Individuals who have decided to receive treatment for an addiction to opioids often face challenges larger than anything that they have previously experienced. Once an addiction to opioids, such as prescription painkillers or heroin develops, individuals will quickly feel as if every aspect of their life revolves around their addictive behaviors. Life at home quickly becomes unstable, poor performance in the workplace can lead to job loss, and financial strains are felt from a loss of income. In addition, an addiction to opioids can cause numerous physical side effects that can quickly turn fatal if left untreated. Support and treatment, however, are available.
The all-inclusive treatment available through Western Pennsylvania Comprehensive Treatment Centers provides patients with the opportunity to receive the treatment and guidance that is required to successfully return to a life free from opioid abuse and addiction. Using a combination of therapeutic interventions and medication assisted treatment, patients are given the opportunity to process and overcome the emotional and physical components of addiction under the close supervision of trained professionals. Medication assisted treatment has assisted countless patients in safely returning to a life that no longer includes that dangerous abuse of opioids. The following benefits are linked to the use of medication assisted treatment:
- Withdrawal symptoms that typically occur once use of an opioid ceases are alleviated, which allows patients the ability to take part in daily activities without impairment.
- Cravings for continued opioid use are eliminated, which helps prevent relapse.
- Medications prescribed in treatment are legal prescriptions and are extremely safe when taken as directed by a licensed medical professional.
