Addiction to Prescription Opiates and Heroin Addressed by New Resource
Date:12/12/2013

ng," said John Knight, MD, a leading pediatrician at Harvard Medical School specializing in the diagnosis and treatment of adolescent substance abuse and the Director of the Center for Adolescent Substance Abuse Research at Children's Hospital in Boston.

He continues, "Unfortunately, it has been subject to controversy and stigma. Yet the neuroscience of addiction and cravings helps explain why, when properly used and overseen, medication-assisted treatment can be truly life saving for adolescents, young adults, and their families. I see it working all the time. When kids come into treatment, their lives are just chaotic. Parents are desperate – they don't know what to do or where to turn. The most important thing is to bring stability into the situation, and the best way to do that is with medication."

Multimedia Resource Breaks Down Complex Path to Addiction and Recovery for Families in Crisis

An integral part of taking a fresh look at the issue is the medication-assisted treatment e-book, which provides a detailed plan of action for getting treatment for a child or loved one, based in science, research and medicine. It helps inform parents and caregivers about medication-assisted treatment options, especially when many are not aware that medication can be an important part of successful recovery.

Added Pasierb, "Medication-assisted treatment is addressing an urgent need and can help treat prescription opioid addiction effectively. In much the same way that insulin in an effective tool in diabetes care, it establishes medicine as a legitimate component in achieving recovery. Families can, and should, insist that their treatment providers, doctors and therapists examine – or in some cases, rethink – their stance on these potentially life-saving medications.
