Anti-Addiction Medications (Pharmacotherapy)
Anti-addiction medicines are important for the treatment of drug and alcohol addiction for many reasons. Since drug and alcohol addiction is a chronic disease that begins in the brain, Enterhealth utilizes anti-addiction medicines as a critical element during medical detox, drug detox and alcohol detox.
Due to the powerful chemical changes that occur in the brain, cravings drive each person to use, often overwhelming even the strongest desire to quit. The body also becomes physically dependent due to drug and/or alcohol addiction, so abruptly stopping can be dangerous and cause harmful physical trauma.
Fortunately, amazing breakthroughs in drug and alcohol addiction treatment and medical science have greatly minimized the risks associated with quitting and going through drug or alcohol detox. During residential and outpatient addiction treatment and medical detox, Enterhealth uses the following anti-addiction medicines,when appropriate:
These anti-addiction medication therapies serve to block the effects of alcohol and/or drug addiction within the brain, decrease cravings and physical effects of addiction withdrawal, and block the "high" or euphoria caused by drugs or alcohol.
