Why is medication helpful?
One of recovery’s biggest hurdles is pushing through the first few weeks of sobriety. For many of our clients, they have been stuck in their addiction for years, often trying to stop but unable to stay stopped. Using drugs and alcohol is all they know. Their emotional dependency intensifies the physical withdrawal. We would not pull off a bandage before the wound has healed. For some clients, medication is that bandage and must be used so they can even begin the challenging work necessary for recovery and to rebuild their lives.
