At one time, it was extremely difficult for people recovering from heroin addiction to maintain abstinence due to the withdrawal symptoms a person experienced during their early recovery. Heroin cravings and other symptoms of opiate withdrawal made it hard for a person to remain clean, especially in the beginning phase of their treatment. Today, Suboxone is available for people recovering from heroin or other opiate addictions and is an effective form of treatment because the medication helps to reduce symptoms of withdrawal.
Edgerton Heroin Dependence Center is located in Liberty, Missouri and utilizes Suboxone treatment along with intensive forms of individualized behavioral therapies and addiction education for their adult clients recovering from opiate addiction. Instead of focusing on intense opiate cravings and other uncomfortable symptoms of withdrawal, individual's working on their recovery can concentrate on their healing process.
Complete Assessments during the admissions phase at Edgerton Heroin Dependence Center are very important because their clients level of treatment needed and individualized recovery plans are based on the results. Addressing addiction is important but only a small part of the opiate recovery process at Edgerton Heroin Dependence Center. They work closely with their clients and treat mental health issues if present and address underlying problems too during their recovery.
The staff at Edgerton Heroin Dependence Center wants to help their clients achieve and maintain abstinence from opiate addiction but they also want them to have productive healthy futures after their inpatient recovery program is completed. They provide many different programs and services to ensure their clients continued success with daily sobriety, employment and healthy family support.
