Understanding Addiction & Substance Abuse Recovery
Successfully overcoming an addiction can be the hardest challenge that an individual can face in his or her lifetime. Once an addiction to opioids, such as heroin, morphine, or prescription painkillers, develops, individuals will quickly find that every facet of their lives is consumed by the abuse of such substances. Home life, relationships, and work are negatively impacted by the presence of an addiction. In addition to the social disturbances that take place due to an addiction, individuals are also faced with detrimental physical health consequences. If left untreated, fatality due to overdose is possible.
Medically Assisted Treatment for Opioid Abuse
However, help is available. By taking part in the treatment available through South Amboy Comprehensive Treatment Center, patients are provided with the support and guidance that is necessary to successfully overcome an addiction to opioids. By utilizing a combination of therapeutic interventions and medication assisted treatment, patients are able to treat the physical as well as emotional components of their addictive behaviors. Medication assisted treatment is a safe and effective option for patients who are unable to break free from the dangerous cycle of opioid addiction alone. The following successes have been linked to this type of treatment:
- The symptoms of withdrawal that typically take place after the use of opioids has ceased are eliminated.
- This relief from the discomforts of withdrawal allows patients to play active roles in daily activities.
- Cravings for additional opioid use are eliminated which, in turn, helps to prevent relapse.
- The medications prescribed within treatment are legal prescriptions. When taken as directed and under the supervision of our medical team, these medications are also extremely safe.
