Description
							Drug overdoses are now the leading cause of death for Americans un­der the age of 50, claiming more lives than the AIDs epidemic did at its peak. Opioid abuse accounts for two-thirds of these overdoses, with over 100 Americans dying from opioid overdoses every day.

Now Overcoming Opioid Addiction provides a comprehensive medical guide for opioid use disorder (OUD) sufferers, their loved ones, clinicians, and other professionals. Here is expertly presented, urgently needed in­formation and guidance, including:

• Why treating OUD is unlike treating any other form of drug dependency
• The science that underlies addiction to opioids, and a clear analysis of why this epidemic has become so deadly
• The different stages and effective methods of treatment, including detoxification vs. maintenance medications, as well as behavioral therapies
• How to deal with relapses and how to thrive despite OUD
• Plus a chapter tailored to families with crucial, potentially life-saving information, such as how to select the best treatment program, manage medications, and reverse an overdose.
