Addiction Kicking Your Ass? Nashville Drug Treatment Program Kicks Back
Addiction sucks. If you’re in the middle of it right now, then you know what this means. If you live with someone who’s addicted, God bless you. Chances are, they are leaving a wake of destruction behind them that resembles a dump truck smashing though a nitroglycerin plant. (Many thanks to Christmas Vacation for the reference!)
If you’re addicted, it’s not your fault.
If living with someone addicted, it’s not their fault.
It’s hard to believe that addiction is actually a disease. It’s much easier to simply say, “I have lost control, and this is my fault”. Or, “Why can’t they just stop taking drugs? What’s wrong with them? Where’s their willpower?”
While it’s true that untreated diabetics don’t leave a path of destruction, cheating, stealing and lies behind them, addiction is without a doubt a disease. For some, their insulin is buprenorphine, the opioid antagonist found in Suboxone, Bunavail, Zubsolv, and other medicines. The difference between buprenorphine and insulin is that buprenorphine tricks the brain into thinking it’s receiving a narcotic, leaving the addict feeling normal again, but without getting high. With the cravings satisfied, the person typically acts like a perfectly normal human being, without the path of destruction.
Some people need this medicine in their system, and for how long remains a question no one can answer quite yet. When first introduced, suboxone was used as a detox drug, slowly tapering patients off of their preferred narcotic. The problem was, getting off of narcotics wasn’t enough. The brain eventually realizes it’s not getting its “fix” and patients once thought to be cured from addiction relapsed left and right. Similar to insulin, you can’t just stop because you want to, the body still has the cravings, and that’s part of the reason that addiction has been labeled a disease. The body changes chemically, and there’s no turning back for some people.
Over the past 12-13 years, it’s become obvious that Suboxone might just be the perfect maintenance drug for those addicted. Sadly, insurance companies often want to limit the dosage, and limit the length of treatment to a fixed period, leaving patients to fend for themselves when the coverage period runs out.
imagine this: if someone asked you, “Would you rather be miserable the rest of your life, relapse repeatedly, while creating consequences unimaginable that hurt yourself and others? Or, would it be worth spending $300 per month for the rest of your life to live a normal and happy life?”
Heres the funny part – many addicted are spending over $2000 month to “stay high” buying pills and heroin on the street. It’s hilarious when an addict says, “Treatment costs too much!” No, Treatment is a bargain, especially considering all the good it does for the addict and his or her family and friends.
Treatment is an investment in you, a human being, and there’s no cost that’s too high if it saves a life. The good news is, addiction treatment has gotten very affordable. Suboxone Clinics of Nashville offers an $88 per week program* that includes a monthly doctor visit and up to four therapy sessions with a certified addiction therapist.
Is your well-being and overall sanity worth $88 per week? We think so. In truth, the $88 week program* at Suboxone Clinics of Nashville is a bargain compared to what most people are spending each week on street drugs. The national average for weekly spending on street narcotics in 2015 was over $650. That’s over $2000 per month!
Sadly, some of these very same people feel $88 per week is “just too much money”. The truth is, these aren’t bad people – They’re good people trying to get well, and they can’t see the light. y’re sick, too much money. Really? To save a life? Possibly prevent overdose? Return a mom or dad to their children, not to mention bring ing people back into society as normal human beings?
Make the call (or the text) today: (615) 431-3701, and get your life back.
*Based on one monthly payment of $350. Medication not included.
