Opiate Rehab

Opiate Rehab at Axis Treatment West

The dictionary defines an Opiate as a drug with morphine-like effects, derived from opium.  What the dictionary doesn’t say is that no matter what form they may be found in – from street heroin to prescription medication – opiates remain extremely popular with addicts across a wide range of socio-economic means.  The hard truth is, those numbers don’t seem to be dropping anytime soon.  At Axis West, we’re happy to recognize the more encouraging sign that the number of people seeking help from an opiate rehab is also on the rise.  More people may be succumbing to the addiction, but more people are fighting back as well.


Combating Opiate Addiction With Opiate Rehab

The good news is that as greater numbers of people begin to realize their problems can be treated successfully at an opiate rehab the greater chance there is that these people will actually get the help they need to recover from this insidious disease.

Many opiate rehab programs, like ours here at Axis West, will claim to be customizable, based on the medical as well as the addiction history of the client in question.  We recognize that what works for one client will not always be effective for another.  That’s why it’s so important to choose a program that has the capacity to tailor a treatment plan specifically to your needs, or the needs of your loved one.  Customization is one of the more important factors to consider when choosing an effective opiate rehab.  Because of our size, our high staff-to-client ration, and our commitment to offering a dynamic treatment plan, Axis West can promise and deliver a truly customizable program of recovery.


Making New Discoveries at Opiate Rehab

After getting clean from their opiate addiction, the opiate addict may now experience several perks with their newfound sobriety: number 1, a clear mind; number 2, a newfound capacity to confront/explore the behaviors that may have been underlying their addiction.  As they plunge more deeply into this work with a counselor or therapist, the addict has the opportunity to sift through a variety of issues, including:

–  What caused the addiction in the first place;

–  How childhood trauma may have contributed to the addiction;

–  How to control impulses to use;

–  How to avoid potentially dangerous “trigger” situations

The above represents only a portion of the psychological terrain that can be covered while in treatment at an opiate rehab.  But this is the type of work that will help an addict get clean and stay clean, while developing the skills to become a useful and productive member of society again.

The risk of doing nothing in the face of addiction is stark.  According to a recent study reported by the Center For Disease Control, Opiate addiction is leading to more overdoses than ever before (Source; http://www.cdc.gov/homeandrecreationalsafety/rxbrief/).  With statistics mounting about the lurking dangers of this addiction, if you or a loved one find yourself entangled in its grasp, it’s more important than ever to get the help you need from an opiate rehab.
