At Vertava Health Massachusetts, we see an ever-increasing number of people seeking treatment for opiate addiction. Unfortunately, this trend applies to the entire United States, not just here in Massachusetts. It is troubling to see these numbers increase, but we are doing our part to fight against addiction. Understanding the opiate addiction epidemic and the available substance abuse treatment programs is crucial to getting the help you need to recover fully.
Opiates are commonly prescribed for legitimate reasons and vital pain relief. Unfortunately, otherwise useful and necessary prescription opiates can often become addictive and lead to more serious issues such as heroin addiction. While this is not always the case, recognizing these dangers can mean the difference between life and death.
If you or someone you love is struggling with addiction, an opiate addiction treatment program in Massachusetts is the best option for finding true recovery. Call Vertava Health Massachusetts as 888.655.0289 today.

Opiate Addiction Treatment Program Offerings
To beat opiate addiction, professional help from trained medical staff and counselors is almost always required. At Vertava Health Massachusetts, the first step is detoxification. Going through opiate detox can be unpleasant due to the withdrawal symptoms, which can be painful or fatal. Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) is the application of FDA-approved prescription medicines to help mitigate withdrawal symptoms. This greatly increases the chances a person will not relapse.
After detox, most individuals battling opiate addiction will enter an inpatient or residential treatment program. This intensive, scheduled regiment of treatment will introduce clinical modalities to help you change your thinking and behavior with regard to your addiction triggers. This kind of clinical treatment is essential because co-occurring disorders–addiction and mental health issues, such as depression or anxiety, often occur simultaneously and negatively reinforce one another.
Some of the treatments that may be used during rehab include:
Cognitive-behavioral therapy works by changing negative thinking and behavior patterns in a goal-oriented manner. It also helps imprint positive images, beliefs, and behaviors in the mind. The idea is to create positivity and make drug use less appealing or seemingly necessary.
Motivational interviewing focuses on boosting motivation to live a healthy and sober life. For example, a person may be motivated to quit by thinking of the well-being of their children. They will then focus on that idea to inspire their recovery during treatment. Our experts will identify motivational and inspiring aspects of a person’s life and use them as a springboard for recovery.
After completing residential treatment, many patients transition to some form of outpatient treatment depending upon their individual needs. This could be a rather intense partial hospitalization program, or a more flexible outpatient therapy program, or even regular 12-step program meetings. The point is that once your treatment is completed, Vertava Health Massachusetts is still here for you and will give you the tools to maintain your sobriety.
