Choosing the Best Inpatient Opana Rehab Centers
Opana is a brand name, opioid medication containing the drug oxymorphone. It is effective at treating pain, but its abuse can lead to serious side effects, chief among them being addiction. If you have been misusing Opana in order to experience its euphoric effects, you may already be addicted to the drug.

According to the Drug Enforcement Administration, “Oxymorphone is a potent schedule II analgesic drug with an abuse liability similar to morphine and other schedule II opioids.” One of the most popular brand name versions of this drug is Opana. It is prescribed in both regular and extended-release forms and is often utilized to treat moderate to severe pain.
Many individuals who begin taking the medication feel good when they do so because opioids can cause euphoria when taken at high doses. However, taking your medication more often, in larger doses, or in a different way than prescribed is considered abuse and can lead to severe effects. Some people even take the drug longer than they should have or take it without a prescription at all.
If you have been consistently engaging in any of these behaviors, it is likely that you have become––or will soon become––addicted to Opana and opioid drugs in general. Professional treatment is the only safe and effective way to recover from this issue, and because every patient is different, there are many different types of treatment programs for opioid addiction.
Some individuals go to their doctors for help getting weaned off Opana and other opioids while others may see a psychiatrist in order to get to the root of their substance abuse problem. But for the most part, the safest way to recover from an opioid addiction is in a rehab treatment center. This is because these facilities offer both evidence-based practices for recovery: behavioral therapy and medication.
According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, the combination of medications and behavioral therapies is often the most successful way to help an addict overcome their substance use disorder. These facilities offer this kind of care in addition to:
- Individualized treatment plans
- The ability to work one-on-one with healthcare professionals like doctors, nurses, and counselors
- A safe environment for recovery
- Community connection and involvement in order to strengthen your social support network
While there are many types of rehab centers––and treatment programs within these facilities––the main distinction between programs is usually whether they are inpatient- or outpatient-based. Though there have been theories in the past that there is no “justification” for inpatient treatment, a study in the medical journal Psychiatric Quarterly highlights the benefits of both options.
- Inpatient rehab programs offer 24-hour care to patients. While these facilities are usually residential and do not offer hospital-based care, some provide this more intensive option, which a select few may need. If you choose inpatient treatment, you will have access to
- Outpatient rehab programs do not offer 24-hour care but will usually provide all the usual treatment options to patients, including behavioral therapy and medication. Some outpatient centers can be very sparse, however, so it is important to be aware of what type of treatment the program you are choosing will offer.
Most patients will need both these types of treatment programs during their recoveries, but everyone is different. As such, it is important for you to determine which type of care will be best for your needs right now. Call 800-681-7369Who Answers? today for help.
There are several different types of rehab programs you can attend for an Opana addiction syndrome. It is important to understand the options available to you in order to choose the best fit for your recovery.
- Long-term residential Opana rehab: According to the NIDA, the best-known long-term residential treatment model is the therapeutic community (TC), with planned lengths of stay of between 6 and 12 months.” These long-term rehab centers usually offer highly structured care that focuses on the many aspects of one’s full recovery.
- Short-term residential Opana rehab: On the other side of the spectrum, there are some rehab facilities that provide programs only lasting for 30 days or so. These are more focused on stabilization and detox.
- Luxury residential Opana rehab: Some facilities offer expensive treatment and accommodations to those who can afford it. While this type of care is not necessary for a well-rounded recovery, it can make the process of treatment easier and more relaxing.
- Free and low-cost residential Opana rehab: If you are concerned about your budget and whether or not you will be able to afford residential care, worry no more. There actually are many low-cost and even completely free options available to recovering individuals who need intensive, inpatient treatment.
- Methadone maintenance Opana rehab: Though most methadone maintenance programs are outpatient-based, there are some facilities that provide this treatment option to patients in a residential setting.
Many of these types of facilities overlap as well, as you can often find luxury, short-term or long-term rehab, and according to the NIDA, a recent study has supported the use of methadone in therapeutic communities.
Inpatient treatment for Opana rehab may or may not be right for you right now, but it is still very important to consider whether or not this kind of care could be helpful to your recovery. Because everyone’s addiction syndrome and situation is different, you must consider your own needs as a potential patient and what type of care will best suit them rather than simply attending a rehab program because it is cheaper, easier, etc.
Many people feel pressured to skip the option of residential addiction treatment. Instead, you must be very honest with yourself in order to make the safest choice for your recovery and to consider whether or not the options normally associated with inpatient care seem to fit your needs as a recovering addict.
Different inpatient centers have different program lengths. These can usually vary between:
- 28 days
- 30 days
- 3 months/90 days
- 6 months
- 1 year
For example, short-term inpatient care usually lasts about a month because of the continuing popularity of the Minnesota Model, which promoted a “28-day inpatient setting” (Journal of Addictive Diseases). Long-term, and especially residential methadone maintenance treatment, often lasts much longer. The length of time you will spend in residential treatment will depend heavily on your needs as a patient, the rehab center you choose, and the individualized treatment plan you create with your doctor.
While not everyone needs to attend inpatient care for an Opana addiction, there are some situations that desperately call for this type of treatment. Residential rehab may be essential to your safety if you…
- Are suffering from a comorbid mental disorder like depression
- Lack a strong support system of friends and family members at home
- Do not have a safe home environment
- Do not have a drug-free home environment or otherwise one that is conducive to your recovery
- Are suffering from polydrug addictions
- Will not be able to avoid relapse when and if you are left alone
The withdrawal syndrome associated with opioid addiction is usually not life threatening, but it can be so painful that many patients relapse in order to make this discomfort stop. As such, you will need to have a group of friends and family members who can look after you while you are not in treatment if you choose outpatient care, and even if you have this extra help, you may still be alone from time to time. If you are unable to avoid relapse in this case, inpatient care will often be necessary.
Paying for professional addiction treatment doesn’t have to be as difficult as it sounds. You can find affordable care for your Opana addiction syndrome in many ways, and there are also options to make your out-of-pocket costs even lower.
- There are low-cost and even free residential rehab programs where patients with financial problems can get help, as stated above. Usually, these facilities will only take individuals with low incomes or severe monetary issues, though, so it is important to have your information ready when contacting them.
- You should be able to use your insurance plan to pay for at least part of your treatment program. According to the S. Department of Health and Human Services, “The Affordable Care Act provides one of the largest expansions of mental health and substance use disorder overage in a generation, by requiring that most individual and small employer health insurance plans… cover mental health and substance use disorder services.”
- Sometimes, the costs of treatment are still high, but many rehab centers will allow you to finance the amount you have to pay. You can normally pay a certain amount upfront and then the rest later, and in smaller increments, once you are back on your feet.

You may not have thought beyond getting into a rehab program and focusing on your recovery, but it is also important to understand that rehab isn’t a cure-all for addiction. In fact, according to the NIDA, addiction is a chronic disease, and more than one treatment option may be necessary over the course of one’s recovery to manage the disorder.
After rehab ends, you may choose to attend another treatment program or an aftercare option like support group meetings or booster sessions. Whatever you choose to do, making sure it is always in the best interest of your health and your general recovery is very important, especially early on in your post-rehab life. Yes, things will eventually start to go back to normal, but it is essential to always protect your recovery and to stay drug-free.
We want to help you find the rehab program that will best suit your needs, and in many cases, especially early on in recovery, an inpatient Opana rehab center is usually that essential option. But finding the right rehab facility and making a plan to begin treatment can be difficult, so leave that to us.
