Opioid addiction is an epidemic in the United States. Opioids are highly addictive, and past practices of overprescribing these medications have led many to develop opioid use disorders. However, Virtues offers an outpatient opioid addiction treatment program that can help.

Do You Need Help for an Opioid Addiction?

virtues behavioral health opioid rehab los angelesWhile the use of illicit opioids like heroin can be a clear sign that an individual is struggling with addiction, it can be more challenging to know if you need help with a prescription opioid. Opioid pain relievers can be highly effective at treating pain, but they can also be highly addictive. Medications like Oxycontin, Percocet, and Demerol all have a high potential for abuse. If you’re not sure whether you’d benefit from a drug addiction treatment program, consider the following:

  • Do you use prescription pain relievers in ways other than as prescribed, such as by taking more than the prescribed dose or by mixing them with other substances?
  • Do you experience cravings or strong urges to take opioids?
  • Do you experience withdrawal symptoms like nausea, insomnia, or headaches when you try to stop?
  • Have you relapsed after a period of time in sobriety?
  • Has your opioid use gotten in the way of responsibilities at work or at home?
  • Have your loved ones expressed concern about your use of opioids?
  • Have you continued to use opioids even in the face of negative consequences?

If you can answer “yes” to any of the above, reach out to Virtues Behavioral Health today.

What to Expect in Our Opioid Addiction Treatment Program

In our treatment center, you’ll find support from your peers in recovery, help from our experienced therapists, and connections to community resources. We don’t just help our clients get sober. Instead, we help them change their lives. Developing healthy coping skills is part of the journey to sustainable sobriety.

During treatment, you’ll identify potential triggers for relapse. Your therapists will help you learn how to either avoid these triggers completely or how to cope with them when you do encounter them.

Rebuilding healthy relationships, learning life skills, and rediscovering life free from drugs and alcohol are all part of what you can expect in our treatment center.

Our Approach to Treatment

Medication-assisted treatment is one tool that we use for clients struggling with opioid addiction. Certain medications, like Suboxone and Subutex, can relieve withdrawal symptoms and curb cravings.

While medication-assisted treatment is a foundational part of our approach to opioid addiction treatment, holistic and evidence-based therapies are also crucial parts of the recovery journey. We offer a wide range of therapies, which include:

  • Individual therapy
  • Group therapy
  • Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT)
  • Holistic therapy
  • Art therapy
  • Acceptance and commitment therapy
  • Anger management therapy
  • Couples treatment
  • Life skills training
  • Experiential therapy
  • Coping skills treatment
  • Relapse prevention therapy

Exercise and nutrition are also important pieces of our approach to treatment. Exercise can be a way to cope with stress and negative emotions. Getting your heart rate up can release endorphins and can help you cope with triggers for relapse without turning to opioids. And since addiction can damage your physical health, proper nutrition is key to helping you heal.
