What Opioid Addiction Treatment Options Are There?

Opioid addiction treatment will most likely include detox, medication-assisted therapy, and psychedelic-assisted therapy. Treatment can occur in either an inpatient or outpatient setting, depending on the individual's treatment need.

Individual, family, and group therapy, informational sessions or seminars, drug and alcohol education, and medical care are all possible components of inpatient and outpatient treatment programs.

The American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) publishes guidelines for determining the intensity and duration of addiction therapy for people. The severity of addiction and withdrawal potential; co-occurring problems, such as medical, emotional, behavioral, and cognitive issues; motivation for addiction treatment; relapse risk; and the individual's living/working environment are all factors to consider.

When an individual is admitted to an inpatient or an outpatient treatment, it depends on the results of the initial assessment or the doses they have taken.

Inpatient Rehabilitation Program

Inpatient therapy provides medical and addiction treatment professionals with round-the-clock monitoring and assistance. Individuals who needs high level care, inpatient (residential) treatment is the best option. Inpatient treatment involves staying in the clinics (Suboxone clinics) during the treatment. Patients who require drug therapy and other vital parts of treatment, such as Ketamine-infusion therapy, Suboxone treatment, co-occurring mental health issues, or a history of recent relapse, can be effectively managed in these facilities.

Outpatient Rehabilitation Program

Outpatient treatment is different from inpatient treatment because it involves full-time staying at a clinic for treatment. Outpatient treatment allows patients to live and sleep at home while taking treatment daily by keeping in touch with their Suboxone doctors or telehealth.

Outpatient treatment allows people to keep up with their duties at home, work, or school. The time commitment varies depending on the treatment program chosen, but most people go to treatment one to several times each week, usually on weekends or evenings.
