Safe, Comfortable Detox

Because morphine addiction is tenacious, medically-supervised detox is an essential first step to recovery. Potentially intense withdrawal symptoms can be minimized, through carefully controlled withdrawal procedures.Once your condition has stabilized, you’ll undergo diagnostic testing and assessment before moving on to formal addiction treatment.

Individual Treatment Plans

Your comprehensive recovery plan at Alta Mira will include intensive individual, group, and family therapy. You’ll spend 30-90 days immersed in a healing-centered environment, where your efforts to change your behavior and lifestyle will receive empathic, unconditional support. If co-occurring mental health conditions have been diagnosed, they will be thoroughly addressed during the course of your treatment program.

Comprehensive Continuing Care

Your overall health and welfare will remain our primary concern. Once your formal treatment program ends, we’ll help you develop a comprehensive aftercare plan, where additional medical and therapeutic services can strengthen your motivation and reinforce your dedication to sobriety and a drug-free lifestyle.

Positive Treatment Outcomes

Alta Mira has established a working relationship with Vista Research Group. This allows us to measure your progress as you move through treatment, and gives us valuable feedback we can use to adjust your treatment plan to achieve superior results.

Effective Treatments for Co-Occurring Disorders with Morphine Addiction

Co-occurring mental health disorders are frequent complicating factors for men and women who struggle with morphine addiction. These conditions can easily undermine your sobriety if they are left undiagnosed or untreated, which is why Alta Mira treatment plans for morphine addiction will include extensive services for any mental health disorders that are identified.

Evidence-Based Treatment Modalities

At Alta Mira, we adhere strictly to recovery schedules that incorporate evidence-based treatment methods. Our clients benefit tremendously by their exposure to these time-tested methodologies, as will you if you grant us your trust.

Your personalized treatment plan will include a mixture of the most effective healing methodologies, chosen exclusively based on your needs and preferences. Some of the options include cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), Somatic Awareness, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Relapse Prevention classes, and holistic healing practices that can improve your mental, physical, and spiritual health.

Accurate Diagnosis

An initial evaluation by a staff psychiatrist will help clarify your diagnosis, which will likely include co-occurring disorders in addition to morphine addiction. Further individualized neuropsychological testing will be provided, to guarantee that all symptoms experienced are identified and added to your medical profile.

Appropriate Medications

Opiate addictions are often treated with maintenance medications, at least for the first few weeks of treatment. Gradual tapering of dosages of these medications can eventually get you off of opiates completely, and at Alta Mira your medication consumption will be closely and carefully monitored to make sure it is under control.

How to Help a Loved One Get Treatment for Morphine Addiction

The Challenge

Morphine addiction is unplanned and unexpected. Consequently, your loved one may deny they have a problem, even when its negative impact on their life seems obvious. Of course, their chances of recovery are better if they can get help early, before their addiction runs out of control, and that is far more likely to happen if you actively encourage them to seek treatment. Your influence can be profound, when it is backed by love and a refusal to let their initial denial create a tragic outcome.

Recognizing Morphine Addiction

People with drug addiction often try to hide their behavior. This can make morphine dependency challenging to spot.

The symptoms of opiate abuse and addiction include:

  • Daytime drowsiness
  • General sluggishness and lack of energy
  • Sleeping late or at odd times of the day
  • Loss of appetite
  • Inattention to hygiene
  • Lack of focus and concentration
  • Mood swings
  • Reclusiveness or secretive behavior
  • Frequent flu-like symptoms
  • Unresponsiveness or loss of consciousness after one or multiple doses

A morphine overdose can be deadly, but it is a likely result if use of the drug continues to escalate. It is therefore vital that you convince your loved one to get help before things reach this dangerous stage.

Get Help for Yourself

If your child or partner is struggling with morphine abuse, the toll it takes on you can be immense. To support your mental and emotional health, you should consider joining a support group for family members of people who’ve been abusing drugs or alcohol. Nar-Anon sponsors such groups in most large communities and in many smaller ones as well.

Consider an Interventionist

Trying to break through the walls of denial erected by men and women suffering from drug addiction can be frustrating. To help with this process, you might want to consider hiring a professional interventionist. When the time comes to confront a loved one about their reckless and self-destructive behavior, an organized intervention led by a trained expert can increase your chances of success.
