Addiction Treatment

What is addiction?

An addiction is a brain disorder. When people drink alcohol or take drugs (whether prescribed or illegal), they initially like how the substance makes them feel. Over time, their brain and body develop a tolerance to the substance, and they need to take more to get the same “feel good” effect.

Ongoing use of alcohol or drugs changes how your brain works. These changes may affect how you feel and behave, and you may need to take the drug to feel normal. 

An addiction to alcohol or drugs is a disease. People with an addiction to alcohol or opioids need medical care and treatment from experts like those at ReNew Infusions and East Valley Serenity Health.

What happens during addiction treatment?

The team at ReNew Infusions and East Valley Serenity Health takes a holistic and individualized approach to care. Addiction treatment may depend on many factors, including the substance you’re addicted to, how it’s affected your physical and mental well-being, and your willingness to get help.

Before starting any treatment, the experts at ReNew Infusions and East Valley Serenity Health conduct a comprehensive physical and mental health evaluation, which may include wellness labs to assess overall health and look for underlying health issues.

Your addiction treatment plan may include individual, family, or group counseling. Your plan may also include naltrexone, which is a medication FDA-approved to treat alcohol and opioid addiction.  

Naltrexone works by stopping your alcohol or opioid cravings and blocking the “feel good” effects of the drug. ReNew Infusions and East Valley Serenity Health may provide naltrexone as an injection or pill. 

The team may also recommend ketamine infusions as an addiction treatment. For people with an opioid addiction, ketamine infusions help with both the addiction and pain.
