Opiate Treatment

Opiate Addiction Treatment at Banyan Philadelphia

Opiates are prescription medications that are commonly prescribed for severe pain management. These drugs produce a very intense euphoria, and they have the potential to be very addictive for users. Many people may feel that an opiate addiction is nothing too serious because doctors prescribe these medications; however, when people misuse these drugs, a severe addiction can form. Opiates include oxycodone, morphine, hydrocodone, and methadone, to name a few. Just because they are legal medications does not mean they are not extremely powerful and dangerous if misused. Effective treatment is necessary for individuals who are addicted to opiates and it’s important to address the addiction before it’s too late. Our drug rehab in Philadelphia provides customized opiate addiction treatment for all who suffer, and we are here to guide the recovery journey.

Opioid Epidemic

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the number of drug overdose deaths has never been higher. 66% of deaths in 2016 involved opioids. We are currently experiencing an opioid epidemic in this country, and so many people are being affected by the high overdose rates. Over 48 million Americans have used illicit drugs or misused prescription drugs.1

How to Treat an Opiate Addiction

Recovery from opiates starts with medical and professional treatment to safely and comfortably detox from the drug. It is crucial that detox from opiates is medically supervised because it is one of the most dangerous drugs to detox from. Due to uncomfortable and painful withdrawal symptoms, an individual must be monitored by professionals to achieve a successful outcome. After a medically monitored detox protocol is completed and the patient has been safely weaned off of all addictive substances, an individualized treatment plan is essential to begin treating the root causes of drug use and addiction.
