Understanding Addiction

Understanding Addiction & Substance Abuse Recovery

Struggling with an addiction to opioids can be overwhelmingly challenging and serve as the biggest obstacle in an individual’s life. When an individual becomes addicted to opioids like heroin, prescription painkillers, or morphine, he or she can feel as though he or she is stuck in a dangerous cycle that has no end. Every area of life can be destroyed by an opioid addiction, including at work, home, and amongst loved ones. In addition, individuals who are addicted to opioids put themselves at increased risk for serious physical health consequences. The longer that an opioid addiction continues, the more likely it is that long-term damage can be done and the risk of overdose increases dramatically.

Medication-Assisted Treatment

Medication-Assisted Treatment for Opioid Abuse

For individuals such as these, we, at East Wisconsin Comprehensive Treatment Centers, offer programming options that help guide and support them on their journeys toward recovery and away from abusing opioids. When combined with therapeutic interventions, medication-assisted treatment is successful in helping individuals overcome their addictions. Proven to be highly effective in treating opioid addiction, medication-assisted treatment can help provide individuals with the following benefits:

  • Withdrawal symptoms that often develop in response to the cessation of opioid use are decreased, allowing an individual the chance to rebuild a life filled with happiness and productivity.
  • Cravings for opioid use are lessened via medication-assisted treatment, which helps shield against relapse.
  • All medications utilized in a medication-assisted treatment program are legal and do not cause any harm to the individual when used as directed.

If you or someone you care about is trapped in the insidious cycle of an opioid addiction and is looking for a positive way out, reach out for help at East Wisconsin Comprehensive Treatment Centers today to get started on the road to recovery.
