Opioid Treatment Program: What to Expect at Rising Phoenix

Are you considering an opioid treatment program? Opioid addiction is a major problem today, affecting millions of people each year. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, more than 2 million Americans misuse opioids annually. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that nearly 70% of all drug overdose deaths in 2019 involved opioids. This addiction can ruin lives and break apart families.

Seeking professional treatment is vital for recovery. Trying to quit on your own is difficult and often leads to relapse. Professional programs provide the support and tools needed for lasting sobriety.

At Rising Phoenix Wellness Center, we offer a compassionate, holistic approach. Our goal is to heal the mind, body, and spirit. We understand the challenges of addiction and are here to help every step of the way.

In the next section, we’ll explore the signs of opioid addiction and how to recognize them.

Understanding Opioid Addiction

Understanding opioid addiction is key to finding the right treatment. This section will explain what opioids are and how addiction happens.

Definitions and Differences Between Opiates and Opioids

Opiates and opioids are often confused. Opiates are naturally derived from the poppy plant. Examples include opium, morphine, and codeine. Opioids are partially synthetic (chemically created) drugs. Common opioids include OxyContin, hydrocodone, and fentanyl.

Understanding Addiction As a Disease, Not A Choice

Addiction is a disease, not a choice. It changes the brain’s chemistry and makes quitting very hard. People with addiction need medical help and support.

Common Pathways to Addiction

Many people start using opioids through prescription medications. These drugs are often given for pain after surgery or an injury. Recreational use is another common pathway. Both can lead to addiction quickly.

Now, we will discuss the signs of opioid addiction and what to watch for.

Signs of Opioid Addiction

Recognizing the signs of opioid addiction is crucial for getting help early. This section will cover the physical and behavioral indicators of addiction.

Physical and Behavioral Indicators of Addiction

Opioid addiction affects both the body and behavior. Some common signs include the inability to control use and uncontrollable cravings. People may feel drowsy and have changes in their sleep habits. They might also lose weight and show flu-like symptoms. Decreased libido and a lack of hygiene are also common.

Changes in exercise habits and isolation from family and friends can occur. Some individuals may start stealing or face new financial difficulties. Recognizing these signs early can make a big difference in getting timely help.

Importance of Early Intervention 

According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), early intervention is key to successful treatment. The National Institute on Drug Abuse also highlights the importance of early recognition and treatment to prevent the worsening of addiction.

Next, we’ll examine how Rising Phoenix Wellness Center approaches opioid addiction treatment.
