One of the many important treatment services that Honey Recovery Center provides is Medication Management in Addiction Treatment. A key element of addiction recovery is identifying and treating any co-occurring mental health disorders that may accompany, and contribute to, the substance use disorder. Conditions that are common in such a dual diagnosis are depression, anxiety, and bipolar disorder. Determining the most appropriate medication for treating the co-occurring condition, as well as dosage, is one of the services of comprehensive care offered at Honey Recovery Center. Unless these mental health conditions are treated along with the addiction, full recovery is not possible.
In addition to a dual diagnosis, some addictions—such as an opiate addiction or alcoholism—may necessitate the use of an anti-craving medication in combination with ongoing therapy to offer the best chance of addiction recovery. FDA-approved medications such as naltrexone and buprenorphine may be determined to be important adjunct therapies for a successful treatment outcome. Honey Recovery manages these medications as well.
Having in-house Medication Management in Addiction Treatment for our clients provides another layer of convenience for them. Instead of the client having to locate a doctor, our doctor will incorporate any medication needs into your individual treatment plan. This eliminates the danger of an outside doctor prescribing medications that are not in the best interests of the client. The medical and clinical staff will educate the client about how to manage the medications safely and effectively. As recovery progresses, the medications may be adjusted as needed, allowing for the best overall treatment result.
Medication Management in Addiction Treatment is an important facet of the overall outpatient treatment program at Honey Recovery Center. For more information about medication management call 844-472-1777 today.
