No one plans to develop a dependency on any substance, legal or not. And addiction doesn’t always begin with illicit drugs; sometimes it begins innocently enough among pain management patients legitimately seeking relief. Unfortunately, addiction doesn’t discriminate, and people of all ages, occupations, and economic statuses can develop a dependency on opioids. But Alpha Care Medical is here to help. Whether you or a loved one have developed a dependency on hydrocodone, heroin, or any other opioid, you can break the cycle of addiction with Alpha Care Medical’s comprehensive, compassionate opioid treatment program.

In 2016, nearly 116 people died every day as a result of opioid abuse, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. By 2017, the opioid epidemic was declared a public health crisis. Opioid addiction affects nearly 2.1 million people in the United States, and its devastating effects can be seen in communities throughout the country.
