Substance Abuse: Opioids
Welcome to Diamond Recovery Center, a leading provider of addiction treatment and support services for individuals struggling with substance abuse. Our mission is to provide comprehensive and personalized care to those in need, helping them overcome addiction and achieve long-term recovery. Allow us to provide you with information about Opioids.
WHAT are Opioids?
Opioids are a class of drugs that include prescription painkillers such as oxycodone, hydrocodone, and fentanyl, as well as illegal drugs such as heroin. Opioids are highly addictive and can cause physical and psychological dependence in a short amount of time. Opioid addiction has become a national crisis in the United States, with more than 130 people dying daily from opioid-related overdoses.
Opioids and opiates are both drugs that act on the nervous system to relieve pain, but the main difference between them is their origin. Opiates are derived from opium poppy plants, while opioids are synthetic or partially synthetic drugs that are designed to mimic the effects of opiates.
how we treat opioids abuse?
At Diamond Recovery Center, we understand the devastating impact that opioid addiction can have on individuals and their families. That’s why we offer a range of evidence-based treatments and therapies that are tailored to each individual’s unique needs and circumstances. Our goal is to provide a supportive and nurturing environment where our clients can heal and begin to rebuild their lives.
One of the key components of our opioid addiction treatment program is medication-assisted treatment (MAT). MAT uses medications such as methadone, buprenorphine, and naltrexone to help ease withdrawal symptoms and reduce cravings for opioids. MAT has been shown to be highly effective in helping individuals achieve and maintain sobriety.
In addition to MAT, we offer a range of behavioral therapies that are designed to help individuals address the underlying issues that contribute to addiction. Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is a popular form of therapy that helps individuals identify negative thought patterns and behaviors and replace them with positive ones. Family therapy is also an important part of our program, as it helps individuals rebuild relationships with loved ones and develop a support system for recovery.
At Diamond Recovery Center, we believe that addiction is a disease, not a moral failing. We treat our clients with compassion, respect, and dignity and provide a safe and supportive environment where they can begin to heal. Our goal is to help our clients achieve long-term recovery and live healthy and fulfilling lives.
