Alcohol Abuse

Alcohol abuse and addiction can lead to many social, relational, and health problems. Many people who abuse alcohol do so to escape problems that they are facing in their lives. However, alcohol abuse can lead to addiction. Over time, chronic alcohol abuse can result in liver disease, heart disease, digestive problems, cancer, a weakened immune system, and mental health issues. Knowing when to seek help for alcohol addiction is important. If you regularly binge drink, drink every day, or suffer withdrawal symptoms when you go without alcohol, you should seek help. Haile Medical Group offers compassionate treatment for alcohol abuse and addiction and can help to put you on track for recovery.

Opiate Addiction

Addictions to opiates have reached epidemic levels in Florida and across the U.S. Many people develop opiate addictions after they have been prescribed narcotic medications for pain after they suffer injuries. Unfortunately, opiates are extremely addictive and can cause people to turn to street drugs to get the same high. If you suffer from opioid addiction, getting help is important. The withdrawal symptoms from opioids can be painful, causing some people to resist getting treatment. However, the Haile Medical Group offers suboxone treatment in combination with counseling to help patients to recover from addictions to opiates. Suboxone helps to alleviate withdrawal symptoms so that you can focus on your recovery.
