Treating Methadone Addiction

Methadone, sometimes also known as Dolophine, is a powerful opiate drug used to mitigate pain and help people get off heroin. Unfortunately, methadone addiction carries many of the same mental and physical health risks that long term heroin abuse does, and can be almost as addictive. Without the proper help, methadone addiction can lead to serious health issues, and even death. That’s why West Coast Rehab (West Coast Rehab) is has programs to help fight methadone addiction, with a range of evidence-based, proven therapies.

An End to Methadone Addiction

Methadone addiction does significant physical and mental damage for heavy users, and as a result many clients will first have to go through a medically assisted detox on site before treatment. While in detox, our residents are constantly monitored to make sure their transition is safe and comfortable. All those who stay at West Coast Rehab sleep in private rooms, and are assigned individual counselors who they do one-on-one therapy with every day. As mentioned, all treatment at West Coast Rehab is based in real science and addiction research which provides real results. Methods include CBT, Motivational Interviewing, mindfulness, relapse prevention, family therapy, and 12-step support. Finally, West Coast Rehab keeps plenty of on site staff to make sure all each clients’ needs are fully heard.
