Some people might still be skeptical when they hear about medication assisted treatment. They are skeptical because they don’t fully understand the treatment and how it could help someone who is struggling with opioid addiction. When someone is addicted to opioids, they have a disease that affects not only the body, but the mind. Your brain is affected and medication assisted treatment is designed to help rebalance and restore the receptors in your brain that have been damaged from opioid use. Edge Recovery offers medication assisted treatment, a 120 day program that will help addicts achieve full sobriety. This isn’t a program where you receive a prescription and are told that will make you better. This program helps you understand what opioids do to your brain and body, how best to fight your addiction, and how to fully recovery and gain lifelong sobriety.
What is Methadone?
When a person is addicted to opioids and tries to quit, they can face serious and sometimes deadly withdrawal symptoms. The drug cravings and urges can also be very serious. Methadone is a medication that is used in many medication assisted treatment programs. When prescribed by a licensed doctor, methadone is taken daily and helps to relieve withdrawal symptoms and drug cravings.
At Edge Recovery our 120 program is so much more than just prescribing a medication to help our patients. Our treatment professionals are here to help in many ways, and just handing you a prescription is far from the only treatment you’ll receive. When you work one on one with our medical professionals you’ll get to the root of your addiction, learn about ways to prevent relapse, and also learn how to maintain your sobriety after you’re finished with treatment. We also have group programs where you’ll be able to share your experiences and learn what others who have struggled with addiction have gone through as well. You’ll also work with our dedicated and caring counselors through many programs including:
- Individual counseling
- Group therapy
- Family counseling
- Health and wellness
