Have you sadly become addicted to opiate drugs? Do you find it difficult to navigate daily life without consuming opiate drugs? Are you worried that a loved one has developed an addiction to opiate drugs?
If you have become addicted to opiate drugs, or believe that a loved one may be struggling with an addiction, you will likely have attempted to ascertain the treatment that is readily available for those struggling with addictions to take advantage of.
Upon doing so, you may have uncovered the various withdrawal symptoms that are frequently associated with opiate detox. Like many others, you may have found yourself somewhat put off by the thought of withdrawing from opiates due to the withdrawal symptoms associated, and instead, deferred treatment.
However, in doing so, your addiction to opiate drugs may have become significantly worse. You may have now begun to encounter the various short and long-term health consequences of your addiction, and you may feel somewhat trapped in the vicious cycle of addiction.
In order to help those struggling with opiate addictions, at Ocean Recovery Centre, we have designed a rapid opiate detox.
Our Rapid Opiate Detox Programme
Here at Ocean Recovery Centre, we offer what is known as a rapid opiate detox programme to individuals struggling with the opiate addictions.
Throughout our rapid opiate detox programme, patients undergo detox under the influence of a professionally administered anaesthetic. This form of detox is based on rapid opioid detoxification (ROD) developed during the 1980s.
Unlike other forms of detoxification, our rapid opiate detox is virtually pain and withdrawal symptom-free.
How Our Rapid Opiate Detox Programme Works
Throughout our rapid opiate detox programme, opiate receptor antagonists such as Naltrexone are orally consumed by clients under anaesthesia.
When consumed, Naltrexone binds with the brain’s opiate receptors and essentially blocks out the effects that opiate drugs have on the brain. Furthermore, Naltrexone completely alleviates any cravings for opioids that may otherwise be experienced during a typical detoxification programme.
Upon waking from the anaesthesia, those that take advantage of our rapid opiate detox programme find that the detoxification process is complete.
When under anaesthesia, withdrawal symptoms take place whilst our patient’s sleep. Individuals who choose to take advantage of our rapid opiate detox do not experience any withdrawal symptoms as they come around from the anaesthesia as their body and brain will have successfully detoxed and withdrawn from the toxins administered when opiate drugs are consumed. This essentially sees patients effectively steer clear of otherwise painful withdrawal symptoms and reach the coveted detoxification goal virtually unscathed.
It should be noted that upon awakening from anaesthesia, a number of secondary withdrawal symptoms including insomnia and muscle pain, may be experienced. These secondary withdrawal symptoms are insignificant compared to the primary withdrawal symptoms and are much more manageable too.
Where Is Rapid Opiate Detox Carried Out?
Just as all of our other rehabilitation treatments are carried out at our residential centre in Blackpool, our rapid opiate detox programme is too. This ensures that our programme is administered in a safe and secure location, surrounded by medical professionals.
If you are considering taking advantage of our rapid opiate detox programme, we can assure you that you will receive around the clock care and support throughout the entirety of your programme.
What Happens Once Rapid Opiate Detox Is Complete?
As and when our rapid opiate detox programme is complete, patients typically advance onto the rehabilitation stage of our opiate treatment programmes.
Throughout rehabilitation, you will encounter various forms of therapy, that often occur in both one-to-one and group settings.
Although the therapy that you encounter will entirely depend on the severity of your opiate addiction and the ramifications that your addiction has had on your physical and psychological well-being, you are likely to be provided with the following forms of therapy;
- Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
- Bereavement Counselling
- Trauma Counselling
- Abuse Counselling
- Motivational Interviewing
- Stress Management
- NLP Counselling Therapy
- Art Therapy
- Music Therapy
- Relaxation and Sleep Management Therapy
- Low-Level Laser Therapy
Irrespective of the type of therapy that is incorporated into your rehabilitation programme, you will have the ability to overcome the psychological impact that your opiate addiction has had on you.
Working with our medical and recovery staff, you will address the factors that have caused your addiction to arise and work to develop various coping strategies that will ultimately prevent you from relapsing in the near and far future.
If you simultaneously struggle with an opiate addiction and mental health disorder such as depression or anxiety, we can also provide you with dual diagnosis treatment. Dual diagnosis treatment will ensure that you overcome your addiction and have the support you need to alleviate the thoughts and feelings that you experience on a daily basis.
What Happens After Rehab?
Upon completing a rapid opiate detox and rehabilitation programme, you will be offered 12-months of free aftercare support.
While you may believe that you do not need further support as you return home to resume your everyday life, you must take advantage of the aftercare support we provide you with. Often, individuals that do not take advantage of aftercare support, or do not receive sufficient aftercare support, are at much greater risk of relapsing within their first year of recovery.
Typically, our aftercare support comprises of weekly group therapy sessions which provide those in recovery with the chance to discuss any hurdles they have had to overcome in their recovery so far and seek support from their peers and recovery specialists.
