Combating an addiction to substances can truly be one of the biggest challenges an individual will face during his or her lifetime. When an individual becomes addicted to opioids, such as heroin, morphine, or prescription painkillers, his or her life can quickly spiral out of control. Opioid addiction quickly becomes the center of that person’s very existence and everything else falls to the wayside. Before an individual knows it, relationships are tarnished, home life becomes damaged, and his or her job responsibilities are neglected. In addition, those addicted to opioids often find themselves at an increased risk for physical health consequences that could be fatal.
Western Virginia Comprehensive Treatment Centers provide individuals struggling with an opioid addiction with the tools and support necessary to break free from the cycle of addiction. By combining medication assisted treatment with therapeutic interventions, patients are given the skills needed to achieve long-term recovery. Medication assisted treatment is a safe and effective option provided to patients to achieve the following benefits:
- The symptoms of withdrawal that typically take place once the use of opioids has ceased are significantly decreased, which provides patients the opportunity to focus on recovery.
- Cravings for additional opioids are reduced, which prevents the risk of relapsing.
- Medications used within treatment are legal prescriptions that are extremely safe and effective when taken as directed under the supervision of Western Virginia Comprehensive Treatment Centers’ highly trained medical team.
