Opioids are prescribed to treat pain. With prolonged use, these pain-relieving effects may lessen, and pain may become worse. Over time, the body develops a dependence to the pain pills. Symptoms of addiction include uncontrollable cravings and an inability to control use even when it begins to have negative effects on a person’s relationships, occupation or finances.
Withdrawal symptoms appear when intake is decreased, which makes it difficult to stop using. Addiction occurs when this dependence begins to affect daily life. Taking an ever-increasing amount can have a negative impact on health and can even result in death.
At Axis, we offer a myriad of treatment options, taking the patients unique situation, along with past treatment, into account. Whether it is through the use of Buprenorphine (Suboxone, Subutex, etc…), Naltrexone or abstinence, we understand that recovery is a journey, and are prepared to stand alongside you as you pave a better path for yourself. We have therapists ready for referral, along with the best intensive outpatient program in the area if a higher level of care is needed.
