Addiction management is a specialized program that focuses on helping people quit using opioids or alcohol without the side effects of withdrawal.
Cross Hope Treatment Centers offers two prescription medications to assist you on your road to recovery. These include:
Suboxone is a medication-assisted treatment for opioid dependence. Opioids are often prescribed to manage pain, but they can be highly addictive because of how they interact with the brain.
The medication works by reducing cravings for the drug and alleviating your withdrawal symptoms.
Vivitrol is a monthly injection that can help people who are struggling with opioid or alcohol addiction. It blocks the effects of alcohol or opioids, so you don’t get that euphoric “high” from the substances.
Your provider at Cross Treatment Hope Centers can determine the best type of medication for your unique situation.
You should consider seeking professional help for your substance use disorder when it begins to affect your quality of life, health, career, and relationships. Taking the first step in your recovery and the beginning of your new life is one of the most important things you can do for yourself.
While some people drink alcohol socially or take prescription medications without harmful consequences or developing an addiction, for many people, that’s not the case.
Common signs that you can benefit from addiction management include:
If you or a loved one has any of the symptoms of addiction, you may benefit from professional addiction management.
The first step to addiction recovery is detoxification. The detox process often leads to withdrawal symptoms, including tremors, anxiety, and insomnia.
Your provider at Cross Treatment Hope Centers works closely with you to minimize severe withdrawal symptoms through supervised medication management. They can also recommend you to a specialist for counseling and support groups to set you up for a successful recovery.
Because detoxification doesn’t stop the cravings for opioids and alcohol, sobriety is often difficult to maintain without professional help.
Addiction management helps you better understand your personal issues with opioids or alcohol use and the factors that might have contributed to your addiction.
