NE TREATMENT FACTS
- Opioid addiction recovery takes time and patience. In fact, most people aren’t automatically cured by just attending one treatment program, and multiple options are often necessary.
- According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, it costs society much more when drug addicts continue using than when they seek professional help and get better. This is also true of the personal cost of substance abuse vs. the cost of treatment.
- Family members and friends hoping to plan an intervention for an addicted loved one should always have a treatment option in mind before staging the actual intervention. This way the individual cannot say they will seek help and then not do it.
- Most opioid addicts require medication and behavioral therapy as part of their treatment regimen.
- When an individual is choosing an aftercare program for post-treatment life, most rehab centers will help them transition into a safe and effective option.
