Opioid/Heroin Epidemic: What You Need To Know

St. Johns County and surrounding areas are being affected by the opioid/heroin epidemic.  Opioid addiction can be very frightening – not only for the individual with the addiction but for their family and friends as well.  Breaking free of opioid, heroin, or prescription drug abuse takes effort and it’s difficult to do safely alone.  EPIC can help and at the same time, we can provide support to family members.

Our EPIC Recovery Center offers supervised detoxification services in order to manage the withdrawal symptoms.  Detox is a medical intervention that manages an individual safely through the process of withdrawal.  We also offer medically assisted treatment (MAT) which is helpful in achieving long-term sobriety from opiates/heroin/opioids.  For our MAT program, we use Vivitrol which prevents relapse for opioid dependence after detox.  It is a once a month, non addictive medication used in conjunction with counseling.

Research shows that when dealing with an opioid addiction, the most successful treatment combines MAT and counseling.  In addition to MAT and symptom control, EPIC incorporates counseling in our detox center as well as offering residential treatment and outpatient counseling for clients who have completed detoxification.

Please call the EPIC Recovery Center for more information – (904) 417-7100.
