Opioids are a class of drugs that include heroin, morphine, and prescription pain medication. It can be easy to get hooked on these drugs, whether someone had a major surgery and began abusing pills or they tried the drug one night and became addicted. For those who are struggling with opioid addiction Edge Recovery supports those who are using a medication assisted treatment program during their recovery. With our 120 day program you can work towards achieving lasting sobriety and overcoming your opioid addiction once and for all.
When it comes to medication assisted treatment programs there are typically three medications that are used to help an addict. Which medications each addict uses will depend on the individual and how severe their addiction is. The medications that are used are buprenorphine, naltrexone, and vivitrol. These medications all work in conjunction to help balance the receptors in the brain and block the feelings and effects of opioids. When on a medication assisted treatment plan, even if the addict relapses and uses opioids they will not feel the same high they did in the past. Opioid addiction is a brain disease and these medications all work to rebalance the brain’s receptors to help one make a full and healthy recovery.
