Understanding Addiction

Understanding Addiction & Substance Abuse Recovery

Successfully overcoming an addiction can truly be one of the most difficult hurdles that an individual can face. Once addicted to opioids such as heroin, morphine, or prescription painkillers, many individuals feel unable to break free from the cycle of use and abuse that can quickly overcome every facet of their lives. Many individuals often find that their lives revolve around obtaining and using more opioids in order to achieve their desired high. In addition to impacting their personal lives, those addicted to opioids are at an increased risk for experiencing health consequences that can turn fatal if left untreated.

Medically Assisted Treatment
