Drug Detox & Addiction Treatment Services Near Yarmouth, ME

At Pine Tree Recovery Center, we use a holistic, multi-faceted approach that helps clients heal and rebuild their lives using clinically sophisticated medical addiction detox and outpatient treatment. 

Disorders & Addictions Treated at Our Treatment Facility

Our addiction treatment center in Portland takes a comprehensive approach that uses evidence-based approaches to treating the physical and psychological aspects of substance dependence. Addictions we treat include:

  • Alcohol
  • Opioids
  • Prescription Drugs
  • Benzodiazepine 
  • Stimulants
  • Heroin
  • Cocaine
  • Methamphetamine
  • Synthetics
  • Most other drugs

Many drug addiction stories begin with the purposeful or unintentional misuse of prescription drugs — primarily pain relievers, tranquilizers, and stimulants. 

It’s easy to build up a tolerance to prescription opioids, which increases the risk of addiction. While there are many reasons people become addicted to prescription drugs, over-prescribing is a common factor, especially when it comes to opioid pain relievers. Regulators have tried to reduce the amount of medication prescribed for short-term pain control, such as recovery from surgery or sports injuries, but much more work needs to be done.

Prescription Drug Detox

Prescription drug abuse and addiction have been an ongoing problem in the U.S. for decades. The three main types of prescription medications that are prone to abuse are opioids, stimulants, and depressants (tranquilizers). But no matter the type, the first step to recovery is clearing your system of the substance in a process known as detox.

During detox, the body will go through withdrawal, which is its response to functioning without a substance it is dependent on. The symptoms of prescription drug withdrawal will vary depending on the type of drug you take. For example, the symptoms of Xanax withdrawal are very different from the symptoms of Adderall withdrawal. Despite their categorical differences, symptoms of prescription drug withdrawal are rarely life-threatening when treated in a professional medical facility.

Alcohol Detox

We understand how difficult it can be to come to terms with an alcohol use disorder. Our alcohol detox program in ME enables you to undergo a safe, pain-free alcohol withdrawal while preparing you for the next step on your journey of addiction recovery. To learn more about our alcohol addiction recovery program or to begin your journey of healing, contact us today.

The symptoms associated with alcohol withdrawal vary on a person-to-person basis, but usually include:

  • Severe headaches
  • Body tremors/uncontrollable shaking
  • Severe stomach cramping
  • Nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea
  • Loss of appetite
  • Insomnia and other sleep-related issues
  • Profuse sweating/night sweats
  • Increased heart rate and blood pressure
  • Seizures
  • Disorientation and confusion
  • Hallucinations (often associated with delirium tremens)
  • Anxiety and panic attacks
  • Depressed mood/suicidal ideation

Because withdrawal symptoms can be both physical and psychological, and because more severe withdrawal symptoms can be lethal when left untreated, entering into a professional medical detox program is the safest, most effective way to rid your body of alcohol and other substances.

Opioid Detox

When the body is exposed to any chemical substance, it adapts to its presence over time. Once the body, brain, and central nervous system become accustomed to opioids, attempting to quit suddenly and without medical supervision and treatment can be dangerous. The uncomfortable physical symptoms of withdrawal coupled with intense psychological cravings often lead an individual back to use before the detox process is complete. With assistance from a licensed and accredited addiction treatment center like Pine Tree Recovery, you can undergo a safe, pain-free detox, continue with comprehensive rehabilitation and aftercare, and ultimately return to independent living with the coping and life skills necessary to thrive in recovery. 

Early symptoms of withdrawal include:

  • Agitation
  • Anxiety
  • Muscle aches
  • Increased tearing
  • Insomnia
  • Runny nose
  • Sweating
  • Yawning

Later symptoms of withdrawal include:

  • Abdominal cramping
  • Diarrhea
  • Dilated pupils
  • Goosebumps
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting

Stimulant Detox

Stimulants affect the central nervous system by increasing neurotransmitter activity inside the brain. With heavy or ongoing use, your body comes to rely on stimulants to control cognitive function and focus. If you stop using stimulant drugs, you can experience uncomfortable physical and psychological symptoms that can be so severe they drive you back to using. A quality drug detox program, like that offered by PineTree Recovery, will help you manage withdrawal symptoms and keep you comfortable as your body rids itself of toxins. 

Everyone’s experience is different, but common stimulant withdrawal symptoms include:

  • Jitters
  • Anxiety
  • Chills
  • Dehydration
  • Dulled senses
  • Slowed speech
  • Loss of interest
  • Slowed movements
  • Slow heart rate
  • Irritability
  • Hallucinations
  • Paranoia
  • Fatigue
  • Depression
  • Increased appetite
  • Impaired memory
  • Weight loss or gaunt appearance
  • Insomnia or hypersomnia
  • Body aches
  • Drug cravings

The caring professionals at our Portland, ME, rehab center will effectively treat all symptoms associated with stimulant withdrawal, regardless of the type of stimulant drug being misused. If you or someone you love has been using an illicit stimulant like methamphetamine or cocaine or a prescription stimulant like Adderall or Ritalin, we can help. 

Benzodiazepine Detox

Benzodiazepines (Benzos) are a prescription tranquilizer usually prescribed to treat anxiety-related disorders and persistent sleep issues like insomnia. Even when taken as prescribed by a licensed medical professional, benzodiazepines have a high potential for misuse. 

Both physical and psychological symptoms can be severe when left untreated, and certain physical withdrawal symptoms can prove life-threatening in the case of severe benzo use disorders. 

Symptoms commonly associated with benzodiazepine withdrawal include:

  • Insomnia and other sleep disturbances
  • Increased symptoms of anxiety, including panic attacks
  • Increased agitation and irritability
  • Hand tremors
  • Nausea, vomiting, and dry retching
  • Profuse sweating/night sweats
  • Difficulties concentrating
  • Loss of appetite and weight loss
  • Heart palpitations
  • Perception changes
  • Muscular and joint pain and stiffness

In more severe cases of benzo withdrawal, serious health-related complications like seizures are possible, and incidences of psychosis have been reported. 

One of the most effective ways to prevent serious withdrawal symptoms is by slowly tapering off of the benzodiazepine rather than attempting to quit “cold turkey.” At Pine Tree Recovery, we treat you as an individual, conducting an in-depth assessment upon admission to determine which detox methods will best suit your unique case. If you have been using a high dose of benzos, you will benefit from slowly tapering off of the medication under the close supervision of a licensed physician. The dose will be reduced over several weeks so that the central nervous system does not go into shock. 

Synthetic Drug Detox

Synthetic drugs duplicate the effects of plant-based drugs like marijuana and cocaine but are more addictive and very unpredictable. They cause intense withdrawal symptoms that can only be safely managed in a formal detox program that offers medication-assisted treatment (MAT).

Common withdrawal symptoms include:

  • Psychosis
  • Tremors
  • Chest pain
  • Blurred vision
  • Heart palpitations
  • Coma
  • Dehydration
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Seizures
  • Heart attack
  • Dizziness
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Chills/hot flashes
  • Numbness
  • Insomnia
  • Paranoia
  • Sweating
  • Disorientation
  • Stroke

Our Levels of Care for Substance Use Recovery

Maintaining sobriety is a life-long process that requires different types of care at different stages, which is why we offer many levels of care. At Pine Tree Recovery, we will work with you to prepare and build a solid foundation for continued success in recovery. The levels of care we offer include:

  • Medical detox. In medical detox, you will undergo a safe, pain-free withdrawal under the close supervision of a team of medical professionals. 
  • Residential inpatient treatment. This is the most intensive treatment option, lasting 30 to 90 days, depending on your needs. 
  • Partial hospitalization. This level of care is a step down from inpatient treatment and includes full days of intensive therapeutic care (usually seven days a week) with the freedom to return home in the evenings. 
  • Intensive outpatient program (IOP). Our intensive outpatient treatment program (IOP) provides the flexibility that allows you to go to work, attend school, and engage in your day-to-day life. During IOP, you can live at home or sober living while simultaneously participating in our treatment program. 
  • Aftercare. Addiction is a chronic disease that requires ongoing attention. Our aftercare program supports you in maintaining recovery from drug or alcohol abuse, finding ways to prevent a relapse, and achieving a life filled with a sense of purpose and rewarding relationships.
