a doctor comforting her patient as she discusses opiate addiction treatment programOpiates are a frequently used medication prescribed by doctors to treat chronic pain and manage pain after surgery. Unfortunately, opiates and opioids are incredibly potent. Thus, individuals can follow their doctor’s directions and find themselves inadvertently addicted. When this happens, individuals need professional help to recover. At Las Vegas Recovery Center, we offer a wide range of substance abuse treatment programs. Among them is our opiate addiction treatment program, where individuals struggling with prescription opioid dependency or any other opiate addiction can heal and recover.

Recognizing Opiate Addiction

The signs of opioid addiction are not always evident. Managing pain can be a challenge. Also, it can easily be misunderstood by others unfamiliar with how chronic pain affects the body and mind. An individual can abuse opioids or opiates for a long time before they become aware of it being a problem. Broadly speaking, if you or someone you care about shows any of the following signs, then they may be addicted:

  • Increased preoccupation with getting and using opiates
  • Withdrawal from normal routine, activities, friends, or family
  • Sudden or drastic changes in appetite, sleep, mood, or behavior
  • Possession of drug-related paraphernalia
  • An overall decline in the quality of life or one’s care of themselves
  • Ignoring responsibilities or failing to meet obligations at home, work, or school

These are broad signs to look for. However, if you notice one or more them in yourself or someone you care about, it makes sense to look for help from an opiate addiction treatment program.

Therapies in Our Opiate Addiction Treatment Program

Typically, detox is the first stage of treatment when someone is dependent upon opiates. By working through the often uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms in a medically monitored environment like that offered by Las Vegas Recovery Center, individuals can flush the drug out of their system. However, treating addiction doesn’t just mean addressing the physical aspects of the disease. Our opiate addiction treatment program also focuses on the psychological side of dependency.

Through individual therapy and group therapy, individuals identify their triggers, learn new and healthier coping mechanisms, and find strategies to overcome their issues. For many individuals, substance abuse is prompted by some underlying mental health issue. Often, this underlying condition like depression, anxiety disorders, or PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) is unknown to the individual; they are unaware they are dealing with it in an unhealthy manner. When it comes to opiates, underlying mental health concerns, as well as physical needs, combine to lead an individual into dependency. Our therapies help make individuals aware of their issues and give them the tools they need to heal. Some other therapeutic approaches we use at Las Vegas Recovery Center include:

  • Trauma therapy
  • Family therapy
  • Motivational enhancement therapy
  • Cognitive-behavioral therapy
  • Dialectical behavior therapy
  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy
