#1 Are patients given other drugs to ease their detox?
We preferentially use non-addictive supplements and medication to assist in the detox. The NAD/BR+ formula is completely natural and nutritional—made up of substances a healthy body produces anyway. Medical supervision ensures that detoxing patients do not experience seizures or any other acute medical condition.
#2 Is NAD/BR+ a cure for addiction?
#3 Can the patient ever resume use?
#4 After treatment, is normal life possible?
After treatment, the patient is no longer physically addicted and may undoubtedly resume a healthy life. However, an addicted person will typically not have been leading a normal life for some time. To rejoin the world successfully, a variety of aftercare coping strategies can be helpful. We are happy to refer patients to any of the following:
- AA, NA, and other 12-step programs
- Individual psychotherapy
- Group psychotherapy
- Family psychotherapy
- Nutrition programs
- Exercise programs
- Affinity and other social groups
- Residential and/or intensive outpatient programs
#5 How do I begin?
Call us at (321) 636-4357 to speak with a team member and schedule an appointment. Please arrive 15 minutes before your first appointment and bring your photo ID and insurance information if applicable.
#6 What should I bring?
A change of clothes for 10 days. Please check with www.weather.com using Cocoa, FL, zip code 32922 to determine what you will be comfortable in wearing. You may bring any quiet activity that does not disturb others. Television and Internet access are provided. We ask that patients keep phone conversations to a minimum.
How long should I be in treatment?
Anywhere between 6 months and a year, but a taper schedule is not forced. A patient can go through treatment at their own pace based on their own discretion.
Is suboxone addictive?
No, suboxone is not an addictive substance. It is, however, a partial opioid-antagonist so you will become dependent upon it. That being said, there is a major difference between addiction and dependence. Addiction is when the substance is in control of you, whereas dependence is when you are utilizing a substance in order to gain a desired response.
Can I discontinue the medication at any time?
No, you will need to taper off of the medication. This process usually takes about 6 months.
How long are average appointments?
Average appointments can range anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour for a first appointment and between 15 and 30 minutes for a follow-up.
Do you prescribe other types of medication?
Yes we do, except for other noncontrolled medications like amphetamines and benzodiazepines.
Where do I get my medication?
You do not pick it up directly from our office, instead you will pick it up from any major pharmacy location.
