Understanding Painkiller Abuse

Understanding Painkiller Abuse Recovery

Because prescription painkillers are both powerful and prevalent, abuse of and addiction to these drugs has become sadly common. Though they can be both safe and effective when used as medically directed, prescription painkillers can pose significant dangers when abused and attempting to end a person’s dependence upon prescription painkillers can often require professional help. One common effective means of overcoming a prescription painkiller addiction is medication-assisted treatment, which combines a medical component and a therapeutic component into a comprehensive plan to address the physical and emotional facets of addiction.

Indiana Comprehensive Treatment Centers have helped thousands of individuals escape their dependence upon prescription painkillers. At these centers, clients can receive medication that will allow them to stop abusing painkillers without experiencing either strong drug cravings or the onset of painful withdrawal symptoms. At the same time, they can participate in individual and group counseling sessions that will provide solutions for the underlying issues that either led to or were caused by their addictive behaviors.

Types of Treatment Offered

Types of Treatment Offered for Painkiller Abuse at Indiana Comprehensive Treatment Centers

Treatment at an Indiana Comprehensive Treatment Center is an outpatient experience that can be customized to meet the unique needs and goals of each client. Adult men and women, aged 18 and above, who enroll in one of these programs work with doctors, nurses, and counselors to develop personalized treatment plans that may include one or more of the following medical and therapeutic components:

Methadone: Methadone is the most commonly used medication in programs that offer medication-assisted treatment for addiction to painkillers and other opiates. As an opioid agonist, methadone interacts with the brain receptors that are triggered when a person abuses a prescription painkiller. Methadone occupies these receptors without creating the disorienting high that is associated with recreational substance abuse, which allows clients to function in a non-impaired manner without experiencing painful withdrawal symptoms. Methadone has been used in opiate addiction treatment for decades, and has proved to be both safe and effective when used as directed under the supervision of a qualified medical expert.     

Suboxone: Suboxone was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use in opiate addiction treatment programs in 2002. Suboxone contains buprenorphine, which, like methadone, suppresses cravings and prevents the onset of withdrawal symptoms. Suboxone also contains a substance called Naloxone, which prevents abuse and overdose. Thus, after they have met certain treatment goals, clients who use Suboxone may be allowed to take home several days-worth of the medication, which means they do not have to come to the clinic for treatment every day, as is required of methadone clients.

Subutex: Like Suboxone, Subutex forestalls drug cravings and withdrawal symptoms due to the presence of buprenorphine. However, Subutex does not contain Naloxone, so clients are usually required to visit the treatment center each day in order to get their daily dose. In many medication-assisted treatment programs, clients initially receive Subutex, and then transition to Suboxone for long-term maintenance.

Vivitrol: Unlike methadone, Suboxone, and Subutex, which are all taken via daily oral doses, Vivitrol is a longer-lasting medication that is administered once per month via injection. The primary active ingredient in Vivitrol is naltrexone hydrochloride, which prevents clients from experiencing drug cravings and also suppresses painful symptoms of opioid withdrawal.

Individual and group therapy: Because painkiller addiction involves physical, psychological, and behavioral issues, effective treatment must address all of these concerns. With medication allowing them to function normally without being either intoxicated or in withdrawal, clients have the mental clarity to participate in one-on-one sessions with a counselor who can help them work through all of the problems that either contributed to or were made worse by their painkiller abuse. At Indiana Comprehensive Treatment Centers, individual therapy on a regular basis is a core component of treatment.

Group therapy complements individual therapy by allowing clients to learn from the experiences of others who are in similar situations, while also addressing interpersonal issues that may be associated with their painkiller abuse. At Indiana Comprehensive Treatment Centers, group therapy sessions are led by trained and experienced counselors who are skilled in providing a safe and productive forum in which clients can address sensitive topics, receive encouragement from other participants, and serve as sources of support for others in need.

Why Consider Treatment

Why Consider Indiana Comprehensive Treatment Centers for Painkiller Abuse

It’s no exaggeration to note that prescription painkiller abuse can be not only dangerous, but deadly. As painkiller abuse becomes more prevalent in the United States, so too have emergency room visits and deaths associated with illicit use of these powerful substances.

Prescription painkiller abuse is associated with organ damage and failure, respiratory problems, brain damage, seizures, paranoia, depression, and a host of other physical and mental health issues. Unfortunately, one of the fundamental symptoms of addiction is that the addicted individual is powerless to stop his or her substance abuse, even after experiencing negative consequences as a direct result of that abuse. Without effective professional intervention, many painkiller addicts will continue their self-defeating behaviors even after suffering damage to their health, relationships, employment, finances, and legal status.

The good news is that professional help is not only available, but effective. At Indiana Comprehensive Treatment Centers, experienced and dedicated experts are ready to help you or your loved one overcome an addiction to painkillers and resume a healthier and much more promising drug-free life.
