Is Outpatient Drug Rehab Right For You?

Outpatient Drug Rehab

There are two types of rehabilitation options, inpatient and outpatient. Inpatient rehabilitation is for those who need to be under supervision 24/7.

Whereas, outpatient rehabilitation is ideal for those with a mild addiction at its early stages. If you are ready to stop, or you want to get help for your loved one before it gets worse, try outpatient drug rehab. This option is also ideal for those people who cannot afford to put their lives on hold and need flexibility while getting the help they need.

According to research About 35 million people suffer from drug addiction around the world. however, only one in seven people actually get treated for their addiction. It is quite obvious according to statistics, that there are not many people getting the help they need. If you are concerned about a loved one, outpatient rehab is a great first step on the road to recovery.

We also work hand in hand with mental health professionals to create a treatment and recovery plan that is the most advantageous to each patient. We work with each patient to create the best plan that fits their needs and lifestyle.

Suboxone is a prescription medication that is used to treat opiate and heroin addiction. Suboxone has been proven to help decrease cravings and decrease the risk of relapse. In comparison to the treatment of methadone that must be administered in a highly regulated facility, buprenorphine is the first opioid-dependent drug that can be prescribed or dispensed in physicians’ offices. At Midwest Health Center our Suboxone doctors are here to help you get your life on track whether you have had problems with opiate or prescription painkillers, use of heroin, or any other type of opiate abuse.

Addiction Recovery

While Suboxone is a great way to overcome opiate addiction. The physical addiction to opiate is severe and has to be taken seriously. After taking suboxone there can be common side effects such as headaches, body aches, and fatigue. The withdrawal symptoms may take a week or two to fully disappear, depending on how strong your addiction is. This is the most difficult but the most important step to your recovery. Your doctor will help you battle the withdrawal symptoms with medicine, and you will need the support of your loved ones while you are at home.

After your recovery, you can still check in with your doctor from time to time and continue going to your support group for as long as you think you need to.
