Opioid Treatment in Indianapolis

Landmark Recovery has the resources and experience to help you overcome an addiction to opioids. Our Indianapolis opioid treatment facility offers medical detox services and proven therapies that will teach you the skills needed for coping with stress and future urges to use.

What Are Opioids?

Opioids are a class of drugs that include prescription pain medicines (such as oxycodone, hydrocodone, morphine, and codeine), highly potent synthetic opioids like fentanyl, and illegal drugs like heroin. These powerful drugs interact with special opioid receptors in the brain to help alleviate pain and provide the user with feelings of euphoria. 1 Opioid use can cause adverse side effects such as breathing difficulties and decreased heart rate, and an overdose can quickly lead to coma and death. 2

Opioids are highly addictive drugs that change the brain in ways that hinder self-control and interfere with one’s ability to resist the urge to use. 3 Anyone who uses opioids can become addicted, and even the correct use of prescription opioids under the direction of a healthcare provider can result in dependency or addiction.

Opioid Abuse and Addiction in Indiana

Indiana is among the states hardest hit by the current opioid epidemic. Since 2003, the cumulative economic damages of opioid addiction have cost the state more than $43 billion. 4 Unfortunately, the true cost of opioid addiction in Indiana cannot be measured in dollars.

In 2018, there were 1,104 drug overdose deaths in Indiana involving opioids. 5 This included 713 deaths that involved synthetic opioids (such as fentanyl), 370 prescription opioid-involved deaths, and 311 overdose deaths related to heroin use. Indiana has also seen a dramatic increase in the number of non-fatal emergency department visits related to opioid overdose, from 1,856 in 2011 to 5,825 in 2018. 6 Opioid abuse also contributes to the spread of infectious diseases in Indiana; nearly 1 in 5 females and 1 in 7 males diagnosed with HIV attribute their infection to needle sharing and injection drug use. 7

Opioid misuse and addiction are major health issues that impact Indiana residents throughout the entire state, making the need for quality opioid treatment in Indianapolis vital. According to recent survey results:

  • 1 in 20 Indiana residents misused opioid prescription drugs during the past year 8
  • 1 in 83 Indiana college students misused prescription opioid painkillers in the past month 9
  • 1 in 137 Indiana residents suffers from an addiction to prescription opioid painkillers 8
  • 1 in 200 Indiana residents used heroin in the past year 8
  • 1 in 40 Indiana high school students has tried heroin at least once 10

Last year, nearly 12,000 individuals with an opioid addiction were treated at opioid treatment facilities in Indiana. 6 According to the Treatment Episode Data Set (TEDS), the misuse of prescription opioids was reported in nearly 20% of Indiana treatment admissions while heroin use accounted for nearly a quarter of all treatment admissions. 11

Indianapolis Opioid Treatment Center

Are you or a loved one suffering from an addiction to opioids? Landmark Recovery of Indianapolis has a team of experienced clinical specialists and dedicated counselors that can help you overcome opioid addiction. Conveniently located right off I-465, our locally based opioid treatment center is proud to provide Indianapolis opioid treatment, quality medical care and rehabilitation services.

Upon program admission, every client receives a complete evaluation and medical assessment. Trained and licensed staff will then develop a personalized treatment plan that meets your specific needs. Based on the severity of your addiction and any co-occurring mental health disorders, your opioid treatment can consist of a combination of outpatient services, partial hospitalization care, and residential programs.

Prior to starting any rehab therapy, you must first prepare your body for rehabilitation by undergoing detoxification and removing all traces of opioids from your system. Many people addicted to opioids develop a physical dependence for these drugs that will cause them to go through severe withdrawal after the discontinuation of use. The severity of symptoms usually peaks after 3 to 5 days, but some people may experience opioid withdrawal symptoms that last up to 10 days. Some of the uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms that opioids are notorious for producing include: 12

  • Muscle aches
  • Abdominal cramping
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Sweating
  • Intense cravings
  • Anxiety
  • Agitation
  • Sleep problems
  • Depression

A major benefit of Landmark Recovery’s Indianapolis opioid treatment is the opportunity to participate in a medically supervised detox program. Our trained clinicians will provide 24/7 monitoring and support to keep you safe and comfortable throughout the entire detox process. If needed, you will be given medications that can help ease cravings and minimize withdrawal symptoms.

After the successful completion of detox, you will be ready to immediately transition into our Indianapolis opioid treatment program.Our science-backed treatments utilize proven therapies like medication-assisted treatment (MAT), a comprehensive approach that addresses the needs of individuals with opioid addiction by combining the use of medications (such as methadone, buprenorphine, and naltrexone) with individual and group counseling and various behavioral therapies. Evidence-based cognitive behavioral therapies will help identify the underlying causes of your addiction and teach you the habits and behaviors needed to deal with cravings and prevent relapse. During your treatment you may also participate in support group meetings, meditation and mindfulness therapies, health and wellness education, enrichment activities, lectures, and fitness and recreational activities.
