The majority of patients struggling with opioid use disorder are most interested in and best served by medication-assisted treatment modalities in combination with biopsychosocial clinical services. Though the success rate is typically very low, Sunrise does offer a counseling-only program, too. Patients interested in a counseling-only experience may be earlier in their disease process and not require the support of medication to get them into recovery. Others may have tried medicated-assisted treatment previously and had a negative experience. Some patients may struggle to appropriately self-administer treatment medications and not qualify for ongoing medication assistance or have access to alternative medication formulations. A few patients will pursue inpatient treatment or residential care first before transitioning to an outpatient program, and a number of those programs do not initiate medication-assisted treatment as part of or after their detoxification process. With that, patients coming from those settings may try to continue treatment without medication. Sunrise's counseling-only approach would include individual counseling with or without intensive outpatient group counseling. In either scenario, participation in additional community-based recovery groups and connecting with sponsors and other peer supports would be encouraged.

Medications and Treatments Used For Opioid Drug Abuse Treatment

Medications and treatments play a crucial role in addressing opioid drug abuse, offering effective options for individuals seeking recovery. Commonly used medications include Suboxone™ (buprenorphine/naloxone), buprenorphine-only, long-acting buprenorphine, Vivitrol™, methadone, and Narcan™.


Sunrise primarily provides maintenance treatment with buprenorphine products in a chronic disease model of care for patients struggling with opioid use disorder. However, Sunrise can also provide short-term detoxification utilizing buprenorphine products over a period of 4-8 weeks on a case-by-case basis. The following are a few examples of such situations that may warrant short-term detoxification:

Frequently Asked Questions


What is drug rehab?

Drug rehab, short for drug rehabilitation, is a program or facility that provides professional help and support to individuals struggling with substance abuse. Its ultimate goal is to help individuals overcome their addiction and achieve long-term recovery and a substance-free life. Rehab programs typically involve a combination of therapeutic interventions, medical detoxification, counseling, support groups, education, and aftercare planning. These programs are designed to address the physical, psychological, and social aspects of drug addiction in order to help individuals break free from their addictive behaviors and develop healthier coping mechanisms.


How do you help a person who has a drug addiction?

Helping a person with drug addiction can be a complex and challenging process, but there are several ways to provide support. Firstly, it is important to approach them with empathy and understanding, avoiding judgment or criticism. Encourage them to seek professional help from addiction specialists or therapists who can offer treatment options such as counseling, family therapy, medication, or rehabilitation programs. Family therapy can be beneficial to both family members and the individual with an addiction, as it can provide an avenue for safe, constructive, and healthy communication while promoting recovery.

Offering emotional support, such as being available to listen or providing a safe and non-enabling environment, can also make a difference. Encouraging healthy coping mechanisms, such as exercise or engaging in hobbies, and assisting in finding support groups or community resources can further aid in their recovery journey. It is crucial to remember that addiction recovery is a continuous process, and supporting their long-term commitment, even during relapses, can be instrumental in their recovery success.


How long is rehab?

The duration of rehab depends on various factors, including the individual's specific needs and circumstances, as well as the type of treatment program chosen. Generally, rehab programs can range from a few weeks to several months. Some short-term programs might last for 30 days, while others can extend up to 90 days or longer. Additionally, outpatient programs and aftercare services may be recommended as a transitional phase to continue support and maintain sobriety even after the completion of an initial rehab program. Ultimately, the length of rehab should be determined based on the individual's progress, goals, and recommendations from healthcare professionals.


What is the cost of rehab?

The cost of rehab can vary significantly depending on factors such as the type of drug addiction treatment program, duration of stay, amenities offered, location, and whether it is an inpatient or outpatient facility. On average, outpatient programs can cost between $1,000 and $10,000, while inpatient rehab programs can range from $5,000 to $50,000 or more per month. Insurance coverage can also play a significant role in reducing the cost of rehab, as many insurance plans provide some level of coverage for substance abuse treatment. It is essential to contact individual rehab centers and insurance providers to get accurate cost estimates and determine the best financial options available. There are no out-of-pocket expenses for Ohio Medicaid members.
