Frequently Asked Questions
What addictions do you treat?
Addiction Help specializes in the treatment of opioid dependence, alcohol dependence, and co-occurring disorders (including depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, and others).
What is Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) and is it right for me?
like buprenorphine-naloxone (Suboxone) and naltrexone (Vivitrol) – along with counseling and
behavioral therapies – to address issues related to opioid and alcohol addiction, including
withdrawal symptoms, cravings, and relapse prevention.
The best way to know if MAT is right for you is to talk with a medical professional or schedule a consultation with Addiction Help.
Will Suboxone cure opioid addiction?
Suboxone is an effective treatment for opioid abuse, despite the fact that there is no "cure" for addiction.
Suboxone works by reducing the symptoms and cravings associated with opioid withdrawal. This allows you to engage with counselors and case managers to address your addiction triggers and acquire new coping skills in order to achieve long-term recovery.
Is buprenorphine safe for pregnant women?
Pregnant women who are battling with opioid addiction should be provided medication-assisted therapy with buprenorphine or methadone, as well as evidence-based behavioral treatments, according to SAMHSA clinical advice.
Experts agree that the advantages of buprenorphine far outweigh the dangers when it comes to treating opiate addiction during pregnancy. Buprenorphine has been demonstrated in studies to have low long-term neurodevelopmental effects and has not been linked to an increase in birth abnormalities.

Is my treatment confidential?
At Addiction Help, your right to privacy is a priority. We will not release information about you or your participation in our program unless you specifically give us written permission. We strictly follow 42 CFR Part 2 and all HIPAA requirements.
What is drug tolerance?
Drug tolerance is when your body, over time, gets used to the effects of a drug.
As this happens, you may need to take a higher dose of the drug to get the same effect.
When you take opioids over time, you need a higher does to get the same pain relief.
If you stop using an opioid for a period of time, your tolerance will begin to fade. If you need to begin taking it again, you most likely will not need your former higher dose. That can be too much for the body to take. If you stop taking a medication, and then resume, talk to your doctor about dosage.
Do you provide counseling or support services?
Counseling is a vital component of any successful medication-assisted treatment program. In order to help you accomplish your recovery goals, Addiction Help offers group, individual, family, intensive outpatient counseling, and case management services.
