Are you or a loved one dealing with an opioid addiction?
If so, you may be looking for treatment options to help you overcome your addiction. While there are a lot of programs and options out there, addiction medicine specialist, Dr. Kent Smalley, at the Neurowellness Clinic, offers a comprehensive medication-assisted treatment that involves both medications to help manage withdrawal from opioids along with counseling and behavioral therapy to provide you with helpful habits to help you kick the addiction for good.
Here at the Neurowellness Clinic, our team practices a medication-assisted treatment approach that combines medication with therapy to be able to tackle all of the challenges that come from an opioid addiction, whether they be social, behavioral, or psychological. There are several medications that could be used to ease withdrawal symptoms and to stop cravings. These medications are prescribed by our neurologist Dr. Smalley.
Along with medication, Dr. Smalley and his team will also monitor you closely and provide you with regular therapy. The medication will be taken for as long as is needed until withdrawal symptoms are fully gone, then the medication will be tapered off.
Therapy is just as important as a part of your recovery process as the medication. Just like dealing with a chronic health problem or mental illness, we understand that ongoing therapy can be incredibly helpful in preventing relapse. Therapy allows our patients a safe, judgment-free environment from which to learn more about ways to control their habits and pinpoint triggers for addiction and abuse.
Here at Neurowellness Clinic, we work with people with everything from substance abuse problems to opioid addictions. Dr. Smalley is both an addiction medicine specialist and a behavioral neurologist, which means that he can provide those dealing with addiction a comprehensive treatment plan that can help them overcome their addiction. Having a doctor who is an active and integral part of your recovery can also reduce your risk for relapse.
