Addiction Is a Medical Condition.
Treatment Can Help.

Opioid addiction, also known as opioid use disorder (OUD), is a chronic and relapsing disease that can affect anyone. In fact, millions of Americans suffer from opioid addiction.

As with most other chronic diseases, addiction is treatable. If you or someone you know is struggling, treatment is available. While no single treatment method is right for everyone, recovery is possible, and help is available for opioid addiction.

Recovery is Possible

Preventing overdose death and finding treatment options are the first steps to recovery. Treatment may save a life and can help people struggling with opioid addiction get their lives back on track by allowing them to counteract addiction’s powerful effects on their brain and behavior. The overall goal of treatment is to return people to productive functioning in their families, workplace, and community.

Opioid addiction treatment can vary depending on the patient’s individual needs, occur in a variety of settings, take many different forms, and last for varying lengths of time.

Evidence-based approaches to treating opioid addiction include medications and combining medications with behavioral therapy. A recovery plan that includes medication for opioid addiction increases the chance of success.

Medications used in the treatment of opioid addiction support a person’s recovery by helping to normalize brain chemistry, relieving cravings, and in some cases preventing withdrawal symptoms. The choice to include medication as part of recovery is a personal medical decision, but the evidence for medications to support successful recovery is strong.

What People Are Saying About Us Online

Amanda

I decided to come to Access after having HORRIBLE care at another facility. I read a review that said they were a “model clinic,” That review wasn’t wrong! From the first time I walked in the door, I was treated like a PERSON. Every single staff member that I have met has been compassionate and friendly. They truly care about your recovery! There’s also not a better person for the front desk. Sarah makes everyone feel welcome. They really are what other clinics SHOULD be!

Scott

This place is amazing. Everyone there from the girl at the front desk, security guard, nurses, and program director have all been so pleasant and helpful. It is by far the best program that I've ever been to.
