There is Help with Opioid Addiction.
One of the biggest misconceptions people have about opioids is that the risks apply to other people. not themselves. But the “typical ” victim of overdose might not be whom you think. Approximately 60% of overdoses occur in people prescribed the drugs by a single physician, not in those who “doctor shop” or get them on the streets. And one third of those were taking low dosage. Used properly, opioids can ease short term pain from surgery, a broken bone or dental work. But the problem is that when combined with alcohol, used beyond the prescribed level or combined with other drugs such as sleeping pills. Drug treatment centers today tend to group everyone into the same category of “drug abuse” when in fact, it’s generally an honest mistake that becomes an addiction. This is where Bayshore differs from most drug treatment centers. We understand that a physical problem can create an addiction. We believe that no one wants to have their life controlled by a substance… but also that sometimes the substance intended to help is stronger than his or her will power. Treatment of opioid addiction at Bayshore Retreat begins with health. Opioid addiction can be dealt with in a healthy and holistic manner. Pain is real and can be managed – but first together we must find a balance. That’s what we do at Bayshore Retreat.
