Treating Opioid Addiction
There are various aspects to opioid addiction treatment and our goal is to create a treatment plan that not only provides an effective recovery but also a reduced risk for relapse. Opioid addiction treatment options include,
Counseling can provide insight into your addictive behaviors and habits and provide you with effective strategies to better cope. For example, you may find that you turn to opioids to escape the stressors of your daily life. By facing and finding healthier strategies to cope with these stressors you’ll be less likely to want to turn to opioids.
Medications such as suboxone are often used to help ease withdrawal symptoms and cravings, which can be intense and lead people to relapse in the very early days of addiction recovery. These medications can be particularly helpful during the detox phase to lessen unpleasant symptoms.
