Wellness – Opioid Recovery is about changing Everyday
The first step in treatment is not detoxification. It involves getting you stabilized, including managing withdrawals, assessment, medication introduction, and becoming involved in counseling/therapy.
What is Wellness?
Wellness is a conscious, self-directed process of changing to achieve ones full potential. It is on-going and is different for each individual. Being well, living in a state of wellness means a multidimensional and holistic, involving lifestyle where your mental and spiritual well-being are promoted by your environment and the new found activities in your life.
