Naltrexone is a very effective tool to assist individuals in becoming successful in their recovery...
Anaheim, CA (PRWEB) April 01, 2016
On April 1st, in conjunction with the start of Alcohol Awareness Month, BioCorRx®, a pioneer in the field of addiction treatment, is announcing that its comprehensive recovery program is now available at 20 independent locations nationwide with more coming soon. The outpatient, non-addictive, medication assisted treatment (MAT) program, is a cutting edge private treatment protocol that can give those suffering from addiction another opportunity to defeat their bondage to alcohol or opioids. The BioCorRx® Recovery Program begins by tackling the cravings through a simple outpatient procedure. With cravings subdued in most cases, participants can then begin the comprehensive counseling regimen which can be completed within the framework of their lives with little to no time away from work or family. Interested program participants must first consult with a qualified medical practitioner to determine if they are medically qualified for the medicinal portion of the treatment.
“Most people in our country do not receive adequate, comprehensive treatment”, says Dr. George Fallieras, Medical Director of the BioCorRx® Recovery Program. “They only receive the psycho-social/ behavioral component of recovery, which is absolutely essential and critical; but those first three to six months are notable for overwhelming, intrusive, constant cravings which provoke relapse”.
In order to combat these cravings, the BioCorRx® Recovery Program’s first step is to administer naltrexone, a non-addictive medicine that has been used to combat addiction for over three decades. Until recent years, the medicine was only readily available by pill or injection form, but these delivery methods can be met with patient non-compliance, especially in the case of the oral form of delivery. Now, BioCorRx® offers access to a time-release implant that is typically inserted in the lower quadrant of the abdomen, just under the fatty tissue and above the muscle, which slowly administers the medicine over the course of several months. This can better ensure that one never misses an appointment for a dose while engaging in the more important counseling program that is designed to help the participant with long term sobriety.
According to Dr. Fallieras the naltrexone implant is very effective. “It diminishes the cravings significantly” says Fallieras, “and that's why people are tethered to their addictions, because of the cravings”. Fallieras believes that although the medicine is an essential part of the treatment process, that it is merely part of the equation. "Long acting naltrexone is a very effective tool to assist individuals in becoming successful in their recovery attempt. When individuals are no longer possessed by non stop cravings, they can focus in their AA meetings. They can be present in their counseling and therapy sessions. They can effectively work the steps, or whatever recovery program they are actively engaged in. The lessons can penetrate, and outcomes improve."
Once the cravings are controlled, the next phase of the BioCorRx® Recovery Program is the one-on-one drug and alcohol counseling process, which helps patients and their families adjust mentally, socially and spiritually to life without substances. BioCorRx looks to a future of helping countless American families and families abroad to beat their battles with addiction.
