Opioid Detox at Banyan Heartland

Opioids are powerful drugs that can rewire the brain’s reward systems, making cravings especially difficult to fight. At the Banyan Heartland Treatment Center, we offer opiate detox in Illinois to give patients the support they need to safely detox from these dangerous drugs. Some opiates are legal prescription drugs, while other opiates like heroin are illegal drugs that are typically injected. Regardless of the type of opiates you have been abusing, you need help from a professional opiate detox center in Illinois to safely get and stay sober.

What to Expect During an Opioid Detox Program

When a patient arrives at our Illinois drug rehab, they receive comprehensive evaluations to determine the nature of their addiction, their current physical and mental state, and what will be the best treatment option moving forward. It is also important to note that attempting an opiate detox at home is not advised and can result in serious medical complications in some cases.

Some services used to help patients detox from opiates include:

  • Medical monitoring of symptoms
  • Medication to mitigate withdrawal symptoms
  • Therapeutic support throughout the detox process
  • Dual diagnosis treatment as needed

The opiate detox timeline will vary from patient to patient with factors including patient age, duration of the addiction, and the number of drugs used, each affecting the severity and duration of the detox process. Most often, patients experience some withdrawal symptoms within several hours or days of their last opiate use.

Banyan Heartland’s Opiate Detox Center in Illinois

Our center offers opiate detox services for patients who need help getting and staying sober from active opioid addiction. Opiates are highly addictive, and professional detox is needed to help patients safely break free from these dangerous drugs.

Common opioid withdrawal symptoms include:

  • Nausea
  • Anxiety
  • Aches and pains
  • Vomiting
  • Abdominal pain
  • Digestive distress

If you have been taking opioids that were prescribed for a specific condition, you may experience a resurgence of the original condition’s symptoms when you stop taking the opioids. For example, if you’re abusing painkillers that were initially prescribed by a doctor or nurse to treat a chronic pain condition, stopping the abuse of these drugs by going cold turkey may result in a resurgence of the pain symptoms. We offer pain management assistance for patients affected by these drug detox effects to help patients get sober while properly managing any symptoms.

These services are intended to aid patients in overcoming the most difficult parts of withdrawal in order to better prevent a relapse. It means that they will not be left to suffer in silence or isolation. Isolation in particular is one of the most destructive elements of an addiction, and should be avoided if/when possible. Rather, a patient undergoing detox will be surrounded by trained professionals who work to exhibit compassion, empathy, and patience.

What Happens After Completing Heartland Opiate Detox?

After finishing our opiate detox program in Illinois, patients enter the next stage of treatment. For patients who are experiencing medical complications such as IV drug use infections, residential recovery programs may be necessary to treat the pressing medical problems. Additional therapies are offered during our partial hospitalization and intensive outpatient programs.

Once opioid detox is complete, the next stage of treatment will help address the underlying causes and motivations of their once-active addictions. Many people use opioids to self-medicate for mental or physical problems, and treatment must address these underlying problems to help patients stay sober for the long term. Our therapies at Banyan Heartland include mindfulness programs, CBT, DBT, motivational interviewing, and even music or art therapy programs as a part of holistic treatment for addiction.

Getting Support for Opioid Detox in Illinois

At Banyan, we support our patients throughout the entire recovery process. It begins with opioid detox paths, where patients receive support that can include therapy and medically monitored Heartland detox. Following the completion of opioid detox, patients will enter into the next stage of treatment after undergoing a medical and mental health evaluation to determine their needs. The most common steps after detox are PHP or inpatient treatment paths.
