Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Helps Opioid Addiction

Potential for addiction exists in everybody who uses opioids. It’s impossible to know who will become dependent on or abuse opioids because of their personal history or how long they’ve used them.

All these drugs—legal and illegal, stolen and shared—contribute to the epidemic of drug overdose deaths plaguing the world today.

Rehabilitation and management of pain and withdrawal symptoms often require a course of methadone, which itself is an opioid.

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy helps opioid addiction by reducing the amount of methadone needed by patients.
