Recovery is Possible

Live Life Again!

Abusing opiate medications disrupts the natural endorphins of the brain. Endorphins help to give feelings of pleasure. Healthy people will feel content when they've accomplished something or had a meaningful conversation with someone they care about. Opiates mimic the natural endorphins and as a response, the brain shuts down production of the natural neurochemical. When patients taper down to a low enough level of buprenorphine, the patient's brain will gradually return to normal.

When paired with counseling, this method has a high rate of success in allowing patients to stay clean and enjoy their lives again.
