Breaking Free from Opana Addiction
Opana is a newer prescription painkiller that is believed to be doubly as strong as Oxycontin. While many have never heard of this painkiller, the substance can lead to fatalities when abused. Opana addiction is a serious issue. If you are seeking to renew your life and break free of addiction to this narcotic painkiller, residential treatment can help.
While many compare Opana addiction to abuse of Oxycontin, the two prescription drugs are dissimilar in many ways. For example, Opana is less stimulating and tends to make users drowsy. As a result, problems with the proper functioning of the lungs can deprive those with Opana addiction of air. Opana can also lead to paranoid thoughts, seizures and problems with the heart rate.
Even though Opana is a newer drug on the market, our residential treatment facility specializes in treating patients who suffer from Opana addiction. The first step in the recovery process is detox. This process can last up to a week. Those detoxing from their Opana addiction will experience unpleasant symptoms like vomiting, bone pain, and hot and cold flashes.
Once detox has been completed, our residential treatment center will provide various resources to help the addict to overcome his or her issue. This includes one-on-one therapy and group therapy. During these sessions, the addict is encouraged to explore issues that may have lead to drug addiction. It is important to gain an understanding of triggers that might continue to cause drug abuse in the future. Once these triggers are consciously acknowledged, they are easier to overcome.
Other resources offered by our treatment program include nutrition counseling, massage, yoga and even biofeedback. Patients will also receive assistance in determining an extended recovery program, including outpatient treatment that will help maintain sobriety.
