Opiate Addiction - We Can Help

Are you struggling with dependence on opiate drugs such as Vicodin, Norco, Oxycontin, Heroin, or other related drugs? At Harborview Recovery Center, we can provide the care you need through our Outpatient Opiate Management Clinic. Our experienced physicians, who are certified in addiction medicine, can safely and comfortably assist you in relieving your dependence on opiate drugs.

What is opiate dependence?

Opiate dependence is a disease with physical, psychological, and social consequences, including:

  • Physical changes - The need for increasing amounts of opioid to produce the same effect, symptoms of withdrawal, compulsion to use, mood swings, and sleep disturbances.
  • Psychological components - A reliance on heroin or other drugs to help you cope with everyday problems. These drugs may also become a necessary part of "feeling good" or "having fun".
  • Social consequences - Less contact with important people in your life and an inability to participate in important events due to drug use (e.g, missing days at work, or family obligations). In extreme cases, there may even be criminal and legal implications. You may realize that it's costing you more and more money to obtain these drugs.

There are a variety of factors that can contribute to the continued use of opioids. These include:

  • The use of heroin/prescription opiates to escape from or cope with problems
  • The need to use increasing amounts of the drugs to achieve the same effect
  • The need to use more of the drug(s) to avoid the very unpleasant effects of opiate withdrawal

The Solution - Outpatient Opiate Management Clinic

Through our management program, we offer you the solution.

The initial eight week Outpatient Opiate Management Clinic includes an assessment, physician-addictionologist visits, group counseling, case management services, and the use of Suboxone®, a prescribed medication that is highly effective in treating heroin and prescription opiate addiction and withdrawal. It can also be helpful in maintaining abstinence from heroin and opiates.

During the treatment process, Suboxone will help you avoid many or all of the physical symptoms of opioid withdrawal including: craving, restlessness, poor sleep, irritability, yawning, muscle cramps, runny nose, tearing, goose-flesh, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea.
