Top Rated Painkiller Rehab for Residents of Lubbock

The use of prescription pain medication has been on the market for years for patients that are experiencing pain from preexisting medical concerns and are in need of relief after medical procedures. While the advancements in the medical world have given patients access to medication that has opened up a world of opportunities, it has also created numerous severe drug dependencies that have impacted the current opiate epidemic that the United States is facing now. When you first begin taking prescription painkillers, you are putting your trust in the medical system that has prescribed you a treatment method to open your ability to function freely throughout the day. Your use starts innocently, you are following the instructions of your doctor without knowing the dangerous side effects that can come from relying on prescription drugs. Often when you are in constant, excruciating pain you dream of being able to escape your body for even a moment to get relief from the pain you are feeling. The euphoric escape that can be felt with painkillers lures you in to give you the momentary pause from the aches and discomfort you are experiencing. This type of addiction is very hard to overcome and should be treated properly in our painkiller rehab for Lubbock residents.

You know you want to remove your dependency on painkillers but you are concerned about how you will manage your symptoms once you release yourself from your addiction. Residents of Lubbock have experienced life-changing treatment through Resurgence that provides you methods of managing your pain that release you from ties of chemical dependency and incorporate holistic measures of treatment. As you begin to embark on your comprehensive treatment plan, you will learn emotional regulation and emotional intelligence that will have you in touch with your feelings and emotional processes. Knowing how to identify and work through triggering emotions is the best relapse prevention skill you need to keep you on the path to recovery. 

Signs of Painkiller Addiction

When using prescription medications starts off as a method of pain management, the ability to know if you are becoming addicted can get blurred. You know you are in pain but you also know that you have strayed from the original use it was meant for. Knowing when it is time to reach out for help and find alternative methods to treating your pain can be challenging to decipher. 

Painkiller addiction can, in some cases, have the following signs. 

  • Slurred speech 
  • Nausea
  • Poor coordination skills 
  • Changes in body weight 
  • Needing larger quantities to get the desired effect 
  • Paranoia 
  • Euphoria 
  • Difficulty with memory 
  • Varying mood swings 
  • Depression
  • Inability to concentrate 
  • Financial troubles due to use
  • Forging prescriptions to be able to continue use 
  • High risk behavior
  • “Doctor shopping”- going to multiple doctors to get multiple prescriptions 
  • Using pills in other methods then prescribed such as snorting or injecting them 

If you or someone you love is concerned about painkiller misuse and want to learn how to manage your symptoms without dependency on medications, call our compassionate team at Resurgence to see how other residents of Lubbock have freed themselves from the constraints of addiction. 

Commonly Abused Painkillers

It’s no secret that the pharmaceutical industry has created a vast amount of options to help patients manage all levels of pain. Whether you have acute symptoms or severe, there are options to give you the relief and comfort you need in a time of need. 

It is also no surprise that these medications can create dependencies among their users leading some to be physically and emotionally dependent. When you are in pain, oftentimes, it impacts your emotional well-being. When we aren’t feeling emotionally sound and content, it leads some to look for a mental escape paired with a physical escape from their pain, this is where opioid use becomes a dangerous combination. The allure of the initial euphoric feeling, that many chases after the first high but can never get back to, leads users to increase their dosage to reach their desired level of impairment. 

The market for prescription painkillers has grown exponentially over the years. Users have options to choose from with the most commonly abused painkillers being as follows:

  • Oxycodone /Oxycontin 
  • Percocet 
  • Fentanyl 
  • Morphine 
  • Demerol 
  • Dilaudid 
  • Methadone 
  • Codeine 
  • Vicodin 

Am I Addicted to Painkillers?

You begin taking prescription medications as a way to cope with your pain. You know what you are experiencing is real but you have also noticed that your ability to manage other areas of your life has been affected. Many ask themselves if they are actually addicted to painkillers or if it is merely a way for you to cope with the pain you are feeling. If you are unsure if you are addicted, you can ask yourself the following questions. 

  1. Is my ability to maintain my work and home life commitments being affected?
  2. Am I having to use more than prescribed to get the desired effect?
  3. Has my focus shifted to only caring about taking the next dose and to reach the desired level. 
  4. Have my loved ones or other people in my life commented on my use or noticed a shift in my overall wellbeing?
  5. Am I unable to go a day without using prescription painkillers?

If you answered yes to any of these, it may be time to speak with one of your experts and explore your use with painkillers closer. Our caring team of experts wants to hear from you and will gain an understanding of your use of painkillers- what originally had you using painkillers, how your use has progressed, and your consumption patterns. Once we get to know you, we can help guide you in the right direction for intervention strategies to help you remove the binds of painkiller dependency. 

Painkiller Detox for Residents of Lubbock

The use of prescription drugs comes with a range of withdrawal symptoms; some will experience mild symptoms and others can have more severe withdrawal symptoms.  Each person will experience different withdrawal symptoms as they detox from painkillers and you won’t know how your body will react until you begin detoxing. This is why we strongly encourage residents of Lubbock to join the knowledgeable staff at Resurgence for your detoxification process. 

Our medically supervised detox will provide you with the comfort of knowing that our team is here to support you in safely tapering off of prescription painkillers. Withdrawal symptoms experienced can have physical side effects but there are also emotional withdrawal symptoms such as anxiety or depression. We will work to keep your physical and emotional symptoms at ease with the support of not only our medical team but our trauma-informed counselors. Our compassionate team is composed of individuals who have experienced what you are going through with their lived experience. Providing you a listening, empathic ear that truly understands the range of emotions you may experience and will give you the reassurance that the detox process will be done before you know it. 

The physical withdrawal symptoms have the potential to produce unpleasant feelings or discomfort. Not to worry, our team of trusted nurses and physicians is highly trained in keeping you comfortable and rested during your detox process. Should you require the use of medications that will curb the severity of withdrawal symptoms and ease your drug cravings, those will be provided to help you detox safely. 

Painkiller Rehab Treatment Programs

Stopping using prescription painkillers is the first step in your rehab program. To make a long-lasting change, we suggest that you engage in our comprehensive therapeutic methods to dig deeper into what has been driving your addictive behaviors. Yes, you had pain you were managing, but we want to explore with you what emotions and thought processes have been behind your need to abuse painkillers. 

Through our trauma-informed methods of treatment, our team of therapists will respectfully help you look within to the emotional process that occurs when you are turning to drugs to cope. Through individual and group therapy sessions, you will be able to gain an understanding of the thoughts, emotions, and behaviors that have impacted your ability to manage on your own. Our therapists use therapeutic methods of:

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) 
  • Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy (REBT) 
  • Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) 
  • Experiential Therapy 
  • EMDR 

Through these extensive therapeutic models, you and your therapist will uncover the traumas and painful memories of the past that may have influenced your addictive behaviors. Once these memories are established, a plan for how you can work through these negative emotions, thoughts, and behaviors through life skills and relapse prevention tools will have you reframing your responses. 

A key to success in recovery is building a solid recovery community around you. Addiction is often a lonely place for many. Turning your loved ones away at your greatest time of need. When you walk through the doors of our center, you will be surrounded by a community of like-minded people that all share the same goal. Live a healthy, sober life. When you prepare to complete your program, our hope is that you will have a newfound community that you can lean on even after you leave our doors. 

What Happens After Painkiller Rehab?

The transition from rehab back into your home life has its own sets of successes and challenges. You are feeling strong in your recovery and excited for what the future holds. On the other hand, you are back surrounded by the environment that fuelled your addiction. Luckily, your rehab journey doesn’t end here. You will be set up with an aftercare plan that will keep you connected to, not only our supportive counselors but to a community of supportive peers that share in the same goal of remaining sober. 

Your comprehensive aftercare plan will consist of community meetings such as 12 step and SMART recovery meetings. You will be connected with aftercare support groups that will help you debrief the challenges that have come up for you and continue to teach you skills in relapse prevention and life skills that will strengthen your success in sobriety.
