Understanding Addiction

Understanding Addiction & Substance Abuse Recovery

Conquering an addiction to opioids can be the largest hurdle that an individual must clear during his or her lifetime. Once an addiction to opioids, such as prescription painkillers, morphine, or heroin, takes hold, many will feel as if their entire life suddenly revolves around their addictive behaviors. Relationships that were once stable quickly begin to falter, job loss becomes a reality due to poor performance in the workplace, and legal issues may begin to surface. Additionally, many individuals who abuse opioids struggle with the dangerous physical side effects that accompany the use of these substances. Sadly, when treatment is not received and continued use occurs, individuals can eventually face fatality due to life-threatening overdose.

The compassionate staff at Shelbyville Comprehensive Treatment Center (CTC) is here to assist you or someone that you care for in safely breaking free from the grips of opioid addiction. By utilizing a comprehensive treatment approach, patients are given the opportunity to receive treatment for both the physical and emotional components of their addiction, while progressing towards recovery.

Medically Assisted Treatment

Medically Assisted Treatment for Opioid Abuse

Medication-assisted treatment is a safe option that provides patients with relief from the physical and emotional symptoms associated with withdrawal. In addition, patients who utilize this treatment option experience the following benefits:

  • Withdrawal symptoms that typically occur once opioid use has ceased are eliminated, and this provides patients the ability to take part in daily activities in an unimpaired manner.
  • Cravings for continued opioid use are diminished, which prevents the risk of relapse.
  • The medications that are prescribed within treatment are legal prescriptions that are clinically proven to be safe when taken as prescribed and under the close supervision of a licensed medical professional.

Please contact Shelbyville Comprehensive Treatment Center today to learn more about the treatment options that we offer, as well as how we can assist you or someone that you love in returning to a life without addiction. Our dedicated team of medical and mental health experts is here to assist you in taking the first steps towards the healthy, happy, and opioid-free life that you deserve to be living.
