Demerol Addiction Treatment
AppleGate Recovery offers treatment and counseling for Demerol addiction in Sugar Land, TX.
Demerol, an opioid-based pain medication, is often prescribed by doctors to combat pain from accidents, heart attacks, labor during childbirth, and medical conditions such as cancer. When used illicitly, however, this drug can be highly addictive. After just one use, Demerol binds to receptors in the brain and alters the way the brain perceives pain. The longer an individual uses Demerol, the more their body becomes physically and psychologically dependent on the drug.
Once an addiction to Demerol a has begun, it is extremely difficult to quit. Withdrawal symptoms can be severe and cause many people to relapse simply to feel better and function day to day.
Our Sugar Land addiction treatment clinic offers a better solution. With medication-assisted treatment and counseling support services, we are able to help patients recover from Demerol addiction in a much safer way.
Using buprenorphine and buprenorphine compounds, we are able to ease the symptoms of Demerol withdrawal and reduce the risk of relapse.
