Here’s the other amazing news:  You’re already on your way to recovering from your opioid addiction because you’re reading about it right here, right now.  That’s the first step is to contact our opioid treatment center in Raleigh, you’ll move on to which is detox.


Part of getting better and beating this opioid addiction is being honest and being real, so we’re going to start right here.  Detox is hard.  It is uncomfortable, and you won’t enjoy it, but it must happen for you to begin treatment at a opioid treatment center.  Your body must have no traces of opioids, and it typically takes 5-7 days for that to happen.

What to expect from the detox experience?  Withdrawal symptoms.  As unappealing as they are, withdrawal symptoms are a great sign that your body is cleansing itself and getting rid of the opioids in your system.  Withdrawal may be severe or mild and can depend on the length of the addiction and amount of opioid use. Withdrawal symptoms can include:

  • Nausea
  • Cold Sweats
  • Stomach Pains
  • Increased Heart Rate
  • Muscle cramping
  • Depression
  • Agitation
  • Anxiety
  • Vomiting/Diarrhea

You’ll likely also experience opioid cravings, which is why we recommend medical detox.  This will help to manage your withdrawal symptoms.  Without the assistance of a medical assistance during detox, a relapse could likely occur. Relapse does not have to occur from not entering a detox before treatment, but it can make the process of getting clean and sober easier.

We have a team of partner organizations that assist our opioid addicts with detox.  They’ll help you get through detox, so we can get your opioid treatment underway at the rehab center in Raleigh immediately following detoxification.  A clean, sober life free from opioid use isn’t out of your reach, and detox can be the key to a successful start.

What Happens Next?

Fighting the disease of addiction on your own is very difficult.  It can be done, but it’s rare.  That’s the reason why we’re here.  Had it none been for addiction treatments like the ones we provide here in Raleigh, even the founders of this rehab center wouldn’t be clean and sober today.

There is no shame in getting help.  As a matter of fact, you should be proud of yourself.  If more people took this step, opioid abuse wouldn’t have a place in society.  Here in North Carolina, the death rates of opioid overdose have risen in record numbers in the last few years, and the disease of addiction is ready to claim more lives.

But we can help with the treatment programs available at the rehab center in Raleigh, because to us, your road to recovery will be unique to you. We’ve created programs that are proven successful and tailor each one to your specific needs.

Residential Treatment

Residential treatment is the most successful program we provide, and we highly recommend it because it provides 24-7 care with professional addiction specialists on site anytime you need help.  These experts are especially useful during the most difficult times during recovery.

Success from residential treatment happens so frequently because there are no outside distractions during the recovery process. Negative influences and enabling factors are eliminated and non-existent. You are not exposed to the temptations of old playmates and playgrounds. You are able to create a new, productive and positive day to day routines that you didn’t have when you were using.

We offer a vast amount of therapies from which to choose to support your opioid rehab, which includes:

  • Family Therapy
  • Individual Therapy
  • Holistic Therapy
  • Dual Diagnosis Therapy

Partial Hospitalization Program

Our partial hospitalization program (also called PHP) is an option for people who will attend treatment for the bulk of the day but live at home.  We mostly prefer this program to be implemented following Residential Treatment as a transitional plan, but it is used successfully for those with that don’t require 24-7 care.  With the PHP treatment plan, the therapies available in Residential Treatment are also available, which include meditation, art therapy, music therapy, and yoga.

Intensive Outpatient Program

Also known as the IOP this part-time program allows individuals to work or go to school while receiving treatment. This is a great way to get reacclimated to life outside our rehab center and is best for those who can live in a sober facility that promotes responsibility and accountability.  IOP also has group and individual therapies available to clients in this program.

Why Different Approaches Are So Important in Opioid Rehab Centers

We offer a variety of different therapies and treatments because not all addicts respond to the same treatments in the same way.  We have programs that focus on healing in every area.

Dual Diagnosis

The fact is that nearly 9 million people in the United States alone have a mental health disorder and a substance addiction problem.  This is called a “co-occurring disorder.” The disease of addiction can present itself in many ways. Our experienced addiction specialists and doctors can help you assess whether your issues are a manifestation of the disease or something else.

Some of the most common co-occurring disorders that pair with opioid addiction include bipolar disorder, depression, anxiety and personality disorder. Even an eating disorder or a behavioral issue such as gambling, or sex addiction can play a role in your addiction history.   We can treat both the underlying issue and the opioid addiction, so you have the best opportunity for a full recovery.

If left untreated, your risks of a successful outcome decrease dramatically.  We want to heal your whole body and give you best chance at beating this opioid addiction.  For many people who come to the rehab center, diagnosis of your issues and treatment of your addiction are the best chance at living a life of recovery and free from active addiction.

Family Therapy

It is quite likely that you are at odds with the people you love and those that love you.  This is perhaps one of the most heart-breaking aspects of opioid addiction because you have damaged relationships with the very people who love you the most.  The disease of addiction can tear families apart, but family therapy can help bring families back together. Even though the relationship has suffered, your family has never stopped loving you. Family therapy can help heal those hurts and give your family the insight into the disease they need to help support you in your recovery.

Perhaps one of the reasons you’ve continued using is to deal with the pain you’ve endured and caused when it comes to your family, and now you need to heal as individuals and together.  We can help to make that happen.  We strive to be a total support system for your addiction recovery that goes far beyond simply mending a broken relationship.  Apologies are in order, but in time with your recovery and healing as the priority.

Family counseling can take place with your family at the treatment center or over the phone.  We’ll speak to your family members both with and without you present.  This isn’t to be sneaky or vindictive.  Speaking to your family without you present may help put your family at ease and allow them to speak more candidly about their real feelings about your behavior, your addiction and how it has affected them.

You will be able to talk about things that have never been discussed and let out feelings that you have been holding inside.  Allowing your true feelings out, as opposed to letting them manifest inside is can causes a lot of harm. As is said, “our secrets keep us sick.”  No matter what has happened to you in the past and no matter what you have done, healing can happen.  You must deal with your true feelings of anger, regret, fear, sadness and any other feelings you harbor inside, so healing on every level can being. But, more important than anything else is just beginning the journey of recovery by getting clean.

Individual Therapy

Individual therapy for opioid recovery is when an individual is paired with a therapist for one-on-one discussions.  The meetings will occur on a routine schedule possibly once or twice a week, depending on how you are responding to the individual therapy sessions.

Some people respond well to individual therapy while others do not respond as well.  There can be some very intense underlying problems that are discussed during rehab.  Digging deep into these feelings can be very upsetting for the addict.  It is very important that these feelings be dealt with in the most productive manner and in the best setting as possible.

If underlying problems are not dealt with during therapies, the risk of a relapse is extremely high.  As uncomfortable as dealing with underlying problems may be, it eventually must happen for a successful recovery to take place.

Group Therapy

This involves therapists and multiple people – 45 at the most – who will gather at the same place together. This peer to peer communication and support is beneficial because some people are most comfortable talking a group setting as opposed to one on one with a therapist. Group therapy allows clients to open up to one another about their feelings and problems without the risk of being judged.  This is also an opportunity to create long-lasting relationships and bonds that are healthy and supportive.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Cognitive behavioral therapy is productive for a lot of different people.  Put simply, it is a way to change our client’s negative thinking patterns to positive thinking patterns.  By recognizing that it seems to be instinctive to go straight to negative thoughts, individuals will become more conscious of their thought patterns and how it affects their personal choices.

Also referred to as CBT, this type of therapy is available in both group and individual therapy sessions.  Working one-on-one with a therapist who can gently guide you toward positive thoughts and simultaneously guide you away from negative thinking will help you to begin to adopt positive thought habits over time.  When a someone recognizes this progression and new thought pattern, that person likely becomes more comfortable opening up to a therapist about other underlying problems.

CBT is also very productive in group settings.  When an addict witnesses peers improving their thinking processes to positive thoughts and positive behaviors. that person is more likely to recognize the value of the process and begin adopting the same positive habits.

CBT can also become a powerful coping mechanism once treatment has concluded.  Having a positive outlook on conflicting situations as they relate to day to day life or other problems that may arise can be very positive for an individual who needs this support.

Holistic Therapy

Holistic therapy is extremely beneficial.  We have a host of holistic options that have proven successful in the journey to a sober life.  These holistic options are available for all treatment levels including residential treatment, partial hospitalization and intensive outpatient.

Holistic therapy does not include the use of any medications. It is most successful when combined with the other therapies listed above.  Holistic therapy options include yoga, meditation, tai chi, , massage, music therapy, art therapy and many more.  The benefits range from improving physical strength and proving emotional stability and can also help with sleep issues and stress reduction.

It can also help build regular exercise routines that have a host of physical benefits and has also been linked to better sleep, and a healthier emotional and mental state, all of which can help in the desire to live a life free of opioid use.

Creating healthy physical routines that nurture your body mind and soul will make your addiction recovery efforts more powerful.  We are here to help the entire healing process and encourage all our clients to take advantage of each therapy we offer and help them to feel stronger on the road to recovery.
