How We Help When Willpower Is Not Enough
When we help people break free from substance abuse disorders, we generally utilize two main types of treatments – behavioral therapy and medication. For tough cases, like heroin addiction, our team at Metro Atlanta Treatment offers both together in a comprehensive program. When we use FDA-approved prescriptions to promote more therapeutic aspects of recovery, the process is known as medication-assisted treatment.
How Can You Quit Drugs with Medication?
The medications we use to treat substance abuse disorders – like addiction to opioids, including fentanyl and prescription pills – have been approved by the FDA to help you. These medications stop opioids from affecting your brain and/or ease cravings and withdrawal symptoms. Using medicine for recovery is similar to following prescriptions for another chronic disease, like allergies or diabetes.
What Else Can You Tell Me About Your Medication-Assisted Treatment Program?
Just as you would start treating another health concern with a doctor’s appointment, you will start your medication-assisted therapy by consulting our team. This will allow us to tailor your dosage to your unique recovery needs.
Aside from medication, your chosen treatment program will also include individual, group, and family therapy. In addition to these aspects, Metro Atlanta Treatment offers supplementary holistic treatments like volunteering, arts and culture, wellness activities, neurofeedback, adventure-based counseling, and a trauma intervention model. While we support you through every aspect of healing, the medications we use to assist your recovery are:

The disease of addiction draws strength from isolation, so we believe we need to combat it with connectivity! Fostering healthy relationships is a crucial part of recovery that can come difficultly to someone fresh in recovery. At Metro Atlanta Treatment, we want to connect with you and help you to connect with others.
The process of recovery requires you to make a great deal of changes. This demands everyone involved enter this experience with the willingness to try something new. We leave fear and a biased attitude at the door, with an understanding that each individual is in need of something different to succeed.
Getting sober does not mean life becomes stale. We practice having enjoyment on your journey through recreation, discovery, and entertainment. We’ve found incorporating this fundamental piece into the therapeutic process is a breath of fresh and fun air to the recovering individual!
It has been said that knowledge is power. In your battle with the disease of addiction, having an understanding of what you’re experiencing gives you the potential to gain back some of the power you’ve been stripped of. We want to create awareness of the pitfalls, coping mechanisms, tools and resources you need to fight back with competency.
