As a faith-based organization, we believe that God must be the foundation of effective addiction treatment and that medication allows our clients’ bodies to function normally while counseling and healing occur. In certain cases, we prescribe medication like Suboxone to help our clients stop using heroin, oxycodone, fentanyl and hydrocodone (opiates). Clients in our Medically Assisted Treatment program are required to participate in counseling while counseling and healing occur.
When a person uses opiates, like heroin or oxycodone, for a long period of time, especially at levels in which they develop cravings and addictive behavior, their brain loses the ability to make enough dopamine to sustain normal function. That is why when people try to stop, even with the best of intentions, they often find it too difficult because the withdrawal was too painful. This is why heroin addiction is so powerful.
