Opiates are generally considered to be those drugs derived from opium, all highly addictive. Most commonly abused opiates include:
In most cases opiates are prescribed by a medical professional for pain relief or related condition, but when abused are known to produce a sense of euphoria. Upon our initial clinical evaluations prior to treatment, in most cases for any type of opiate addiction, treatment will begin with our medically monitored sub-acute detoxification, allowing the patient to safely begin the withdrawal process.
Opiate addiction is often linked to co-occurring mood disorders including anxiety and depression, or in some cases other addictions. As part of the Beacon HouseSM commitment of treating the whole person, our team of professionals will help to identify and treat these underlying issues.
Beacon House opiate addiction treatment may be delivered for clients as inpatients, outpatients, or in extended care. All our programs also include experiential programs to help reintroduce clients to “real life” without alcohol, as well as Aftercare, and our alumni community.
