New Patients Seen Daily
Opioid use disorder is increasing at an alarming rate throughout the United States. Unlike other substance use disorders, the use of opioids can develop physical dependency within a short period.
The continuous use of opioids can result in memory loss, poor decision-making, poor cognitive processing, fatigue, numbness, irregular heartbeat, anxiety, and hallucinations. Opioids can also act as depressants and can slow down the body and cause respiratory depression.
Whether your opioid addiction stems from prescribed pain management medications or the misuse of illegal opioids, you will need professional help to get rid of this addiction.
When an individual stops using opioids abruptly, it results in severe symptoms, such as generalized pain, cramps, nausea, chills, vomiting, diarrhea, restlessness, anxiety, insomnia, and extremely intense cravings.
Who We Help
At Medasic, we offer opioid treatment programs to help all those people who are suffering from opioid use disorder and wish to live a sober and meaningful life. To help people fight off their opioid addiction, we have set up our buprenorphine (SUBOXONE) clinics in Greer, Boiling Springs, Seneca, and are also expanding to Anderson in South Carolina soon.
What is Buprenorphine
Buprenorphine is a medication approved by the FDA for opioid addiction treatment. It is an opioid partial agonist and can make it easier for patients to get away from stronger opioids. Though buprenorphine also produces euphoria, its effect is much weaker than opioids, including methadone, fentanyl, and heroin.
Buprenorphine treatment helps reduce physical dependency on opioids significantly diminishes the effects of withdrawal symptoms and cravings. Besides, it also helps increase safety in case of overdoses and lowers the potential for misuse and abuse.
When a patient discontinues opioids, is no longer having cravings for opioids and is experiencing only a few to no side effects, our doctors adjust the dosage of buprenorphine.
When you reach out to us for buprenorphine treatment in Seneca (Oconee County), Anderson, Greer (Greenville County), Boiling Springs (Spartanburg County), Gaffney (Cherokee County) or another service locations in the Upstate of South Carolina, you have peace of mind. Our experts will create a tailored opioid addiction treatment plan for you because each person responds to the treatment differently. Meaning, the length of time buprenorphine is prescribed varies from one person to another. To prevent possible relapse, some patients may need to engage in an ongoing treatment - with or without buprenorphine.
What is MAT
This medication-assisted treatment (MAT) is not all about just prescribing medication to curb the cravings of patients. We prescribe buprenorphine as part of a comprehensive opioid addiction treatment plan that also includes counseling and behavioral therapies.
When you visit our buprenorphine clinics in any part of the Upstate, you will receive treatment and full support from our community of addiction specialist, mental health experts, and counselors.
We offer a holistic and comprehensive approach to help you overcome opioid addiction and create a beautiful, happy life. You must understand that opioid addiction treatment requires your dedication and time. You might not find it easy but it is possible with the right counseling and support. Our clinics regardless of their locations are completely free from stigma, bias, and judgment.
If you, your loved one, or a friend are struggling with opioid addiction, please feel free to call or text us to speak with our compassionate and caring staff at 864.334.7727.
