Addiction Medicine Q & A

What is addiction medicine?

Addiction medicine is a service that can help you recover from substance use disorder. Multiple types can impact your life, and they all involve the compulsive use of a psychoactive substance. Addictions can be highly dangerous to your health, so it’s best to treat them with help from medical professionals.

The Rofé Medical team is equipped to treat multiple types of addiction. You might benefit from:

  • Medical detoxification
  • Pharmacotherapy with Suboxone or similar medications
  • Individual counseling or therapy 
  • Group counseling or therapy
  • Family counseling or therapy
  • Relapse prevention and aftercare

The team at Rofé Medical evaluates your substance use and can determine if addiction medicine is a good fit for you. Counseling or psychotherapy is often beneficial within addiction medicine, but sometimes medications to control your substance use are necessary, too. You can pick up your medications at Rofé Medical’s onsite pharmacy. 

Who can benefit from addiction medicine?

Personalized addiction medicine at Rofé Medical can treat several different substance use disorders, including:

Tobacco use disorder

Tobacco use disorder is an addiction to tobacco products like cigarettes or chewing tobacco. You establish your goals and get professional support from the team to stop smoking or using tobacco in any form. 

Opioid use disorder

Opioids are pain-relieving medications, many of which are prescriptions. Medications such as methadone and naltrexone can reduce withdrawal symptoms and relapse while helping you avoid overdosing on opioids.

Alcohol use disorder

Alcohol use disorder treatment can involve detox, which involves medical stabilization as the alcohol leaves your system. Individual or group therapy may help alongside possible medications like naltrexone. 

When should I book an appointment for addiction medicine?

There are many signs of an addiction that you may recognize in yourself or someone close to you. The team at Rofé Medical provides an initial evaluation to diagnose a substance use disorder and create a treatment strategy based on the type you have. 

You should consider scheduling an appointment for possible addiction care if you experience:

  • Compulsive use of drugs or alcohol
  • Withdrawal symptoms when you stop using drugs or alcohol
  • Reckless behaviors based on your substance use
  • Health complications from using drugs or alcohol
  • Family conflict because of your substance use
  • Legal troubles because of substance use

If drug or alcohol use seems to control your life and decision-making, it’s time to consider a professional addiction medicine care plan.
