Why do we at the Bergand Group encourage medication management, and treatment that is supposed by the use of carefully-regulated medications? Because it is medically proven to lessen “cravings and effectively reduce the primary concerns of relapse, namely, that of overdose.” This is something to absolutely keep in mind as we, as a nation, continue to struggle through the overdose crisis that surrounds us.

Combatting the Overdose Crisis with Established Treatment

Though it’s understandable to be hesitant about using any kind of drugs in order to recover from (potentially) a drug addiction, the whole process is overseen by professionals, and the drug in question is one that eases the recovery process. There are often serious side effects to moving from an addiction, which is why it has to be undertaken very carefully and with the upmost of care.

“In the grim overcast of so many deaths by overdose, human life calls out for practical, evidence-based solutions, rather than moral conditioning.” Facts and research into what the best options for recovery are have to lead the way if we want to help those suffering within the current overdose crisis. Those who are working in rehabilitation are still at risk, of course, of relapse and overdose, which is why finding the most effective treatment for them is crucial.

Professionals and clinicians across the country are working on establishing the best practices for these people, but we have a ways to go.
