How Can Remote Methadone Treatment Help Me?
Many people believe they can only attend methadone maintenance treatment (MMT) at an outpatient center close to their homes. But going to a remote location to attend residential MMT is a possible option, and it could be very beneficial to you. Call 800-530-0431Who Answers? to find rehab centers that can cater to your needs and help you recover from opioid addiction.
Residential Care Is a Beneficial Start to Treatment
If you have never attended professional rehab before, residential care could be extremely helpful to your overall recovery. This option is more intensive, which makes it beneficial to those in early treatment who need more help avoiding opioid abuse, managing their withdrawal symptoms, and generally working through their recoveries. Residential treatment offers:
- More treatment methods, including yoga and meditation classes, nutritional classes, vocational, educational, legal, and housing assistance, and many others (depending on the facility)
- 24-hour care under the supervision of medical professionals
- A controlled environment where patients will not have to deal with the high availability of dangerous opioids or the possibility of abusing their medication
- Access to more on-site help and recovery programs
- Treatment programs that are more beneficial to individuals with co-occurring mental disorders and/or medical conditions associated with addiction
You Can Avoid Risk Factors and Triggers
According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, “Risk for addiction is influenced by a combination of factors that include individual biology, social environment, and age or stage of development. The more risk factors an individual has, the greater the chance that taking drugs can lead to addiction.”
There is a large chance that many of these risk factors are still currently involved in your life and that being around certain people, places, and things associated with them could possibly trigger your substance abuse again. By attending treatment at a rehab center far from home, you could avoid these issues altogether while you are at your most vulnerable.
You Can Find Time for Self-reflection
Self-reflection is one of the most important aspects of recovery and addiction treatment, but for those who attend MMT close to home in a facility where they only receive treatment for several hours a day, there isn’t as much time for this kind of contemplation.
You will likely be caught up in the minutiae of your daily life just as you were before rehab, which can make it difficult to give ample time to considering your recovery and treatment. In inpatient rehab, you can find this time and allow yourself the luxury of focusing solely on yourself, which will be much better for your recovery in the long run.
Seek Residential MMT Now
According to a study from the NIDA, Dr. James Sorensen states, “‘It is not a trivial matter to incorporate methadone treatment in a residential treatment setting,’” but the results can be extremely beneficial to patients.
