National Recovery Month: Sharing Personal Stories of Opiate Addiction

September is National Recovery Month, and UCS Healthcare wants to remind the public that no journey through substance use disorder, addiction and opioid recovery is the same. Although many circumstances can be similar or you might notice some commonalities in opiate use disorder recovery stories, this type of situation can happen to people from all walks of life. Our team at UCS Healthcare helps Iowans by providing medication, therapy and counseling options that treat the patients’ whole health while they work towards recovery.
