Buprenorphine is a prescription drug ( brand name Subutex, among others), which falls under a class of medications known as mixed opioid agonist-antagonists. It is used as a replacement for other opiates that someone is addicted to. So, Buprenorphine detox has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat opioid addiction. Buprenorphine detox works by attaching itself to the brain's receptors, which cause the general feeling of calmness and euphoria. It then blocks the effects of other opiates leading to a decrease of cravings.

the treatment using naltrexone.

Levels of Care
Partial Hospitization Program:
Partial hospitalization program offers intensive care services to people suffering from substance
abuse disorders without requiring them to stay within the facility. So, the program necessitates
you to attend sessions daily then go back home the same day. Studies have shown that PHP
reduces addiction and mental health symptoms at a lower cost than inpatient and outpatient
settings. The program can last for one to six months or one week, depending on your situation.
Max Duration Partial Hospitalization Program: 30
Intensive outpatient is a treatment program for substance abuse in which people visit a treatment
center several days a week. It can also be used to address depression, eating disorders, or any
other dependency that does not require detoxification or fulltime supervision. An intensive
outpatient is designed to create a support system and to prevent a relapse. People who are
enrolled in this form of a program go through individual, group, couple, and family counseling
sessions. They also receive medications for mental health and addiction disorders.
Max duration for Intensive Outpatient IOP: 120
Inpatient treatment also cognized as residential treatment offers rehab services for clients with
severe substance use disorder. Inpatient treatment programs last for a minimum of one to three
months in a safe and secure environment. Moreover, the surroundings are usually free from
events that trigger substance abuse. So, the program will require you to stay in the facility during
the treatment period. Some of the services offered in this form of setting include detoxification,
medication management, and individual therapy,†among others.
Max duration for Inpatient: 30
Outpatient treatment is ideal for people who want to achieve sobriety but cannot abandon other responsibilities to be at an inpatient rehab center. Mild or moderate substance use disorders can successfully be treated in this form of setting if they are detected early enough. The treatment sessions take place several days a week for a limited amount of hours. Outpatient services can be delivered via various settings such as the hospital clinic, therapistís office, or local health department, among others.

Sober Living Homes:
A sober living home acts as a bridge between an inpatient facility and the real world. It enables
you to recover in a safe environment with people who are in a similar situation as yours. Sober
living homes are usually free from alcohol or drugs. Every person is required to follow the rules
if they want to continue staying in the house regardless of the management style. Most of the
sober living programs revolve around the 12 step programs and a sound recovery methodology.
Alcoholism is the most severe problem associated with the drinking of alcohol-associated with an
uncontrollable strong urge to drink. It is also known as alcohol dependence because addicts place
drinking above all other obligations and may forsake activities they previously enjoyed. Their
bodies mainly have developed physical tolerance of alcohol, and as such, the individuals may get
withdrawal symptoms if they stop drinking. They continue to drink despite experiencing adverse
interpersonal or social effects.
Opioid addiction is a compulsive and robust urge to continually take a class of drugs that have
the opioid chemical composition. Opioid drugs provoke the release of endorphin and dopamine
neurotransmitters in the body, which causes one to feel euphoric. They include legal prescription
painkillers such as methadone, fentanyl, and oxycodone as well as illegal drugs like heroin.
Continued opioid use even under a prescription affects the brain chemistry making the body to
demand more to get the same high feeling.
Mental Health and Substance Abuse:
Mental health and substance abuse issues are commonly interlinked, and when they occur
together, it is referred to as a dual diagnosis or co-occurring disorder. It is normally characterized
by drug addiction and a mental health disorder such as bipolar disease or anxiety. Both drug
abuse and mental health disorders have individual and unique symptoms. However, if any of the
problems are left untreated, it triggers the other problem to worsen.
Dual diagnosis is when one has a mental health issue alongside a substance abuse problem. It is
also referred to as a co-occurring disease characterized by individual symptoms for both
problems. However, the two issues tend to be linked because when one goes untreated, it triggers
the other problem to worsen. When both are ignored, they increase in severity at a heightened
rate, making oneís life unbearable.
Family therapy involves working closely with couples aiming at counseling them to
nurture changes and development. The family counseling approach views the family
development based on interaction systems among family members. It emphasizes a lot on family
relationships as one of the most crucial factors in psychological health development. For the
effectiveness of this program, the therapist must possess the skill to engage the families in the
therapy session directly.
Individual therapy program, also regarded as psychotherapy is a counseling program where
trained therapists work one-on-one with their clients. The program is conducted in a safe,
confidential, and caring environment. It enables the clients to explore their feelings, behaviors,
beliefs, and work through some of their past influential and challenging memories. Also, they
identify life aspects that they would like to change, understand themselves better, and establish
their desired goals.
Group therapy program engages more than one therapist treating several patients as a group. This means that this form of psychotherapy happens in a group format, but is usually applied to a small psychodynamic group where the context and the process of the concerned group are explicitly used as a change, development, exploration and examination mechanism on interpersonal relationships within the group. Therapists offer support and training on mindfulness, anger management, social skills, and relaxation.
Nutrition therapy is an approach used to treat medical conditions by use of individually tailored
diet under the monitoring of medical dietitian. Therapists base this treatment diet on the patientís
medical record, dietary history, functional and physical examination. This therapy is aimed at
reducing the risk of developing patient complications in pre-existing health issues such as
diabetes, ameliorate, and cholesterol. The diet put in place in this program is not aimed at
replacing treatment but complementing the regular drug therapies prescribed by healthcare
