Opioid Addiction Treatment
August 22,2015

Opioid Addiction Treatment

Drug addiction is prevalent in American society, and opioids, such as hydrocodone, oxycodone, morphine, and codeine, are among the most easily obtained through prescriptions. They are also some of the most abused, with 2012 seeing 2.5 million American addicted to some form of opioid.

Opioid addiction is often brought on by an accident or injury that requires pain medication until you’ve recovered. Most people become addicted not only to the numbing sensation caused, but the altered mind state that is a side effect of the drug. Because obtaining opioids in prescription form is legal, the process of getting them is far less difficult that getting heroin. The fact that they are so readily available and cheap means that many addicts never see a need to quit.

However, this addiction will only lead to heartache and tragedy for you and your loved ones. While addiction treatment is never an easy road, it is worth it to get your life back on track.

nu Life Medical Group is here to help you. We offer our services in opioid addiction treatment in San Juan Capistrano, CA for those who are seeking opioid addiction counseling and treatment.

Opioid addiction treatment therapy is a two-fold recovery process. First, our staff will assist you in eliminating your physical dependency on the drug. This is most often done through the use of Suboxone, a drug that suppresses the withdrawal symptoms common to opioid addiction. This drug is the most effective way to get you through the withdrawal phase, can be taken at home, and is non-habit forming.

The second part of the recovery process is counseling. Addictions are maintained more because of psychological factors than physical factors. The reasons vary, and with the guidance of an impartial counselor, you can find out the reasons why you became addicted, find healthy coping mechanisms, recognize the trigger signs of a relapse, and continue on a path to positivity and growth.

Knowing you have a problem, and admitting it, is the first step to recovery. nu Life Medical Group is here to take you the rest of the way. Come in today to see if you qualify under state law for Suboxone treatment for your opioid addiction.
