Substance Abuse Q & A

When should I seek treatment for substance abuse?

How is substance abuse treated?

The PA Treatment Center team takes a collaborative approach to treatment decisions for substance abuse. They offer medication-assisted treatment to reduce your cravings for drugs and alcohol.

The team uses buprenorphine-naloxone (brand name Suboxone®) to treat opioid dependence. This drug works by reducing the effects opioids like oxycodone, morphine, and fentanyl have on your brain, so you can overcome your addiction without severe withdrawal symptoms or cravings.

The team can also address mental health issues that contribute to your substance abuse. They offer medications to treat depression and anxiety and use genetic testing to determine which medications work best to relieve your symptoms based on your DNA.

You might also need a referral for psychotherapy (talk therapy) to help you maintain sobriety. The team at PA Treatment Center can provide additional resources to improve your health and quality of life, including vitamin therapy and weight-loss services.

Substance abuse services are available through in-office visits and via the telemental health platform. To get started on your recovery from substance abuse, call PA Treatment Center or book an appointment online today.
