Addictions We Treat

Addiction treatment is not one-size-fits-all, and your treatment plan should not be either. That’s why it’s so important that your residential treatment center has experience and expertise in a range of addictions, as well as a focus on individualized care. That’s exactly what you’ll find at The Estate, one of the few stand-alone addiction treatment centers in the country.

Opioid Addiction Treatment

Perhaps it started with a simple prescription for pain after an injury or surgery. Perhaps your loved one thought they’d try it that one time at a party. Next thing you know, a one-time experiment or legitimate, doctor-prescribed use for opioids turned into opioid addiction. Due to the highly addictive nature of opioids, this is a scenario that has become so familiar it’s being called a national health crisis. But there is help for your loved one. We offer a different path with a nature-based approach to opioid addiction treatment. It’s a unique and powerful experience to guide your loved one through recovery.

Understanding Opioid Addiction

Opioids are a class of drugs that include illegal drugs, such as heroin, and synthetic opioids, such as fentanyl, as well as legally prescribed pain relievers, such as oxycodone (OxyContin®), hydrocodone (Vicodin®), codeine and morphine, among others.

Opioid addiction is characterized by a compulsive urge and craving to use these drugs, even after they are no longer needed medically, as well as continuing to use the drugs despite negative consequences.

Opioids change the chemistry of the brain and can cause life-threatening health issues, like the risk of overdose. In fact, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) more than 130 people in the United States die every day after overdosing on opioids.
