Success Stories

Our patients that broke the chains.

They fought. They won. You can too.

The Vivitrol medication that Addiction Solutions of Nantucket made available was a complete lifesaver. It allowed me to engage with the recovery process 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 team of therapists is priceless program!

Addiction Solutions has been an integral part of my recovery. A few years ago, I was prescribed painkillers for surgery which led to an opiate relapse. 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 my cravings subsided with the correct dosage, 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. 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.

Addiction Solutions played a crucial role in saving my life. As a struggling addict, I had multiple attempts at recovery before receiving help from Addiction Solutions. During all of those previous attempts, the mental obsession with using opiates in particular, was so intense that I repeatedly relapsed. I desperately wanted to get and stay clean, but that was not enough to rid my brain of the fierce obsession. I knew that my choices were: Death or trying Medication-Assisted Treatment (Suboxone). Thankfully, I decided to try the MAT. When 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 saved my life.
