In today’s blog, we will be discussing addictions treatment, and how our Hyannis, Massachusetts clinic can be of service to those who are suffering from addiction and substance abuse.
Our Clinic’s Goal
Addictions are a widespread epidemic that affects upwards of 40 million Americans over the age of 12. While addictions are recognized both nationally and internationally as an incredibly large issue, most people struggle to find the help they need to overcome their substance abuse.
Addiction is a serious matter and should not be taken likely. In fact, it affects many people, not just those that are addicted themselves. Friends, family members, and community members are all impacted by addiction. Because of this, it is our goal to help members of our community overcome their addictions by utilizing addictions counseling and addictions treatment methods.
Out Addiction Treatment Methodology
At Hyannis Family medical care we offer addiction treatment services for a number of different substances. There is no addiction that is considered to be “too small” for treatment, and if you or a loved one is addicted, or believes they might be addicted, to one of the following substances, we urge you to get in touch with us right away for treatment.
- Prescription medications
Below, we have listed a few of the common treatments that we prescribe to patients that suffer from substance abuse. Upon your initial consultation with one of our addictions staff members, a proper form of treatment will be diagnosed.
Some of the more common addictions treatments that we prescribe are
Opioid Dependence — Suboxone Therapy
Opioid dependency, whether it be from heroin or prescription drug abuse, is one of the most common, and most damaging, drug addictions in the country. At Hyannis Family Medical Care, we offer our patients that are suffering from opioid abuse Suboxone therapy, a therapy involving recurring treatments of medication. Suboxone is driven by the active ingredients Buprenorphine and Naloxone and is a proven approach to reducing the dependency of an individual to opioids.
Suboxone, while proven to help reduce opioid dependence, cannot work on its own. Instead, therapy, surveillance, and support must also be administered to ensure the effectiveness of the drug. If you or a loved one are considering the use of Suboxone, it is imperative that you do the following.
- Visit a medical professional (like us) that is trained in the administration of Suboxone
- Be fully prepared to give up your addictions and practice abstinence from their use
- Be ready, and willing, to learn about your disease
- Be committed to long-term treatment
If you or a loved one is suffering from opioid addiction, it is imperative that you schedule a consultation with our Hyannis clinic right away. We look forward to helping you overcome addiction and take a step in the right direction toward wellness.
Drug And Alcohol Abuse — Vivitrol Therapy
When a person is going through addictions treatments, the number one risk is for them to relapse — once again participating in the substance abuse that caused their addiction to manifest in the first place. Naltrexone, better known by its brand name Vivitrol, is a treatment tool that medical professionals such as ourselves use to help recovering addicts decrease their chance of relapsing.
Vivitrol is in a class of drugs known as opiate antagonists, with its main purpose being to block the effects of opiates in the brain. In doing so, it has the potential to decrease the user’s desire to take opiates. Much like any other addiction treatment method, Vivitrol cannot guarantee that the user will not relapse and should instead be paired with supervision and addictions counseling. If you are to begin taking Vivitrol it is important to:
- Consult a medical professional that is experienced in addictions treatment
- Be committed to long-term treatment
- Be mentally prepared to give up your vices and practice abstaining from drugs or alcohol
- Be ready to learn to control your disease
