Opiate Detox Rehabilitation Treatment in Houston

Houston Residential Opiate Addiction Detox Treatment

Opiates have all have been utilized at some point in history for medical purposes (specifically for pain management and cough suppression). Today, however, these substances are more commonly abused for recreational and self-medication purposes, which is an extremely dangerous practice.

Today, heroin reigns as the most widely abused opiate by far. An opiate is a substance that is directly derived from the opium poppy plant, where an opioid is either completely synthetic or semi-synthetic. More than 1 million people in America struggle with heroin addiction, and 130 people die each day from opioid overdoses that include heroin and other opiates. These statistics continue to climb as more and more people go from abusing prescription painkillers to the abuse of heroin. This switch is becoming more popular as heroin is easier to obtain and is much cheaper, allowing those who are addicted to opioids to continue to abuse them without paying nearly as much as they otherwise would have been.

With as many people abusing opiates as there are today, it is important to be educated about what the signs of opiate addiction are, as well as when it might be time to reach out for help through our opiate detox in Houston programs.

Signs of an Opiate Addiction

Opiates are easily some of the most addictive substances in the entire world, so when they are abused in any capacity, they can become habit-forming. It is not always easy to recognize when an opiate addiction is occurring, especially when it first begins. However, opiate addictions tend to invade all areas of one’s life, making it nearly impossible to hide after a while.  

The signs of opiate addiction and the intensity of them will be reflective of the user’s relationship opiates. Therefore, the amount of opiates that are being abused, how often they are being consumed, and if they are being abused with any other substances will impact the way in which someone with an opiate use disorder behaves. Generally, the most common signs of an opiate addiction include the following:

  • Losing interest in previously enjoyed activities or hobbies
  • Manipulating friends or family members in an attempt to get money to buy more opiates
  • Using in secret or attempting to hide related paraphernalia
  • Bartering with friends or family such as by saying, “I promise this is the last time I’ll ever use if you do X for me”
  • Losing a job, becoming separated or divorced from a significant other, losing child custody, and/or being unable to keep a roof over their head due to constant preoccupation and the funding of the opiate addiction
  • Struggling to maintain personal hygiene and overall health and wellbeing

These behaviors and symptoms of opiate use can come on quickly and without much of a notice, especially if an individual starts abusing a lot at a time. In the event that someone starts to show these symptoms, it is important that friends and family avoid denying the problem and focus on when and how to get help for the user with a successful opiate rehab in Houston plan.

Opiate Rehab in Houston

Any type of addiction, including an opiate addiction, can be deadly if the proper treatment is not obtained. This disease is very similar to other diseases like diabetes or cancer where if it is allowed to persist without any intervention, life-threatening effects can occur and fatality becomes possible. Therefore, when someone is addicted to opiates, it is imperative that he or she get professional care in order to learn how to manage and live with this disease.

Unfortunately, addiction is unlike diabetes or cancer in that people who get diagnosed with a substance use disorder do not immediately go and get treatment as people with other diseases might. This is because of how powerfully addictive opiates are, as the thought of not being able to use again can be a no-go for a user. But because of how fatal this disease can be, it is critical that someone who is experiencing the following get help as quickly as possible to prevent a tragic outcome with out opiate rehab in Houston:

  • Being unable to stop using opiates without experiencing painful symptoms of withdrawal
  • Constantly needing to consume larger amounts of opiates in order to achieve a high
  • Making efforts to stop using or to cut back but being unable to do so
  • Continuing to abuse opiates despite having physical or psychological problems because of that abuse
  • Continuing to abuse opiates even after something one or more negative consequences have occurred
  • Abusing opiates in dangerous situations (e.g. in an unfamiliar place, while driving, or when unaware of where the opiates came from)
  • Suffering one or more overdoses
  • Altering how opiates are abused, such as going from swallowing opiates to shooting them up

If a user is refusing to get professional treatment for him or herself, loved ones or family members can work together to develop a plan or reach out and contact an interventionist who can help assist in the process of getting the user to accept treatment with out opiate detox in Houston.

Residential treatment

Residential opiate rehab treatment at Taylor Recovery Drug Addiction Rehabilitation Center requires all patients to live on campus for as long as they are in this program. Generally, patients remain in residential treatment anywhere from 30-90 days. During that time, if patients are in need of detox services, they will be able to obtain those services right away.

All patients will have individual therapy sessions with a trained therapist, as well as group counseling sessions with others in the program. Other types of therapies, such as cognitive behavioral therapy, trauma therapies like eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), and experiential therapies all work together to help provide comprehensive care to each patient. When patients complete residential treatment, they can return home, step-down into a lower level of treatment, and/or move into a sober living house.

Partial hospitalization

Patients who do not have a need for residential treatment, but who still require intensive care can benefit most from a partial hospitalization program. Specifically, those patients who have medical needs related to a physical complication or even minor detox needs are a good fit for partial hospitalization, as they will be able to be monitored on a daily basis as they visit the facility.

Partial hospitalization is a type of opiate treatment at Taylor Recovery Center that does not require patients to live at the facility, rather continue to live at home or in a sober living space while getting treated for their opiate addiction. Like other treatment programs, patients of a partial hospitalization program spend the majority of their time engaged in various therapies like individual, group, and behavioral therapies. Patients usually remain in a partial hospitalization program from 6-8 weeks, go to the facility daily, and spend a full day there at a time.

Outpatient treatment

Ideal for those who do not have a severe opiate addiction, who do not need detox, and who are able to maintain their health and wellbeing while living at home are a good fit for outpatient opiate rehab treatment in Houston at Taylor Recovery Drug Addiction Rehabilitation Center. Like partial hospitalization, outpatient treatment can last from 6-8 weeks. However, patients only go to the facility a few times a week and only for a couple hours at a time. This allows them to continue to work, go to school, or hold up all other responsibilities they have within their lives all while getting treatment for their opiate addiction. Patients of outpatient treatment will work with therapists to participate in a multitude of different therapies deemed beneficial for their recovery.
