Opioid Dependence

Do you or someone you love have a problem with opioid dependence? Thelma McMillen Center for Alcohol and Drug Treatment can help assist you or your loved one through the treatment process. We have found that opioid users have unique needs in terms of triggers, use patterns and withdrawal symptoms. Opioids are any of various compounds that bind to specific receptors in the central nervous system and have analgesic (pain relieving) effects including prescription medications such as oxycodone and hydrocodone and illicit substances such as heroin.

Opioid Addiction

Opioid treatment at the Thelma McMillen Center consists of a process and education group in addition to assessment for medicated assisted treatment. Upon entry into the adult program, we conduct a comprehensive bio-psycho-social assessment if opioid abuse is identified. If so, in addition the core elements of our Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP), the patient will also receive a thorough medical evaluation to determine if Medicated Assisted Treatment (MAT) is a viable option. Once it is confirmed that the patient would benefit from special emphasis for opioid problems, they have the option of participating in an Opioid process and education group that is only open to opioid sufferers.
