Inpatient Treatment Programs

In this treatment option, the person lives on the premises of the treatment facility. There is a team of medical specialists and therapists who treat and monitor the patient throughout the stay. The duration of stay is variable depending on the patient’s condition and the duration of abuse. One of the biggest advantages of the inpatient facilities is that a patient can stay away from the stressors and trigger factors of the abuse. It is the ideal option for patients having a long duration of substance abuse. The success rates of inpatient facilities are higher than the outpatient treatment facility.

Outpatient Treatment Programs

It is reserved for people who have good health and are motivated to achieve the recovery goal. The outpatient facility is also called a ‘non-residential facility’ in which the patient stays at home and attends therapy sessions. The treatment techniques are almost similar to the inpatient program, but the intensity and duration of the program are less. People enrolled in the outpatient program can visit back their homes after attending a few hours at the treatment facility. Before selecting any rehabilitation program, there is a careful assessment of the physical and psychological conditions of the patient. After the initial assessment, a proper treatment facility is suggested to the patient.

Use of Behavioral Therapies

The behavioral and psychological interventions are an important part of the treatment program. These are targeted to replace the old habits with new habits that can prove beneficial for the recovery process. The most popular therapies include:

  • Behavioral therapy: It is designed to motivate change. The problem-solving techniques are taught to the patient. The trigger factors are also identified and the methods to effectively combat them.
  • 12 steps program: It is a long-term program. It is based on the spiritual and social techniques to treat drug addicts.
  • Motivational Incentive Program: It is based on positive reinforcement and reward therapy for encouraging the patient towards the recovery process.
  • Alternative therapy includes other therapies like equine therapy, art therapy, and wilderness therapy to treat patient’s addictions.

Aftercare Programs

These are the programs that allow long-term recovery and minimize the rate of relapse. The program consists of four main parts, counseling, individual therapy, group therapy, and support programs. Through these programs, greater accountability is ensured and a higher success rate of the treatment.

Use of Medications for the Treatment of Hydrocodone Addiction

The medications that are used for treating Hydrocodone addiction include:

  • Opioid antagonist: Naltrexone has the ability to interact with the opioid receptors and blockage the effects of opioids to decrease the euphoric effects. This results in a reduction of the intense craving. Naltrexone can be in the form of pills or injections. The addicts are often treated with long-term therapies of the drug.
  • Opioid replacement: The abrupt stoppage of Hydrocodone can have many adverse effects and complications. It is also suggested that the tapering of dose should be done gradually. The replacement therapy is given for the same purpose. Buprenorphine is frequently given during replacement therapy. These drugs carry a very low potential for abuse and addiction.

Other medicines that can be used for treating Hydrocodone addiction include Clonidine. This is very helpful to treat the symptoms like muscle ache, agitation, and anxiety. The additional medicines can also be given depending on the patient’s symptoms.

Relapse Prevention Techniques

The relapse rates of Hydrocodone are higher if the aftercare programs and relapse prevention techniques aren’t adopted. Certain techniques can help to prevent relapse rates.

The patient should continue taking the drugs which have been prescribed for the long-term therapy. The stress management techniques like exercise, yoga, and meditation should be practiced daily. Only 30 minutes each day for these activities have proven beneficial effects for the body and mind. The person should try to keep himself busy by indulging in other activities like arts, music, reading, or hiking.
