Opioid and Opiate Addiction Treatment & Rehab

If you are addicted to opioids like OxyContin or opiates like morphine, know that your substance use disorder is highly treatable. The Recovery Village offers comprehensive options for opiate addiction treatment and has a variety of programs that are specialized to opioid addiction treatment as well. We use numerous strategies, including medical and therapeutic interventions as tools to help you adjust back to life without opiates. Our team at The Recovery Village is comprised of experts in addiction science who are dedicated to helping you fight this disease. Our goal is always the same: to empower you to maintain a lifetime of recovery.

Once addicted to opioids or opiates, it is extremely difficult to live a well-functioning life and more often than not, the disease ends up destroying families, careers, finances, and more. But this future doesn’t have to be yours. Effective treatment is closer than you think.   If you’re grappling with addiction, your best option is to enroll in a drug rehab program like one at The Recovery Village. Our experienced clinical staff has a firm understanding of how to treat opiate addiction and our opiate treatment can be customized to meet your specific needs.
The rehabilitation process for opioid addiction treatment is split up into four phases:
  1. Assessment: As the first step in any program, our evaluation team will conduct medical and psychiatric tests to determine the extent of your addiction and if you have any co-occurring mental health disorders. At The Recovery Village, we are particularly thorough in our new patient evaluation to make sure we understand your needs.
  2. Detoxification: This step is necessary to help the body cleanse itself of opiates or opioid drugs compounded in your system. Detoxification can be dangerous, so we take great care and measures in making sure the process is carried out in the safest possible way.
  3. Rehabilitation: Each rehab patient at The Recovery Village has a unique treatment plan specifically geared toward their needs. This includes a variety of therapies, individual counseling, group therapy, non-traditional or alternative therapies and more.
  4. Aftercare: Before rehab ends, our treatment team will work with you to create an aftercare plan that will prevent relapse. Our aftercare planning may include scheduling doctor appointments and drug testing with your primary care physician, sessions with a counselor, attendance at a Narcotics Anonymous meeting in your area, and possibly arranging room and board at a sober living home. This can help ensure the progress you made in rehab continues after going home, with a network of guidance and support in place.
opiate addiction rehab
There are several different opioid addiction treatment options, but not all are appropriate for everyone. Depending on the severity and length of your opioid or opiate addiction, treatment options may include medical detox, inpatient rehab, outpatient rehab, or a level in between, such as partial hospitalization or intensive outpatient. The right type of opioid addiction treatment for you may be recommended to you by a medical professional such as a primary care doctor, but the proper level of care will be determined after a thorough clinical assessment at a rehab center like The Recovery Village.
For those who have severe opiate or opioid addictions, inpatient rehab may be the best option. Following medical detox, this intensive level of care allows clients to stay on-site at a rehab center and includes 24-hour nursing staff monitoring, medication management (if necessary), counseling with a certified addiction therapist and more. Inpatient (or residential) rehab is a great next step for someone who still has trouble controlling the intense cravings for opiates when left unsupervised. Residential clients can benefit from comprehensive evaluation and treatment planning, an ongoing review of these treatment goals as the program progresses, and an opportunity to address challenges during treatment with the treatment planning staff. Here, clients can learn to live without opiate or opioid drugs, developing strong coping mechanisms and recovery skills through individual and 12-step group programs. Inpatient rehab is the foundation upon which to build a healthy future, and participating in this level of care dramatically improves clients’ chances of living in sobriety. Depending on what is clinically appropriate during a client’s stay, The Recovery Village’s inpatient treatment for opioid addiction may include:
    • 24-hour nursing supervision
    • Co-occurring disorders treatment
    • Medication management, as necessary
    • Nutritionally balanced meals prepared by a nutritionist
    • Individual therapy with an addiction counselor
    • Group or 12-step therapy addressing topics about substance abuse, grief and loss, sexuality, trauma survival, self-esteem, family patterns, assertiveness and interpersonal relationships
    • Family therapy, as needed
    • Alternative therapy options, such as meditation and yoga
    • Aftercare and discharge planning
Inpatient rehab gives people the opportunity to resolve to their own well-being and commit to good physical and mental health, relationships, finances and more. For this reason, it’s recommended to go through the full continuum of care programs (detox through aftercare). While an inpatient stay may last 28 days or longer, studies show the more time a person stays in rehab, the better their chances of recovery.
Outpatient treatment for opiate addiction offers most of the same elements of inpatient rehab, without living on-site. Outpatient rehab is often an ideal program for those who have already completed higher levels of care (detox, inpatient, partial hospitalization, etc.) and are physically and mentally stable but need assistance transitioning back to daily life. Outpatient clients are often able to maintain family and job responsibilities while attending therapy in the evenings or on the weekends. People in daytime outpatient rehab can learn valuable skills for sobriety while going back to school or work. Structured outpatient treatment typically involves regular meetings with an addiction professional and includes counseling and therapy sessions. The goal of therapy during this time is building a sense of autonomy for continued recovery. Our counselors may use motivational interviewing, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), multidimensional family therapy and contingency management during outpatient treatment. At The Recovery Village, outpatient treatment contains the following services:
  • Individual counseling
  • Group therapy
  • Psychiatric care for those with anxiety, depression and other co-occurring disorders
  • Nutritional counseling
Therapy is the crux of any drug rehab program. The Recovery Village ensures each patient, regardless of which program they are enrolled in, benefits from group therapy sessions. These groups take a collaborative approach to counseling and may involve more than one therapist in a small circle of people. Group therapy can be extremely useful in the opioid rehab environment because many clients face the stigma of addiction. They feel ashamed, embarrassed and have a low sense of self-worth. By sharing similar experiences with others, people can realize they are not alone in their feelings or experiences. The “in it together” mindset is a common thread among the group and helps promote healing faster. Group members can motivate others and encourage proper communication about their experiences, and then learn to process their reaction to these experiences. Profound friendships are formed during group therapy because many members relate to each other during this challenging time. Topics cover a wide range of areas, including education on addiction, stress management, coping with triggers and cravings, relapse management, forming healthy habits and relationships, managing medications and dealing with mental illness. At The Recovery Village, we have several different types of group therapy sessions.
  • Support groups provide mutual encouragement, feedback and a safe environment for clients to voice their frustrations and improve their communication skills.
  • Psychoeducational groups teach clients about the nature of addiction and relapse. Learning the science behind addiction helps break down the fear surrounding addiction and helps people understand their own experience with addiction better.
  • Cognitive behavioral groups help clients change their mindset surrounding addiction. Cognitive behavioral therapy rewires negative mindset so clients can continue the recovery journey in a constructive and positive manner.
  • Skills groups teach clients to face their triggers with sober living skills. The skills group focuses on providing new, healthy tools and strategies for dealing with challenges in life. For those who are unemployed, we may also teach job-seeking and budgeting tactics.
  • Experiential groups are similar to skills groups in that experiential sessions involve clients practicing the skills they’ve learned in a public setting. From dining out at restaurants to shopping, many situations are placed before clients to help them practice what they learn to better reach their goal of sober living.
Often, substance abuse is accompanied by a mental health condition or co-occurring disorder. This is referred to as a dual diagnosis. Co-occurring mental illnesses can spur an addiction or make an existing substance use disorder worse, and the two are often intertwined. In some cases, opiate addiction causes another mental illness to start. In other cases, a mental illness can lead to the onset of opiate use disorder. For example, you may feel depressed and use opiates to experience pleasure and joy. Or, you may feel depressed about your opiate use disorder and continue using the drugs to help you cope. It is absolutely critical to address substance abuse and co-occurring mental health disorders simultaneously in treatment for real healing to happen. Some common co-occurring mental illnesses that occur alongside opiate addiction include:
  • Depression
  • Anxiety disorders
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Schizophrenia
  • Eating disorders
  • Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
The Recovery Village is dedicated to treating each client’s addiction to the fullest extent. We know that this is not possible, however, without addressing a dual diagnosis. Our treatment plans start with a thorough evaluation to determine if you are facing a co-occurring disorder. From there, we can tailor a treatment plan to address both your opioid or opiate use disorder and dual diagnosis.
opiate treatment
Like any medical treatment, there is a fee associated with drug rehab. This is a necessary expense, however, as it is a life-saving measure that can help anyone facing opiate addiction bring their life back on track. Opioid addiction treatment options shouldn’t have to break the bank, and many insurance companies will help lighten the financial load. Our intake coordinators at The Recovery Village are well-versed in the nuances of insurance and can help each client understand what their plan will and won’t cover. In the instance that insurance does not cover the entire cost, there are other methods of paying for treatment, including private loans, public loans, scholarships, employee assistance programs and more. While it may seem burdensome, paying for a short time of rehab far outweighs the cost of living with addiction.

Does Insurance Cover Opiate and Opioid Addiction Treatment?

The cost of rehab programs varies from center to center. Typically the cost of inpatient treatment is higher than that of outpatient care due to the residential component. Many people delay or avoid treatment because they fear that they can’t afford it when, in fact, it is often covered by their health insurance policy. Our intake coordinators at The Recovery Village are experienced coordinating with a variety of insurance companies and will work with you one-on-one to discuss your insurance plan.

Alternative Payment Options for Rehab

If you believe you can’t afford rehab and finances are an issue, there are state and low-income government assistance options available. You may also consider borrowing money from a family member, or take out a personal loan to finance rehab. If you have questions about your insurance coverage, do not hesitate to call our intake coordinators. Calls are free and confidential, and there is no pressure to commit to treatment. Our interest is in helping you finance rehab and get the help you need for opiate addiction.
