      Medical Addiction Therapy has been gratefully welcomed by both the opiate-addicted and medical fraternity. The opiate-addicted truly and sincerely appreciate the medication's ability to relieve nearly all withdrawal symptoms and the medical field appreciates it because of its magnificent design. Medical Addiction Therapy has been designed to disallow the person taking it to abuse it.

      Why is Medical Addiction Therapy Treatment Better than Methadone?

      FAQ on Medical Addiction Therapy Palm Beach Gardens FL

      One very common problem with methadone is that opiate addicts will typically continue to use their drug of choice in conjunction with it. Much to the professionals' appreciation, this is not possible with Medical Addiction Therapy.

      Why Use Medical Addiction Therapy?

      There is a chemical by the name of Naloxone within the chemical make-up of Medical Addiction Therapy. Naloxone is a potent “anti-opiate” and its primary function is to prevent opiates from working as desired when ingested into the body. It is not absorbed when taken by mouth and so has no effect when Medical Addiction Therapy is taken as prescribed. However, if a person were to deviate from the prescribed method of taking the pill, the effects would be very painful.

      What discourages patients from misusing Medical Addiction Therapy?

      For example, opiate addicts tend to have a habit of crushing up pills and intravenously injecting them. If you were to try that with Medical Addiction Therapy, you immediately experience a reverse effect. What this means is you would go into withdrawal symptoms within seconds of injection. Anyone who has ever kicked opiates knows that this is an extremely hurtful experience.

      So, if you are planning on utilizing Medical Addiction Therapy please be aware that it would be in your best interest to take it as prescribed and do not attempt to intertwine your drug habit with this medication.
