Opiod & Alcohol Addictions
Moderate to severe pain often requires the use of opioids (codeine, fentanyl, hydrocodone, morphine, oxycodone, etc.) to reduce pain. However, extended or excessive use of these often result in a tolerance build up, which requires more of the drug to provide the same level of pain relief. These drugs addictive properties when combined with the increased tolerance often results in abuse of these drugs. At this stage, the person is either in pain combined with withdrawal symptoms from the drug or temporarily relieved during the “high” just after taking the drug. They are no longer able to function as they did before.
Often the solution to the problem is to provide a slow release pain relief drug that allows the person to “be themselves” again. This drug is also an opiod with a smaller “high” but lasts longer without the withdrawals. This process allows the patient to be themselves and combined with counseling they can work their way off the drugs. We provide the first step in arresting the downward spiral and helping our patients navigate out of the maze of addiction. We are with you through the entire journey. We have helped many get back to be themselves.
