Dr. Hefter's bio
This content was provided by Dr. Hefter "The Life Group serves residents throughout the state of Alabama, including the communities of Birmingham, Decatur, and Anniston. Dr. Steven Hefter has over 30 years of experience. As a graduate of St. George's University of Medicine, the doctor specialized in medication-based treatment options for opioid addiction. With medication-based treatment options, patients gain their recovery without having to experience the side effects of withdrawal and behavioral inconsistencies. At The Life Group, Dr. Hefter and his staff have developed recovery programs based on specific medications such as Suboxone, buprenorphine, and Zubsolv. With these addiction medications, the doctor can create individualized treatment plans for each patient. The plan will revolve around the person's degree of addiction, the type of drug they are addicted to, and any other health concerns that may affect her recovery. By using medications to help patients break their addictions, they are able to regain a sense of self and have better control over the decisions they make while they are being treated."
