Opioid Rehab Center Includes Medication Assisted Treatment
Our opioid rehab center utilizes traditional, evidence-based treatment with a medical approach, which lends itself to focus on the mind, body and spirit. After receiving a full medical assessment from our medical doctor, a course of treatment will be determined. This may include medication assisted treatment if our medical team feels it is appropriate. This may include buprenorphine, Suboxone and other anti-craving medications like Naltrexone or Vivitrol. While this medical treatment has helped prevent overdose deaths and relapse, it must be used in conjunction with clinical therapy. As a full-service opioid rehab center in Florida, we treat the whole person and know first hand that medication alone is not the path to lasting recovery, but a combination of medicine, spiritual awakening and behavioral therapy.
