You probably never imagined that life could be this bad. We’ve seen it all and so have you—lying, stealing, despair, depression, hopelessness, violence.
But it’s not your loved one doing all of that. The addiction has taken over.
Now, it’s time to imagine a different future. One where your loved one has broken free from addiction and is building a new future. There is laughter. There is time spent together as a family. There is hope.
Treatment for Painkiller Addiction
So how do you launch a new life for your loved one? This isn’t just about getting off painkillers. It’s about learning the skills to cope and building a vision for a future without drugs. And that takes time.
Research has shown that 90-day programs are the most effective in treating addiction. Here are a few other questions you’ll want to ask rehab programs you are considering:
- What is your ratio of residents to staff?
- What level of training does your staff have?
- What co-occurring conditions, like depression, do you treat?
- How do you manage pain pill addiction withdrawal symptoms?
- Do you have a nutritionist on staff?
- What other forms of therapy (like art or music) do you offer
- What recreational opportunities do residents have access to?
- What is your facility like? Is there space to sit outdoors? Where do residents gather to talk. (Ask to see pictures if none are on the website.)
- Who founded your treatment program? If it was an individual, does he or she have any interaction with residents?
- How much does your program cost and will my insurance cover any of it?
- Is a drug rehabilitation loan an option?
- How can I best support my loved one in rehab?
