Some of the most addictive drugs in the world are not sold in the streets. Instead, they are prescribed by doctors every day. Sadly, millions of people suffer from a dependence on these drugs and continue using them regardless of the consequences. If you are struggling with an addiction to opiates, a painkiller addiction treatment program is available to help.
Blueprint Recovery offers a comprehensive treatment program for drug addiction that helps you through each stage of recovery. We provide detox, rehab, and aftercare in the scope of outpatient treatment. To find out more about our painkiller addiction treatment program in NH, contact Blueprint Recovery Center today.
Why Are Painkillers So Addictive?
Patients who might otherwise say no to illicit drugs off the streets can easily get hooked on painkillers. There are several reasons for this. First, painkillers are designed to be taken regularly, causing the patient to form a habit. Second, painkillers are perceived as safe and non-addictive since they are prescribed by a doctor.
Perhaps the biggest reason why painkillers are addictive is because of the way they alter brain activity. In addition to blocking pain signals to the brain, painkillers produce a euphoric feeling that makes the user feel good and relax. This euphoric feeling is addictive, as the brain attaches itself to the drug.
Our Painkiller Addiction Treatment Services
Just as your brain becomes attached to painkillers, it is possible for your brain to detach from the addiction. Our painkiller addiction treatment program in NH is designed to take you through each step of recovery until you are free from dependency on the drugs. Some of our treatments include:
Primary care includes evidence-based treatment through individual and group therapy. The types of therapy you may engage in include:
- Cognitive-behavioral therapy
- Dialectical behavior therapy
- Family therapy program
- Individual therapy program
Holistic care continues to grow in popularity because it promotes wellness in the mind, body, and spirit. Addiction therapy programs around individual and group activities such as:
- Chiropractic care
- Massage therapy
- Meditation and mindfulness
- Nutrition therapy
- Fitness therapy
When combined with our primary care, holistic therapy is highly effective and helps you grow in all areas of your life.
Your level of care depends on the severity of your addiction and how much you can commit to your treatment. Outpatient treatment allows patients to leave the center and still live at home, giving them a level of freedom they would not have in residential.
Getting back to the daily routine after rehab can be challenging for anyone. This is especially true if part of your daily routine is taking your painkiller. We offer aftercare as a way to help you transition back into your normal life. Aftercare may include support groups, continued therapy, sober living house, or an alumni program.
Dual Diagnosis for Co-Occurring Disorders
One of the reasons why people relapse after rehab is because the root of their addiction is not addressed and treated. Many times, the root of the addiction is a mental health issue such as anxiety, depression, PTSD, or borderline personality disorder. When these are overlooked, treatment is only half as effective.
Through a dual diagnosis, a treatment specialist can help you overcome your addiction and manage the symptoms of your mental disorder at the same time. It is a more comprehensive treatment that addresses the challenges of both conditions, instead of focusing exclusively on addiction.
