If you or a loved one is struggling with Lortab use, you may wonder how to stop the cycle of addiction. You may wonder about rehab treatment options and the differences between the treatments. You may worry about how to pay for it all and if insurance will cover rehab. These questions and worries are common. Fortunately, in the state of Washington, there are resources that can help.
Lortab is one of the brand names for the drug combination of hydrocodone and acetaminophen. Other brand names for this drug mixture include:
Hydrocodone is a highly addictive narcotic controlled substance. The drug is also the most commonly prescribed narcotic in the United States currently. Doctors often prescribe it for pain or coughing.
Unfortunately, Lortab addiction can develop quickly. You are at risk for addiction because the drug triggers the brain’s reward system. The brain is flooded with feel-good chemicals when you take the drug. When your brain learns to expect these chemicals, you are at risk for dependence, tolerance and addiction.
However, Lortab addiction is a treatable condition, just like all drug addictions. Treatment options are available for Lortab abuse and addiction. Depending on the rehab facility, Lortab addiction treatment levels of care may include:
- Medical detox
- Inpatient, or residential, care
- Partial hospitalization programming
- Intensive outpatient programming
- Outpatient care
- Aftercare planning and support
- Sober living housing
Finding the right Lortab rehab facility and level of care for you will depend on factors like how much Lortab you regularly take, how long you’ve been taking it, whether you have health insurance, and other factors. Detox, inpatient and outpatient Lortab treatment programs are a good place to start with rehab for this type of addiction.
Inpatient and Outpatient Lortab Addiction Treatment
Lortab addiction treatment in Washington may involve a few different treatment steps. These treatments may be done one after the other, or in combination. Possible options include:
- Assessment: meeting with a provider who will work with you to decide what addiction services are right for you
- Treatment referral: after your assessment, a referral can be made to help you start your journey to recovery from Lortab
- Detoxification: detox helps you through the withdrawal process as you take the first step into recovery and quit Lortab
- Outpatient rehab: light medical support and counseling services that may be one-on-one or in a group while you live at home
- Inpatient rehab: intensive and fully supervised rehab where you have counseling and education while living in the rehab center
- Opioid substitution: medication like methadone or buprenorphine and naloxone to help curb cravings as you recover from Lortab addiction
- Case management: referrals to doctors, social programs, and other help you may need as you continue your recovery from Lortab
Unsure of whether an inpatient or outpatient program is right for you? Inpatient programs provide the most support and intensive care but are also the most expensive. Inpatient care helps you take the first steps in recovery after detox.
If you are physically and mentally stable and have already gone through Lortab detox, outpatient care may be right for you. In outpatient treatment, you can live at home and continue your daily life while commuting to rehab several times a week.
Both inpatient and outpatient treatment for Lortab addiction is offered at The Recovery Village Ridgefield in Washington. Our representatives can speak with you to answer your questions and help you pick a program that could meet your needs.
