Many addicts and alcoholics have honestly desired recovery but have not felt welcomed at recovery meetings.
Why? In short, not everyone’s healthy even if they’re sober!
Therefore people who are currently utilizing evidence-based science to aid in their recovery sometimes feel unwelcomed.
Medication, such as Methadone, Naltrexone, Suboxone, Buprenorphine (Buprenex), Disulfiram (Antabuse), Acamprosate (Campral), Paroxetine (Paxil), Modafinil (Provigil), Desipramine (Norpramin), Mirtazapine (Remeron), Bupropion (Buproban), Gabapentin (Fanatrex), Vigabatrin (Sabril), Baclofen (Kemstro), Topiramate (Topamax) among others are approved by the medical community to be prescribed for various drug and alcohol use disorders.
It is inevitable that there will be more medications developed which can save lives. For the basis of this group: RECOVERY IS SIMPLY TO RECOVER FROM AN UNSAFE LIFESTYLE! Here at Medication-Assisted Recovery Anonymous (AKA MARA) you’re always welcome!
