Opioid Addiction Rehab Treatment

Signs and Symptoms of Opioid Addiction

Opioid addiction is difficult to live with, but it can be even harder to identify within yourself. Often substance abuse and addiction develop over a long period of time, so it may take a while to realise that opioid rehab is required to overcome your addiction. Consider opioid addiction rehab treatment today.

When you become tolerant to prescription drugs, it can be hard to spot the dangers of your substance abuse. Particularly for people who take prescription drugs which have been prescribed by a doctor, you may not realise that you have developed an addiction.

Addiction to opiates such as codeine, oxycodone and morphine require rehab treatment to overcome. Professional addiction treatment will provide you with a space to detox and recover from addiction in a safe and monitored environment.

If you are unsure whether you have an opioid addiction, read the below signs:

  • Using prescription opioids that you no longer need or at a higher dose
  • Lying to doctors and chemists to access more prescription opioids
  • Feeling paranoid or experiencing mood swings if you go too long without opioids
  • Do you have a family history of addiction?
  • Have you noticed yourself withdrawing away from your friends and family members?
  • Hiding your opioid use from people you know you can trust
  • Buying a controlled opioid illegally, such as heroin
  • A noticeable decline in your physical health
  • Do you want to change your life but feel powerless to do so?
  • Experience negative side effects from your opioid use but continue to take them
  • Experience withdrawal symptoms if you go too long without any opioids

There is no shame in struggling with drug addiction. It isn’t easy to overcome, but with a bit of work and dedication at an opioid rehab, you will be able to achieve long-term recovery and live a happy and healthy life free from addiction.

Residential Rehab for Opioid Addiction

It has been found that when you are struggling with an addiction, especially one with as great a hold on you as opioid addiction, the best place for you is to seek treatment in a drug rehab centre. Specifically, a residential opioid rehab centre where you will be removed from the harmful environment enabling your addiction and place somewhere where you will only be supported and helped. We can help you seek opioid addiction rehab treatment at a reputable centre near you.

During your stay at the rehab facility, there is no chance of relapsing during your stay while you are vulnerable, as you will have no access to opioids. You will be monitored by a team of rehabilitation specialists who are there to help you to work through the various treatments needed.

The treatments in a private drug and alcohol rehab are especially important as they allow you to manage your addiction in the long run and potentially go the rest of your life without abusing substances again.

These treatments are provided in rehab and can provide a linear recovery process. But you should know that no matter what you decide on, you should never attempt to cut off your opioid use alone through a home detox as this can be very dangerous without medical support.

This is because you will experience opioid withdrawal symptoms that include:

  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Headache
  • Diarrhoea
  • Mood swings
  • Chills and hot flashes
  • Light sensitivity
  • Muscle pain or spasms
  • Anxiety and depression
  • Insomnia
  • Paranoia and delirium
  • Dehydration
  • Hallucinations
  • Seizures


How Do Detox and Therapies Treat Opiate Addiction?

To work through opioid withdrawal symptoms safely, you will need to undergo opioid detox treatment. The detox process withdraws your body from the opioids safely and allows you never to need to use them again. The detox is done with careful medical supervision so that your withdrawal symptoms can be monitored, and you can be provided with medication to relieve the symptoms before they progress to the point of danger.

The detox makes it possible for you to work towards long-term recovery as it makes it safe for you. It also deals with physical addiction, and after this process, you should see some relief to your cravings for opioids. However, as addiction is a chronic condition that cannot be cured, you still need to learn how to manage it.

You will learn how to do this through therapeutic treatments. The exact treatments that you receive will depend on your own specific needs, but here are a few examples of therapies you may be given:

  • Holistic therapy, such as art therapy, is designed to help those that struggle to communicate their thoughts and feelings by giving them a creative outlet to focus their minds and take the pressure away from the therapy session.
  • Group therapy shows that you are not alone and is a standard part of your treatment. You will work with others staying at the opioid rehab centre to understand your mental health, identify your triggers and, most importantly, learn healthier coping mechanisms to replace your substance abuse.
  • Cognitive behavioural therapy is a goal-orientated therapy that will help you to manage the negative parts of your mental health, such as your depression, anxiety or anger issues
  • Motivational interviewing is when you distract from your cravings and your problems with positive alternatives.
