As with other behavioral health issues, recovering from substance abuse requires a commitment to work. The need for substance abuse and addiction support is becoming more relevant than ever. According to the CDC, substance abuse deaths in the United States top 100,000 annually.
This data is heartbreaking. Addiction can begin with the experimental use of a recreational drug in social situations, and for some people, especially younger ones, drug use becomes more frequent. For others, especially with opioids, addiction begins with exposure to prescribed medications or taking them from a friend or loved one who has been prescribed with it.
The risk of addiction and the rate of addiction vary from drug to drug. Some drugs, such as opioid pain relievers, are at a higher risk and become addictive more quickly than others.
As such, New Era Recovery and Behavioral Health LLC’s psychiatric and behavioral health in Washington, DC, guides our clients to steady progress to recovery through psychotherapy and medication management. We prescribe medications like Suboxone, Methadone, and Buprenorphine, depending on the nature of the client’s substance abuse.
Through quality and professional care for mental health in District of Columbia, we aim to help our clients stay in control of their life. With our years of experience in this field, we understand how hard it can be to let go of these kinds of substances. Withdrawal can be such a difficult journey, especially if you don’t have the support you need to go through it all.
We believe everyone has a chance to stand up and fight for life once again. If you feel the need to seek behavioral health care, or if someone you know needs it, please do not hesitate to message us. We are always ready to be of help.
