Addiction Medicine Q & A

What is addiction medicine?

Addiction medicine is a highly specialized field that focuses on preventing and treating all types of addictions. The team at Corebella Health & Wellness goes beyond helping you safely detox and successfully recover from your addiction. 

They have years of experience providing comprehensive care for the full spectrum of physical, mental health, and social challenges associated with addictions. 

What substance use disorders does addiction medicine treat? 

Addictions develop from a wide range of addictive substances. No matter which substance you use, you can get the help you need at Corebella Health & Wellness. 

The team frequently treats patients with addictions to: 

  • Alcohol
  • Tobacco
  • Marijuana
  • Opioids (e.g., heroin, fentanyl, oxycodone, Vicodin®)
  • Stimulants (e.g., methamphetamines, cocaine)
  • Barbiturates (tranquilizers)
  • Hallucinogens (e.g., LSD, PCP, ketamine, ecstasy)

They also offer specialized programs for people who want to stop or reduce their dose of prescription medications.

For example, you may take prescription opioids and need intensive pain management to taper off the medication. Or, you may take suppressants like benzodiazepines to treat severe anxiety and worry about becoming dependent. 

When should I get help from addiction medicine specialists?

It can be hard to recognize when using a substance turns into an addiction, but there are signs alerting you to the problem. 

You need help when you:

  • Have cravings you can't resist
  • Can't stop or have withdrawal symptoms if you do
  • Need larger amounts to get the same high
  • Spend too much time using or recovering from the substance
  • Stop meeting work and family responsibilities
  • Give up social or recreational activities to take drugs
  • Keep using the substance when you recognize its negative effects
  • Often feel irritable or can't control your emotions

When tremors, shakes, and depression develop if you stop using drugs and improve by taking the substance, it's a sure sign of an addiction. 

What treatments does addiction medicine use?

Corebella Health & Wellness offers integrative care for addictions, including: 

  • Medication-assisted treatment (MAT)
  • Medication management
  • Counseling and therapy (individual and group)
  • Support groups
  • Primary care for physical conditions
  • Pain management

As part of your MAT, your provider prescribes medications that stop cravings and withdrawals and help balance the brain chemicals affected by addiction. MAT gives you the ability to safely detox and stay in recovery.
