Risks Associated with Prolonged Painkiller Abuse
Painkillers are often prescribed to patients following a surgery, accident, or some type of operation that requires a medication to dull the associated pain. Respiratory Depression is a common fear among painkiller addicts because it essentially causes breathing to slow down to a point where the individual stops breathing completely. Evans wants to help anyone who is living with a painkiller addiction to seek treatment so that Respiratory Depression, and/or painkill addiction, does not happen.

The providers with Evan’s treat our patients addicted to painkiller with Suboxone.
- Suboxone is a medication that is under the Buprenorphine family. Suboxone is an opioid that effectively activates the opioid receptors on nerve cells. It has a long half life (lasting effects), which is one reason why it’s so effective in treating opiate addiction. Suboxone evens out the opiate addiction so that there are no longer the highs and lows that are associated with short-term opioids, like heroin.
It may seem difficult to understand when you or a loved one is struggling through an addiction, but along with medication there needs to be attention given to the mental health. We are here to provide this service to our patients.
- We will be by your side to support you through the mental and emotional hardships that come with overcoming opiate dependence. Medication and mental health counseling are key to a long life of clean living.
