Opioid Treatment

Opioids are substances naturally grown and artificially produced. These substances act on opioid receptor sites to provide pain relief to medical patients and elation to mental health patients.

Opiate receptors are spread throughout the brain, spinal cord and digestive system. Today with the addition of the powerful synthetic opiate Fentanyl, opioid addiction is at record levels responsible for thousands of overdose deaths.

As opioid patients find stabilization, they may become residents of Seven Ponds.

Seven Ponds provides our potential residents who present with opiate abuse or addiction issues an immediate admission into New Visions Medical Detox Center in Durant Oklahoma, 15 miles from the Seven Ponds campus including hospital stays of up to seven days. Secondary care follows detox and stabilization for up to six months and maintenance programs are facilitated through local clinics. Opiate grant programs are available for those who qualify cutting treatment costs by 50%.

As opioid patients find stabilization, they may become residents of Seven Ponds and begin to participate in each of the various programs as they complete their post-acute detox program. Using components of the Wilderness, Images and Narrow Gate programs these residents begin to move into a daily routine of activities and self-assessment and renewal. Selected specialists in the field of addiction are enrolled to assist each of these residents based on their strengths, needs, abilities and preferences. (SNAP)
