Where to Get Help for MS Contin AbuseYour healthcare provider is a great place to start when searching for help for MS Contin abuse or addiction. He or she will be able to help you deal with this abuse or may suggest other resources for you.
Depending on the situation, the first step in treating MS Contin addiction may be to slowly decrease the dose and attempt to treat withdrawal symptoms (see MS Contin Withdrawal). This process of detoxification could then be followed with one of many behavioral therapies. Contingency management, for example, improves treatment outcomes by enabling people to earn vouchers for drug-free urine tests; the vouchers can be exchanged for items that promote healthy living. Cognitive behavioral therapies, which teach people skills to recognize risky situations, avoid drug use, and cope more effectively with problems, are proving beneficial. Recovery support groups may also be effective in conjunction with behavioral therapy.
