Sharp Mesa Vista Hospital
Treatment for Opiate Dependence
Opiates are typically prescribed to help manage pain associated with surgery or injury, or to help cope with chronic health conditions. Unfortunately, these pain medications can become addictive.
Commonly abused opiates and prescription drugs include:
- OxyContin (oxycodone)
With opiate dependence currently affecting more than 2 million Americans and quickly emerging as a popular drug for young adults, it's important to know where to turn when you or a loved one needs help.
The Opiate Dependence Program helps adults 18 years of age and older achieve healthier lifestyles by combining counseling and education with the most effective medications for suppressing withdrawal symptoms and decreasing cravings.
