Signs of Opioid Addiction

If you’re concerned that a friend or family member might be struggling with opioid addiction, watch for the following signs. Once you see some of these signs, it is best to reach out for opioid addiction treatment in Massachusetts from a reputed provider, such as Vertava Health.

Keep an eye out for signs of opioid addiction such as:

  • Mood swings
  • Drowsiness
  • Slurred speech
  • Intense nausea and vomiting
  • Excessive sweating
  • Nodding off

Opioid Detox

Because of the dangers associated with opioid withdrawal, opioid use disorder treatment often includes a medical drug detox. This program involves the supervision of registered nurses and licensed nurse practitioners to ensure that patients are safely weaned off opioids. The length of an opioid detox depends on various factors but will typically last four to ten days. If appropriate, medications may be administered to mitigate opioid withdrawal symptoms as well as help with dependency. Once the patient is stabilized, they will progress to another program more tailored to their psychological needs. 

Opioid Addiction Rehab Massachusetts at Vertava Health

Because opioid dependence can fall on a broad spectrum of severity, we provide patients with customized treatment plans tailored to their unique needs. Opioid addiction treatment for someone misusing prescription painkillers can be vastly different than heroin addiction treatment.

We not only use measurement-based assessment tools to determine the severity of dependence but also talk with our patients to learn more about their conditions and recovery goals. Using this information, as well as the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) criteria, our team of addiction professionals will create these personalized treatment plans and continuously adjust them as patients make progress in their opioid recovery journeys.

Because mental health and opioid use can often be connected, we also offer co-occurring disorder treatment in Massachusetts that helps patients learn to manage mental health symptoms that are connected to their use and addiction so that they can work toward lasting recovery. Our team works with our clients to determine which of our programs would be best for their health and well-being. Personalized treatment plans ensure that each person’s recovery journey is right for them.

Our treatment programs include:

  • Cognitive-behavioral therapy
  • Aftercare and alumni programming
  • Family therapy and support
  • Recreational therapy
  • Motivational interviewing
