Opioids are drugs that include heroin, morphine, and prescription pain medication. When these drugs are used and abused it can quickly spiral out of control and turn into an addiction. Millions of Americans are struggling with opioid addiction in our country. If you or someone you know is battling an opioid addiction it’s time to seek the treatment you need to get sober. One of the new programs that is being used to help addicts overcome their opioid addiction is called medication assisted treatment. Medication assisted treatment in South Florida has become increasingly popular because of the results it has shown. At Edge Recovery, we support those and work with those who are using medication assisted treatment programs. To go along with your medication we provide programs that will help you work towards overcoming and maintaining your sobriety.
What Medications are used during Medication Assisted Treatment?
