Addiction Medicine

What is addiction?

Addiction, also known as substance use disorder, is a chronic disease that leads to an inability to control the use of substances such as alcohol, opioids, illegal drugs, and tobacco. If you suffer from addiction, you continue to abuse substances even when doing so has negative consequences for your work, finances, personal relationships, or physical health.

Dr. Greenberg at Neu Urgent Care is an addiction medicine expert who creates treatment plans based on the individual needs of each patient. Addiction medicine plans help you end your dependency on substances for long-term recovery. 

How do I know if I need treatment for addiction?

Addiction is a disease that affects your brain’s cognitive function. This prevents some people from being aware that they have the disorder. It is time to seek help if you recognize these signs in yourself or a family member:

  • Inability to control how much or how often you use the substance
  • Needing more and more of the substance
  • Spending a lot of time and money obtaining the substance
  • Not meeting obligations or responsibilities
  • Engaging in risky behavior under the influence
  • Failed attempts to stop using the substance

It is challenging to admit to yourself or your family that you can’t control your use of certain substances. Try to remember, there’s no shame in getting help for substance abuse disorder. The right treatment helps you rebuild your life and personal relationships.

How is addiction treated?

When you begin an addiction recovery program at Neu Urgent Care, Dr. Greenberg customizes your treatment based on the type of substance use disorder, your personal health history, and other individual factors. Your addiction recovery plan may include:

  • Behavioral counseling 
  • Individual or group therapy
  • Prescription medications
  • Treatment of substance-related medical conditions
  • A long-term follow-up plan

In the case of opioid use disorder, medications such as VIVITROL® or Suboxone prevent withdrawal symptoms and help your body gradually wean off its dependency on the drug. These medications are highly effective in treating opioid addiction.
