OPIOD ADDICTION TREATMENT
Achieve long-term sobriety with the necessary support.
Opioids, which include prescription pain medicine as well as illegal drugs like heroin, produce a range of effects. One of the most common effects, though, is pain relief. As a result, legal opioids are often prescribed to patients recovering from accidents or surgical procedures.
While these drugs can provide patients with several benefits when they’re prescribed by a doctor and used appropriately, they can also be easy to misuse and become addicted to. In fact, a recent study found that almost two million Americans were addicted to prescription painkillers — with opioids being one of them.
Here at Synergy Recovery Services, we offer treatment for opioid addictions. If you or someone you love is struggling, we can help you break out of the cycle of opioid use and withdrawal symptoms with our comprehensive, custom treatment plans.
Opioids are extremely addicting because they bind to the opioid receptors in the body. Over time, tolerance develops and the body needs more and more of the drug to produce the same results. In this way, tolerance can lead to addiction. While the symptoms can vary, there are a few common signs of opioid addiction:
A back injury is what led Paul to becoming addicted to painkillers. After detoxification with Suboxone (buprenorphine) and intensive outpatient counseling at Synergy Recovery he was able to recover from his painkiller addiction.
At Synergy Recovery Services, we foster a nonjudgemental, discreet treatment atmosphere for those struggling with opioid addictions. When you enter our outpatient center, you’ll be treated with the care and respect you deserve. Because we are outpatient, you’ll be able to come in for treatment and then leave at night. You can still live your life at home, surrounded by friends and family, while you get the care you need.
Unlike many opioid rehab centers in Bakersfield, California, we use a combination of both medication and counseling. Medications, such as Vivitrol or Suboxone, help to treat the debilitating symptoms of withdrawal and prevent a relapse. Meanwhile, counseling helps to identify and treat the causes of your opioid addiction, identify triggers and develop coping mechanisms. By implementing new lifestyle changes, you can increase your chances of recovery. Our counseling services also include psychosocial counseling — both individual and in group settings.
We customize our treatment approach to each patient for the best results.
If you’ve been struggling with an opioid addiction, know that there is hope. Recovery is an ongoing process. We can help get you started on this journey through our comprehensive medication-assisted addiction treatment programs that look after your mind, body and spirit.
Our team of specialists is trained, experienced and certified. Dr. Jan Trobisch, who is our medical director, is board-certified in addiction medicine. He’s worked extensively with patients who are addicted to opioids. Our programs are effective for treating withdrawals as well as preventing relapse.
