Opioid Addiction Treatment

Opioid Addiction Treatment


Opioids have a long history of use in the United States. Initially prescribed as pain medication, opioids have varying degrees of abuse potential. When people take unprescribed amounts of opioids, their tolerance increases and creates dependence. After that, people may rely on the opioid effect for feelings of relaxation, happiness or euphoria. 

In reality, the opioid epidemic has devastated the U.S. with countless cases of addiction. At DreamLife Recovery, opioid addiction treatment can be a life-saving process. We work to decrease the opioid death rate and find recovery solutions through rehabilitation.

What Are Opioids? +


Opioids are a type of drug derived from opium in poppy plants or synthetically made to mimic those properties. Opioids attach to brain receptors and increase dopamine, also known as “the pleasure chemical.” This process is what gives users a feeling of happiness or relaxation. Popular opioids include prescription painkillers like codeine, fentanyl, morphine and oxycodone. Heroin is considered an illegal opioid.

The disastrous impact of opioid use disorders led the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services in 2017 to declare a public health emergency. Millions of people suffer from opioid use disorder, and one of the most effective ways out is through specialized treatment and rehab. 

Signs of Opioid Use Disorder +


Opioid misuse can provide the feeling of euphoria while drastically taking hold of your body. Along with the risk of overdose, opioid use through injections can spread harmful diseases like HIV and hepatitis. Common signs and symptoms of opioid use disorder include:

  • Insomnia or drowsiness.
  • Depression or anxiety.
  • Mood swings.
  • Weight loss.
  • Reduced libido.
  • Self-isolating or stealing from family and friends.
  • Abandoning responsibilities.
  • Loss of motivation.

Our Opioid Addiction Treatment Program +


If you or a loved one struggles with opioid addiction, treatment is available. At DreamLife Recovery, we believe there is no shame in getting the help you deserve. We offer opioid rehabilitation through evidence-based, trauma-informed strategies.

Our treatment program for people with opioid use disorder will vary depending on individual needs. We often recommend a medication-assisted opioid treatment program for long-term detox needs. FDA-approved medications like buprenorphine, naltrexone or methadone can make withdrawal safer and more comfortable. 

Medication-assisted treatment for opioid use disorder can address physical dependence on a drug. We also create a personalized treatment plan to tackle the mental root of your addiction. Here’s what you can expect from our inpatient program:

  • Individual therapy: Sitting one-on-one with one of our licensed professionals can help you identify the behaviors that lead to your addiction. Individual therapy can also address triggers and give you the tools to rebuild your life. 
  • Group counseling: At DreamLife Recovery, you are not alone. We host group therapy sessions so you can find strength in your community of peers.
  • Relapse prevention: We can give you the resources to prevent future relapse through individualized planning.
  • Dual diagnosis: There is a strong connection between the root of opioid addiction and mental illness for many patients. Our dual diagnosis process can treat co-occurring disorders like anxiety or depression.
  • Aftercare planning: When you leave our opioid rehab center, you will have the resources to continue a lifetime of recovery. Our aftercare planning process can help you feel confident as you return to your life.
