Foothills uses conventional therapies of Buprenorphine and Suboxone for Opioid Use Disorder (OUD) treatment. Additionally, we utilize natural remedies that include dietary supplements, nutritional therapy and an overall approach to health and wellness. The Foothills team can also assist patients with non pharmaceutical treatment for chronic pain and pain management.
Overcoming opioid addiction, which is a chemical dependence on prescription painkillers like oxycodone or narcotics like heroin, can be accomplished with the right approach to preventing relapse and improving overall health.
According to the National Institute of Health, the key to curing addiction could lie in balancing neurotransmitters in the brain. The brain produces “feel good” chemicals called neurotransmitters such as serotonin, dopamine, and endorphins, that work together to give feelings of reward, happiness, and satisfaction. The National Institute of Drug Addiction (NIDA) stated recently that addiction is connected to the brain’s reward centers. When the “feel good” chemicals are blocked from the brain’s receptors, we feel pain, discomfort, and stress.
Foothills Integrated Health combines an integrated health approach with conventional therapies to achieve a healthier, happier lifestyle for those dealing with OUD. Call today for more information, 303.862.1504
