Our Opioid Treatment Programs

Confronting Opioid Addiction

For those looking for opioid treatment there are several different types of treatment that can help. The type of opioid treatment that you or your loved one may need will depend on their specific situation.

During these types of opioid treatment programs, clients will go through many different therapies to help them with their substance use disorders.

What is Opioid Treatment?

Opioid treatment refers to the efforts made by clients and addiction specialists to help people stop abusing prescription drugs, heroin, or other opioids. Typically people think of opioid treatment as a stand-alone building dispensing anti-addiction medication to people. However, it is far more comprehensive than that, with some clients doing as described, but the most successful also partaking in inpatient rehab, behavioral therapy, alternative therapies, and more.

Most Common Opioid Treatment Programs

Detox is the first step in treating opioid and drug addiction, but it is a very important one. During the detoxification process, medical professionals monitor clients as they go through the initial phase of withdrawal. Clients typically stay in detox for five days, according to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration.

Once detox is complete, many clients will transfer to inpatient treatment. This can be conducted in a hospital or residential setting. Clients typically stay in treatment for 15-30 days, but it often fluctuates based on what insurance will approve.

During inpatient treatment clients learn more about the processes of addiction and strategies to stay sober. Inpatient treatment also allows clients to be isolated and protected from outside influences that may cause them to use again.

Intensive outpatient treatment has a similar care plan as inpatient but is not as comprehensive nor does it offer 24/7 supervision. While IOP programs are effective, it is still recommended that clients first go through an inpatient program to help them get used to sobriety in a more controlled setting.

Along with IOP programs, support groups are a great resource to provide clients with access to addiction professionals as well as other clients that can assist them with their sobriety. Support groups, like Narcotics Anonymous are valuable and can help clients commit to sobriety.

Effective Opioid Therapies

Icon For Biofeedback As A Treatment Therapy


Biofeedback is an experiential treatment where clients are exposed to stimuli that causes urges to use while heart rate, skin temperature, and more are monitored. A clinician then teaches the client how to control their responses and overcome cravings.

Icon For Motivational Interviewing Therapy, An Opioid Treatment Option


Motivational interviewing is 1-on-1 counseling where therapists help clients overcome the denial or apathy surrounding substance abuse and gain the confidence needed to change their life. This is a form of behavioral therapy common in addiction treatment.

Behavioral Therapy

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is one of the most commonly used evidence-based addiction treatments. It involves a therapist learning the personal stimuli causing the client to use and helping them “rewire” their response.

Medication-Assisted Treatment

While many treatment centers will offer behavioral, experiential, and alternative addiction treatments, some centers will also offer medication-assisted treatment (MAT).

MAT was originally designed specifically as an opioid treatment to help people safely stop using opioids and get back to normal life. The goal of MAT is to help clients avoid relapse and taper off the treatment in the coming weeks or months. Because opioids alter brain chemistry, it can be difficult to remain sober on your own, thus the inception of MAT.

What is MAT Opioid Treatment?

MAT opioid treatment is considered one of the most effective methods of achieving long-term sobriety following opioid abuse. Medication-Assisted Treatment is the combination of FDA-approved medications and regular behavioral therapy. It allows clients to overcome withdrawal symptoms and cravings while confronting the root cause of their addiction in therapy and remain in treatment until they are ready to maintain their sobriety.

3 Most Common Opioid Treatment Medications

Naltrexone(Vivitrol) Chemical Signature A Form Of Mat Opioid Treatment


Naltrexone blocks the opioid receptors in the body preventing people from feeling euphoria if they use opioids. This helps people overcome cravings and reduces relapse.

Studies have shown people who take Vivitrol report 55% less cravings.

Burprenorphine Naloxone (Suboxone) Chemical Signature A Form Of Mat Opioid Treatment

Buprenorphine + Naloxone

Buprenorphine is an opioid with a “ceiling effect,” meaning euphoria will not increase even if users take more. This mitigates withdrawal symptoms, diminishes euphoria, and reduces cravings. Naloxone prevents misuse by deadening euphoria if people inject it.

Methadone (Methadose) Chemical Signature A Form Of Mat Opioid Treatment


Methadone is classified as an opioid and is effective in reducing cravings and withdrawal symptoms. Unlike Buprenorphine, it does not have a ceiling effect, and can be misused.

It is important to ensure that masters-level clinicians are working with you or your loved one. Many clinicians have licenses in specific forms of therapies or around specific diagnoses which can also guide you on where to receive treatment. For the facility, look for a Gold Rating from the Joint Commission (the highest form of accreditation in the industry).

Therapist Going Through Research Paperwork For Evidence Based Care

When looking for a treatment center, be sure that the facility is utilizing evidence-based treatment modalities that are proven to work. For example, if they are not using MAT or certain therapy programs, such as CBT, it is a red flag that they are not using all the resources at hand to help each individual client.
