How Naltrexone Works to Help You Beat Your Opioid Addiction

How Naltrexone Works to Help You Beat Your Opioid Addiction

Opioid addiction has swept the country from the late 1990s until now and left millions of broken lives and hearts in its wake. Between 1999 and 2020, 800,000 Americans lost their lives to opioid overdoses.  

These sobering statistics point to the fact that opioid use disorder (OUD) is a severe medical condition since opioids are potent drugs that produce feelings, for some, of euphoria along with pain relief. This deep feeling of well-being may be a sign that a person is at higher risk of opioid addiction. As time progresses, individuals who are dependent on opioids need higher doses to attain that feeling again, which increases their risk of overdose and death.

 

Because opioids are so powerfully addictive, it’s a very challenging condition from which to recover. 

 

The compassionate team of providers at Advanced Spine and Pain is deeply invested and committed to helping patients recover from opioid addiction and offer advanced treatments — and hope. 

If you or a loved one is struggling with opioid addiction, it’s important to undergo medically supervised detoxification and rehabilitation, and we can provide critical treatment afterward that supports recovery. 

Opioid addiction: Know the symptoms and dangers

Since opioids are legitimately prescribed as a pain treatment, they are highly controlled substances, but many people who misuse them find ways to obtain them, from checking friends’ and family’s medicine cabinets to faking an injury to get a prescription. 

Symptoms of opioid addiction include:

Socially, the person might isolate from friends and family or even steal from them, lose their job, and experience financial problems. 

Sadly, opioid addiction is enough to turn a person’s life upside down and make them lose everything.

Help for opioid addiction

The Advanced Spine and Pain team offers advanced solutions to support your recovery from opioids.

We offer the effective BioCorRX program, which provides treatment with the FDA-approved, non-addictive medication Naltrexone. Amazingly, your ASAP provider can implant the medication under your skin in your lower abdomen, so you don’t have to worry about remembering to take it. 

Instead, slow-release doses are automatically delivered into your system as needed and prescribed over several months. 

This treatment platform enables you to continue your recovery without experiencing the constant cravings for opioids that so often lead to relapse. 

We have seen the impressive results of this treatment time and time again. Our patients are so grateful to have a treatment they can rely on that delivers rapid results, has no side effects or post-procedure downtime, and is delivered via an easy and comfortable implant procedure.

We apply a local anesthetic before inserting your medication implant, and the procedure takes just 30 minutes. You can resume your normal activities the next day, and you visit our office weekly for check-ins so we can ensure everything is working correctly and treatment is going smoothly. 

We’ve embraced BioCorRX Naltrexone treatment because of the transformative effect we have witnessed with our patients who’ve been in the tight grip of opioid addiction.
