Most people with opioid dependency never meant to get on the path of drug abuse. For many it began with pain, a surgery or an experience where they were given prescription opioids. Over time, they found they couldn’t stop using opioid painkillers.

Whatever led to your opiate addiction, you can get better. At Lucida, we help people stop abusing opioid drugs and reclaim their lives. We provide evidence-based residential treatment for painkiller abuse. In our opiate addiction treatment program, we work with you to understand the issues that led to your addiction. We help you create a toolbox of coping skills you can use for life. If you or a loved one is struggling with opioid substance abuse, call us at 888-558-1197.

Treatment for Co-Occurring Mental Health Disorders

At Lucida, we treat opioid use disorders along with co-occurring mental health disorders. Opiate addiction often goes hand in hand with:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety disorders
  • Alcohol abuse and other substance use disorders
  • Bipolar disorder

We provide expert psychiatric care and medication management as part of your recovery from opioid use disorders.

Opiate Addiction Treatment Options

Lucida offers a variety of evidence-based treatments for opioid addiction. We design your drug rehab treatment program to meet your individual physical, mental, emotional and spiritual needs. Inpatient rehab treatment options may include:

  • Individual therapy. You’ll work one-on-one with an addiction counselor who is experienced at treating opioid use disorders. Your therapist will be a trusted guide during inpatient rehab. They will work with you to address the problems that led to, and were caused by, your opiate abuse.
  • Group therapy. Research has shown that people have faster healing and higher success rates when they engage in group work. It’s an effective way of treating opioid addiction because you share with others in a safe space, led by a facilitator. Because everyone is in a similar situation, there’s no judgement and you can learn from each other.
  • Family therapy. Families are often devastated by drug abuse and addiction. They’ve lived in fear of destructive behavior, drug overdoses and loss. They’ve endured the long list of problems that accompany drug addiction. Family therapy is a chance to learn healthy communication skills in a safe space guided by a therapist. Family members learn new ways to support and relate to each other. We also offer a family program where loved ones learn about addiction and how to take care of themselves while helping you.
  • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). This form of therapy is popular in drug abuse treatment programs because it’s a practical and helpful way to improve your mental health. CBT encourages you to improve the “here and now” rather than focusing on the past. It helps you change your behaviors and develop new coping strategies.
  • Trauma therapy. These types of therapies help you unearth the roots of trauma and begin healing from traumatic experiences. Trauma therapies come in several forms, such as somatic therapy. Somatic therapy accesses trauma by locating it in various points of the body. At Lucida Treatment Center, we find some clients benefit from EMDR (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing). EMDR helps you find the original emotional injury in your life. From there, more traumas can be discovered and healed.
  • Psychodrama. This form of therapy allows you to gain insights into your coping mechanisms, past experiences and ways of interacting with others. Psychodrama involves role playing and acting out moments from your past as part of treatment for opioid addiction. Bringing memories to life gives you a chance to see them in a new light.
  • Dialectical behavior therapy skills. DBT addresses underlying issues of mental illness and substance abuse with practical strategies like mindfulness. It considers that you may have been emotionally stuck for a long time. It helps you get unstuck by giving you tools that can improve all areas of life. DBT concepts include:
    • Emotional regulation
    • Distress tolerance
    • Interpersonal relationship skills
    • Mindfulness
  • Fitness. Putting your focus on healthier habits can enhance all the therapeutic work you do. At our opiate addiction treatment center, you’ll learn self-care strategies you can carry with you for the rest of your life like fitness and yoga.

Therapy at Lucida addresses the underlying issues that led you to opioid treatment. We’ll also help you develop skills to build healthy relationships and work on family dynamics in our family program. Research shows that people who feel supported by their family members have greater rates of success in drug abuse treatment.
