Opioid Addiction & Rehabilitation
Opioid addictions are a life-threatening mental health issue.
If you are reading this page, it is likely you, a family member or loved one is one of the millions of Americans who have been affected by this deadly addiction. Opioid abuse is nothing to be ashamed about. Many become addicted after being prescribed pain relief from a doctor from a minor surgery or accident. These drugs are so addicting that many who begin using the drug never quit because the withdrawal symptoms are so painful themselves, they seek to continue using because quitting the drug can seem physically impossible. If this is the case for you or a loved one, we urge you to seek information that can help right away.
In the United States an average of 115 people die from opioid overdoses every day according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Understanding why these drugs can have such a powerful grip over people’s lives is part of a long process to treat patients with a physical dependence on opioids such as OxyContin, Fentanyl and heroin. These drugs attack the nervous system and the side effects can be deadly.

Opiate withdrawal can require life-saving medical assistance.
Our treatment centers are equipped to handle full medical detox situations with short-term replacement therapy and long-term treatment options that are safe and effective. Connection 2 Recovery’s compassionate medical professionals use an evidence-based approach to opiate withdrawal treatment. Some patients require a short-term replacement therapy, using methadone to ease the drug cravings and opioid withdrawal symptoms. This medication-assisted treatment is used only when necessary to help the patient come off of heroin or prescription drugs. Methadone works to ease the addict through this difficult time. Often used in an emergency room, a dose of FDA approved naloxone can be used to nullify the opioid receptors in the brain and can be a life-saving tool when a person is in danger of a prescription drug overdose. In most states, law enforcement is behind the use of these techniques, offering criminal immunity to people who call 911 for a suspected drug overdose through Good Samaritan laws. Another life saving tool is doses of narcan nasal spray. These opioid antagonist drugs reverse the opioid receptors in the brain and can effectively alleviate the side effects of an opioid overdose.
