What happens after I complete the treatment?

Sparrow Ascent is designed to make overcoming opioid withdrawal easier. But overcoming withdrawal is just the first step on your recovery journey. What happens next is even more important and up to you. Your telehealth provider may prescribe additional out-patient counseling or other programs to ensure you address the circumstances that led to opioid use in the first place.
