Depending on your treatment needs, one or several of the treatment options below can help you identify harmful behavioral patterns in your life and make positive changes to reduce your likelihood of developing an addiction. Overcoming drug addiction takes time and effort but by getting help right away, you will set yourself up for success.
How to Help an Addicted Loved One
If you are concerned about a loved ones’ using habits and believe that he or she may be addicted to opioids, only that person can decide to get help for themselves. However, they may be receptive to a one-on-one conversation about their abuse if you express your concern without judgment and offer to help them find treatment options. Otherwise, working with a professional interventionist to plan and host an intervention may be an effective way to communicate your concern and help your loved one enter treatment.
If your loved one decides to enter a rehab program, family members are often encouraged to participate. Since opioid abuse can have devastating effects on everyone involved, family members may be asked to attend family therapy sessions, workshops, and community support group meetings such as Al-Anon. Being a partner of an addict also puts you at risk for developing mental health issues or substance abuse problems of your own, so if your spouse or significant other is addicted to opioids , it is important to prioritize your health and well-being first.
Treatment Options for Opioid Painkiller Addiction
- Medical detox: Medical detox can help you adjust to a sober lifestyle as your body rids itself of the harmful toxins left behind by drug abuse. Detox also provides medical and clinical management of withdrawal symptoms to enhance your comfort and reduce your risk of relapse.
- Residential rehab: Residential rehab is an inpatient rehab program that offers structured addiction treatment programming with behavioral therapy, life skills development, and relapse prevention strategies. Gender-specific treatment also allows for more effective and individualized care.
- Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP): IOP is an intensive outpatient program that provides group therapy, peer accountability, and individualized support in recovery to help you overcome your addiction. Since it is an outpatient program, IOP gives you the flexibility to attend work, school, or tend to other personal responsibilities while you’re in rehab.
- Sober living: Sober living homes are furnished, gender-specific recovery-focused living environments for people in all stages of recovery. Each home offers safe, sober housing and recovery support services like employment assistance, drug testing, peer monitoring, and sober social activities for residents.
