This medical treatment* helps you withdraw from opiates and opioids (such as heroin and fentanyl), alcohol, benzos, suboxone, barbiturates and amphetamines. You work one-on-one with careful, compassionate professionals. They provide treatment customized to you. You also meet NA and AA volunteers, who introduce you to 12-Step recovery principles and the recovering community.
