It can be hard to recover from opioid addiction alone. If you’re struggling to stop using opioids, our addiction experts can help support you throughout your healing journey.

Opioids are powerful and highly addictive drugs, and these qualities can make it incredibly difficult to recover from opioid addiction alone. Those who struggle with opioid addiction often need professional addiction treatment to succeed in long-term recovery. 

Opioid addiction treatment options can include medical detoxinpatient or outpatient rehab, teletherapy, aftercare and participation in support groups. If you or someone you love is struggling with an opioid addiction, don’t wait to get help. Effective opioid rehab is available at the Orlando Recovery Center in Florida.

Professional Treatment at the Orlando Recovery Center

The Orlando Recovery Center approaches the addiction treatment process by looking at the whole person — not just their substance use. For example, we address co-occurring mental health disorders like anxiety or depression, which often contribute to substance use and addiction. We also provide family support, case management and long-term aftercare services that help each client build a solid, supportive foundation for post-rehab recovery.

Treatment Options for Treating Opioid Addiction

Because opioids are so addictive, treatment typically begins in an inpatient setting and gradually transitions to less intensive programs. With inpatient treatment, you stay at our accredited Orlando facility and receive an immersive rehab experience that focuses entirely on recovery. 

Due to the residential aspect of inpatient rehab, clients can receive many kinds of therapies. Your treatment plan may include a full schedule of behavioral therapy, counseling sessions and peer support group meetings. It may also include supplemental treatments that help you with specific needs, such as family therapy, recreational therapy and relapse prevention.

Outpatient rehab programs for opioid addiction are typically less intensive and less structured than inpatient programs. The specifics of a treatment plan may vary, but it often requires a time commitment of a few hours a week. During outpatient rehab, you may have group therapy or work one-on-one with a counselor. You may also receive medication-assisted treatment that helps prevent relapse and reduces cravings.

The Components of an Effective Treatment Program

Opioid addiction treatment can occur in many different settings and formats. It may take place in a high-end luxury rehab, a counseling center or a low-cost, state-funded facility. For treatment to be effective, however, it must contain certain components.

One of the most important components is dual diagnosis treatment. Many people who abuse drugs or alcohol are attempting to cope with mental health symptoms. In dual diagnosis treatment, clients receive mental health care for co-occurring mental health disorders in addition to addiction treatment. It is a particularly effective way to treat addiction because if mental health concerns are not addressed, addiction treatment may not be successful.

Treatment must also last for an adequate amount of time for recovery to be effective. The longer someone remains in treatment, the better their long-term outcomes usually are in recovery.

How To Know When It’s Time To Seek Treatment

Addiction can cause a variety of behavioral, emotional and physical changes. Signs that it may be time to seek help for opioid addiction can include:

  • Missing school, work or other obligations due to opioid use
  • Seeking out and using opioids despite negative life consequences
  • Craving opioids or obsessing about when you’ll get to use them next
  • Damaging relationships with friends, family members and loved ones
  • Losing interest in hobbies and activities you used to enjoy
  • Poor hygiene
  • Changes in mood, energy and sleep habits

Types of Treatment

A client’s treatment plan typically starts with intensive forms of care and gradually transitions to more independent programming. Treatment options at the Orlando Recovery Center include:

  • Medical detox: Before treatment begins, clients detox from opioids in a safe, supportive environment with 24/7 monitoring and care for withdrawal symptoms.
  • Inpatient treatment: Clients live in a residential setting at our facility and receive intensive treatment, therapy and counseling each day.
  • Partial hospitalization program (PHP): PHPs are similar to inpatient treatment, but clients have more independence and flexibility in their treatment schedules.
  • Outpatient treatment: Outpatient care provides ongoing treatment for clients who have graduated from the rehab setting and are transitioning back to day-to-day life.
  • Teletherapy: Telehealth services provide clients with an accessible way to continue counseling for mental health and substance abuse.
  • Aftercare: Aftercare programs help clients continue lifelong recovery by providing ongoing relapse prevention services, alumni support, peer group meetings and routine check-ins.
