Treating Opiate Addiction the Right Way
While it may seem easier to simply not address your addiction, continuing to abuse prescription drugs can continue to put you at a risk for overdose, not to mention the many negative side effects from the drugs. Going cold turkey off of any drug is also not a good idea, as it lowers your long-term success rate for staying off of the drug. Utilizing trained professionals who have a variety of helpful treatment methods for you is the best option available. For opiate addiction, withdrawal can be treated with a variety of short-term medications under close supervision of a medical professional.
In addition to physically removing the drug from your system, individuals suffering from opiate addiction also tend to do well at inpatient treatment facilities and group or individual therapy sessions in order to gain the best possible outcome.
You don’t have to keep seeing your work or relationships suffer because you find yourself addicted to opiate painkillers. At Treatment Partners of America, you will receive professional and compassionate care in order to help you break free of your addiction.
