At San Diego Comprehensive Treatment Centers, we know that overcoming a dependence upon opioids involves more than merely suppressing cravings and alleviating painful withdrawal symptoms. When a person has become addicted to morphine, prescription painkillers, heroin, or other opioids, effective treatment must address the emotional and psychological factors that either contributed to or have been impacted by substance abuse. Attempting to treat addiction by focusing only on a patient’s physical symptoms significantly reduces the likelihood that the treatment will be effective or that recovery, if achieved at all, will be long-lasting. For these reasons, the dedicated professionals who work at San Diego Treatment Centers provide comprehensive care that incorporates both medication assisted treatment services and therapeutic interventions.
It is difficult to overestimate the effect that untreated emotional turmoil or psychological distress can have on a person’s ability to overcome an addiction to opioids. Achieving long-term recovery is dependent upon identifying and developing solutions to deal with all underlying issues and co-occurring disorders. Neglecting this essential component in addiction treatment makes it much less likely that the addicted individual will be able to make the lifestyle changes that are necessary to resist relapse triggers and maintain sobriety. To best prepare our patients to live healthy drug-free lives, we ensure that their mental health needs are attended to via a variety of therapeutic opportunities, including the following:
- Individual therapy
- Group therapy
Therapy at San Diego Comprehensive Treatment Centers is provided by experienced and compassionate counselors who have been specifically trained to provide this essential support to men and women who are struggling with opioid abuse and addiction. Because treatment at our five centers is personalized according to the unique needs of each person who chooses to heal with us, the types of therapy that each patient receives and the frequency with which he or she receives these services will depend upon his or her specific treatment plan.
