Understanding Addiction

Understanding Addiction & Substance Abuse Recovery

Grappling with a substance abuse problem can be one of the most difficult challenges that an individual can face. When individuals are struggling with addictions to opioids such as heroin, morphine, or prescription pain pills, they can easily feel as though they are stuck in a dangerous cycle of abuse that has no end. All parts of their lives can be damaged when an opioid addiction is present, causing an individual’s home and work life to suffer, in addition to his or her social life. Furthermore, those who are battling opioid addictions put themselves at increased risk for developing numerous physical health issues. The longer that opioids are abused, the more likely these individuals will suffer an overdose, which could be life-ending.

Medication-Assisted Treatment

Medication-Assisted Treatment for Opioid Abuse

For individuals who have found themselves in this position, the services we provide at Baton Rouge Comprehensive Treatment Center can supply them with the support they need as they work to defeat their opioid addictions. When combined with other therapies, medication-assisted treatment allows individuals to effectively defeat their opioid addictions. Medication-assisted treatment has been proven to work amongst those who are addicted to opioids, and can yield the following benefits when it is received:

  • The symptoms of withdrawal that generally occur once opioids are no longer being used are alleviated, allowing the individual to begin building a happy, healthy life.
  • Cravings linked to opioid dependency are dramatically decreased through the implementation of medication-assisted treatment and ultimately help prevent relapse.
  • The medications utilized within this form of treatment are legal and do not cause any harm to the individual when taken as prescribed and under the care of a healthcare provider.
