Understanding the Opioid Crisis in Utah
At Steps Recovery Centers, we’re well aware of the extent of the opioid crisis in our beloved state. Every number in Utah’s opioid statistics represents a unique individual, a life impacted by addiction. That’s why we’re devoted to helping each of our patients reclaim their lives from opioid addiction.
We believe in treating the whole person, not just the symptoms of addiction. Our experts explain the biological and psychological components of addiction to our patients, demystifying the process and promoting understanding.
The Addiction Behind Opioids
Opioids create an addictive cycle by causing a surge of dopamine, a neurotransmitter linked to pleasure and satisfaction. We’re here to help break that cycle.
Our dedicated mental health professionals understand that addiction involves more than physical dependence. We’re committed to helping our patients address the strong psychological cravings that mark opioid addiction.
The Importance of Opioid Treatment
At Steps Recovery Centers, we firmly believe in the significance of seeking professional treatment for opioid addiction. Opioid abuse, if left untreated, can have serious and life-threatening consequences. That’s why we’re committed to providing comprehensive care that addresses the full spectrum of our patients’ needs.
Effects of Opioid Abuse
The implications of opioid abuse are far-reaching, impacting not just the individual but also their loved ones and the broader community.
Prolonged opioid use can lead to a variety of physical health issues, including liver damage, respiratory problems, heart complications, and increased risk of infectious diseases. The risk of overdose is always present, which can lead to coma or even death.
Chronic opioid use can also have severe psychological effects, including heightened risk for mental health disorders like depression and anxiety. Additionally, the dependency on opioids can cause severe distress and interfere with daily functioning.
Opioid addiction often results in significant social consequences, such as strained relationships, decreased productivity at work or school, and potential legal issues related to drug use.
Benefits of Seeking Treatment
The decision to seek treatment for opioid addiction can truly be a life-saving choice. Treatment at Steps Recovery Centers is designed to help patients reclaim their lives from the grips of opioid addiction.
The most immediate benefit of treatment is improved physical health. As patients decrease their opioid use, they reduce their risk of the serious health problems associated with these substances.
Better Mental Well-being
Treatment also focuses on improving mental health. Our professionals help patients manage the psychological aspects of addiction, teaching coping strategies to manage stress and cravings.
Through therapy and support, treatment can also help patients repair relationships that may have been damaged by their addiction.
Enhanced Quality of Life
By helping individuals overcome opioid addiction, we aim to enhance the overall quality of life for our patients. This includes helping them find employment, return to education, and re-engage with society in meaningful and fulfilling ways.
At Steps Recovery Centers, we’re committed to guiding you through every step of your recovery journey, providing the highest level of care to ensure your best chance of a successful, long-term recovery.
Personalized Opioid Treatments at Steps Recovery Centers
At Steps Recovery Centers, we offer recovery from opioid addiction from detoxification to outpatient treatment. Our opioid detox utilizes suboxone and vivitrol to help ease patients off of their addiction and toward recovery.
Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT)
Our MAT program combines medication and behavioral therapies to offer a holistic approach to opioid addiction treatment.
In individual therapy, our trained professionals work one-on-one with patients, fostering a safe space for growth and healing.
In group therapy, patients can share experiences, gain insights from others, and build a supportive recovery network.
Your Guide to Choosing the Right Opioid Treatment
Choosing the appropriate treatment for opioid addiction is a critical decision that requires careful consideration. At Steps Recovery Centers, we understand the gravity of this decision, and we’re committed to providing you with the information and support you need to make the best choice.
Assess Your Needs
Everyone’s journey with addiction is different. Therefore, the first step in choosing the right treatment is understanding your unique needs. This could include your medical history, the severity and duration of your opioid use, your mental health status, and your personal circumstances, including support systems and responsibilities.
Inpatient vs. Outpatient Services
We offer both inpatient and outpatient services to cater to different needs. Inpatient treatment provides a structured environment with 24/7 medical supervision, ideal for individuals with severe addiction or co-occurring disorders. Outpatient treatment, on the other hand, offers more flexibility, allowing individuals to continue with their daily responsibilities while receiving treatment.
Check for Accreditation and Quality of Care
We’re proud to be a state-licensed and nationally accredited treatment center. Our team of professionals includes board-certified physicians, licensed therapists, and certified addiction counselors. We are committed to maintaining the highest standards of care and continuously updating our programs based on the latest research.
Consider Aftercare Support
Recovery is a lifelong journey. Hence, aftercare support is essential to help maintain sobriety after treatment. We offer robust aftercare programs, including ongoing counseling, support groups, and resources to help you navigate life post-treatment.
