Treatment for opioid addiction is different for each person. Here at Crossroads, our main goal for treatment is to help you stop using the drug. Opioid addiction often requires the use of partial opiate agonists like Buprenorphine, for ambulatory detox, and often for maintenance therapy.
Abstinence treatment is also an alternative with the use of Naltrexone (Vivitrol) monthly injections. Medicine can help with your physical addiction to opioids, but you may also need help with your mental or emotional addiction to opioids. Counseling can help you learn how to manage the underlying psychological issues behind your addiction. Together, these treatments help you avoid opioids, deal with cravings, and heal damaged relationships.
