Our Philosophy

Stop Stigma, Treat Addiction Now. Addiction is a chronic brain disease and has devastating impacts not only on the person suffering from the disease but also on the individual’s loved ones. A person with addiction is aware of the harms of using dangerous drugs like heroin and prescription painkillers. The individual tries to quit, but cannot stop using drugs because of the imbalance in brain chemistry from long-term drug use.

Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) saves lives. MAT combined with substance abuse counseling increases the probability of a person remaining in treatment. FDA-approved medications such as Buprenorphine (Suboxone), methadone, or Vivitrol have proven to prevent overdose-related deaths. Unfortunately, many people in our society still believe in the myth that addiction is a choice rather than a disease. However, the science is very clear and addiction is a chronic brain disease that causes the loss of control pertaining to judgment. Hundreds of thousands of people do not have access to MAT and are still at risk for overdose-related death. Due to this risk, we cannot afford to stigmatize our patients by believing in the myth that “treating addiction with medication is replacing one drug for another”.

At Right Choice Health Group, we believe a person with addiction should be treated with respect and dignity without further shaming them or stigmatizing them. We believe that the stigma is more dangerous than overdose itself.
