At Remedium Recovery, we are passionate about helping our patients overcome addiction, and support them through their recovery.
We understand that taking the first steps towards recovery and towards getting life back is difficult and we applaud them for it.
If you or someone you know is ready to detox from drugs or alcohol, Remedium's medication-assisted detox program may be the most comfortable option.
Enrollment in an drug detoxification program is an very important first step to beginning your recovery.
Drug detox is a time for your body to rid itself of any drugs or alcohol. Detox allows the body to clear out remaining substances, while adjusting to life without.
During this recovery period, patients will experience both psychological and physical restorations to their body, as well as potentially undesirable withdrawal effects.
Our doctors, however, have years of experience helping patients free themselves, and will use a deliberate combination of medication and care to quell withdrawal symptoms, while weaning the body safely off of dangerous substances.
At Remedium we know an accurate evaluation and understanding of a patient's needs is one of the most important factors of a successful detox program.
Evaluation is the first step in the drug detoxification process.
Each person's case, and addiction are unique.
In your first appointment, our doctors will take you through the intake process in which they will perform a full evaluation including:
- Medical Evaluation
- Psychological Assessment
- Physical Exam
Body chemistry, the length of time a person has been using substances, and the type and amount of opiates taken all play a part in addiction.
For that reason, to accurately diagnose and treat an opiate addiction, we medically assess our patients to properly plan and execute our detoxification program.
Medication-assisted treatment for opioid addiction and dependence is not the same as substituting one addictive drug for another, but rather, very similar to using medication to treat other chronic illnesses such as heart disease, asthma or diabetes.
Suboxone is a FDA approved medicine used to treat people who are addicted to prescription pain medications such as Fentanyl, Codeine, and Morphine and illegal drugs like heroin and opium. It contains the active ingredients Buprenorphine and Naloxone, which help with withdrawal symptoms.
At Remedium Recovery, we prescribe Suboxone to our patients as a part of our complete treatment plan.
Detoxification, itself, is the process of removing drugs and medically stabilizing the body. This phase varies for each patient, can be one of the most difficult.
To combat drug cravings and withdrawal symptoms, our doctors and staff carefully monitor each person during the detox process.
Everyone responds to the Suboxone treatment differently, but our experienced doctors will tailor your recovery and treatment process to suit your specific needs.
Once the proper dose of Suboxone is determined to meet your needs, you receive many benefits including:
- More eEergy
- Less Irritability, Anxiety, and Agitation
- Easier to Sleep
- Disappearance of Hot and Cold Sweats
- Free of Muscle Aches and Pains
- Less Abdominal Cramping, Nausea, Vomiting, Diarrhea
