Anxiety & Pain Management
The Key to Long-Term Addiction Recovery
Today’s fast-paced, technology-oriented world can be very stressful. The demands of working for a living have never been so difficult – and when you add parenting and other relationships into the mix, it can become overwhelming. Many people who feel stressed resort to alcohol and/or drug abuse to reduce anxiety and soothe their frazzled nerves. For these individuals, anxiety management is a key to long-term alcohol and drug addiction recovery.
Effective anxiety management and treatment of a co-occurring alcohol or substance abuse requires an approach that addresses both issues together. Enterhealth’s full-time, board certified psychiatrists and high therapist-to-client ratio enables us to successfully treat dual disorders.
Addiction to Pain Medication
Chronic pain in people with a drug or alcohol addiction presents a significant challenge to clinicians: How can the client’s pain be relieved without exacerbating or reactivating the addiction?
In addition, addiction to primary pain medication itself is a common diagnosis and focus of treatment. Chronic physical pain, if not well managed, often acts as a primary trigger for relapse. The simultaneous treatment of chronic pain and alcohol or drug addiction requires a high level of medical expertise to facilitate consistently successful outcomes.
The physicians and addiction recovery experts at Enterhealth utilize a variety of protocols to treat co-occurring chronic pain and drug or alcohol addiction. Pain treatment may involve the use of long-acting opioids, such as sustained-release oxycodone, methadone, or buprenorphine, administered on a fixed dosage schedule, with another person holding the medication or other equally effective therapies.
Enterhealth’s medically driven alcohol addiction treatment and drug rehabilitation treatment offers personalized residential and outpatient programs in Texas, uniquely suited to where you are in your recovery journey.
