Opioid Addiction Treatment Programs

Partial Hospitalization for Opioid Use Disorder in Egg Harbor, NJ

A partial hospitalization program (PHP) is ideal for individuals grappling with mental illness and substance abuse, including opioid use disorder. A PHP offers a more structured and comprehensive treatment approach than traditional outpatient treatment options, making it particularly effective for those dealing with the complexities of opioid dependence.

Our New Jersey treatment facility specializes in providing a tailored PHP experience to help individuals overcome opioid addiction. For several hours a day, three to five days per week, our PHP addresses addiction triggers and provides vital support for managing behavioral health and mental health issues associated with opioid addiction. This integrated approach is essential for promoting lasting recovery and preventing relapse.

Outpatient Rehab for Opioid Dependence in Egg Harbor Township, NJ

Greenbranch Recovery offers a tranquil environment that provides the setting for a mixture of individual and group therapy. Our Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) for opioid addiction provides a flexible treatment option that accommodates the personal schedules of those in recovery. Intensive outpatient treatment allows individuals to continue working, attending school, participating in extracurricular activities or caring for their family members while still receiving the essential support they need.

As a step down from a traditional PHP, an IOP offers greater flexibility, with clients able to attend sessions during the day or evening according to availability. To learn about our IOP scheduling, contact our team today at 609-622-5101.

How Does Outpatient Rehab Treat Opioid Use?

A typical day in an IOP for opioid addiction involves meeting with support staff, therapists, and peers who understand the unique challenges of overcoming an opioid dependence. The program equips clients with vital life skills, such as obtaining or maintaining employment, discovering personal meaning and purpose, and fostering social connections with others on a similar path to recovery.

In addition, IOPs address the root causes of opioid addiction and teach clients how to build and maintain healthy relationships. Our outpatient opioid treatment programs also guide repairing relationships that may have been damaged during addiction, promoting healing and reconciliation.

Opioid Addiction Explained

Even though opioids are a class of drugs often prescribed for pain relief due to illness, injury or surgery, the misuse of opioids has led many to score opiates outside the prescription. In January 2023 alone, New Jersey saw 271,000 Opioid Prescriptions, 1,300 Naloxone Administrations and 230 Suspected Deaths.

This is one of the most dangerous addictions with a high mortality rate. In some cases, manufactured opioids are much stronger than heroin, and confusion regarding dosage can lead to serious complications and even death. Professional substance abuse treatment services and therapy are strongly advised.

  • Hydrocodone (VicodinⓇ)
  • Oxycodone (OxyContinⓇ and PercocetⓇ) 
  • Oxymorphone (OpanaⓇ) 
  • Morphine
  • Fentanyl
  • Codeine
  • Heroin
  • Opium

Opiate addiction is a progressive illness that clouds the judgment of the sufferer. Opioid addiction can be particularly dangerous because the body becomes strongly dependent on these substances. If you’ve been taking them for more than a few weeks and tried to stop, you’ll be aware of the uncomfortable feelings that occur. Realizing you have a problem and trying to seek information and help is the first step toward getting better.

Signs and Symptoms of Opiate Addiction

Many people who use opiates need higher quantities because their opioid receptors increase. This physical dependence is a result of chemical changes in the brain. As the brain quickly builds up a tolerance to the drug, people suffering from opioid addiction stop getting the strong sense of euphoria that they first experienced.

Worse, the drug hijacks the brain’s ability to naturally create endorphins and serotonin, its “happy” chemicals. In a desperate attempt to feel somewhat normal, opioid users increase the dosage or resort to high-risk ways of getting their ‘fix.’ If you’ve gotten to this stage, it’s time to seek the help of a professional.

  • Spending more and more time alone away from friends and loved ones
  • Loss of interest in activities that used to be enjoyable
  • Lack of regard for personal hygiene
  • Low mood, anxiety and depression
  • Weight fluctuations and changes in eating habits
  • Incoherent speech and memory lapses
  • Disturbed sleep
  • Agitation and nervousness
  • Failure to meet responsibilities such as work and school
  • Financial difficulties such as debt, stealing and poverty
  • Getting into legal difficulties

Long-Term Effects of Opioid Use Disorder

While the short-term consequences listed above are dire, long-term effects are even worse. The impact of repeatedly abusing any form of opioids can lead to lasting, potentially permanent, physical and mental health damage.

  • Memory loss
  • Depression
  • Violent behavior
  • Bleeding ulcers
  • Liver and kidney damage
  • Seizures
  • Coma
  • Death

The good news is that many treatment centers have partnerships to ease withdrawal symptoms, ensure your safety, and make you as comfortable as possible during this challenging time.
