Also referred to as Tramadol, Ultram is a prescription painkiller than can be used for moderate to severe pain. The medication is often used following surgery to treat the pain and discomfort, or it can be used prior to surgery to reduce the shivering felt from anesthesia. Given the strength of this narcotic, people can become addicted to the drug and to the euphoric feeling it can bring. The Recovery Village offers an assortment of treatment plans and programs to help treat an Ultram addiction.
Figuring out how to fight an Ultram addiction can feel a bit intimidating at first, but The Recovery Village can help people through the process. It’s crucial to seek help from medical professionals when attempting to detox so that the process can completed safely and properly. When individuals attempt to detox on their own through methods like t quitting “cold turkey” or tapering, without assistance from physicians, withdrawal symptoms can be more severe and arrive faster than they would with proper medical support. Patients are more likely to experience setbacks without professional supervision .
The amount of time that is spent in Ultram rehab varies on how long the addiction has been in place, the prescribed dosage and if there any other kinds of mental health issues that have been suppressed and also need to be treated. Since each person has a different physical build and chemical makeup, the amount of time that Ultram takes to leave a person’s body will vary.
When it comes to seeking treatment, one thing that holds many people back is the thought of how much it may cost to enter a rehab facility. Not many people are aware that private insurance can cover treatment for a substance use disorders along with any other co-occurring disorders. The amount of coverage offered by each company is different, so calling the insurance company to find out the stipulations is recommended.
If private insurance isn’t an option, individuals seeking treatment can look into government-sponsored insurance companies like Medicare and Medicaid for an alternative way to cover the expenses of treatment. Grants and private pay options are also accepted to help cover the cost of treatment. Additionally, low-income and free treatment centers are available to help patients who struggle financially but want a chance at a drug-free life. These centers often have long wait lists, so if waiting to begin treatment is not a possibility, it is recommended to research the aforementioned payment options. The Recovery Village can help individuals figure out the best payment option available to them.
Deciding what kind of treatment plan can work best can be difficult if the severity of an addiction isn’t fully understood. That is why it is best for a patient’s recovery to work with medical professionals and clinical therapists to determine the best form of treatment. The Recovery Village encourages patients to take part in various kinds of therapy, such as one-on-one counseling, group therapy and recreational therapy. Through t inpatient and outpatient care patients can have the chance to learn different ways to further their recovery and manage their addiction.
Offering 24-hour care and supervision, inpatient treatment is an effective way to manage an addiction following detoxification. This program is helpful for those who feel they can not balance everyday tasks while detoxing on their own. This program gives patients the peace of mind that they will have the proper support with them day and night to help with their uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms. The length of a patient’s stay will depend on the severity of their addiction as well as the duration of withdrawal process.
Living in one of the facilities that The Recovery Village has may not be possible for everyone, therefore outpatient treatment is also available. Outpatient treatment can be just as effective as inpatient treatment, and allows patients to live at home and continue with their responsibilities while commuting to a rehab center. The amount of time spent at the facility will be determined by the severity of the addiction and how much time a treatment team feels is needed to successfully enter into recovery.
In order to figure out what kind of treatment plan will work best with a patient’s specific addiction, the patient must undergo an evaluation by a team of doctors and therapists. In doing this, the team will be able to determine the best route to take to help the patient overcome their addiction to Ultram. Additionally, during this time the doctors and therapists can find out if there are any underlying mental illnesses that need to be taken care of during their time in treatment as well.
Once an evaluation finishes, the Ultram detox process begins. This process begins when Ultram stops being taken and the body begins ridding itself of the drug. During this time, the body tends to go into overdrive as it tries to repair itself which is when withdrawal symptoms begin to appear. Withdrawal symptoms include:
- Excessive sweating
- Slowed breathing
During this time it’s crucial to keep in mind that the withdrawal symptoms are the body cleaning itself out of all the Ultram that has been put into it. These withdrawal effects are why it’s important to have medical professionals around while detoxing, as they may be able to prescribe medications to ease the symptoms that are experienced.
Once detox successfully completes, patients enter the aftercare stage. During this time, patients can use the coping skills that were learned while in treatment and apply them to their life. Ultram may be out of the body at this point, but the continued urges that are associated with addiction always needs to be managed. This is why it is usually suggested that patients continue with regular therapy sessions once treatment is completed in order to reinforce their recovery. It may also be suggested for the patient to live in a sober-living community or attend a 12-step program to ensure continued sobriety.
