Opiates are drugs prescribed to treat pain, and they have the potential to be extremely addicting if misused. The U.S. is experiencing an opioid overdose epidemic, as so many individuals can’t stop this addiction and unfortunately go too far. An opiate addiction can be treated, and it’s important to know the resources available to you. Depending on the individual and the severity of the substance abuse, addiction treatment for opiates can start with a customized intensive outpatient treatment program followed by outpatient care. Outpatient treatment is an ideal option for a person seeking opiate addiction treatment and counseling while maintaining their family, home life, and responsibilities. This treatment plan is designed for the second phase of a more rigorous schedule and our outpatient opiate programs are all customized to meet the needs of our patients.
How Does Outpatient Treatment Work?
An outpatient treatment program for an opiate addiction will consist on group and individualized therapy for a fixed amount of hours per week. Any individual who has successfully completed an intensive outpatient program will naturally transition into an outpatient program. This phase of treatment allows individuals to develop healthy life goals and learn relapse prevention techniques. Re-entering the daily lifestyle with a sober mindset can come with a lot of challenges and an outpatient program will help patients apply the recovery skills to everyday situations outside of treatment. Patients work on recovery goal setting and the steps it takes to achieve these goals.
Counselors will help patients establish a strong foundation for when they complete treatment and learn how to handle drug cravings and temptations. An opiate addiction should be treated with professional care, and it will take time for an individual to successfully recover from what was once a destructive disease. Outpatient opiate programs come with an individualized counseling plan that will set up an individual for success when they re-enter life outside of treatment.
Group therapy is a major component of an outpatient program and during these sessions, you gain a supportive network that will encourage you to stay on track during the recovery journey. Listening to similar stories about addiction can help you realize that you are not alone in this battle against substance abuse and you can get through these difficult times with a supportive environment. A qualified outpatient treatment program, such as the one offered at Cypress Recovery Solutions, will provide the same level of care as a more rigorous treatment plan, while adding a level of flexibility that makes this treatment possible for anyone. We have seen so many patients successfully complete our addiction treatment programs and go on to live a happy and healthy lifestyle in recovery. Long-term sobriety is always the main goal here at our treatment center in Naples.
