What Are Opioids?
Opioids are synthetic drugs made from the opium poppy. Used for centuries for its powerful painkiller and euphoric effects, the opium poppy is significantly weaker than modern opioids. Made in labs, opioids slow down the brain and body, block pain receptors, and can cause euphoric effects. Over time, opioids change the brain, making them especially difficult to stop talking without medically-assisted detox and psychiatric care. For some, opioid use is self-medicating for mental and emotional pain, not just physical pain. Individual, group, and family therapy is essential to opioid recovery.
5 Benefits of Opioid Addiction Treatment
Because opioids change the brain, they cause a more intense withdrawal than other drugs. Commonly called “dope sickness,” opioid withdrawal is physically, emotionally, and mentally painful. Managing withdrawal is only one benefit of opioid addiction treatment. Other benefits include:
- Discovering the Root Cause of Opioid Addiction: Today, at least half of people struggling with opioids and other substances also have co-occurring disorders like depression, anxiety, and bipolar disorder. A dual diagnosis can help uncover these mood disorders, unprocessed trauma, and other life factors that increase addiction triggers and cravings.
- Preventing Relapse and Opioid Death: Studies show that those who stick with an opioid addiction treatment program are less likely to relapse and potentially overdose.
- Medication-Assisted Detox: Medication-assisted detox with Vivitrol, Suboxone, or Methadone will reduce the symptoms of opioid withdrawal. It can also help mitigate opioid-related health complications. Medically assisted detox can increase program retention rates and reduce the risk of relapse.
- Tools for Lasting Change: One of the greatest benefits of an opioid abuse program is the range of therapeutic tools for daily life and stress management clients receive. Depending on the program, clients may also receive job skills training, anger management training, mindfulness training, and other services to provide them with a healthy structure, coping mechanisms, and confidence throughout recovery.
- Ongoing Support: Addiction can be lonely. Treatment offers clients community and professional support. Through alumni programs and sponsorships, clients continue to build connections and help one another through each stage of opioid recovery.
These are only a few benefits of opioid substance abuse treatment. The most important thing to remember is that detox and mental health services can reduce the risk of opioid-related death and help clients understand their thoughts, belief systems, and behaviors.
