Opiate Addiction Recovery

Prescription painkillers are commonly known as opiates, which are derived from opium which comes from poppy plants. Some of the most common are Codeine, Hyrdrocodone, Morphine, Oxycodone, Hydromorphone, and Fentanyl. Opioids are usually prescribed and used for treating pain and once a person develops the tolerance, they begin to want and need more to get the same effect. This is when a person can develop an addiction to opioids. Prescription opioids can lead to unpleasing symptoms and pose additional challenges due to the difficult symptoms of withdrawal that can arise in the first few days of treatment such as low energy, anxiety, hot and cold sweats, cramping, muscle aches and pains, and a runny nose.

At Bayshore Retreat, clients will receive at a minimum of 2 individual and effective addiction treatment sessions a week with our licensed mental health counselor, group counseling sessions by various professionals every evening except for the clients rest day, and Life Skills counseling which covers multiple areas such as relationships, communication, irrational thinking, etc. We believe that drug addiction is a symptom of an underlying issue(s) and this is why we put a lot of effort in aiding our clients to identify and effectively deal with those issues. Bayshore Retreat is not a 12-step program but does value the philosophy behind it. We feel that clients should not pay for this while in treatment but look into it for more of an after care option.

In addition to the effective counseling a client receives, we take the holistic approach and incorporate a well rounded diet while also providing gym time for daily exercise. At Bayshore Retreat, we also use dry sauna and deep tissue massages to help speed the healing process and reduce the amount of toxins within the body. Additional ways to handle the chronic pain that an opioid user can endure include physical therapy, acupuncture, and hypnotherapy.

When a client arrives, our medical director will address the physical with careful evaluation and order blood tests in order to determine what damage might exist due to drug abuse. In the event that a client may require a medical detox, we are able to make arrangements for the medical detox to be done at a medical site near Bayshore Retreat.

Bayshore Retreat is located on the Emerald Coast in the town of Destin, FL. This home like environment allows the limited number of clients to have their cell phones and laptops so that the client has the ability to talk to their family or take care of personal business during their stay with us. Last but not least, Bayshore Retreat is among the top 20% of addiction treatment centers as we have attained the Joint Commission Gold Seal of Approval. When a treatment facility attains the Gold Seal, it means that the facility demonstrates the highest commitment to quality and safety to patients, staff, and the community.
