The Challenge of Substance Abuse

Struggling with a substance abuse problem can be immensely challenging, so much so that it is often one of the biggest obstacles that an individual can face in his or her lifetime. When individuals are addicted to substances like heroin, prescription pain medications, or morphine, they likely feel as though they are stuck on an endless journey towards destruction from which there is no escape. All areas of their lives can suffer trauma as a result of their use, leaving their home, social, personal, and professional lives in a pile of wreckage. In addition, those who are grappling with opioid addictions place themselves at increased risk for suffering from a variety of dangerous physical health concerns, especially if they continue to abuse opioids for long periods of time. Overdose also becomes a real possibility, which can be deadly.

Why get Treatment for an Opioid Addiction?

Medication-assisted treatment has proven to be highly effective in helping patients achieve recovery from opioid addictions, and those who participate in this form of treatment often yield the following benefits:

  • The withdrawal symptoms that develop once opioids are no longer being abused are often relieved, allowing patients to begin living happily and healthily.
  • Cravings that are known to occur when opioid abuse ceases are lessened through the implementation of medication-assisted treatment, which helps prevent relapse.
  • The medications that are utilized within this form of treatment are legal and do not harm the patient who is consuming them when they are taken as prescribed and under the close supervision of a qualified professional.
