Harbor Village comments on the importance of recognizing medically assisted drug treatment in response to WNYT's recent article.

The responsible use of methadone and suboxone is imperative to solidifying drug treatment for heroin addicts.

The war on drugs may be coming to a close, yet there is a heated debate between proponents of treating substance addiction with synthetic opiates like methadone and suboxone and those who champion abstinence above all else. WNYT reported on Feb. 1st that an inmate failed to successfully smuggle suboxone into the prison. The suboxone was melted down and artfully laced into the semblance of a child’s drawing. Harbor Village Detox is an inpatient medical detox center that is focused on providing the pinnacle of health care to those who are in need of drug and alcohol rehabilitation. Harbor Village Detox employs the use of methadone and suboxone in their treatment regime to stave off future relapses.

Harbor Village Detox attests to the responsible use of synthetic opiates to treat drug addiction. It has been proven by the CDC that methadone and suboxone treatments reduce the rate of overdose fatalities. Methadone and the like are meant to be administered by healthcare professionals at set times every day to avoid the adverse effects of illegal drugs.

A Harbor Village Detox medical associate says, “The responsible use of methadone and suboxone is imperative to solidifying drug treatment for heroin addicts. Relapse rates connected to opiate overdoses are continuing to rise, but we’re seeing a positive impact from these synthetic opiate drugs. Those who oppose the medications in favor of abstinence are not acknowledging the loss of life that is being needlessly lost when we have the tools to help curb overdose rates. We cannot allow our drug treatment protocol to be dominated by this abstract sense of ethics, when science is telling us how to help people who are suffering from abuse, and may otherwise become influential people who lead fulfilling lives.”

Harbor Village Detox is committed to the continued health of their patients, and employs the use of methadone and suboxone to treat patients suffering from substance use disorders. The inpatient medical detox facility specializes in purging the body of illicit substances, and is the first line of care in the successful treatment of drug addicts. The facility serves substance and alcohol abusers across the nation, and is located in sunny South Florida. Furnished with lush spa amenities, Harbor Village Detox offers 24/7 medical treatment, private bedrooms, and provides patients with therapy. For those who graduate the program, Harbor Village Detox recommends patients for continued care, including outpatient rehabilitation, and sober living halfway house programs.
