Medication Assisted Treatment for Those Struggling With Addiction
Many cases of addiction, particularly those involving heavy alcohol or opioid use, can pose serious health issues when a patient makes an effort to stop. In those cases, medication assisted treatment can help patients not only break the cycle of addiction, but help them deal with both mild and severe effects of withdrawal.
What is Medication Assisted Treatment?
Certain addiction disorders, primarily those struggling with heavy alcohol use or opioid use (drugs such as heroin, fentanyl, and many pain relievers) often require the use of medication assistance to help patients cope with the treatment process and avoid the possibility of relapse.
Overcoming these powerful addictions can have wicked consequences physically and mentally in the short-term, making it extremely difficult to leave the habit behind on your own. Medication assisted treatment is proven to increase treatment retention, decrease use in those with addiction disorders, improve birth outcomes among women who are addicted, and overall improve survivability.

Our Country Is Dealing With an Addiction Crisis.
As of August 28, 2020, the World Health Organization released statistics explaining that half a million deaths are caused by drug use every year. 70% involve the use of opioids. In addition to this, roughly 88,000 people die from alcohol-related deaths every year.
All of these deaths are entirely preventable. The unfortunate situation is that both alcohol and painkillers, for example, are common and prevalent in most households. The issue occurs when individuals use substances in a way that becomes destructive, and addiction has already set in before the user has a chance to realize the toll it’s taken on their health.
