Does Treatment Work?

Addiction can be devastating and recovery may seem out of reach. No matter how powerless you feel, change is possible with the right treatment and support. Just check out some of these success stories! Treatment will take time. Most people need at least three months to significantly reduce or stop drug use.

What Can I Expect?

Recognizing you need treatment takes courage and strength. Don’t try to do it alone. Treatment is more than treating addiction alone. It includes addressing your day-to-day challenges such as medical needs, mental and social issues, family history and more.

Treatment is different for everyone. It’s not a one-size-fits all solution. A health care professional can help you determine which combination of support services will work best for you.

Withdrawal Management

Detox is the phase when your body physically withdraws from drugs. It is good to go through detox at an inpatient treatment facility or through an outpatient program so a health care professional can monitor you.

Counseling and Behavioral Therapy

Therapy is a critical part to recovery. Recovery will be hard physically, mentally and emotionally, so having a professional support you through this journey is so important. They will give you tools and techniques to help you stick to your treatment and they will address additional day-to-day challenges, such as mental and social challenges, family history and more.


Medication and therapy can be a highly effective way to treat addiction. Your provider may prescribe medications like buprenorphine/naloxone, Vivitrol, or methadone that help with withdrawal symptoms.

Non-opioid Treatments for Chronic Pain

Opioids can be safe and effective, but they also come with risks. Talk with your provider about these risks and Navigate ways to manage your pain that do not involve prescription opioids.

Support Groups

Addiction can make you feel like you are alone. But many people battle addiction. Support groups allow you to connect with people who are on the same recovery journey. And more often than not, these people become your trusted friends for the long-haul.
