Gentle Opiate Detox and Addiction Treatment

Sometimes it is hard to look in the mirror. Many do not want to admit to personal weaknesses. But is opioid dependence or addiction to Heroin, Oxycontin, Methadone and Vicodin a personal weakness? No it is not. For some, drug use can begin as a choice, but soon the brain takes over and changes the way these drugs work. A one time use turns into a life changing habit.

To take the road to recovery however you still have to look in that dreaded mirror. You have to be honest with yourself about your hopes and concerns so that you can face them head on. You may want to ask yourself some questions first:

- How did I wind up using pain pills for years after that back injury?
- Why am I still in pain when I am supposed to be on a chronic pain management program?
- My addiction has cost me my job and my family. Will it cost me my life?
- I used to take pain pills to lift my moods. Now am I taking pain pills just to not feel miserable?
- It was fun to use Heroin and Oxycontin in the beginning. Why do I feel like I can't get off of them now?

These questions may be a lot to take in so it is important that you have a good support team. And a good support team will greatly increase the effectiveness of your success. It helps to include a trusted loved one, a qualified Doctor to direct and manage the steps to a clean life, and also a professional to help address the emotional and behavioral components behind your addiction.

The Gentle Detox program can be your guide and support throughout your recovery. With the expertise of our team you don't have to be afraid of terrible withdrawals and you don't have to be concerned that you will be abandoned after the detox process. We will work with you to develop a sustaining and supportive aftercare program using medical and behavioral resources in the community.

It is time to take the next step.
