center opt to join a residential treatment program in order to continue treatment in a similar structure to our inpatient program. Others leaving our treatment center for rehab for opiate addiction may opt to step down into our Intensive Outpatient Program, which offers services three hours a day for three days each week. Still others decide that they have made enough progress to be discharged to a stable and welcoming home environment. If you are discharging to home, we will work to set up referrals to a local service provider and connect you with available community resources. At Park Royal, we want you to take the skills you learned in rehab and use them to continue to live a life of sobriety and happiness.
