Prescription Drug Abuse Treatment
It can be distressing to see the health and well-being of someone you're close to become affected by prescription drug abuse. As much as you may want a prescription drug abuser to get help, you can't force an individual to get help, begging or threatening won't work either. You can only encourage someone to consider prescription drug abuse treatment as an option. Recovery will come, only if and when the substance abuser truly decides to seek a healthier lifestyle.
Gateway can help people get their lives back on track and break free from their dependence on prescription drugs. Gateway recognizes the benefits of medication assisted treatment in addressing the painful opiate withdrawal symptoms and reducing the risk of relapse.
As part of a comprehensive program, medication assisted treatment includes use of medicine, counseling and therapy to help individuals modify their behavior to make better lifestyle changes.
Research shows that medication assisted treatment helps people remain drug and alcohol free. And Gateway treatment centers administer medications like Suboxone® and Vivitrol® on-site to alleviate discomfort and allow individuals to engage in a personalized treatment program.
