Understanding Opana Abuse

Understanding Opana Abuse Recovery

An opioid agonist classified by the Drug Enforcement Administration as a Schedule II controlled substance that contains oxymorphone is Opana. This medication is one that is prescribed by doctors and given to sufferers of moderate to severe pain. Often given to individuals who have not responded to other types of painkillers, Opana is a strong drug that has the capacity to be addictive. Should an individual develop an addiction to Opana after abusing it, it is likely that that person will have a hard time resisting urges and cravings for continued use of this narcotic. Should a person abruptly stop his or her abuse of Opana, withdrawal symptoms will set in and can be quite uncomfortable to the individual. These symptoms, which include feeling restless or anxious, stomach cramping, mood changes, and sometimes pain, are often enough of a reason to resume the abuse of this substance. However, if a person wishes to combat his or her addiction to Opana, medication-assisted treatment is one of the most effective and safest treatment options available today.

Medication-assisted treatment is a form of treatment that involves the use of certain medications that are designed keep withdrawal, cravings, and the harmful effects of opioids at bay so that the individual addicted to the substance can work on recovery. When this type of treatment is received at the same as other therapeutic interventions, such as individual and group therapy, those addicted to opioids like Opana can come to know a life that is not hindered due to the abuse of a prescription painkiller.

Types of Treatment Offered

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

Indiana Comprehensive Treatment Centers are a network of outpatient providers that offer an array of medically supervised medication-assisted treatment options for those who wish to overcome an addiction to or dependence upon opioids, such as Opana. Men and women, aged 18 and older, who have been abusing Opana or other opioids for one year or more can partake in our services. Our experienced and professional staff is comprised of doctors, nurses, and counselors who work with clients to determine the most appropriate dosage of any medication prescribed and any additional therapeutic interventions that will further the recovery process.

The medications and therapeutic interventions that could be part of a client’s treatment can include the following:

Methadone: A medication that prevents cravings and the withdrawal symptoms that are known to occur after a person ceases his or her use of Opana is methadone. Those prescribed methadone will not experience the high that occurs when a person consumes a prescription painkiller, as methadone is an opioid agonist. The dosage of this medication, which is taken daily, is determined based on each client’s needs and will likely be decreased over time in order to wean the individual off of it so that true sobriety can be achieved.      

Suboxone: Containing buprenorphine and naloxone, Suboxone reduces cravings and withdrawal symptoms. Unlike other medication-assisted treatments, this medication can also trigger symptoms of withdrawal should an individual attempt to abuse an opioid, such as Opana, while receiving this type of medication-assisted treatment. Suboxone is typically consumed daily and the dosage will be determined based on the treatment needs of the individual.

Subutex: Comprised of buprenorphine as the active ingredient, Subutex lessens cravings and diminishes withdrawal symptoms by blocking the harmful effects of Opana and other opioids within an individual’s brain. Subutex is classified as a partial opioid agonist-antagonist, meaning the effects of consuming an opioid are blocked, yet the withdrawal symptoms are decreased in order to allow a person to work on his or her recovery. Daily consumption of this medication is part of this type of treatment and the amount taken each day is recommended by one of our highly-qualified doctors.

Vivitrol: A non-narcotic, non-addictive medication-assisted treatment option is Vivitrol. This medication is one that is injected into an individual to reduce cravings for Opana and other opioids. Naltrexone is the active ingredient and this treatment option is one that is typically administered once per month.  

Individual and group therapy: In order to enhance the effectiveness of the medication-assisted treatments we offer, Indiana Comprehensive Treatment Centers incorporate individual and group therapy sessions into the treatments available. Individual therapy sessions occur one-on-one with a counselor and can be a time when clients process their feelings and emotions with regards to their own recovery. Group therapy sessions are also conducted by counselors and can feature a wide range of topics covered. Other clients participate in group therapy sessions so that the men and women receiving treatment at our centers can feel a strong sense of support and encouragement from others who have endured similar struggles.

Why Consider Treatment

Why Consider Indiana Comprehensive Treatment Centers for Opana Abuse

In addition to the increased risk for interaction with the legal system, job loss, demise of meaningful relationships, and financial difficulties, an Opana addiction can create numerous adversities in a person’s life. A person with an addiction to Opana is likely to experience an overall decline in his or her mental health. The mind of a person addicted to any given substance often becomes fixated on his or her use of the drug, ways to attain more of the drug, and methods for concealing his or her drug use from friends, family members, and sometimes law enforcement or other entities in a position of power or authority. Additionally, if the individual addicted to Opana is suffering from a mental health condition or conditions, any existing symptoms could become worse. In regards to a person’s physical health, Opana abuse can wreak havoc on the healthy functioning an individual’s body. Not only are abusers of this medication at an ever-present risk for overdose should an addiction of this kind become severe, but the overconsumption of Opana can lead to vital organ damage that could be irreversible. What is important for individuals addicted to Opana to know, however, is that there is effective treatment available that can help defeat this life-threatening chemical dependency concern.
