Millions of people struggle with Opioid Use Disorder, a chronic brain condition. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the number of drug overdose deaths has quintupled since 1999, and almost 75% of the drug overdose deaths in 2020 involved an opioid. The good news is that we have evidence-based treatments that can help.
If you’re struggling with opioid addiction in Cameron Park, California, or the surrounding area, you can turn to Jovive Health for help. We proudly offer an opioid treatment program that incorporates medication-assisted treatment (MAT).
What Does Medication-Assisted Treatment Involve?
Medication-assisted treatment differs from many other substance abuse treatment programs because, as its name implies, it uses medication to help treat opioid use disorders. For example, at Jovive Health, we prescribe buprenorphine/naloxone (an FDA-approved medication) to eligible opioid users over the age of 18. Medications like these can:
- Relieve withdrawal symptoms
- Help users control their cravings
- Lower the risk of an overdose
It’s important to note that medication-assisted treatment doesn’t solely rely on the use of medication. These opioid treatment programs also incorporate counseling and behavioral therapy to help patients achieve addiction recovery. The team at Jovive Health can refer patients to appropriate support services.
