Understanding Addiction

Understanding Addiction & Substance Abuse Recovery

Once an addiction to opioids, such as prescription painkillers, morphine, or heroin, takes hold of an individual, he or she will quickly realize that every facet of his or her life becomes consumed by addictive behaviors. Once stable relationships begin to crumble, life at home becomes damaged, poor performance in the workplace can lead to job loss, and a lack of income can result in financial struggles. In addition, individuals who continue to abuse opioids are faced with the ever-present risk of fatality due to overdose. Treatment and support, however, are available.

Medication-Assisted Treatment

Medication-Assisted Treatment for Opioid Abuse

The all-inclusive treatment available through Discovery House Comprehensive Treatment Center of Maine provides patients with the opportunity to receive the support, tools, and education that are required to successfully progress towards a life without addiction. Utilizing a combination of therapeutic interventions and medication-assisted treatment, patients are given the opportunity to address and process both the emotional and physical components of their addictive behaviors. Medication-assisted treatment has successfully provided relief to countless individuals who were once struggling with an addiction to opioids. The following benefits are linked to the use of medication-assisted treatment:

  • Withdrawal symptoms that commonly occur once an individual has ceased use of an opioid are eliminated, which provide patients with the opportunity to productively take part in daily activities.
  • Cravings for continued opioid use are eliminated, which prevent patients from relapsing.
  • The medications that are prescribed within treatment are legal prescriptions that are extremely safe when taken as prescribed and under the close supervision of trained professionals.
