Painkiller Addiction Detoxing at Home?
If you are dependent on opioid painkillers, the place to start is with a safe and comfortable medical detox at Desert Rose Recovery’s state-of-the-art detox facility. By no means should you attempt to detox yourself at home without a doctors supervision. At best, you’ll be way less comfortable than you would be with us. At worst, it can be potentially dangerous. It’s really never a good idea. Whether you’re thinking about quitting cold turkey or trying to wean yourself off of painkillers—think again. If this was easy to do and sensible, there would be no need for painkiller detoxes in the first place. It doesn’t make a whole lot of sense to go the DIY route when you have an expert painkiller detox one phone call away, does it?
Unlike most treatment programs, we provide all of the core ASAM levels of care from beginning to end, here under one program banner. This is a crucial advantage that makes Desert Rose a different caliber of program from most South Florida rehabs. Your care begins at our 5-star opioid detox facility for your utmost comfort and safety. We believe that continuity of care is the key to an effective addiction treatment program. Discharging out of one facility and into another program can be disruptive. With our program, we see you through from day one to completion.
5-Star Alcohol and Drug Detox
At Desert Rose Recovery we know that your time is valuable and you only have a certain amount of it in treatment. We take that commitment very seriously so we make certain that all the time you spend with us is as productive and healing as possible. Another advantage of a truly integrated program like ours is that we get more time to get to know you.
Healing the mind begins with purifying the body and few facilities do this as well as Desert Rose Recovery can. Substance abuse treatment at Desert Rose Recovery begins with our 5-star drug and alcohol detox. Here you benefit from a safe and comfortable medical detox with 24-hour supervision.
Our addiction experts carefully control withdrawal discomfort with state-of-the-art medicines and substance abuse treatment therapies. Because we offer safe and comfortable medical detox as a part of our program, we are able to deliver continuity of care that many less advanced substance abuse treatment programs cannot match.
Finding Peace from Painkiller Addiction
Peace of mind comes from not only moving past the physical and chemical obstacles to quitting opioid painkillers, but by healing the mind and spirit. It might surprise you to know that upwards of 65% of the people who enter treatment for addiction discover that they have a co-occurring psychological disorder like depression. While a painkiller habit may begin innocently enough, people with undiagnosed, untreated mental health disorders may find some form of relief by “self-medicating” with painkillers or other drugs and alcohol.
This is why diagnosing any secondary conditions is key to making sobriety stick. If you don’t know exactly why you became dependent on painkillers and what your triggers are, avoiding relapse can be far more challenging. Many clients see a psychiatrist for the first time in their lives when they admit for chemical dependency treatment. One of the benefits of our fully integrated treatment model is that we get to spend time getting to know you. It means we are in a better position to diagnose and help than perhaps any medical professional you’ve ever worked with. After all, how often do you get to spend this much time being treated? At Desert Rose Recovery, we make sure that time is well-spent.
The Painkiller Addiction Crisis in America
Opioid painkiller addiction began to climb rapidly beginning in the mid-1990s. Before the medical community was fully aware of what was happening there were millions of Americans living with a painkiller addiction through no fault of their own. While awareness of pain killer addiction has increased in the past few decades the problem has far from disappeared. Physicians are much more aware of the risks of painkiller addiction than they were in the past.
However opioid painkiller medications remain one of the most effective tools in pain management. This means that people are still often exposed to the potential risk of painkiller addiction. If you found your way here looking for painkiller addiction treatment, the chances are good that you or someone you love about is living with opioid dependence. The first thing we want you to know is that this is not something to feel shame about. The truth is that millions of Americans have been in the same predicament. The second thing we want you to know is that we understand and we can help. Keep reading to learn how.
Evidence-Based Treatment for Prescription Med Addiction
At its core evidence-based treatment means using the best of what has been proven to produce results. When it’s done well, evidence-based addiction care also means responding to evidence as it appears. One example of this philosophy in action is a personalized addiction treatment plan which not only recognizes your unique needs but which adapts to those needs as they evolve and we learn more about you. For instance, during treatment for painkiller addiction a patient in a dual-diagnosis program might discover a co-occurring mental health disorder. In an evidence-based addiction program the patient’s treatment plan adapts to incorporate the needs and effects of this secondary diagnosis.
That particular element of evidence-based addiction treatment is very important. Of course, the person deserves relief from their depression or anxiety or what have you. But there is another, equally important reason for this you may not have considered. Co-occurring disorders that are not diagnosed and treated properly are of the most common reasons people slip and pick up drugs or alcohol again in an attempt to self-medicate. In summary, evidence-based treatment is informed by real life clinical examples. Perhaps even more importantly it also responds to new information as it appears and is confirmed. This modern type of care produces better outcomes and longer sustained sobriety and, at the end of the day, that is what we want for you or your loved one.
