Opiate Addiction Treatment on Long Island, NY
There are three main stages to opiate addiction treatment at our luxury opiate rehab treatment center on Long Island, NY (not far from NYC). The duration of medical treatment varies depending on your needs. However, detox typically lasts for a week, and rehab can take 30 to 90 days or longer. After that, ongoing treatment is a lifelong commitment to stay sober.
The first step in opiate addiction treatment is often detox. You have to let your body eliminate the remnants of the drug toxins before treatment progresses. This process requires that you stop using the drugs altogether. The result is withdrawal that can cause dangerous and very painful symptoms.
If your substance use disorder is severe, your detox center might use a tapering method to ease withdrawal symptoms. The doctors may give you other medications to ease symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, seizures, anxiety and depression. Although the process only takes about a week, you might feel some acute withdrawal symptoms for up to six months.
Opiate Rehab and Therapy
Enrolling in a rehab program is the second step in opiate addiction treatment. Residential and outpatient programs are the two main types of treatment. Residential care is the most successful for long-term recovery. However, outpatient care is more flexible with your schedule if you have a mild opiate use disorder.
In either case, therapy is the core element of rehab. Treatment plans typically include a mix of one-on-one, group and family therapy sessions. Therapists also use various counseling techniques to meet different needs.
Cognitive behavioral therapy is a common technique that rehab programs use. It helps you learn how to change negative feeling and thoughts to stay sober. Dialectical behavior therapy teaches stress management skills and improves your confidence. Experiential therapy is ideal if you have trouble talking about your problems.
The first six months after rehab are frequently the most difficult. Because of that, aftercare programs such as sober living are available to help you with the transition. Once you finish residential rehab, outpatient treatment could be helpful.
However, you need a plan to get ongoing support to maintain your sobriety. You could go to a private therapist or attend support group meetings. Volunteering, recreational sports and other sober activities can also keep you from feeling compelled to use opiates again.

About Opiate Withdrawal
Addiction to opioids, a class of drugs that includes heroin and prescription painkillers such as oxycodone and fentanyl, has skyrocketed in recent years across the United States. About 1.9 million people have prescription painkiller use disorder, and 435,000 are regular users of heroin, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration. Once addicted, stopping can be daunting. A body that has become used to regular infusions of a drug will start producing a cascade of physical symptoms if it is denied that drug. Symptoms include muscle aches and pains, diarrhea, shakes and vomiting. Many people who try to quit using the drugs start using again within a few hours if only to ease the pain.
