For those who haven’t been there, it’s hard to imagine how difficult it is to fight an opioid addiction. To best understand your individual journey, many of our coaches are former addicts themselves. They’ve fought the demons, and they are proof that there is victory to be had.
Our team is here to help you meet your goals: reduce usage and completely give up opioids, all at your individualized pace. This may be the hardest journey you take in life, but it also could be the most meaningful to your health and happiness.
No two patients are alike, and no two battles with addiction mirror each other. That’s why we have a variety of ways that help you win the fight. Our psychiatry nurse practitioners have advanced and specialized training in opioid dependence and understand basic step-down approaches. This takes time, and we’re here with you for the long haul.
Understanding can be hard to find for those in the depths of addiction. The Leadership Health team is on your side. We know that this is not about your character and it’s not a “weakness” in you as a person: Plain and simple, this is about biology.
While each person is different, some of the aids to beat addiction are the same. Often used in tackling addiction, the prescription medication Suboxone may be one answer at least in the short term for you. Our counselors also utilize mindfulness and meditation to drive back addiction and aid recovery.
Group sessions -- whether in person or on Zoom, with or without video on -- assist many patients battling addiction as they work to recover. We are here to recommend a variety of options on the road to success and be your guide toward the treatments that fit you best.
