Embeda Addiction Treatment And Rehab
While Embeda does contain morphine, it also has another active ingredient which is naltrexone. Naltrexone is an opioid antagonist, often used to help people who are addicted to opioids or dependent on them. Naltrexone can block the effects of opioids and reduce drug cravings. Naltrexone is included in the Embeda formulation as a way to reduce the risk of misuse and addiction. If someone takes Embeda as prescribed, the naltrexone shouldn’t be absorbed. If someone tries to misuse it by crushing it, for example, the naltrexone should reverse the effects of the morphine. While the risk of misuse and addiction is theoretically lower with Embeda, it can still occur because of the potency of the morphine. When someone is addicted to Embeda or any opioid, they have certain treatment options available to them. Most addiction treatment programs begin with detox, and then participants will transition into an inpatient or outpatient program.
- What is the severity of the addiction being treated? Is it a relatively new addiction, or is it ongoing and long-term?

- Could the person have a mental health condition that needs to be treated like depression or anxiety?
- Have other treatment options been tried before?
- How comfortable is the participant when it comes to leaving home?
- Would the person benefit from a structured, supervised environment?
- Are there physical health concerns that may need to be addressed?
