Choosing the Best Inpatient Oxymorphone Rehab Centers
Oxymorphone (also known by the brand name Opana) is an opioid drug normally used to treat pain. While it can be effective for this purpose––and safe when taken as prescribed––those who abuse it can quickly become addicted. When this occurs, addiction treatment in a professional rehab facility is normally a necessary option.

According to the Drug Enforcement Administration, “Oxymorphone… is a potent schedule II opioid analgesic drug with an abuse liability similar to morphine and other schedule II opioids.” It is an effective treatment medication for those with moderate to severe pain, but unfortunately, this high abuse potential has caused it to often be diverted to the black market. Many individuals misuse it without a prescription while others begin taking it as a medication and end up addicted.
If you have been misusing your or someone else’s prescription to oxymorphone for more than a few months, you are likely already addicted. However, finding the right treatment program can be difficult, as is knowing what type of treatment will best suit your needs. Inpatient care can often be a safe and successful option for many individuals, and it could be helpful to your recovery from your substance use disorder.
The best place to find treatment for an opioid addiction syndrome is in a professional rehab center. According to the National Library of Medicine, the nonmedical use of opioid drugs has become a serious issue in the country today, and this means drugs of this type are highly available for abuse. As such, one of the best ways you can ensure a safe recovery is to seek it in a professional treatment facility.
Rehab centers for oxymorphone addiction often provide the general, evidence-based treatments understood to be the most effective for one’s recovery from this syndrome, including:
- Maintenance medications like methadone or buprenorphine
- Medically assisted detox as an alternative to medication
- Behavioral therapy programs like contingency management and cognitive-behavioral therapy
- Drug testing and education
- HIV prevention and testing
- Social, professional, and housing counseling in order to help you function better when you are not in treatment
These options may vary from facility to facility, but in general, they are considered the most effective treatment methods for opioid addiction. Still, every program can be a bit different, which is why choosing the option that best suits your needs is vital to an effective recovery.
Inpatient and outpatient care are two of the main types of oxymorphone rehab programs. It is important to determine the differences between these two options as well as which type of program will best suit your needs.
- Inpatient centers offer 24-hour care. They are controlled environments where patients are not able to engage in their daily routines, but because of this, they are often a safer, more intensive option for treatment. They usually employ additional treatment methods beyond the evidence-based practices listed above, and in most cases, patients are allowed to have visiting hours where their friends and family members can come see them.
- Outpatient centers do not offer 24-hour care, though most will provide the normal, evidence-based practices for treatment. Many opioid addiction rehab centers are outpatient-based and dispense methadone, but this treatment option can also lack the type of individualized and intensive care some patients need. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, this treatment option usually costs less than inpatient care.
If you believe inpatient treatment may be a better option for you, it is also important to consider the types of inpatient oxymorphone rehab and how a specific facility could be more or less effective for your needs.
- Residential centers: These are considered to be the common type of inpatient facilities. They provide 24-hour care in a non-hospital-based facility.
- Hospital-based inpatient centers: Those who are suffering from severe addictions or other serious syndromes may actually choose to receive care in a hospital-based facility, although most residential centers do not offer this option.
- Inpatient methadone maintenance centers: Though many methadone maintenance facilities are outpatient-based, some can provide inpatient care to patients who need it.
- Free inpatient centers: There are rehab facilities that provide inpatient care for either no or a very little cost. In fact, free programs are sometimes more likely to offer residential care to patients who need it than costly facilities.
- Luxury inpatient centers: Certain inpatient centers provide care in hotel-like accommodations to those who can afford it. This option can be very relaxing but is not necessary to a safe recovery.
- Religious inpatient centers: Some facilities, usually those run by nonprofit organizations, provide spiritual help in addition to the general, evidence-based practices for addiction treatment. This may be an effective option for you if your religious journey is a driving force in your recovery.
Though some of these treatment options can overlap, these are the main types of inpatient rehab centers where you can begin your oxymorphone addiction recovery.
Not everyone requires inpatient care for an oxymorphone addiction. The drug does not cause a life-threatening withdrawal syndrome, and many people prefer to attend a less intensive rehab program where they can still see their families every day. However, this option may be effective for you based on the following criteria:
- You are looking for a more intensive rehab program.
- You have never sought treatment for your oxymorphone addiction.
- You tried less intensive options for treatment and were not satisfied with the results.
- You do not have friends or family members at home who can look after you while you are not in treatment.
- Your home life is dangerous or otherwise not conducive to recovery.
- You are suffering from a comorbid mental or physical disorder that will make it harder for you to overcome your opioid addiction.
If any of these situations mirror your own, oxymorphone rehab may be a suitable option for your recovery. However, if they do not and you still believe this option could be right for you, it is important to stay true to your needs and to seek out the program you believe will be most helpful to you.

Depending on your needs and the type of program you choose, you may be in residential treatment for as little as 30 days or as long as a year. Short-term inpatient programs, especially like the type provided by free rehab centers, are often based on the Minnesota Model, which maintains that patients only require about a month to become stabilized in their recoveries while long-term inpatient programs often want to treat every aspect of your life in recovery, which can take a long time.
In general, though, 90 days is considered to be the minimum amount of time a person should stay in addiction treatment, whether in an inpatient or outpatient program. If you do choose a shorter option, make sure there is an aftercare program set up for you once you leave the facility.
As stated previously, many people can recover from an oxymorphone addiction syndrome with only the help of an outpatient treatment facility. However, some individuals really do need inpatient care in order to safely recover, and there is a possibility you could require this type of treatment. Ask yourself the questions below to find out:
- Are you suffering from any comorbid mental disorders?
- According to a study in Psychiatric Quarterly, a “high psychiatric severity” can require inpatient care. Most individuals who are suffering from a comorbid mental disorder like depression will require this type of treatment in order to be simultaneously treated for both disorders.
- Do you lack a strong social support system at home?
- Not having people to protect and support you while you are in treatment can make you more vulnerable to relapse. In addition, if you choose inpatient care, the doctors, nurses, counselors, and even the other patients at the facility can become a support system for you at the time when you will need it the most.
- Is your home environment in any way dangerous or not conducive to your recovery?
- If your environment isn’t drug-free or if someone there is trying to hurt you, it will not be a safe or effective space in which you can recover. Therefore, you may want to seek treatment in a rehab center that can provide you with a safe, controlled environment.
Your inpatient treatment program need not be more expensive than you can afford. In fact, there are many options that can make paying for oxymorphone addiction treatment easier.
- Insurance: Your insurance plan will probably cover at least part of your addiction treatment program. According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, mental health and substance use disorders are now listed as essential health benefits, which means every insurance plan sold through the Healthcare Marketplace must cover them and most privately obtained insurance plans will as well.
- Free and low-cost inpatient care: Some rehab facilities really do offer free care to those with certain factors that prevent them from being able to pay for treatment, including a low income or a large family to support.
- Financing: Paying for your treatment program can be much easier if you choose to finance your care. If the facility of your choice will allow you, you may be able to pay for your program in increments instead of all at once, making it much easier on your budget to seek professional rehab.

After rehab, your life shouldn’t automatically go “back to normal.” Instead, if you want to stay safe and continue to live a drug-free life, you may have to utilize a number of different strategies to keep your recovery strong.
- Attending an outpatient program after inpatient care ends is a great way to continue learning ways to stay strong in your recovery. According to the American Journal of Drug and Alcohol Abuse, most individuals need a treatment regimen that utilizes both options over the course of their recovery.
- Aftercare options also exist where you can receive less intensive treatment or recovery help after an inpatient program. These can include
- Booster sessions
- Sober living homes
- 12-step meetings
- Talk to your loved ones when you are struggling in your recovery or if you believe you might relapse. It is important to reach out to others during your post-rehab life.
- You may choose to attend another treatment program later in your recovery. Most people who do so believe continuous, professional care can make life in recovery easier because of the benefits multiple treatment options can provide.
