Our Therapeutic Treatments

Therapeutic Treatments for Opioid Abuse

In addition to the medication-assisted treatment that is available for patients to utilize in the battle against opioid dependency, Rhode Island Comprehensive Treatment Centers also provide patients with the opportunity to participate in therapeutic interventions. These sessions are designed to assist patients in the effort to address and process the underlying causes of their addictive behaviors.

Helping patients understand what led them to abuse opioids in the first place is an important part of preparing them to achieve a substance-free future. Individuals who only receive treatment for the physical component of addiction place themselves at an increased risk for relapsing and returning back to the abuse of opioids. At Rhode Island Comprehensive Treatment Centers, our comprehensive treatment approach includes treatment for the physical and psychological aspects of addiction, empowering individuals to safely progress toward a future free from opioid abuse.

Our Therapeutic Interventions

Therapeutic Interventions for Opioid Abuse

The abuse of opioids such as prescription painkillers, heroin, and similar substances often occurs as an attempt to escape external factors and stressors. If these negative factors are allowed to continue, many individuals will remain trapped in the dangerous cycle of opioid addiction. The skilled and compassionate addiction treatment experts at Rhode Island Comprehensive Treatment Centers understand the complexities that are associated with opioid addiction recovery, as well as and the dangers linked to their continued use. To address these issues, the following therapeutic interventions may be incorporated into a patient’s personalized treatment plan:

  • Individual therapy
  • Group therapy

Our addiction treatment experts understand the significant challenges that accompany opioid addiction and recovery, and will determine the frequency of therapy sessions based upon each patient’s unique circumstances, strengths, needs, and treatment objectives. Individual and group therapy are designed to provide patients with a safe and supportive environment in which to openly discuss their addictive behaviors and related issues while preparing for an opioid-free future. Both types of sessions provide patients with the compassion, education, and tools that are necessary in order to progress toward recovery.

Please contact Rhode Island Comprehensive Treatment Centers today to learn more about the therapeutic interventions that we offer as well to get answers to any questions you may have about all aspects of our comprehensive treatment approach. We are here to provide individuals in need with support required in order to achieve an opioid-free future.
