Understanding Addiction

Understanding Addiction & Substance Abuse Recovery

Overcoming an opioid addiction can be, by far, the hardest obstacle to overcome in a person’s life. Being addicted to opioids like morphine, prescription painkillers, or heroin can cause an individual to feel locked in the confines of his or her addiction with no way out. Every part of his or her life quickly becomes consumed with his or her addiction, with negative consequences occurring at every turn. A person’s home life, ability to perform well at work, and the relationships an individual has with others can suffer. In addition, an opioid addiction exposes an individual to a greater risk of experiencing physical side effects, including overdose, of which can be fatal. The longer an addiction such as this continues, the more likely serious side effects will occur.

Medically Assisted Treatment

Medically Assisted Treatment for Opioid Abuse

For individuals looking to obtain recovery, programming options, such as those provided at Volunteer Comprehensive Treatment Center, can give them the guidance they need to feel supported and end their abuse of opioids. When combined with therapeutic interventions, medication assisted treatment can help bring about a full recovery. This form of care has proven to be highly effective in treating opioid addiction, and those who participate in this treatment often benefit in the following ways:

  • Withdrawal symptoms that come along with the cessation of opioids are silenced, which allows the individual to be productive in his or her life and recovery.
  • Cravings for opioid use are stopped via medication, which in turn helps reduce the risk of relapse.
  • All medications utilized in our treatment program are legal and do not cause harm to the individual when taken as prescribed.
