Opioid Abuse in Older Adults

Do you or a loved one struggle with opioid addiction? If yes, you need America’s Rehab Campus’ programs and treatment to manage the opiate withdrawal symptoms and achieve long and stable sobriety. Opioids are highly addictive, changing your brain’s chemistry and forcing you to keep taking the drug to avoid withdrawal. Joining our rehab program is essential for breaking this cycle and embracing a healthier, sober lifestyle as a result.

The Most Common Opioid Withdrawal Symptoms To Look Out For

Opioid withdrawal symptoms come in two stages as early symptoms and late symptoms. The early ones include:
• Agitation and nervousness
• Irritability
• Anxiety
• Poor sleeping patterns and insomnia
• Runny nose
• Intense sweating for no apparent reason
• Constant yawning, etc.
The late ones tend to be more intense and include physical reactions like:
• Recurrent abdominal cramps
• Digestive problems and diarrhea
• Nausea and vomiting, etc.
If you show multiple of these symptoms, you need to consider joining our rehab program as soon as possible. Opioid addiction is a progressive disorder that aggravates as your brain develops a tolerance to the drug. This means you will need to take more of the substance to experience the same effects, which increases the risk of overdosing as a result.
You can address your substance abuse problem in our state-of-the-art facility with minimal discomfort, pain, or health risks. We ensure our patients’ safety by placing them in a controlled and safe environment, where they can focus on recovery and healing.

How To Treat Opioid Withdrawal

The treatment always begins with an in-depth clinical assessment, during which our rehab experts will assess your opiate withdrawal symptoms and recommend appropriate personalized treatment. This recovery approach relies on structured treatment, encompassing programs like:
• Medical detox for cleansing, stability, and mental and physical recovery
• Inpatient treatment offering access to modern amenities, a comfortable recovery setting, and leading therapies and holistic treatments
• PHP and IOP as part of a step-down level of care, only consisting of day treatments
• Outpatient treatment, promoting smooth and effective social reintegration
• Sober Living programs for individuals who lack a supportive home environment and need long-term recovery assistance and guidance
These programs will help you overcome your addiction, manage your co-occurring mental disorders, and start on a long-term journey towards sobriety and healthy living.
