Opioid Rehab in Connecticut

We understand that rehab can be tough; that’s why Landmark Recovery has developed a safe and effective rehab program to treat all our patients with the utmost care. Our goal over the next century is to save as many lives as possible, starting with you or your loved ones.

What are opioids?

Morphine is traditionally considered the gold standard in opiate analgesics. It comes from the opium poppy and has been around since 1806 when it was isolated in a lab environment. Morphine has legitimate uses as a pain relieving drug, but since 1806, it’s also been misused to a significant degree because of the desirability of the effects on those addicted to it.

Heroin is also an opioid drug in the same family as the pain relievers we commonly associate with opioid addiction. At first, it was available commercially from Bayer as a “non-addictive” alternative to cocaine, but this was quickly proven wrong; it was formally outlawed as a freely available substance in the US by the Harrison Narcotic Act of 1914.

Today, when we think of opioid addiction, we think of painkillers like oxycodone, fentanyl, hydrocodone, tramadol, codeine, or some other drug ending in -ine or -one. This is largely true, as they all work as opiate analgesics that block pain. Organically derived opioids originate from the opium poppy, which has been in cultivation for thousands of years. The synthetic/semisynthetic opioids, like fentanyl and the “codones”, are produced in labs. Fentanyl is about 100 times as powerful as morphine.

An opioid overdose happens when the breathing and heart rate are reduced to a fatal degree. Usually, respiratory arrest is the killer of overdosing individuals. Nausea and vomiting happen commonly with opiates due to the location of some of the receptors in the brain. Severe constipation can occur with opiate use, regardless of whether the drugs are being administered at proper therapeutic doses or being abused.

Opioid use in CT

Momentarily ignoring heroin usage rates in Connecticut, the pain reliever abuse levels are much higher than regular heroin usage, most likely owing itself to the readily available nature of these types of drugs (via prescriptions or illicit market purchases).

The group that suffers the most from opioid addiction in the state of Connecticut is 18- to 25-year-olds at 4.85% abusing opiates each year. For those 18 and older, 3.43% of adults in the state have abused opiate painkillers.

Opioid addiction rehab

Opioid addiction rehab can be a bit of a system shock, but Landmark Recovery is prepared to make your time with us as effective and smooth as possible. We offer inpatient, outpatient, and partial hospitalization treatment, and medication-assisted treatment for cases when an extra boost is needed to get you over the hill.

At our facilities, we offer 12-step programs like AA and NA to help maximize gains made during opioid rehab. To ensure our treatment is holistic, we also provide therapy and counseling sessions so we can treat the root causes of drug addiction. Once you graduate from our facility, you’ll get access to an alumni program with a myriad of educational resources.
