Choosing the Best Inpatient Morphine Rehab Centers
Morphine is a very effective opioid drug but it can also be very dangerous when abused for the euphoric effects it can sometimes cause. If you have been misusing morphine and believe you will need professional addiction treatment, call 800-681-7369Who Answers? now. Inpatient care may be necessary for your safe recovery.
According to the National Library of Medicine, “Morphine is used to relieve moderate to severe pain.” It can be a helpful medication in its many forms, but unfortunately, its abuse is also rampant among opioid addicts. The drug is particularly dangerous in an overdose situation because of its high potency. If you have been struggling with a morphine addiction, the time to seek help is now.
You can get safe, effective treatment for a morphine addiction in a rehab center that offers evidence-based treatments for opioid abusers. These treatment options often include:
- Medications such as morphine, buprenorphine, or naltrexone
- Behavioral therapies such as cognitive-behavioral therapy, group therapy, and/or contingency management
- Assessments and consultations with doctors
- Drug testing and education
- HIV testing and prevention
Although this isn’t a step every individual chooses to take, inpatient rehab can be a helpful option for a safe recovery from morphine addiction. You can find out more about what type of rehab will best suit your needs by calling 800-681-7369Who Answers? and speaking to a treatment advisor today.
Choosing between inpatient and outpatient treatment for your morphine rehab is an essential part of finding the best care for your needs. Some individuals may require one or both types of treatment over the course of their recoveries, but it is important to consider which of these options is best for your needs right now. Below is a break down of inpatient care vs. outpatient care.
- Inpatient treatment offers patients 24-hour care in a controlled environment.
- Patients have round-the-clock access to a medical staff of physicians, nurses, and counselors in inpatient care.
- Most of these facilities provide additional treatment options beyond the evidence-based essentials for opioid addiction recovery.
- Usually, inpatient care takes place in a residential facility that does not provide hospitalization. Some facilities, however, do offer this option.
- Outpatient rehab centers do not allow patients to stay at the facility and instead usually offer treatment schedules that vary in intensity.
- Outpatient care is less intensive than the alternative, and many individuals choose it because it is a cheaper option.
- According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, it is important to make sure the program you choose will offer all the essentials you require for a safe recovery, as some outpatient centers “may offer little more than drug education.”
Understanding the fundamental differences between inpatient and outpatient care will help you determine whether or not the former option is right for your needs.
There are several different types of inpatient morphine rehab programs, depending on the type of treatment they provide, their costs, and other factors.
- Some inpatient morphine rehab centers offer methadone as a pharmacological treatment option. These are called inpatient methadone maintenance centers, and contrary to popular belief, they are not a way of replacing one’s morphine addiction with a methadone addiction. Instead, they provide well-rounded care that could allow you to put an end to your drug abuse.
- Inpatient buprenorphine maintenance centers also exist, and these programs utilize buprenorphine as a treatment option instead of methadone.
- Luxury inpatient centers may provide you with a number of enticing options for your recovery. These can include plush accommodations and additional, holistic treatments like massage therapy. However, many individuals cannot afford this expensive option for their recoveries and would rather not pay for it.
- On the other side of the spectrum, free inpatient morphine rehab centers exist where you can recover from your substance use disorder without paying the normally high costs of care. Usually, a spot in one of these facilities is reserved, though, for those who need it the most.
- Therapeutic communities are another type of residential rehab program, one of the most popular, in fact. These programs often provide very structured care and use the concept of resocialization to help patients bond with one another and create a strong social support system.
Because there are so many different patients with different needs, there are many types of inpatient rehab facilities. You should take all your needs into account when choosing one, even those that do not directly relate to your substance abuse disorder (NIDA).
You may still be wondering whether or not inpatient morphine rehab treatment is the best option for your needs right now. Consider these factors that could make you a good candidate for this type of treatment.
You may need inpatient care if…
- You are suffering from a comorbid mental or physical disorder.
- You do not have many friends or family members at home who can help you through your recovery.
- You have been abusing other drugs in addition to morphine, including cocaine and/or heroin.
- You have more than one type of addiction.
- You have tried to recover by seeking treatment before and were not satisfied with the level of care you received.
- Your home life is unsafe or otherwise not conducive to recovery.
- You believe you will have a hard time avoiding drug abuse while you are not in treatment.
According to the medical journal Psychiatric Quarterly, “Patients with high psychiatric severity and/or a poor social support system are predicted to have a better outcome in inpatient treatment.” In many instances, this type of care is necessary for a safe recovery, but you have to determine whether or not is the best option for you. Still, in some cases, it may be better to err on the side of caution and to choose this more intensive rehab program for the first stay of your recovery.
You should be able to spend as long as you need in residential rehab, but many of these options have specific treatment lengths. Some, especially free or low-cost programs, can be as short as 30 days while others, such as therapeutic communities, can be as long as a year. Though every patient should decide on their own treatment length with their particular rehab facility, the NIDA states that treatment should last at least 90 days to be effective, and longer options are usually even more helpful.
In truth, not everyone needs inpatient care for their morphine addiction treatment, but many do. The drug is extremely potent and similar to heroin in its makeup while it––and other opioids like it––are also highly available. It is easy for someone with a strong morphine addiction to relapse while in outpatient care because opioid drugs are so easy to obtain.
Therefore, it is important to consider your needs for a safe and effective rehab program and to ask yourself if you will require intensive care in a controlled environment, at least at first, in order to recover.
- Do you believe you will be likely to return to drug abuse while not in treatment?
- Are you suffering from any comorbid disorders that will need to be treated simultaneously with your addiction?
- Do you not have the kind of support at home that you could find in a treatment center?
- Is your home dangerous in any way to your recovery? (Ex. Is it not drug-free? Is there someone there who doesn’t want you to recover?)
If you answered yes to any of these questions, inpatient treatment may be necessary for your recovery. Though many people choose outpatient care because it is cheaper and less intensive, it is always important to seek inpatient care if you truly need it.
If you do need residential care, remember there are many ways to pay for the treatment you require without breaking the bank. Not everyone can afford luxury rehab, and there are options available for those who need this kind of intensive treatment and are also on a budget.
For example, you can pay for or cut the costs of your inpatient rehab program considerably by…
- Using your insurance plan to help you pay for treatment
- As the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration states, all insurance plans purchased through the Healthcare Marketplace will cover at least part of one’s substance abuse treatment. Most other types of plans––including those purchased through an employer or group––will as well.
- Finding free and low-cost options
- We can help you determine whether or not you may qualify for all-free or partial-free treatment.
- Finding treatment that offers a sliding-fee scale
- Some inpatient programs provide patients with the ability to pay what they can for their treatment program, an amount that will be decided upon by the facility and the individual together.
- Asking your friends and family members to help you pay for treatment
- Many people have loved ones who want to see them get help and would happy to chip in for their recovery program.
Even if you utilize all the options available to you and your treatment is still expensive, many facilities will allow you to finance the cost by paying part of it upfront and paying the rest in increments after the program ends. This can be a helpful option to allow you to find the care you need without an unbearable cost.
The process of choosing the right inpatient center for a morphine addiction can seem daunting, especially if you have never done it before. Many individuals don’t even know where to begin looking, and in this case, we’ve got your back. Call 800-681-7369Who Answers? anytime to speak with a professional treatment advisor and to learn about the options available to you for a safe, effective recovery.
- When you begin speaking with your advisor, make sure to give them any essential information that will help them determine which type of care is best for your needs. This can include:
- Your insurance plan and provider
- Your substance abuse history
- Your requirements for treatment
- Your mental and physical health history
- Your income and any other important financial factors
- After you have given your information, your treatment advisor will begin searching the directory for rehab centers that will offer the kind of care you require. They may be able to match you with more than one option. They will also give you the information you will need in order to get in touch with these facilities.
- If one option seems to be more fitting than the rest, your advisor will then help you build a plan to get into the treatment program of your choice. This will involve a step-by-step process that will make it much easier for you to transition into a safe, effective inpatient program.
Unfortunately, according to the NIDA, many people still relapse even after rehab. This is because addiction is a chronic disease similar to diabetes or asthma, and it always has the potential to flare back up. However, you can implement several factors into your post-treatment life in order to strengthen your recovery and help you avoid relapse.
- Make sure to live healthily. This means eating right and exercising regularly.
- An aftercare program, like booster sessions, 12-step group meetings, etc., can make the transition from rehab to post-rehab life easier and safer.
- Talk to others about your feelings. It is important to stay open with at least a few people in order to avoid isolating yourself.
- Remember, you can always return to addiction treatment if you believe it will be helpful to your recovery. In fact, many people do.
