Opioid addiction is a disease, not a choice. But not seeking treatment for this fatal disease is a choice. If a person with diabetes needs insulin to keep their disease under control why shouldn’t a person with opioid-dependence use medication to stay out of harm’s way, and live a normal life?
Thousands are dying each year from this deadly opioid epidemic statewide and nationally. People are losing their jobs and families are being destroyed due to addiction or chemical dependencies. Children are suffering due to parents’ drug use. Using prescription painkillers or heroin for a long time makes a person dependent on that substance. Severe craving and withdrawal symptoms make it difficult to stop. Due to the development of chemical imbalance inside the brain, a person with addiction can’t stop his/her drug of choice no matter how much they want to.
Medication-assisted-treatment (also referred to as MAT) is saving lives every day. Research has demonstrated that treating addiction with medications helps balance brain chemistry. Using Buprenorphine or Suboxone is not replacing one drug for another, it is an FDA-approved treatment for opioid dependence.
At Right Choice, we offer the most modern treatment for opioid dependence. Combining treatment with substance abuse counseling and MAT (Suboxone or VIVITROL), you can expect the best result when treating opioid or any other addiction. Buprenorphine (i.e. Suboxone) or VIVITROL injection is FDA approved treatment for opioid dependence.
