The Road To Recovery
Millions of Americans are addicted to opioids. According to the CDC, more than 130 people die each day after overdosing on opioids, and millions more suffer from opioid related substance abuse problems. Luckily, there are special tools to help you or your loved one to transition off of opioids.
Recovery from this addiction may feel like a lonely path to travel, but you are not alone. At our clinic, we’re dedicated to helping patients with their addictions and mental health.
Opioid addiction can be treated through Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT). MAT is the use of medication (Suboxone) in combination with counseling for the treatment of substance abuse disorders. The ultimate goal of MAT is full recovery from opioid dependency.
MAT decreases opioid use, opioid-related overdose deaths, criminal activity, and infectious disease transmission.
MAT increases social functioning and the likeliness to remain in therapy, leading to successful treatment.
