The opioid epidemic is the most destructive public health crisis in the United States today.
A well-intentioned medical industry began prescribing opioids in the 1990’s to alleviate pain experienced by their patients suffering from injuries, surgery and chronic pain. Unfortunately, opioids have a high risk for abuse and anybody can easily become addicted. The opioid overdose epidemic is one of the greatest public health concerns in the United States today. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports more than 72,000 Americans died from some form of drug overdose in 2017 alone. That’s nearly 200 people per day, an increase in nearly 10% from the year before. Much of this increase is a direct result from prescription and synthetic opioids.
According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA):
Over 2.5 million Americans suffer from opioid dependence
Use of opioids including heroin and prescription pain relivers can lead to neonatal abstinence syndrome
Opioid abuse contributes to the spread of infectious diseases like HIV and Hepatitis.
Pain management has now become a deadly enterprise in the United States. Even with the high risks associated with opioid prescription, many doctors have been resistant to changing how to care for and prescribe pain treatment for their patients. No medical doctor would want to see a person suffer from chronic pain, so opioids have been widely used to alleviate discomfort associated with long-term and short-term acute pain.
Opioid Painkillers Are Highly Addictive
Opioid receptors in the brain are so powerful, they can lead to rapid addiction in every type of person. Prescription pain relievers like oxycodone, hydrocodone and fentanyl carry such a high risk of addiction that many who are initially prescribed the drug, often turn to street drugs like heroin or random pills once their prescription runs out. Opioid withdrawal symptoms can be very difficult to deal with on your own, so it is best to have experience and a medical staff to help you through it. Sadly, many do not even realize they have an opioid abuse disorder until their prescriptions run out and they begin experiencing the severe withdrawal symptoms. We offer you help in 3 separate stages:
Inpatient Detox – You will be medically supervised as you experience acute withdrawal symptoms.
Inpatient Rehab Program – You will stay with us while we work you through your early stages of sobriety, helping you navigate withdrawal symptoms and cravings.
Extended Outpatient Services – Individual and group therapy sessions that help you reintegrate into society with sober living as a focus.
Treatment programs for substance abuse disorders like addiction to opioids are highly recommended due to the extreme potential for misuse and relapse.
If you are reading this, it is likely that you, a family member, friend or other loved one has been negatively affected by opioid abuse.
For many addicts, it may seem physically impossible to quit using opioids as they affect your central nervous system. If this is the case, we urge you to seek help at our rehab facility immediately. More Than Rehab’s comprehensive treatment facilities are among the best in the United States. We use an evidence-based approach to substance abuse disorder rehabilitation. Beginning with a full medical detox, followed by an intensive inpatient program of support for the difficult first 30 days. Some people are successful with short-term replacement therapy, helping ease their cravings with medication assisted treatment (MAT), using methadone or buprenorphine to alleviate opioid withdrawal cravings. This is all on a case by case basis and we will always work with you to find the most effective treatment based on your individual needs.
We accept most health insurance plans so you can begin your recovery process as soon as you call.
Maintaining Sobriety is our Focus
A wide-range of treatment options are available for you, as we focus on your individual needs. Different strategies are more successful for different people so MTR has developed multiple treatment plans to help our clients begin their journey to a lifetime of sobriety.
Generally, a long-term treatment plan over the first 90 days is recommended for patients with a severe opioid abuse disorder. Our extended care outpatient treatment combines a multitude of strategies including individual therapy, family therapy, relapse prevention and sober living strategies. Through our therapy sessions, we emphasize your individual needs towards sober living. This emphasis helps reintegrate our patients to life in the outside world with tools they require to help them overcome their opioid addiction. With this process, we always aim for the total health of the individual. This process may involve a dual diagnosis monitoring for other mental health disorders that may contribute to the existing substance abuse disorder. Looking at overall behavioral health can build confidence in the patient to overcome their addiction and live a rewarding life of long-term sobriety.
