How Opioid Addiction Develops
Opioids are made from the opium poppy plant and are often used to relieve pain. They work by binding to opioid receptors in the brain and nervous system. For those with chronic pain, opioid pain relievers can be essential to quality of life. However, opioids are also highly addictive.
People can develop opioid addiction in a number of ways. Some people become addicted after being prescribed opioid pain relievers for a medical condition. Others may start using opioids recreationally, either out of curiosity or to self-medicate for another issue, such as anxiety or depression.
Once someone starts using opioids, they can develop tolerance, meaning they need to use more of the drug to achieve the same effect. As tolerance builds, those who use this substance may start to experience withdrawal symptoms when they try to quit.
Effective Treatment for Opioid Addiction
There are a number of treatment options available for opioid addiction. The most effective treatment programs are those that are tailored to the individual. This means taking into account the person’s unique circumstances, history, and needs.
At Roaring Brook Recovery, we offer a customized opioid addiction treatment program. Some participants in our program have experienced trauma in the past that may be contributing to their opioid use. Others may have co-occurring mental health concerns that need to be addressed. Our program is designed to meet the unique needs of each person who comes to us for help.
We also offer a number of different therapy modalities in our opioid rehab. These include:
- Trauma therapy – This therapy modality can help those who have experienced trauma in the past to process their experiences and begin to heal.
- Neurofeedback therapy – This therapy uses brainwaves to help people learn how to self-regulate their emotions.
- Experiential therapy – This type of therapy uses activities such as art, music, and movement to help people process their emotions and experiences.
During therapy sessions, participants build the healthy coping skills they need to manage opioid cravings and triggers. They also work on developing a support system and making positive changes in their lives. Through this holistic approach to addiction treatment, lasting change is possible.
