Addiction Treatment Q&A

What is addiction?

Addiction is a brain disorder that causes intense and compulsive urges to use a substance like drugs or alcohol. While medical researchers don’t know why some people develop an addiction and others don’t, studies show that people who have an addiction develop differences in the parts of their brain that regulate impulse control and decision making. 

When should I talk to a doctor about addiction treatment?

As with many illnesses, the earlier you start treatment for addiction, the better. Some of the warning signs of addiction include:

  • Feeling frequent and intense urges to use a substance 
  • Continuing to use a substance despite increasingly negative consequences
  • Needing more of the substance to feel the same effects 
  • Trying and failing to stop using the drug
  • Experiencing withdrawal symptoms

If any of these symptoms sound familiar, and you’re ready to regain control of your life and health, contact the team at Real Health Medical to learn about your addiction treatment options.

What is included in addiction treatment?

The team at Real Health Medical provides highly personalized addiction treatment services, combining innovative functional and integrative medicine therapies. They offer addiction treatment for alcohol, narcotics, benzodiazepines, heroin, cocaine, and more. 

The team begins with extensive testing to assess your biochemistry, neurotransmitter, and nutritional status. Once your provider understands your needs, they create your medically-directed outpatient addiction treatment plan.

Depending on your needs, your treatment plan might include IV NAD therapy to detox your body and restore your optimal body function. 

The team offers a wide range of detoxification therapies, including amino acid and neurotransmitter balancing treatments, glutathione, and N-Acetyl-Cysteine (NAC) antioxidants, and hormone optimization therapy. 

They design your treatment plan to reduce withdrawal symptoms and eliminate your cravings. Your provider can help reduce brain fog and improve your mood, cognitive function, energy, sleep, and overall sense of well-being.

The team at Real Health Medical also helps you maintain long-term success with accountability and coaching. Additionally, addiction treatment at Real Health Medical doesn’t rely on pharmaceuticals like Suboxone® or Subutex®.
