Opioid Addiction Rates
The current opioid crisis in the United States is considered a “serious” concern by The National Institute of Drug Abuse with opioid addiction accounting for 66% of drug overdoses. Opioid addiction can begin with illegal drugs (e.g. heroin, opium) or the misuse of prescription opioids (e.g. codeine, morphine, fentanyl, etc.) used as part of a medical treatment plan, often for pain management.
If you are in the opioid epidemic, know you are not alone. Millions of Americans are caught in the cycle of opioid dependency with a total of 21.5 million struggling with a substance use disorder with an estimated 1 in 8 struggling with alcohol abuse and drug abuse in tandem.
The effects of opioid use disorders can be devastating. The physical, behavioral, and psychological consequences of opioid dependency can disrupt your life and the lives of those close to you. Withdrawal symptoms can be dangerous, even life-threatening, so treating addiction should be supervised by medical professionals.
To break the cycle of abuse and addiction, therapy is encouraged because detoxing is not enough. Studies have shown that those who skip therapy and do not follow a relapse prevention plan have a 40%-60% chance of relapsing. Still, the National Survey on Drug Use and Health found that 95% of those requiring help do not seek treatment for opioid addiction.
Seek care if you or a loved one are exhibiting symptoms of addiction or drug abuse.

Opioid Addiction Treatment Programs
At the Detox Center in Los Angeles, CA, your opioid addiction program will be tailored to your needs and depend on the dependency level. Treating opioid addiction at TDCLA can be broken down into three levels for varying degrees of opioid abuse and dependency. Level one is outpatient care. Level two is our intensive outpatient care and partial hospitalization. Level three is our in-person rehabilitation program.
An in-patient rehabilitation program or partial-hospitalization program may be needed so that your detoxification process can be supervised, even medically supervised if required. This is to ensure your safety and so that we may minimize negative withdrawal symptoms as much as possible. If you do not feel ready to commit to our complete residential detox program, level two may be an option as a stepping stone for level three.
Your personalized therapy program will run alongside detox. At intake, our staff will assess your level of addiction and consider any health conditions to determine treatment needs. You will receive a dual-diagnosis assessment so that we may address mental health concerns (such as a depressive or anxiety disorder) that could be aggravated by addiction or be contributing to addiction. From here, we personalize your prevention and treatment plan.
Each level of our addiction recovery programs typically lasts between 28-90 days or longer depending on your needs.
