Medically Supervised Medication Program in Georgia
A Safe, Evidence-Based Approach to Recovery
Can I take medication once I start my recovery?
This is a common question asked by people who begin their journey through addiction treatment. It’s true that generally speaking, taking certain medications can be a bad idea for people in recovery. However, there are situations where medication can actually be an asset. If participating in a medication program, it is important to talk extensively with your physician and stick closely to the routine prescribed for you.
Once detoxification is completed, it is worth discussing the possibility of a medication assisted treatment program with your recovery team. At Mount Sinai Wellness Center, our experienced physicians can help you choose a safe, evidence-based program that fits your needs.
