Determining whether you or a loved one needs substance abuse treatment can feel daunting. In the case of opiate addiction, it can be tough to face the reality that the temporary sensations of well-being and pleasure that the drug delivers do not outweigh the tremendous danger it poses. If you are abusing opiates, your relationships, everyday functioning, and even your life itself are at serious risk.
Tragically, opiate pain relievers like oxycodone and hydrocodone are responsible for by far the most prescription drug overdoses each year. Since the turn of the century, the U.S. has faced a veritable epidemic of deaths due to misuse of this drug class. Fortunately, if you or a loved one needs help in this area, Summit Estate Recovery Center is standing by.

Know the Signs and Risk Factors for Opiate Addiction
Although opiate abuse affects a broad crosssection of the population, several factors increase the risk that this dangerous condition will develop:
- You are no longer using opiates as your doctor directed. For example, you might be taking pills in a manner that leads to faster, and therefore much more dangerous, delivery of the substance to your bloodstream.
- You’ve been taking opiates for more than a few days. Any length of time greater than five days puts you at risk.
- You suffer from anxiety and/or depression.
- Your family has a history of substance abuse.
- You have a history of thrill-seeking behavior.
- You’ve struggled with other types of substance abuse in the past.
- You are frequently exposed to high-risk situations or individuals, such as a demanding job in a volatile sector.
What a Qualified Opiate Addiction Rehab Can Offer You
At a quality opiate rehab center like Summit Estate’s, you can count on an exceptional standard of care. We’ll not only ensure you receive top-of-the-line medical intervention and supervision but a range of holistic treatments acknowledging the link between body and mind.
Residential treatment lasting at least 30 days is often the essential first step in combatting severe addictions like the ones that form concerning opiates. During the first several days of such a program, you’ll receive medical detox under a doctor’s care, ensuring that the lingering effects of opiates fully cease.
Thanks to this essential first step, you’ll be able to receive maximum benefit from the individual therapy, group sessions, and family offerings that follow. We can identify substance abuse that co-occurs with mental health concerns like anxiety and depression through dual diagnosis treatment. This nuanced understanding and treatment modality greatly enrich the recovery experience. As a holistic facility, Summit Estate is also proud to include top-quality nutrition counseling and meal options, outdoor activities, and integrative physical wellness offerings like yoga, massage, and acupuncture.
Following inpatient treatment, those in recovery are encouraged to maintain accountability to themselves and their loved ones by enrolling in our partial hospitalization program (PHP), intensive outpatient program (IOP), or virtual outpatient program. Those who do so have much higher success rates in maintaining lasting sobriety. This is true because the return to work, family, and home can sometimes afford too great a temptation to relapse in the absence of exterior support. A qualified PHP or IOP is often just the thing to shore up the gap and ensure an effective continuum of care.
