When paired with mental health issues, addiction can be all the more difficult for people to successfully recover from. If you’re struggling with drug addiction, The Bergand Group’s provided drug treatment in Harford County offers affordable programs tailored to your individual needs.

Barriers for Those Struggling with Addiction

Receiving drug treatment can be difficult between the stigma, inability to pay the high price, and lack of insurance coverage. Many people who do not struggle with this addiction see it as a choice, or something that is easily stopped. The truth is, the stigma can prevent those facing addiction issues from receiving the treatment they need because they struggle with admitting to the problem. No one chooses addiction: it is a combination of genetic predisposition and environmental stimuli.

Another common barrier to treatment is the lack of insurance coverage and the inability to pay for treatment. There are a lot of reasons that they might not be inured, but even if they are, they may face limitations that make it more difficult to receive medication-assisted treatment (MAT).

The Role of Detox

Whether you’re recovering from alcohol, heroin, or prescription drugs, medication-assisted treatment is used to suppress symptoms of withdrawal and cravings. This will allow the substances to be removed from your body in a more comfortable and safe way. Suboxone, Methadone, and Narcan are commonly used during the detox.

Part of the detox is creating recovery plans and counseling (group or individual). The team will consist of addiction psychiatrists, social workers, and peer recovery specialists. With extra support and encouragement to engage in the treatment, it motivates those struggling to continue to get the help they deserve.
