Opiate Addiction Treatment
Opiate Treatment Center in Arizona
Opiates — commonly called opioids — are some of the most addictive substances and narcotics in the world. Millions of Americans struggle with opiate addiction after receiving a prescription for a painkiller following major surgery, or due to a chronic condition. About just as many people are addicted to illegal opioids, obtained either by abusing prescriptions or from street-level dealers. No matter the source of the opiate, it is important to realize there is a way out of the addictive cycle.
Come to Blueprints for Recovery, the leading name in drug addiction treatments in Prescott, Arizona. Our center is dedicated entirely to treating young men aged between 18 and 30, which has allowed us to refine and focus our programs and therapies for maximum effectiveness. With your strength and our guidance, you can kick your opioid addiction before it causes more harm.
Extreme Dangers of Opioid Use
Opiates are primarily painkillers that help people overcome or ignore sharp pains associated with surgeries or serious injuries, like bone breaks. The immediate effect of taking an opiate is usually a noticeable pain reduction accompanied by a general lack of other sensations. However, consistent opiate use can lead to various health conditions, many of which can be life-threatening.
An opiate addict may experience:
- Chronic aches despite the opioid use
- Collapsed veins
- Permanent drowse or sedation
- Heart congestion and failure
- Constipation and indigestion
- Liver failure
- Slowed respiratory behavior
- Weakened immune system
Opiates do not require extended use to be dangerous, however. In recent years, illegal opiates have been laced with fentanyl, a manufactured painkiller that is significantly more potent than prescription opioids. For most adults, it takes less than 5 milligrams of fentanyl to trigger a fatal overdose.
Three-Phase Approach to Keep You On Track
With your health and well-being jeopardized by opiate addiction, it is crucial that you act fast to kick the dangerous habit. At Blueprints for Recovery, we use a three-phase approach to recovery that makes it simpler for our patients to keep their eyes on the end goal of recovery and sobriety.
The three steps of our recovery plans are:
- Residential phase that lets a patient temporarily live at our center for around-the-clock support.
- Transitional living that encourages establishing part-time education or employment to find independence again.
- Independent living that relies on healthy relationships with friends, family members, and private therapists.
