Learn More About the Treatment We offer for Vicodin Abuse
Vicodin has become one of the most abused narcotic (opioid) painkillers in the United States today. This combination of hydrocodone and acetaminophen is prescribed to provide relief from moderate-to-severe pain. With use over time, individuals will develop a tolerance to Vicodin. When a tolerance to Vicodin develops, an individual requires more of the opioid narcotic to achieve the same feelings in addition to avoiding any negative withdrawal symptoms. This cycle leads to Vicodin dependency and addiction. That is when it is important to seek treatment at a Vicodin rehab center.
Vicodin is dangerous as it naturally decreases heart rate and respiration. If too much Vicodin is consumed, vital organ systems can slow down to the point of death. Fatal overdose, and other dangerous effects, are more likely if Vicodin is combined with other central nervous system depressants, such as benzodiazepines or alcohol.
The idea of living your life without Vicodin may seem impossible because you have come to rely on the narcotic for so long. We are here to tell you that you can learn to live without Vicodin and it can be a happy fulfilling life. At Blue Ridge in Georgia, we are here to help you get sober and recover from Vicodin addiction.
Types of Treatment Offered at Blue Ridge Mountain Recovery Center
Blue Ridge Mountain Recovery Center is a sub-acute detoxification and intensive residential Vicodin addiction treatment center that treats men and women 18 years of age and older who have been experiencing Vicodin abuse and potential co-occurring mental and behavioral health disorder. Located in Ball Ground, Georgia, on 40 acres of wooded countryside in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, our treatment center provides clients with the opportunity to heal in a comforting, nature-filled rehab environment.
Blue Ridge is dedicated to offering the highest quality of Vicodin abuse treatment that is designed around each unique client. We approach care for painkiller addiction from the holistic model, understanding that Vicodin addiction is a disease of the system and not simply the person. At our treatment center, we have designed rehab that draws from numerous therapeutic models and techniques consisting of a number of evidence-based treatment models.
Because each man or woman receives care that has been tailored according to his or her needs, strengths, and treatment goals, each client receives an individualized treatment plan at Blue Ridge Mountain Recovery Center. Depending on their unique needs, clients are usually placed in one of two treatment programs:
Residential Sub-acute Detoxification Treatment
In some cases, individuals who have been experiencing Vicodin addiction struggle with also being physically dependent on the painkiller. For those who meet this description, and who have had great difficulty ending the Vicodin abuse prior to entering treatment at Blue Ridge Mountain Recovery Center, we provide medically monitored detoxification services to ease the process.
At our Vicodin addiction treatment center in Georgia, we offer a full range of clinical and sub-acute medical services, including medically supervised detox, and is staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Our detoxification program begins with a complete evaluation of the client’s abuse history, current characteristics, and patterns of use. Each individual is supervised by our medical director and nursing staff to ensure safe detoxification and a more comfortable withdrawal process. Once an individual has completed detox with us, he or she can then transition directly into residential treatment to continue on the pathway to recovery for Vicodin addiction.
Clinically Managed Residential Vicodin Center
Blue Ridge is a residential treatment center that keeps recovery simple, yet logical. Residential treatment includes individual therapy, group therapy, activities designed to heighten wellness, and medical management of symptoms (as needed).
Individual Therapy: We offer a number of treatment techniques in individual therapy, including psycho-social education, cognitive-behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, music therapy, relapse prevention, relapse recovery and multiple family therapy models. Individual sessions between a client who is being treated for substance use disorder and a trained professional can provide valuable opportunities for the client to process successes and setbacks, address specific issues related to his or her recovery, and receive essential guidance and feedback.
Group Therapy: We implement groups based on three learning styles; cognitive (intellectual learning), affective (emotional learning) and skills development (“how to” learning). Our rehab is designed to engage the spiritual, emotional, mental, physical, social, legal and vocational needs of our clients helping them transform their whole person.
Medical Management of Symptoms: For clients struggling with Vicodin addiction and co-occurring psychiatric issues, medical management of mental health symptoms may be provided as needed. If our initial medical evaluation indicates that a client may benefit from medications, he or she may receive medication management services from our psychiatrists and certified registered nurse practitioners.
Family Therapy: At Blue Ridge Mountain Recovery Center, we believe that it is vital to provide education and guidance to the family and loved ones of our clients who struggle with Vicodin addiction. Our family rehab is provided, at no additional cost, to immediate family members and loved ones of clients in our residential treatment center. Approximately every three weeks, we offer family and loved ones the opportunity to participate in our two-day long family workshop. This experience seeks to include family members and loved ones in the recovery journey and provides the opportunity for family to learn more about Vicodin abuse and recovery. We also provide family sessions throughout each client’s stay as deemed appropriate by their therapist.
The Expedition– Relapse Recovery Program: “The Expedition” offered at our Vicodin addiction treatment center is our relapse recovery program which is an excursion to uncover the truth and reestablish a strong foundation in sobriety from Vicodin addiction. It is specifically designed to help those who have relapsed truly recover from their set back. This program requires the development of a personalized relapse recovery plan in which clients and their families or loved ones will:
- Complete multiple assessments, one being a relapse assessment
- Get reintroduced to relapse prevention skills
- Reestablish health boundaries and communication
- Develop an aftercare plan
- Participate in peer support activities
We structure this rehab program around the same three learning styles we utilize in our residential program; cognitive (intellectual learning), affective (emotional learning) and skills development (“how to” learning). We want to engage the spiritual, emotional, mental, physical, social, legal and vocational needs of our clients helping them transform from their relapse back into a healthy, whole person.
At Blue Ridge Mountain Recovery Center in Georgia, we understand that for individuals who are dealing with Vicodin addiction, rehab at a residential treatment center is often just one step in the long journey of recovery. To ensure that each client is best prepared to maintain and build upon the progress that he or she makes while in treatment with us, we begin planning for discharge the day the individual enters our treatment center. When a client leaves Blue Ridge Mountain Recovery Center, he or she will have a thorough plan that identifies the professional referrals, community-based organizations, and other external resources that will support his or her successful pursuit of long-term recovery.
