Understanding Ceta Plus Abuse

Understanding Ceta Plus Abuse Recovery

Ceta Plus is a medication that contains a blend of hydrocodone bitartrate and acetaminophen. This medication is an opioid agonist/non-opioid analgesic. Ceta Plus is often prescribed to individuals who are suffering from moderate to moderately severe pain, as it impacts the central nervous system in ways that alleviate this pain. While Ceta Plus can be beneficial for these individuals and allow them to continue to live without physical pain burdening them, it can also be highly addictive. The abuse of Ceta Plus causes a feeling of being high, as the release of neurotransmitters in the brain are blocked and causes individuals to experience feelings of euphoria and detachment from their surroundings. In many cases, these impacts are what cause individuals to crave this medication, which can trigger tolerance, addiction, and eventually dependence. Once an addiction to Ceta Plus develops, it can be incredibly challenging to overcome without help.

Luckily, there are treatment options available that can help individuals who are addicted to Ceta Plus stop their abusive tendencies. One form of effective treatment is medication assisted treatment. This type of care helps individuals who are addicted to opioids like Ceta Plus take their first steps towards recovery. Medication assisted treatment utilizes specific medications that are proven safe and effective in decreasing withdrawal symptoms, cravings, and the dangers that opioids can have on the body and mind. When these medications are consumed under the supervision of certified professionals, individuals can begin to realize a life that is no longer controlled by the abuse of Ceta Plus.

At Sandhills Comprehensive Treatment Centers, Our dedicated and skilled staff of medical and mental health professionals supplies and supervises this form of treatment so that individuals who are battling a Ceta Plus addiction can begin putting their lives back together. Here at Sandhills Comprehensive Treatment Centers, we are prepared to help you begin living a life that is happy, health, and recovered.

Types of Treatment Offered

Types of Treatment Offered for Ceta Plus Abuse Recovery at North Carolina Comprehensive Treatment Centers

Sandhills Comprehensive Treatment Centers is a group of providers that providing outpatient care to individuals aged 18 and older who have been grappling with a Ceta Plus addiction for at least one year. The talented and understanding staff of counselors, doctors, and nurses at Sandhills Comprehensive Treatment Centers is committed to developing individualized treatment plans to meet the needs of each patient who walks through our doors. The variety of medication assisted treatments and therapies that we provide at Sandhills Comprehensive Treatment Centers include:

Methadone: A great deal of research has been conducted and proved methadone’s safety and effectiveness in treating opioid addictions. By triggering the same receptors in the brain that opioids do (but without creating a high), methadone can help decrease withdrawal symptoms and cravings. As a result, patients can continue working, driving a car, and more, as they are not high or being impacted by the side effects of Ceta Plus withdrawal.

Suboxone: Suboxone is a medication that can help decrease the intensity of Ceta Plus withdrawal symptoms and cravings, all without an individual getting high. The brand name of the combination of buprenorphine and naloxone, Suboxone was approved for use in opioid addiction treatment programs in 2002 by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The buprenorphine in Suboxone helps curb cravings and withdrawal symptoms, while naloxone fends off further opioid abuse and overdose.

Subutex (buprenorphine): Similar to Suboxone, Subutex contains buprenorphine, which allows individuals to be alleviated from their Ceta Plus cravings and withdrawal symptoms. This medication does not contain naloxone, and as a result, patients tend to begin their treatment on this medication and then switch to Suboxone for long-term care.

Vivitrol: While methadone, Suboxone, and Subutex are consumed orally and once a day, Vivitrol is a long-lasting medication that is injected once a month. The active ingredient in Vivitrol is naltrexone hydrochloride, which helps prevent individuals from going through withdrawal symptoms and cravings.

Individual therapy: At Sandhills Comprehensive Treatment Centers, we believe in supplementing the medication assisted treatment we provide with therapeutic interventions like individual therapy. While medication addresses the physical aspects of addiction, patients can utilize individual therapy to address their emotional, behavioral, and psychological issues as they pertain to their Ceta Plus addiction. Individual therapy is conducted by a counselor in a one-on-one setting where patients can comb through these issues and any other concerns that might arise.

Group therapy: Serving as a complement to individual therapy, Sandhills Comprehensive Treatment Centers also provide group therapy that offers supportive and helpful interpersonal interactions in a safe environment led by a counselor. By engaging in group therapy with others who have shared similar addiction-related struggles, patients can move forward in their recovery through the personal insights, encouragement, and support provided to them by others. The counselors who lead group therapy sessions are trained in providing a structured space that offers information and empathy for everyone involved.

Why Consider Treatment

Why Consider North Carolina Comprehensive Treatment Centers for Ceta Plus Abuse

The continued use of Ceta Plus can cause individuals to grow more susceptible to a variety of different consequences. Whenever an addiction is present, it can create extreme chaos in an individual’s life and cause him or her to put things that were once important on the back burner. When this happens, a number of disturbances can develop within an individual’s relationships, as his or her use often takes top priority. In addition, those who are addicted to Ceta Plus might also experience challenges related to their work life, as they are no longer able to perform to the best of their abilities. This can result in job loss, continued unemployment, and financial difficulties. From a physical aspect, Ceta Plus abuse can be incredibly dangerous. Issues such as acute liver failure, abdominal pain, stomach pain, dizziness, lightheadedness, and more have been common side effects of this type of substance abuse. Furthermore, continued Ceta Plus abuse can lead to overdose, which can be deadly.

While defeating an addiction to Ceta Plus can seem almost unfathomable to those who are currently struggling with it, there are ways to overcome this disease. At Sandhills Comprehensive Treatment Centers, our talented and loyal staff of professionals is prepared to help you make the life-saving choices and changes you need to put an end to your addiction so that you can begin a living happy, healthy, and drug-free life.
