Outpatient Drug Rehab
Leaving a person suffering from substance addiction to their devices can damage them physically, mentally, emotionally, and socially. Encouraging them to seek drug rehabilitation expresses your care and concern for their well-being. Upon entering a treatment center, patients will undergo an evaluation to determine their neurological state, physical dependency, and lifestyle issues. This will help identify the best way to help the patient with their opiate dependence and withdrawal symptoms.
Outpatient Opiate Detox
It is extremely difficult for an individual to simply quit an opioid addiction without a medication-assisted treatment. Doing so may throw their system into shock and cause further medical issues and relapse. Typically, after missing the first dose of opioid, patients go into opiate withdrawal. Symptoms include sweating, rapid heartbeat, nausea, insomnia, extreme anxiety, and sore muscles. For a successful opioid detox, it is vital that patients enter a treatment program and be placed on the proper medications to help them through the opiate detox. Our physicians are able to properly evaluate the patient and offer the best outpatient opiate treatment that is safe for patients as well as comfortable.

Our addiction specialist will take the time to create the best opiate addiction treatment plan that is optimal for the patient and their long-term success. These individualized plans are designed to increase the probability that the rapid detox a patient endures will last long term.

There are many different medications available; however, suboxone has a record for being successful in outpatient addiction treatment.

What is the best treatment for opioid use disorder?
Suboxone for Opioid Treatment
Treatment of opioid addiction is often a difficult process. Suboxone remains one of the best treatments for opioid addiction. Suboxone’s active ingredients are Buprenorphine and Naloxone. Suboxone is an antagonist for pain receptors and thus binds to opioid receptors in the brain and blocks the opioid receptors. As Suboxone induces this physical process, it also prevents the usual opioid withdrawal feelings from occurring. Although patients will receive counseling and undergo further evaluation to improve the likelihood of staying sober, Suboxone may be prescribed beyond the initial opioid detox. The dosage of Suboxone will be reduced slowly over time to ensure a successful treatment with low risk of relapse. A patient’s opiate use and duration as well as their progress will determine the duration of the Suboxone prescription.
Suboxone also is less habit forming than methadone and comes in two forms. It comes as tablets as well as sublingual films and has a lower potential for misuse.
Why are opioids so addicting?
Many times people who start taking opioids do so on an occasional use. Over time people can become addicted and dependent on the opioids they are taking due to its addictive nature. Opioids bind to receptors in the brain and over time physical dependence develops and one needs to continue to take the opioids to feel well.
What is opioid withdrawal?
Opioid withdrawal occurs when someone who is physiologically dependent on the use of opioids reduces the amount of opioid that they are taking or abruptly stops the use. Symptoms and signs of withdrawal include drug craving, restlessness or anxiety, gastrointestinal symptoms, sweating, cold chills, rapid heart rate and more.
