Opioid Rehab Santa Clarita

The Best Opioid Rehab Center in Santa Clarita

Opioid drugs are robust, synthetic, or naturally derived substances that are given to relieve pain. They can be found in pill and liquid form, and when abused, are often snorted, smoked, and injected recreationally, producing a blissful high or intense feeling of calm. This is caused by the drug altering your brain’s natural chemistry, binding to the receptors that react to pain and emotions, and lowering your heart rate and breathing rate. These drugs can quickly cause a tolerance build-up, and physical dependence as the natural pathways to dopamine receptors and other areas of the nervous system are physically altered to depend on opioids to work, so you need the drug to feel normal. When this occurs, our opioid rehab in Santa Clarita can help patients find the solutions to their dependence.

Some of the more common opioids people become addicted to include:

  • Fentanyl
  • Heroin
  • Vicodin
  • Hydrocodone
  • Morphine
  • Oxycodone
  • Codeine
  • Diphenoxylate

Deciding to go to rehab for opioid use is a big deal, but it does not have to be intimidating or anything except treatment and healing. You have already made the most significant step by doing your research: admitting you may need help. Detoxing and rehabilitating from an addiction is not something to be ashamed of; it is the bravest thing you can do. We will help you, so you don’t have to deal with your addiction alone.

How to Know If You are Addicted to Opioids

Opioid drugs can be highly addictive. If you show the following signs of addiction, entering a professional rehab program may be time:

  • Having an increasing tolerance to the drugs, needing more to get the same effect.
  • Withdrawal symptoms with severe cravings when you do not have the drugs on hand.
  • Acting in ways you usually would not for drugs or money, regardless of consequences, like risky sex, stealing, lying, or driving while high.
  • Keeping stashes of drugs and paraphernalia around.
  • Having a preoccupation with planning for, using, and recovering from opioids.
  • Missing or performing poorly at work, school, or other responsibilities because of drug use.
  • Legal troubles because of drug use.
  • Continuing to use opioids even when it causes money or relationship issues.

How Is Opioid Addiction Treated?

We have several distinct phases in each patient’s opioid drug addiction treatment program. These are:

  • Intake: we get to know about your level of addiction and your health through a medical screening, a psychological exam, and an in-depth interview. This is to help decide on the type of program and therapies that will most benefit you in your recovery.
  • Detox: our medical team, along with counselors and therapists, will supervise and assist you as you go through your detox. Prescription medications may be provided to help with any physical pain, restlessness, and drug cravings, and you will have full emotional support as the opioids leave your system. We will make sure you are safe, with 24-hour staff available if you need them.’
  • Rehab: After detox is over, you will move into rehab, where you will work alongside our experts to get to the root of your addiction, work on yourself and learn new recovery skills you can use for the rest of your life.
  • Aftercare: Once your time in rehab is over, you will have the option of outpatient treatment and aftercare programs. These are customized to your needs, and the intensity and frequency of treatments can evolve as your needs change over time.

Opioid Detox: The First Step Towards Recovery

After your intake procedures are finished, you will move into a detox program customized to best suit your needs, considering your health, level of addiction, budget, beliefs, and goals for the future.

Detoxing before rehab is essential because you will need to have a clear head without focusing on getting your next fix or feeling withdrawal symptoms without it. Psychologically, you will feel more ready to take in information and move on into a new phase of your life once the drugs are out of your body. Any co-occurring conditions you may have will be easier to treat without the opioids masking your symptoms.

You will live in the detox center, with 24-hour clinical staff available. Medications and therapy will be provided in our Medically Assisted Treatment (MAT) detox program to help you with withdrawal symptoms like:

  • Muscle aches
  • Anxiety
  • Restlessness/uncontrollable leg movements
  • Digestive issues
  • Abdominal cramping
  • Sleep problems
  • Rapid heart rate
  • High blood pressure
  • Severe drug cravings

Opioid Rehab: The Next Step in Recovery

You will live in our rehab center and we will work alongside you to figure out what type of program will best benefit you. Entering inpatient rehab is vital so you can step outside your everyday life, away from the people, the environment, and other triggers for your drug use, to focus on your own healing.

Through a customized program of group and one-on-one therapy, education, counseling, and other treatments, our expert team can help you change your mindset, change your behaviors, and become the drug-free person you want to be, providing coping tools that will last a lifetime. The longer you stay in rehab, the better your chance is for long-term recovery, so we will always encourage our patients to remain in our care for as long as necessary.

Aftercare for Opioid Addiction: A Lifelong Recovery

After inpatient rehab, we can move you into outpatient care. In these programs, you will still receive therapy, case management, and 12-step integration, with full support from our rehab center. Still, you can live outside the rehab center and take care of personal responsibilities or go to work. Our outpatient programs are flexible and customizable, with two main facets available:

  • Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP): you live outside of our facility but return for up to seven days a week for entire days.
  • Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP): a flexible, tailored program that can be customized to fit your schedule and can change in frequency as your needs evolve so you can schedule your therapy, groups, and other appointments to best suit your life.

When you have been in our outpatient therapy for long enough that you feel you have fully transitioned into your life, we offer a less-intensive aftercare program where you can schedule therapy appointments when you want. We help you remain connected to all the support programs, psychiatric and medical care, and sober community you need, but you have all the freedom you need to live a normal, sober life.

How to Find the Right Opioid Rehab Center

When looking for an opioid rehab in Santa Clarita, you will want to find out if:

  • They offer a medical detox program that integrates prescription medications, psychiatric care, and spiritual wellness into one, whole-patient approach.
  • They provide mental health services and dual diagnosis treatments.
  • They have 24-hour clinical care available as you go through detox to ensure you remain safe.
  • They have a plan for you after you leave detox, like inpatient and outpatient care provided in the same facility.
  • Their team is highly trained and genuinely cares about their job and helping you as an individual.

MAT for Opioid Addiction

For opioid addiction, it is not a good idea to detox at home, and you will have a very high chance of relapsing. Your withdrawal symptoms may elevate to a level you can no longer tolerate and could become unsafe, causing you to return to drug use or creating complex medical issues.

A Medically Assisted Treatment (MAT) program is the safest and most effective means of detoxing. In a MAT program, a slow taper off the opioids will be supplemented with maintenance doses of prescription medications, including Methadone, Buprenorphine/Naloxone, or Naltrexone, to help you deal with the cravings, restlessness, and pain that comes with the detox.

MAT is an integrated treatment that combines these FDA-approved medications with behavioral therapy, counseling, and dual diagnosis treatments, so any trauma, anxiety, or co-occurring mental health issues are being treated at the same time in a whole-patient approach.
