Comparing Treatments

Compare the different drug treatment programs

Most people think that there is only one form of “rehab.” This couldn’t be further from the truth. There are many different programs that are designed to help people suffering from drug addiction. Below, we lay out the most common of these options, and list many of the traits that make them unique.

Any complete program should have three primary components. Biological, Psychological, and Social, or biopsychosocial model (abbreviated “BPS”). The first must be dealt with to accomplish the others, being the Biological – the successful physical break from the undesired substance. The other components really deal with emotional triggers that led to the continued addiction and inability to operate in normal social environments without being uncomfortable. This will involve some sort of analysis to develop an after care plan and may include counseling and therapy to manage and on-going recovery process. A complete program should also include a sentinel effect (monitoring is normally done for any serious illness or medical condition) of each individuals situation to aid in continued protection from withdrawal and relapse.

Different programs to manage substance abuse, but one has the best record for success.

While there are many paths you can take towards recovery, we believe that IOOT, is your best option for success and the first step toward a life free from opiates. We invite you to read on, investigate the options. Search the Internet for the different success rates of the various program types.

Clarity – Intensive Outpatient Opiate Treatment IOOT™

Withdrawal:

Procedure utilizes an opiate blocker to stop withdrawal symptoms. The unique process accomplishes Naltrexone (antagonist) (opiate blocker) saturation in hours without a lengthy period of opiate abstinence or use of staged ramp down with alternative opiates. Naltrexone delivery forms to maximize compliance and the rapid saturation include IV, biodegradable implant, and IM injection. The use of Naltrexone in multiple forms is a primary key to the success of the Intensive Outpatient Opiate Treatment (IOOT™) program.

Utilize an Opiate Blocker?:

Yes.

Regularly Utilize Substitute Opiates?

N/A

Post-Withdrawal Treatment:

IOOT TM is a zero tolerance solution to allow the individual suffering from a chronic medical condition to quickly (72 hours) return to the origination environment, be it work, service, school, or home, opiate and craving free with long term protection from relapse facilitated by technology based follow up care, traditional community support, and primarily, medically assisted medication that blocks opiate effects (euphoria). Clarity Continuing Care provides on-going support for up to a full year post treatment. Clarity Continuing Care provides referrals for counseling and treatment programs in the client’s hometown, along with options for our web-based counseling and support sessions.

Insurance or Financing Options:

Clarity is covered by most forms of insurance. Several financing options also exist for our program. Please refer to our financing page for more information.

Success Rate:

80% of Clarity patients reported being clean a year after treatment. The on-going doses of Naltrexone, continued therapy, counseling, community, and family support are the primary reasons for this success. The clients who have relapsed on opiates typically declined their Naltrexone therapy as well as their After Care plan. A small number of clients who were unsuccessful have returned for re-treatment and have since remained clean after re-committing themselves to the Naltrexone therapy and their individualized After Care plan.

Cold Turkey

Withdrawal:

Up to 9 months. Cold turkey has a very low success rate because the withdrawal tends to be quite severe. The length of time is somewhat determined by the drug involved. Heroin is a more natural and sloppier opiate delivery mechanism, so it’s also typically easier during detox. Opiates that were created in a lab, like Suboxone, Vicodin, or OxyCodone, were chemically tailored to target your receptors. They’re like snipers for your opiate receptors. This also makes for a more difficult withdrawal.

Please Note: Quitting opiates cold turkey may also be medically dangerous. Dehydration and cardiac stress are common complications from this form of detox and should be monitored by a medical professional. Additional risk is introduced to the detox process when the sufferer attempts to self-medicate without the benefit of medical supervision which often leads to many other life-threatening consequences.

Utilize an Opiate Blocker?:

No.

Regularly Utilize Substitute Opiates?

No.

Post-Withdrawal Treatment:

Most people who attempt to give up a physical addiction to opiates cold turkey will not seek additional help and they rarely address the behaviors and emotional needs that first led to substance abuse problem.

Insurance or Financing Options:

N/A

Success Rate:

3-5% The horrible withdrawal symptoms alone are typically enough to cause relapse. Most cold turkey quitters only make it to about day four or day five, when the withdrawal symptoms begin to become unbearable.

Basic Outpatient Counseling

Withdrawal:

Basic Outpatient assumes that the patient is no longer physically addicted. Patients who enter this type of program in withdrawal may be referred to another facility for treatment.

Utilize an Opiate Blocker?:

No.

Regularly Utilize Substitute Opiates?

Yes. Many addicts are transitioned to what are called “harm reducing*” controlled substances like Methadone and Suboxone. These substitutes are designed to keep withdrawal and cravings in check, but without the “high” associated with regular opiate drug abuse. The drawback is that the patient is still physically addicted, and must still regularly receive doses of their new controlled substances to avoid withdrawal, but with the added bonus of government tracking and control of the supply. Clarity clients will not participate in substitute opiate programs after treatment.

Post-Withdrawal Treatment:

This is one of the lowest levels of care that might be covered by health insurance. It allows for a weekly session with a drug abuse counselor who will work to give the recovering addict the tolls necessary to avoid relapse.

Insurance or Financing Options:

Often this is the bottom rung of what health insurance providers will cover. Can be covered by private pay, but most private payers will elect for a more comprehensive counseling program.

Success Rate:

3-5% (without prior treatment with Clarity™) It is a commonly-held belief among drug counselors that this form of therapy works by slowly chipping away at addiction behavior. Most patients will relapse, but the counselors hope that the patient will retain a few “nuggets of truth” that will help get them back to detox more quickly, and eventually, hopefully, stay clean.
Basic Outpatient Counseling may be a part of the individualized Clarity™ After Care plan. Treatment with Clarity™ prior to entering one of these programs, along with the three, six, or 12-month Naltrexone treatment schedule greatly increases the efficacy of this type of program.

Intensive Out-Patient (IOP)

Withdrawal:

Like Basic Outpatient, IOP assumes that the patient is no longer physically addicted. Patients who enter this type of program in withdrawal will be referred to another facility for detox.

Utilize an Opiate Blocker?:

No.

Regularly Utilize Substitute Opiates?

Yes. Many addicts are transitioned to what are called “harm reducing*” controlled substances like Methadone and Suboxone. These substitutes are designed to keep withdrawal and cravings in check, but without the “high” associated with regular opiate drug abuse. The drawback is that the patient is still physically addicted, and must still regularly receive doses of their new controlled substances to avoid withdrawal, but with the added bonus of government tracking and control of the supply. Clarity clients will not participate in substitute opiate programs after treatment.

Post-Withdrawal Treatment:

IOP is one of the most common post-addiction methodologies. It involves regular meetings with drug addiction specialists three days per week, often three hours at a time, utilizing both individual and group therapy. IOP is one of the options that may be recommended by Clarity staff for post-detox treatment.

Insurance or Financing Options:

Most health insurance plans will cover some form of IOP. Check with your insurance provider to determine your eligibility. Can also be covered by private pay.

Success Rate:

10-15% (without prior treatment with Clarity™) IOP is rarely successful on its own. Patients who managed their own detox are likely still within withdrawal and are much “weaker” in constitution than those who have finished with withdrawal phase.
An Intensive Out-Patient program may be a part of the individualized Clarity™ After Care plan. Treatment with Clarity™ prior to entering one of these programs, along with the three, six, or 12-month Naltrexone treatment schedule greatly increases the efficacy of this type of program.

Short-term Residential Treatment Programs

Withdrawal:

Residential treatment programs fit into two categories: Long and short-term. Short-term residential treatment programs last from 1-14 days and are mostly used for managing detox. Most feature 24-hour medical care and use different medically proven techniques to manage the withdrawal process. The longer the treatment process, the greater the odds that the facility will help you get a jump-start on the counseling and therapy process needed to boost your odds of success.

Utilize an Opiate Blocker?:

No.

Regularly Utilize Substitute Opiates?

Yes. Many addicts are transitioned to what are called “harm reducing*” controlled substances like Methadone and Suboxone. These substitutes are designed to keep withdrawal and cravings in check, but without the “high” associated with regular opiate drug abuse. The drawback is that the patient is still physically addicted, and must still regularly receive doses of their new controlled substances to avoid withdrawal, but with the added bonus of government tracking and control of the supply. Clarity clients will not participate in substitute opiate programs after treatment.

Post-Withdrawal Treatment:

Residential treatment programs first focus on detox, but then will quickly shift to counseling and therapy. For the duration of the stay, they will feature medical treatment of withdrawal symptoms, and group and individual therapy sessions until you can be transitioned to an IOP or Basic Outpatient counseling program. Residential treatment facilities will often also include AA or NA meetings in-house.

Insurance or Financing Options:

Many health insurers will cover short-term residential care. The variability of these programs however, is entirely insurer driven. Most residential treatment facilities would prefer to keep patients for 28 days or more to have a better chance at making an impact with the patient. Check with your insurance provider to determine your eligibility. Can also be covered by private pay.

Success Rate:

15-20%. The best short-term residential treatment options are still not as effective as they could be with the use of an opiate blocker in place. Common theory is that while you’re in the facility, you’re away from the negative influences in your life. The stressors that would cause you to relapse, along with the access to supply, have been temporarily curtailed. Upon release from these facilities, it is up to a strong will to stay clean and a strong support system to ensure success. If any of these is missing, failure is eminent.

Long-term Residential Treatment Programs

Withdrawal:

Residential treatment programs fit into two categories: Long and short-term. Long-term residential treatment programs last from 28 days to 6 months or more. Some long-term programs can last an entire year. Most feature 24-hour medical care and use different medically proven techniques to manage the withdrawal process. The extended stay is used to help the recovering addict to focus on changing their emotional attitudes towards drugs and the triggers that caused them to abuse drugs in the first place. Long-term programs will often have work components, designed to boost self-esteem and a sense of accomplishment. These activities, mixed with a regular counseling and therapy regimen, meetings, and random drug tests help to keep addicts clean for the duration of their stay.

Utilize an Opiate Blocker?:

No.

Regularly Utilize Substitute Opiates?

Yes. Many addicts are transitioned to what are called “harm reducing*” controlled substances like Methadone and Suboxone. Several long-term programs will then work to step-down the substitute opiates while the patient’s symptoms can be managed in their 24-hour care facilities.

Post-Withdrawal Treatment:

Residential treatment programs first focus on detox, but then will quickly shift to counseling and therapy. For the duration of the stay, they will feature medical treatment of withdrawal symptoms, and group and individual therapy.

Insurance or Financing Options:

Few insurers will cover an extended-stay rehab option. Check with your insurance provider to determine your eligibility. Nearly all patients are covered by private pay and external financing options.

Success Rate:

N/A Data is not readily available for most long-term care facilities. This is because nearly all of them are private pay options, and therefore do not have to disclose their success or failure numbers for auditing purposes. The basic premise is that you’ll be a resident in their care until you are able to manage “the real world” again. Many Clarity clients have tried these extended-stay facilities first apparently without success. A regular failure rate during the program is a bit of an “open secret” for this corner of the industry as many patients will leave the program on a furlough and not return or relapse while off premises.

*The term “harm reducing” was coined because the controlled supply of Methadone often translates to a lower incidence of harmful behaviors, such as sharing needles and committing crimes to obtain their drug of choice. Opiate addicts are still technically addicted to Methadone and Suboxone, but the incidence of HIV infection and other negative consequences of drug addiction decrease measurably.
