ADDICTION RECOVERY STARTS HERE
Those who are addicted may find themselves making the object of their addiction their top priority. They can lose sight of all that is really valuable in their lives. Family, work, relationships, home, and other things that were once important become secondary to satisfying addictions. Some brains are wired in a way that greatly increases the chance of becoming dependent. Combining that inclination with high-stress environments, a family history of drug addiction, or certain mental challenges, the risk of becoming addicted increases. Medication-Assisted-Treatment (MAT) is the use of medications in combination with counseling and behavioral therapies. MAT is effective in the treatment of opioid use disorders and can help people sustain their recovery. We help patients by prescribing buprenorphine medications to overcome their opioid cravings and withdrawal symptoms so they can focus on taking steps to get their life back on track.
