Morphine Addiction Treatment Center
Sacramento Morphine Drug Rehab Center
At SequoiaMD, we understand the immense challenges a person faces when seeking treatment for opioid addiction. We do not believe that opioid addiction treatment means forcing a particular approach. It means providing tools and helping patients determine what additional resources they need, not insisting on one treatment. It means support for where they are, not judgment regarding their situation.
For patients searching for morphine addiction treatment services, we can help. Contact our opioid rehab in Sacramento today to learn more about available treatment options.
During the first appointment, you can expect that we will listen to your story and create a treatment plan with you that addresses your unique circumstances.
This includes understanding your recovery goals and developing a comprehensive plan to fit your situation. Everyone’s situation is unique, and opioid addiction treatment should not be one-size-fits-all.
How We Can Help
Understanding Morphine Addiction
Morphine is a potent opioid pain medication derived from the opium poppy plant. It is used medically to relieve severe pain, particularly after surgery or in treating chronic conditions such as cancer. Morphine works by binding to opioid receptors in the brain and spinal cord, diminishing the perception of pain.
Morphine, like other opioids, carries a risk of addiction and abuse. Opioid addiction, including morphine, has been declared a public health emergency in the United States. Opioid-involved overdose deaths rose from 21,089 in 2010 to 47,600 in 2017 and remained steady through 2019.
Access to effective medication-assisted treatment (MAT) using medications like methadone, buprenorphine, or naltrexone, is beneficial in the treatment of morphine addiction. These medications can help individuals manage cravings and withdrawal symptoms.
The SequoiaMD Difference
At SequoiaMD, we don’t just treat morphine addiction; we embark on a transformative journey with patients. Our comprehensive treatment programs are designed to address the root causes of addiction, providing patients with the tools and support needed to build a foundation for lasting sobriety.
The journey to sobriety is unique, and a treatment plan should reflect that. Our team of experienced treatment professionals creates personalized therapy sessions based on a patient’s specific challenges and goals. Through one-on-one counseling, group therapy, and experiential treatments, we empower patients to confront the underlying issues contributing to addiction.
Safety and well-being are our top priorities. Our medical team closely monitors our patients’ progress, ensuring that their treatment plan is tailored to their evolving needs. We provide medically assisted treatment when necessary, easing the discomfort of withdrawal under the supervision of experienced medical staff.
At SequoiaMD, our team possesses in-depth expertise in the intricate physical and psychological dimensions of addiction.
Our dedicated staff closely monitors patients’ progress throughout treatment, making necessary adjustments. This vigilant care not only prevents relapse but also ensures prompt addressing of emerging health concerns. It also ensures that as our patients’ needs change, treatment changes too.
The medical team at SequoiaMD offers professional advice on harm reduction techniques. Provision of sterile syringes, naloxone distribution, fentanyl testing, overdose prevention and education, including safer drug use education, and other actions that can reduce the risk of negative effects related to drug use are examples of harm reduction activities.
We recognize the profound fears individuals struggling with addiction face regarding mistreatment and judgment. At SequoiaMD, we foster a non-judgmental, accepting, and supportive atmosphere. By embracing every individual with understanding and empathy, we empower them to seek the help they need.
Our doctors collaborate with other healthcare specialists, including psychiatrists, psychologists, counselors, and social workers. This interdisciplinary teamwork creates a framework for addiction treatment, effectively addressing its multifaceted aspects.
Achieving sobriety is not just about abstaining from substances; it’s about equipping patients with the skills to lead a fulfilling life. Our life skills training programs cover essential areas such as financial management, communication skills, and stress management.
Sobriety is an ongoing journey, and we prepare patients for the road ahead. Our relapse prevention strategies teach patients how to identify triggers, cope with cravings, and build resilience against potential setbacks. By arming ourselves with effective tools and coping mechanisms, we are empowered to maintain sobriety in the face of life’s challenges.
Stopping using feels great. However, moving away from drug use you have used every day for months or years is a big change.
Medication-Assisted Treatment For Morphine Addiction
Several medications have been approved by the FDA for the treatment of opioid addiction. These medications can help individuals manage cravings and withdrawal symptoms, making the recovery process more manageable. These medications are often used as part of medication-assisted treatment (MAT) programs, which combine medication with counseling and behavioral therapies. Medication-assisted therapy has been shown to be effective in treating opioid addiction and helping individuals sustain recovery.
- Naltrexone: Naltrexone is an opioid receptor antagonist, meaning it blocks the effects of opioids in the brain. It is available in pill form (usually taken daily) or as a monthly injection called Vivitrol. Unlike methadone and buprenorphine, naltrexone does not contain opioids and is non-addictive.
- Sublocade: Sublocade, a buprenorphine injection, is used as a component of a comprehensive treatment program for opiate use disorder. The overall risks and advantages of succlocade treatment are comparable to those of other buprenorphine maintenance therapies. It does have a few significant advantages over buprenorphine oral formulations.
- Suboxone: Suboxone is a combination medication containing buprenorphine and naloxone. Buprenorphine reduces cravings and withdrawal symptoms, while naloxone discourages misuse. Suboxone is available in the form of sublingual (under the tongue) films.
- Subutex: Subutex is similar to Suboxone, but only contains buprenorphine. While naloxone makes it slightly more difficult to abuse, some people also have side effects of naloxone, such as upset stomach or headaches.
Vivitrol: The FDA has approved Vivitrol for the treatment of alcohol and opioid dependence, and it is used in conjunction with other interventions as part of an all-encompassing treatment plan. Of all the medications approved to treat opioid dependence, Vivitrol is the only one that does not cause any withdrawal when stopped. That is because Vivitrol acts on the opiate receptor as a blocker but does not activate the receptor.
As a patient moves into recovery away from an active opioid use disorder, we start working to build treatment services and plans that can fit your unique situation.
