Finding Relief Without Drugs

Finding Relief without Drugs

Bottom Line:

With the opioid crisis affecting millions of people, it may come as no surprise that there’s probably someone in your circle of friends and family struggling with opioid misuse or addiction. For those people, it can feel nearly impossible to find a way out. That potent combination of pain relief and euphoria characteristic of opioids makes them so incredibly addictive to both the brain and body. However, while opioids were once the standard, recent research has given people struggling with addiction new hope.

Why it Matters:

Top clinical research facilities have started recommending a team approach to combat opioid dependence. A combination of medical and alternative care (and quite often Chiropractic) are being used to provide people with a safe, natural path to recovery and pain relief.

Here are a few key aspects shared by many successful opioid addiction treatment programs:
