Opiate (or opioid) addiction is one of the most prominent forms of drug abuse worldwide, and it has been estimated that in the United States alone, 3 million people are affected by opiate abuse. Opiates refer to any type of narcotic opioid that is derived from opium poppy plants. Opiates work to depress the nervous system and are commonly used to reduce pain or to help people fall asleep. They can also be used to quiet feelings of uneasiness and to help a person rest and relax. Some of the most common opiates include heroin, morphine, Vicodin, codeine, OxyContin, and Percocet.

Why Consider Treatment
Why consider treatment for opiate addiction at Vantage Point Behavioral Health Hospital in Fayetteville, AR
If you have been using opiates for any extended period of time, you have probably started to notice some of the consequences that your use has had on your mind and body. Risky behaviors that may not have seemed so risky at the time due to the fact that you were high may now have you stuck in a position where you have to deal with negative consequences. Your opiate use may have led you down a dangerous path of using other opiates, such as heroin. You may start seeing the negative physical aspects of your use, as well as the negative psychological and emotional disturbances that have occurred as a result. If this is the case, it’s time to get the treatment and rehab that you need and deserve.
One of the best ways to manage and overcome an addiction to opiates is through rehab at an inpatient treatment center. The withdrawal symptoms that you will experience once you have ceased using the drugs can be uncomfortable, but by entering rehab at an inpatient treatment center, you will have access to a caring and knowledgeable staff who can help ease that discomfort while you’re going through the detoxification process. You will be medically monitored throughout the duration of rehab to ensure that your safety is never at risk. There are also certain medications that can alleviate some of the withdrawal symptoms that one experiences when coming off of opiates, and you have the option of working with a doctor who can make those medications available to you. Being treated on an inpatient basis also offers you the comfort of knowing that the only thing you have to worry about is your recovery. You are able to remove yourself from the stresses of everyday life and focus on your well-being.

At Vantage Point of Northwest Arkansas, located in Fayetteville, we know that addictions do not present themselves in the same way for everyone, and that your experiences may differ greatly from the experiences of another person who is suffering from the same type of addiction.

At Vantage Point, we offer care at our center that includes acute inpatient treatment. We are diligent in finding ways to meet the specific needs of every patient at our center so that when they leave us, they feel as though they have received the best treatment and rehab possible.
Types of Treatment
Types of opiate addiction treatment offered at Vantage Point Behavioral Health Hospital in Fayetteville, AR
When you first arrive at Vantage Point for opiate addiction, you will meet with a qualified assessment specialist who will conduct a thorough psychosocial assessment to ensure that we understand your specific needs. With the results of the assessment, we are then able to customize an opiate addiction treatment and rehab plan to meet those needs. Once the assessment is complete, an appropriate level of care will be recommended, and an individualized treatment and rehab plan will be devised under the guidance of a psychiatrist, a case manager, and a qualified therapist. Your input will greatly impact the success of that treatment and rehab plan.
At Vantage Point, we offer a variety of treatment and rehab modalities that are tailored to meet your specific needs. The different aspects of treatment we provide at our center for opiate addiction include:
Medication management: Psychotropic medication can assist in the successful treatment and management of opioid addiction. You will work closely with your psychiatrist during rehab at our center in order to find a medication that best suits your chemistry, and that medication will be consistently monitored throughout your stay with us. If changes in medication are required, your psychiatrist will walk you through that process.
Individual therapy: All of our center’s patients will participate in individual (one-on-one) therapy with a qualified therapist at least once per week while in rehab. However, additional sessions can occur at any time at the request of the patient and the discretion of the therapist. During these sessions, patients have the opportunity to explore and process the various emotions that they may be experiencing while also working with the therapist to identify the negative thought patterns that have led to their opiate use. Individual therapy is also a time where patients in rehab at our center can learn appropriate coping skills that they can apply when dealing with the stresses that they face on a daily basis.
Group therapy: Group therapy is held at our center on an ongoing basis, meeting multiple times per day. These group sessions cover topics such as developing positive coping skills, exploring emotional disturbances and their causes, maintaining mood control, and developing healthy interpersonal relationships. Group therapy sessions are also an ideal time for patients to come together to support one another on their recovery journeys.
Family involvement: At Vantage Point in Fayetteville, we understand the importance of family involvement to the success of a person’s treatment and rehab for opioid addiction. Family therapy sessions are held once a week at our center, but extra sessions can be requested and held at the discretion of the individual’s therapist. Patients are also able to have weekly visitation with family members.
Continuing care and levels of treatment for opiate addiction
Planning for discharge begins at the time of a patient’s admission into rehab for opiate addiction at our center. We know how important it is for our center’s patients to get the help that they need and be able to return to their normal daily lives as soon as possible. By having a discharge plan that is started at the time of admission to rehab, it allows case managers and care coordinators time to organize future treatment options that can be provided to patients following their discharge. On the day of discharge, patients will have a final meeting with their treatment and rehab team in order to go over the next steps for treatment for opiate addiction. Patients will leave our program with the next stage of their treatment in place and with the comfort of knowing that they will have the ongoing support that they need.
