Today the medical community has begun its own war on drugs—they have begun a long-overdue battle against the opioid epidemic. By their own nature, opioids are incredibly addictive due to the euphoric sensation it produces in our brain, as well as the effect it has of relieving our pain. This addiction leads to struggles that affect even our closest friends and loved ones. Luckily, research shed light on the dangers of dependence and today, that research has additionally given those suffering new hope.
This research has begun to show that taking a team approach to rehabilitation is best. There are so many different aspects to consider that there is no way one single provider could cover all the bases necessary to efficiently get those with an addiction along the entire road to recovery.
