At New Smyrna Wellness Center, we believe in a comprehensive approach to the disease of addiction. Opiate dependency is an epidemic in this country, which requires treatment to prevent morbidity and mortality. Our highly trained and experienced clinicians have options, such as outpatient medication-assistance therapy (Suboxone/Zubsolv), Vivitrol, and IV Amino Acid/NAD.
Suboxone is an opioid medication used to treat pain as well as treating addiction to narcotic pain medications. It can be very challenging to quit using narcotics without some type of assisted therapy or treatment and Suboxone acts as a medication assisted treatment. This can help you remain sober while decreasing the effects of withdrawal. Suboxone can also benefit you by blocking the cravings that could lead to a potential relapse.
Vivitrol, also known by the generic name of Naltrexone, is a series of monthly injections that helps treat alcohol dependence and assists in preventing relapse to opioid dependence after you have gone through opioid detoxification. This is an opioid free option suitable for most people trying to overcome alcohol dependence. Vivitrol helps control the feeling of a "need" to use opioid medications.
