Opiate addiction treatment can help people stop using—or misusing—prescription pain medications or opioids such as heroin and fentanyl.

Generally, prescription opiates are safe to use for short periods of time to relieve pain. But longer-term use, misuse, and abuse can lead to addiction or overdose. Many people begin using heroin as a replacement when their prescription for pain medication runs out. Heroin is a highly addictive and illegal drug. Even though opioid addiction can be a serious condition, it is highly treatable.

In 2017, approximately 130 people a day died as a result of opioid overdose. As a result, opioid misuse and addiction is considered a serious national crisis.

By learning what effective opiate addiction treatment looks like and understanding the value of an inpatient opiate addiction treatment center, you or your loved one can get the care needed to work toward lasting recovery.

Opiate Addiction Treatment Overview


Opiate addiction is a very serious and dangerous addiction. Residential treatment for opioid addiction is the best option for recovery. Medically supervised detox is the first step of treatment for opiate addiction. Following detoxification, patients receive a tailored treatment plan with the steps and tools needed for successful recovery from their addiction.

Inpatient opiate rehab provides a safe and supportive environment during each step of the recovery process as well as the skills needed to maintain sobriety after active treatment has stopped.

When clients first walk through our doors at Alta Mira, many are unaware they may have an untreated mental health issue which is contributing to their struggle with opioid addiction. Treating the symptoms of the addiction alone may not lead to lasting recovery if the co-occurring disorder remains unrecognized and untreated. Our approach provides for the most accurate diagnosis possible, enabling our team to customize an effective treatment plan to fit your unique needs and goals, providing a pathway to a more authentic, productive, and healthy life.

Opiate Addiction Treatment Center Options


Although opiate addiction can be very dangerous it is treatable. A customized treatment plan to tailor you or your loved one’s needs is the best route for recovery.

  • Safe, Medically-Supervised Detoxification. It can be dangerous to try to detox from opiates without medical support. The standard of care for opiate detox is in a residential setting with 24-hour medical supervision. Opiate detox medications, including Suboxone (when clinically indicated), can help make detox safe and comfortable.
  • Residential Treatment. Opiate addiction residential treatment provides patients the medication, therapy, and support they need to succeed in recovery as well as the tools they can use after active treatment has stopped.
  • Ongoing Therapy. Several types of psychotherapy and behavioral counseling can be effective when treating people with opioid addiction. Addiction affects many parts of a person’s life and thus the treatment should also address affected areas, including those with chronic pain.

Committing to your personalized treatment plan and ongoing care you are much more likely to succeed in recovery for opiate addiction.

Opioid Addiction Relapse Prevention


The most effective treatment plans have a component that addresses relapse prevention during recovery. Recovery can be a vulnerable time for people who once were dependent on opioids. Most relapse prevention plans are designed to include peer assistance and support services to help maintain sobriety.

Opioid addiction relapse plans generally include strategies to build a strong support system that can help with identifying and managing emotions, cravings, and stressors, and reinforce newly acquired problem-solving skills.

Opioid addiction can be a difficult condition to overcome. But with treatment, support, and a strong relapse prevention plan, individual outcomes, survival rates, and quality of life can be improved.

Inpatient Opiate Addiction Treatment Centers
