Treating Pain Without Opiates

After having surgery, Ted found himself in a great deal of pain and was prescribed Opiates to help manage his discomfort. Although the painkillers helped at first, they soon became a problem. It became clear Ted wasn’t going to be able to stop using the opiates on his own, so his wife and children found The Treatment Center online and called for help.

While under our care, Ted benefited greatly from the pain management program, which provides evidence-based treatment for pain sufferers by offering a variety of holistic therapies. These holistic methods helped Ted manage his pain with treatments like massages, acupuncture, laser therapy, hot rocks and chiropractic services. Holistic therapies are also designed to reduce cravings, help with anxiety, promote relaxation and encourage general wellness.

In this video, Ted shares how his life has been renewed and his gratitude towards The Treatment Center. Watch his Hope Diaries video to hear his full story:

“With therapy, the chiropractor, and the massages, it’s the way to go to stay away from the opioids. Because those pills, they help you at first, but in the long run, all they’re doing is hurting you.

Hello, my name’s Ted, and before The Treatment Center, I was in really bad pain.

When it all started, I had surgery and it just progressed from there. They kept feeding me pain pills and I didn’t understand the pain pills at the time. It just got to the point, over a six-year period, I woke up one morning and man, and I was out. I just couldn’t handle the withdrawal that I was going through.

So my wife called my kids over and they did an intervention, got online, and found The Treatment Center. They got me here and since I’ve been here, I have learned a lot about opiates: what they really do, what it does to the brain, and what the brain does to compensate for the pain pill.

I’m a firm believer in that because of the treatment that The Treatment Center has found for me, which is in the holistic part of it. I go through acupuncture, hot rocks, laser therapy and the chiropractor.

Then the massages that they give here, I get up off the table I feel like I’m floating.

They’ve done a number on me to where I don’t feel as if I need another surgery. I don’t feel as if I need the rods and screws and all that stuff put in my back. It’s really been a Godsend and I’d like to thank them for that. They’ve done a lot for me and I hope they can do more for more people that’s coming through.

If you really want to get off your addiction, get away from it and get your life back, I highly recommend you call The Treatment Center. For what it’s done for me, I know it can do for you.”
