Morphine Addiction Treatment and Rehab

Morphine Addiction Treatment and RehabAlthough it may sound counterintuitive, two opioid medications — methadone and buprenorphine — have federal approval for use in the treatment of morphine/opioid addiction. These medications won’t prolong addiction when given in proper doses. Instead, they help lessen the severity of withdrawal and steer you away from uncontrolled substance intake and other addiction-related symptoms. Once you pass through withdrawal, you may receive treatment in the form of a medication called naltrexone. This anti-opioid substance stops morphine and other opioids from reaching your brain.

When addressing opioid problems, effective substance programs join medication use with access to counseling and psychotherapy. (The term for this combined approach is medication-assisted treatment, known by the abbreviation MAT1.) The therapy used in MAT is designed to modify your behaviors and thoughts. The modifications in ways that help you recover and maintain ongoing abstinence. Two of the three proven therapies provide a benefit by enhancing your incentives for following your treatment guidelines2. A third reliable option supports your recovery by nurturing an interest in opioid-focused 12-step groups.
