Demerol Addiction Treatment

Some researchers say Demerol (meperidine) has a lower risk of addiction than other opioids.[1] If you’ve abused the substance, you may feel differently. You may also feel like it’s impossible to quit using it. The team at Boca Recovery Center is here to help.

Struggling with Opioid Addiction? Get Help Now

Successful Demerol addiction treatment programs combine medications, therapy, and aftercare. This evidence-based approach is one we follow at Boca Recovery Center. We’ve helped thousands of people to recover, and we’d love to do the same for you. 

Treating Demerol Addiction at Boca Recovery Center 

Tailored treatment is critical for people with a Demerol addiction. You are a unique individual who deserves an approach that fits your past and your future. The following components could be part of your path to a new life: 

Medical Detox for Demerol Withdrawal Management 

Withdrawal is a natural process, caused by brain cells adjusting to sobriety. Experts say complications are often underestimated, and they’re often monitored inadequately.[2] Medical detox at Boca Recovery Center is different. 

Our team will assess your addiction and choose the right medication to help you. Therapy will start when you begin to experience withdrawal symptoms. You’ll start medications at a high dose that will taper as your body adjusts to sobriety. You’ll also access nutritional therapy, counseling, and other therapeutic tools to help you adjust. 

Medication-Assisted Treatment 

Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) involves using pharmaceutical solutions for a long period to reduce your relapse risks and help you focus on therapy. When used properly, MAT won’t make you high. Instead, they’ll help with your long-term recovery.[3]

Three MAT options exist, including the following:[3]

  • Buprenorphine 
  • Methadone 
  • Naltrexone 

Your treatment team will help you determine which medication is right for you. And if your needs change in treatment, your medications can shift too. 

MAT programs can last indefinitely. At the end of your treatment journey with Boca Recovery Center, we will help you find a provider near your home that can continue your care. You’re not required to quit all of your substances before you leave the facility. We understand that you may need the help for a long time, and we’re committed to making that happen. 

Comprehensive Inpatient Rehab Treatment for Demerol Abuse

Combining multiple forms of treatment can help people realize that change is possible.[4] With a comprehensive treatment program, you can learn new behaviors that can help you stay sober for a lifetime. 

Choosing an inpatient program, like the one we offer at Boca Recovery Center, is a commitment. You’ll move out of your home and into the treatment facility. Every day, you’ll participate in therapeutic solutions that can end Demerol abuse. That can mean group therapy, individual counseling, MAT, exercise, and more. 

A talented team supervises your inpatient treatment progress. Your team will check in with you and ensure that you’re making progress. If the program needs to shift, your team will make that happen. Your recovery is our goal. 


People with opioid addiction struggle with the direct and indirect consequences of that abuse.[5] Therapy and counseling from the talented team at Boca Recovery Center can help. 

Addiction therapy often involves cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). This type of treatment is goal-oriented and can help you make changes like the following:[6]

  • Change the way you act
  • Reduce negative emotions (like fear or anxiety) 
  • Adjust the way you think, so you can solve problems instead of reacting to them 

In addition to CBT, Boca Recovery Center offers different approaches that may help with your Demerol addiction. You may participate in education sessions, go into therapy sessions with your family, or learn to process prior trauma

At the end of your Boca Recovery Center program, you may benefit from ongoing therapy to problem solve new challenges. Your team can help you find a professional who’s in your neighborhood ready to work.

Long-Term Recovery From Demerol Addiction 

With hard work and help from your treatment team, you can recover from Demerol addiction. Accessing long-term solutions can help you ensure that your sobriety sticks. 

As your inpatient program at Boca Recovery Center comes to a close, your team will discuss next steps. You could opt for one of the following solutions:

  • Sober living homes: Move into a facility with others who are also in recovery rather than heading back to your original home. This buffer step can help you develop new skills. Once you have a stronger foothold in recovery, you’ll then move out on your own. 
  • Partial hospitalization: If you’re not ready to move out of the facility and away from intensive care, partial hospitalization could be a good fit. You’ll live outside of the facility at night, but you’ll work with an inpatient team during the day. 
  • Intensive outpatient treatment: Live at home or in a sober living home and spend several hours each week with a treatment team. 

You may need to move in and out of these treatment modalities as your recovery progresses. There’s no shame in asking for help at any point in the process. Your Boca Recovery Center team is dedicated to your success. 

Other examples of Demerol aftercare services include the following:

  • Peer support: This is defined as the process of giving and receiving nonprofessional, nonclinical assistance from people with similar conditions.[7] You might use Narcotics Anonymous, SMART Recovery, or another solution your treatment team will help you find. 
  • Continuing education: You may benefit from learning even more about how addictions work and how people recover from them. 
  • Vocational training: Your team can link you with local resources to help you find the right job. 

Ideally, you’ll use almost all of the aftercare services we’ve listed here. You’ll lean on the people, solutions, and services you need whenever you’re going through a hard time.
