Opioid Addiction Treatment

Defeating an addiction to opioids can be one of the biggest struggles that an individual can face during his or her lifetime. Once addicted to opioids, such as heroin, morphine, or prescription painkillers, individuals may quickly feel like every facet of their lives revolves around their addictive behaviors and powerful drug cravings. Relationships can quickly begin to deteriorate, job loss could result due to poor performance at work, and many individuals may find themselves faced with legal issues. In addition to the social dangers associated with addiction, many find themselves struggling with the uncomfortable physical discomforts linked with addiction as well. Most notable is the ever-present risk of overdose, which could be fatal.

We're here to assist you or someone you love is regaining control of the life that addiction has taken hold of. By utilizing a comprehensive treatment approach, patients are able to receive treatment for both the physical as well as emotional components of their addiction. Medication-assisted treatment has been proven to be a safe and effective treatment option for those battling an addiction to opioids. The following benefits have been directly associated with the use of this form of treatment:

  • The symptoms of withdrawal that typically take place once the use of opioids has stopped are eliminated, which allow patients to resume life in a productive and stable manner.
  • Cravings for additional opioid use are diminished which significantly lowers the risk of relapse.
  • Medications that are prescribed within treatment are legal prescriptions that have been clinically proven to be safe when used under the guidance of a trained medical professional.

Please contact us today if you or someone you love is trapped in the dangerous cycle of opioid addiction. Our devoted team of highly skilled staff members is here to provide you with the tools necessary to successfully achieve lasting recovery.
