Who Benefits From an Opioid Drug Rehab Center?

Those who use Opioid drugs or show signs and symptoms of Opioid Use Disorder (OUD) are likely to benefit from drug rehab for Opioid addiction. Understanding signs and symptoms associated with Opioid use can help you identify a problem in yourself or a loved one and seek help. Opioid use can come with severe consequences, including death, and is known to cause a wide variety of physical, mental, and behavioral effects.


Often, those who use Opioids become increasingly private or secretive in an attempt to hide their drug use. Other signs of Opioid addiction can include but aren't limited to:

  • Cravings or a strong urge to use Opioid drugs
  • Stealing, lying, forging prescriptions, or "doctor shopping" to obtain prescription Opioids
  • Spending a large portion of time obtaining, using, or recovering from the effects of Opioid drugs
  • Using larger amounts of Opioid drugs than intended, or taking them for a longer time period than intended
  • Trouble fulfilling responsibilities at work, school, home, or other important areas of life due to Opioid use
  • Needing higher amounts of Opioid drugs than before to achieve desired effects
  • Experiencing withdrawal symptoms or taking Opioids to relieve or avoid symptoms of Opioid withdrawal 
  • Continuing to use Opioid drugs despite continuous interpersonal or social problems
  • Continuing to use Opioid drugs despite negative physical or mental health effects 
  • Giving up or reducing activities one previously enjoyed due to Opioid use
  • Using Opioid drugs in dangerous situations (e.g., when driving)
  • Legal consequences

Since Opioids can take different forms, from Heroin or Fentanyl to prescription drugs like Oxycodone or Percocet, individuals misusing Opioids may leave various forms of paraphernalia around the home. This is another potential sign to look out for.


During 2017-2019, it is estimated that approximately 51,000 individuals abused heroin in Florida. Heroin is considered an opioid; however, it is often cut with other substances, including fentanyl and cocaine. Similar to individuals who abuse other opioids, detox programs are often recommended to ensure that there are no complications from the withdrawal process. While there is no singular symptom to be concerned about, the concern lies with the combination of symptoms that can cause severe dehydration. 

South Florida substance abuse treatment programs that can be beneficial include residential rehab programs, partial hospitalization programs, intensive outpatient programming, aftercare, and dual-diagnosis treatment. Medication-assisted treatment can provide support to individuals throughout the stages of their recovery.

Forms of Drug Rehab for Opioid Addiction

Behavioral therapies are valuable in helping people who have experienced Opioid Use Disorder and other addictions. Whether you enter a residential inpatient, partial hospitalization, or outpatient program, you will typically engage in multiple therapies, recreation, and other activities. Sometimes, medically assisted treatment (MAT) will be prescribed as part of your treatment if that is something you decide on with a member of your care team. You’ll work with your treatment team at most treatment centers to determine a personalized treatment plan. 

Residential inpatient

When a client attends residential treatment for Opioid addiction, they eat, sleep, and live at the treatment facility for the duration of their care. Residential inpatient allows you to focus on your recovery in a supportive environment, attend multiple therapies (often, individual, group, and family therapy), engage in reaction activities, and get intensive care from a complete range of treatment staff. Residential inpatient treatment can be ideal for those facing substance abuse because it provides 24/7 supervision and support while temporarily removing you from your current daily life. The length of an inpatient stay can vary, but most people stay in residential treatment settings for around one to three months. 


The main difference between residential inpatient and outpatient treatment is that clients live outside of their treatment facility when receiving outpatient care. In outpatient treatment for Opioid misuse, clients generally engage in groups and individual therapy, working with a team of treatment professionals and getting to know other clients for roughly twenty hours per week or less. Many people step down to outpatient care after residential inpatient to help them transition into life outside of a treatment center, though some people choose to start with an outpatient program of some kind. 

Partial hospitalization

Partial hospitalization programs (PHP) for Opioid use and other concerns are similar to other outpatient programs in the sense that they allow you to sleep outside of facilities. However, PHP provides a higher level of support than standard outpatient or intensive outpatient care and usually requires a time commitment of around twenty hours or more per week. Our partial hospitalization programs offer high levels of support, requiring clients to attend care five days per week for six to eight hours per day. 

Dual diagnosis

It is very common for people with Opioid addiction to live with at least one additional mental health disorder, such as anxiety, bipolar disorder, personality disorders, or depression. Dual diagnosis is a term used to indicate the presence of any substance use disorder and at least one other mental health diagnosis. Dual diagnosis treatment works to address all or both concerns at once for overall well-being and is life-changing for many clients. It can be applied in any treatment setting. 


Detoxification programs are designed to help a person endure drug and alcohol withdrawals safely with medical staff present. Since getting off of substances can be uncomfortable and even dangerous at times, attending a detoxification program can be necessary and valuable for clients.
