Benefits of Medication Assisted Treatment for Addiction
Individuals undergoing detox know that using their substance of choice again will relieve them of their symptoms. This is why those who self-detox often face relapse. However, there are more options for detoxification aside from going cold turkey.
At Crestview Recovery, clients can undergo medication-assisted treatment for addiction. In this program, our medical director and staff provide clients with medication, such as Suboxone, that lessens the severity of withdrawal symptoms.
These substances do not pose a risk for addiction, but they function in a way that tricks the body into believing the addictive substance is still present. These substances let clients wean off addictive drugs gently to facilitate a more successful and long-lasting recovery.
