North Port Inpatient Drug and Alcohol Rehab Centers

Similar to the rest of the country, North Port, FL, located in Sarasota County, has experienced the negative consequences of opioid addiction, including overdoses.

Because of this, in recent years, the Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office began providing training to its deputies, teaching them how to respond to overdoses, especially in the case of opioids.1 Since the agency began using naloxone—a medication used to reverse the effects of opioid overdoses—Sarasota deputies have administered the medicine to 123 residents.1 In 2017 alone, the Sarasota County Sheriff’s office saved 59 lives through the use of naloxone by deputies.1 

While naloxone is used to reverse the effects of opioids, there are other medications that can be used to treat addiction and withdrawal. Certain medications can be used to manage withdrawal symptoms during medical detox to keep the person comfortable and safe throughout the process.2 Keep in mind, some treatment centers offer medication, while others do not.

Medications exist that can help to treat a person’s addiction to opioids. In fact, research shows that the initial treatment for addictions to opioids—such as fentanyl, heroin, or prescription pain medication—should be medication combined with behavioral therapy.2 Unfortunately, less than half of all private treatment programs offer medications for opioid use disorders.3 Therefore, if you are searching for an opioid addiction treatment program, you’ll want to do your research and ask about what medications the program offers before committing to that rehab.

Methadone, buprenorphine, and extended-release naltrexone are all types of medications that are used to treat addiction and/or withdrawal in opioid users.2 Medication also exists to treat both nicotine and alcohol addiction. For nicotine addiction, nicotine replacement therapies like gum or patches are used. For alcohol addiction, naltrexone and disulfiram might be used.2 Presently, there are no specific treatment medications approved for those who are addicted to other types of drugs, such as stimulants or marijuana. Instead, treatment for such addictions will focus on behavioral therapy.2

In addition to managing withdrawal and treating addiction, some rehab programs are also equipped to manage co-existing mental health issues. Many individuals with substance use disorders have other mental health issues that could contribute to the addiction, such as depression or bipolar disorder. When combined with behavioral therapy and under the careful watch of medical staff, research shows that medication can be very useful in promoting a successful recovery.4
