" The Vivitrol medication that Addiction Solutions of Nantucket made available was a complete lifesaver. It allowed me to walk into recovery with more ease. I was able to focus on AA and my therapy because I did not have triggers to drink. I think Vivitrol combined with a good recovery program is priceless! "

"Addiction Solutions has been an integral part of my recovery. A few years ago, I was prescribed painkillers for a surgery which led to an opiate relapse for me. A good friend suggested I visit Addiction Solutions rather than fall back into using Heroin.The staff there worked with me to find a solution to my predicament and I tried Suboxone for the first time. To my astonishment, I found that with the right dosage my cravings subsided and I have been able to be a productive member of the community. With the counseling of the staff, I have lowered my doses down to no more than what I need. I feel that the support I get from the program has been integral to leading a life that “keeps me out of trouble.” I am very grateful that the program is here on island, and I highly recommend it to anyone who might be struggling with addiction themselves.

" Addiction Solutions played a key role in saving my life. As a struggling addict, I had multiple attempts at recovery prior to receiving help from Addiction Solutions. During all of those precious attempts, the mental obsession to use opiates in particular was so strong that I repeatedly relapsed. I desperately wanted to get and stay clean, but that was not enough to rid my brain of the intense obsession. I knew that my choices were: Death or try Medication Assisted Treatment (Suboxone). Thankfully, I made the decision to try the MAT. During the time I was on medication and attending Addiction Solutions, I was able to get my life back on track by ridding myself of addict behaviors (lying, stealing, cheating, etc.). I had gainful employment and mended relationships with myself and others. When I felt ready, I was able to successfully get off the medication and continue my recovery. Addiction Solutions in combination with therapy and community support networks save my life. "
