Medication Management in Baltimore County: Assisting the Transition

Medication Management Lutherville

Baltimore is no stranger to individuals facing drug and alcohol addiction. Substance abuse addiction often can lead to fatalities if left untreated. In 2017, Baltimore had 761 drug and alchohol- related intoxication deaths. Without proper intervention, including professional help and medication management, Baltimore County will continue to see substance abuse-related deaths.

Why ‘Cold Turkey’ Isn’t the Answer

Sometimes, an individual gets motivated to get clean and attempts it on their own, going ‘cold turkey.’ However, many people that have a drug or alcohol addiction will experience withdrawal symptoms. These symptoms occur because the brain and the body have become dependent on the drug and have difficulties functioning when all traces are removed.

Without proper monitoring, these withdrawal symptoms can be quite dangerous. Individuals may experience seizures, heart attacks, strokes, or even the onset of previously diagnosed mental health disorders and symptoms.

Medication management helps reduce the risks associated with withdrawal symptoms.

What is Medication Management

Medication management is a medical detox program that allows the drugs to process out of the body and brain safely. It is a method that helps people to wean off of dangerous or addictive substances safely. To manage the risk of dependency, a doctor will prescribe a careful concoction of medication. This medication helps alleviate some of the withdrawal symptoms, minimize cravings, and reduce the risk of relapse. It’s an easier transition for the body and the brain to smaller doses of the substance versus “cold turkey.”

When to Use a Medication Management Program

Individuals struggling with addiction should book a consultation with a doctor to better understand if a medication management program is right for them. The most common cases for medication management include:

  • Individuals struggling with opioid or alcohol dependency
  • Individuals struggling with co-occurring disorders (medical or mental health)
  • Patients who have a poly-drug addiction
  • To reduce the risk of injection drug abuse and minimize public health risks
  • Outpatient detox programs
