If you are struggling with opioid drug abuse, it can be easy to feel isolated and alone. But with the help of our opioid treatment programs at Harmony Outpatient, you can reclaim your life from addiction and begin your journey toward recovery.
With compassionate care and our dedicated team of addiction specialists who are well versed in the necessary support those who struggle with this type of addiction require, you can make addiction a thing of the past.
What is Opioid Use Disorder?
One of the hardest parts of struggling with opioid use disorder is that prescription opioids are still one of the most common pain medications offered to patients for various reasons, including dental procedures and most major and minor surgeries. Opioids are a family of drugs made from the opium poppy plant. They include prescribed medications like Vicodin and morphine, as well as illicit opioids like heroin.
When used recreationally, opioids block the pain receptors in the brain and release high levels of dopamine, which is the main reason they are highly addictive. A person struggling with opioid abuse will start to develop a tolerance for opiates, which puts them at a higher risk for opioid overdose. As with other examples of substance abuse, a person should consider substance abuse treatment for their opioid addiction when they can no longer participate in everyday life without regular opioid use.
What to Expect During Opioid Addiction Treatment
As is true at other treatment centers, our opioid treatment program at Harmony Outpatient includes a combination of medical detox and mental health services specially curated for those who are struggling with opioid addiction. We help you determine which treatment programs are best for you based on your need for relapse prevention and mental health support.
A person who is struggling with opioid addiction will experience opioid withdrawal symptoms that are uncomfortable and can even be deadly if not treated properly. That is why we offer medication-assisted treatment (MAT) at Harmony Outpatient. Through the supervised dosage of a partial opioid agonist like methadone, individuals can slowly wean themselves off of the substance safely, which greatly reduces the risk of relapse. While not a good fit for everyone, MAT often provides tremendous results for those battling severe opioid addictions.
Mental Health Counseling
Once the detox process has been completed, the healing work has only just begun! Mental health counseling is a vital component of overcoming addiction. Substance abuse and mental health often go hand in hand, which is why it’s crucial to participate in mental health counseling throughout your opioid treatment. In a safe space led by our addiction specialists, you will participate in behavioral therapy and group therapy to better address the cause of your opioid addiction, and develop healthy life skills that can help you manage triggers in the future, and learn positive coping skills for when temptations arise.
Our Treatment Options
Our treatment options at Harmony Outpatient are focused on various outpatient rehab options. Our team of addiction specialists will work directly with you to help determine which level of outpatient rehab is the best fit for your needs and the level of mental health support that accompanies this level of care. Most individuals attend therapy three to five days a week while returning home at night to attend to other responsibilities. This allows individuals to get the care and support they need to build a foundation of sustainable recovery while still allowing individuals to attend to daily responsibilities.
