Opiate addiction is one of the biggest problems facing our country today. The issue is that pain medications are being prescribed at alarming rates when in reality the drugs are dangerous and addictive. Although pain relief is incredibly necessary for those who undergo surgery or are in some kind of accident, our bodies become accustomed to the drugs which builds a tolerance and sets the stage for a dependency on prescription medication. Over time, higher and higher doses are required to relieve pain and an opiate addiction begins taking control of your life. This usually happens gradually, and because the pills are legal and prescribed by a physician it may take time to realize that they are in fact addicted.
Those with a physical dependency to opiates find it extremely difficult and even life threatening to stop taking them cold turkey. Specific detox protocols are necessary to address withdrawal from prescription drugs. The pain may still exist from the original injury and emotional aspects of withdrawal must also be taken into account. During treatment, we will help you control your pain using holistic treatment options. It is crucial for patients suffering from opiate addiction to learn how to treat pain without using opiates or narcotics. Our qualified medical staff will be with you every step of the way.
