This would be like a short term residential facility…normally a 28 day or less that would also include a detox at the start of it. It is probably the highest level of care and treatment that you can expect to get. All of the other options are less intensive. Probably the only way to do better than this is to follow it up with long term treatment. Drawbacks: It is expensive. Results are not guaranteed. Success rates are typically quite low.


2. Drug Maintenance

This would be like using Methadone or Suboxone (another synthetic opiate) to take every day so that you do not relapse. In theory, this sounds like the perfect treatment for opiates, but it tends to not work so well in the real world. Drawbacks: This is expensive too, in most cases. Subjective evidence by the author says that it doesn’t work real well in the long term. Plus it creates another dependency.


3. Cold Turkey

This would be like detoxing yourself at home on the couch, and simply gutting it out. Some people have actually had success with this approach, but not many will succeed with it. Drawbacks: Typically doesn’t work. Very uncomfortable. Difficult to make any long term life changes without taking real action.


4. Holistic Approach

This would be like going to rehab and then using an holistic approach to stay clean and maintain sobriety after you leave. For example, you might work on nutrition, focus on exercise, build healthy relationships, seek emotional balance, explore your spirituality, and so on. Doing this correctly requires a massive effort and a real drive for personal growth. Drawbacks: No one wants to do it. Taking massive action is hard work.
