It is estimated that patients taking medication for opioid dependence or substance abuse have a 25% rate of retention, and along with addiction counseling one’s chances of success increase to 80%. Therefore, drug counseling plays a vital role and an integral part of your process of regaining a sober life.
Cravings for opioids can occur months and even years after your last use. The intensity of craving can force any individual trying to kick a habit at risk for relapse. That’s one reason why counseling is a paramount part of the treatment. Addiction counseling can help you recognize events, triggers or social situations that associated with your past drug abuse.
The likelihood of overcoming addiction is significantly increased when treatment includes medication (such as Suboxone), combined with drug counseling. Opiate dependence is not just a physical condition – it includes emotions, behaviors and even surrounding settings that are all part of the addiction. That’s where counseling can help. Addiction counseling can help you begin to make changes in your lifestyle, your behavior and keep you focus on your addiction recovery.
