When you hear the word addiction, chances are the first thing you think of is either street drugs or alcohol. However, people can also become addicted to prescription medications, such as the opioids used to treat pain. In fact, you can even become addicted to medications used to treat addiction, such as methadone and suboxone. TCOYL will not treat an addiction patient with another addiction we treat from an addiction to non addiction in one step.
Treating addiction is a complex process. Getting chemically clean is only part of the treatment. Most people become addicted in the first place because they use drugs or alcohol to manage physical symptoms such as chronic pain or emotional symptoms such as depression. In addition to medications, TCOYL has specialists as members of it’s staff who are qualified counselors to assist in your recovery.
