Understanding Addiction

Understanding Addiction & Substance Abuse Recovery

In the effort to overcome an addiction to opioids, individuals may encounter challenges more complex than anything that they have faced before. When a person becomes addicted to opioids such as morphine, heroin, and/or prescription painkillers, virtually every facet of his or her life can become overwhelmed by his or her addictive behaviors. Life at home can become unstable, important relationships can quickly become tarnished, and effective performance in the workplace can become a thing of the past. And all of this social damage can be accompanied by grievous physical and psychological harm. Fortunately, treatment and support options are available.

Medication-Assisted Treatment

Medication-Assisted Treatment for Opioid Abuse

Discovery House Comprehensive Treatment Centers of Rhode Island provide individuals with the opportunity to take part in comprehensive outpatient treatment for opioid dependency. By taking a comprehensive approach, we provide patients with the opportunity to address and process all aspects of their addiction, including the physical, psychological, and socioeconomic ramifications of their disease. Comprehensive outpatient medication-assisted treatment provides a range of benefits, including the following:

  • The physical and psychological pain of withdrawal can be alleviated, which enables patients to participate both in day-to-day life as well as play active roles in their own recovery.
  • Opioid cravings can be minimized, which in turn minimizes patients’ risk of relapse.
  • The medications prescribed in treatment are safe and effective when taken as directed under the guidance of our addiction treatment team, and patients’ progress will be closely monitored throughout the process.
