Far too often, someone who has had major surgery and is prescribed opioid medications to deal with the pain becomes addicted to the drug. Unfortunately, opioid addiction is commonplace in modern society, and addiction to the drug can have deadly consequences. The first step towards recovering from your opioid addiction is admission into Renaissance Recovery’s substance abuse treatment center in Southern California.
How Does Opioid Addiction Start?
Many people today are in a similar situation as you. Within the past few decades, pharmacologists encouraged many doctors to prescribe opioids for their patients. The patient takes the drug and finds that they feel relaxed and happy. That is until the effects wear off, and the patient feels like they want more. All too soon, the pills have run out, and the doctor won’t prescribe any more. The patient then goes “doctor shopping,” which is finding a doctor who doesn’t know their history and will prescribe more opioids. With that, the patient has more of the drug, and the cycle starts all over again.
Sadly, this cycle can go further than this. Some of the signs of opioid abuse include, but are not limited to:
- Changes in sleep habits
- Weight loss
- Frequent flu-like symptoms
- Lack of hygiene
- Isolation from family or friends
- Stealing from family, friends, or businesses
- Financial difficulties
Why Choose an Opioid Addiction Treatment Center?
When you come to Renaissance Recovery Center’s opioid addiction treatment center in Orange County, CA, you know you are getting the treatment you need. We offer a variety of addiction treatment programs, as well as evidence-based and holistic therapy options. To help you beat your opioid addiction, we will develop a treatment program that addresses your needs. We will also give you the skills you need to resist temptations and cope with stress.
One of our treatment options is our medication-assisted treatment program. Many times, the withdrawal process from opioids can be excruciating, which can cause you to be reluctant to get treatment. With medication, however, these symptoms can be decreased and, in some cases, eliminated. Medicine also reduces the cravings people experience during the first days of sobriety. This lapse can help you focus on the treatment rather than the yearning for the opioid. We use medications such as Suboxone and Vivitrol.
Additionally, we know that addiction often is fueled by or fuels a mental disorder. If you don’t get treatment for the mental issue at the same time as your opioid addiction, you risk relapse once you leave the opioid addiction treatment center. Therefore, we offer a dual diagnosis program for people who need it. In a dual diagnosis treatment program, you will work with a therapist to get to the root cause of your addiction. We will then work with you to get your mental disorder under control through coping mechanisms and various therapy options.
