Advanced Spine & Rehab discussses opioid treatment and getting someone you care about help for their addiction.
If someone you care about suffers from a drug addiction, you may need to conduct an intervention in order to get that person to agree to seek help. During a drug intervention, friends, family and other people involved in the person’s life come together in an attempt to convince the person to seek help. While an intervention is not meant to serve as a confrontation, it is meant to serve as a means of getting the addicted individual to realize the destructive nature of the addiction and to accept the help that is available.
In some cases, addicted individuals recognize their need for help. Those who are reluctant or unable to realize that they have a problem, however, may need an intervention to help them see how drugs are affecting their health, relationships and work. Often, addicts deny that drugs are the source of their problem and they instead blame other people or their life circumstances for their troubles. An intervention can help to break through that denial so the individual can clearly see the affects of the drugs.
For those who are addicted to opioids, an intervention can be the first step toward pursuing treatment with suboxone. Comprised of buprenorphine and naloxone, suboxone is a form of drug-replacement treatment. Unlike other forms of drug-replacement treatment, such as methadone, a suboxone treatment program does not require staying in a clinic. If you or a loved one is ready to begin a treatment program to combat opioid addiction, contact Advanced Spine & Rehab to learn more about this treatment option.
