Opiate and Painkiller Abuse

People use and misuse opiates and painkillers for any number of reasons: to feel good, to find relief from mental health symptoms, to treat pain, or to socialize with their friends. And while opiate use may begin to serve a particular purpose, opiate side effects and the consequences of addiction may quickly begin to outweigh their initial benefits.

Opiate addiction isn’t a moral failing, nor is it a choice. Instead, opiate use can change the very structure of a person’s brain, making it more likely that they will use opiates again and less likely to enjoy activities outside of substance use. And when a person develops an opiate addiction, they may experience:

  • An inability to stop using opiates on their own
  • Invasive drug cravings
  • Loss of interest in hobbies or activities
  • Worsening mental health as a result of opiate use
  • Withdrawal symptoms when they stop using opiates
  • Growing tolerance for opiates, meaning they need to use more to achieve the desired effect
  • Continued opiate use despite personal consequences

These symptoms are in addition to the number of opiate side effects they may experience, including:

  • Chronic fatigue
  • Sleep difficulties
  • Sudden weight changes
  • Constipation
  • Nausea

But there is a path to opiate recovery, and you can break free from your addiction with the help of our opiate addiction treatment program in San Marcos, TX.

If you're ready to start your journey to recovery, we're here to help.

Opiate Rehab Treatment Options

Our opiate rehab leverages several evidence-based treatments and therapies to help people break free from their addictions and live healthier lives in sobriety. This includes treatments such as:

Medical Detox

Medical detox is a targeted approach to helping people overcome opiate withdrawals, which can be one of the most challenging aspects of recovery. Opiate withdrawals are intensely uncomfortable and include symptoms like:

  • Runny nose
  • Hot and cold flashes
  • Strong cravings to use opiates
  • Insomnia
  • Anxiety
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Diarrhea

At our medical detox center, these symptoms can be vastly reduced through targeted medications, helping people break through this difficult first stage of the recovery process.

Individual and Group Therapy

Multiple therapeutic techniques have been developed to help people overcome opiate abuse. Therapy focuses less on the physical aspects of addiction and more on how people think about their drug use, the behaviors that may lead to relapses, and any personal challenges that need to be overcome on the path to recovery.

In individual therapy, these topics are explored in depth with a one-on-one counselor. In group therapy, several of our patients meet together to share their experience, strength, and hope with one another. These connections help them stay the course of recovery, provide accountability, and offer an indispensable level of support.

Dual-Diagnosis Treatment

Addiction doesn’t exist in isolation. Many people living with an opiate addiction have a co-occurring mental health condition, such as anxiety, depression, or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Dual-diagnosis treatment recognizes how these conditions are connected and provides targeted treatments to help both conditions simultaneously.
