Treatment of addiction will be tailored to each person individually. Some suffer from several addictions and require several different treatment methods, where others can sometimes be treated with a single medication, once a month. Our goal is to figure out what method is best for each of our patients. With proper treatment and assistance in seeking happiness, it is possible for anyone to recover from addiction.
Detoxification, commonly referred to as detox, is a medical treatment used to overcome the immediate symptoms of withdrawal which are common with the disease of Addiction. This is typically done at an impatient facility so to ensure the patient is as comfortable as possible thru the withdrawal/detox stage of treatment. We do not offer an inpatient detox at our facility yet, however we have many places that we can refer you to that do. Typically our treatment starts after the Detox phase is completed.
Not all recovery patients need to use medication to overcome their Addiction. However, some patients will need to use medication for the rest of their lives. Each individual is different and every addiction problem must be treated uniquely. Our Doctor believes that the key to successful recovery is healing from the inside out. Therefore we utilize all of the tools available to us to see our patients find a new sense of self. There is a lot of research into what it takes for our brains to heal from the damage that is caused by addiction, especially with opiates, stimulants, and hallucinogens. Our goal is to use medication to allow the brain to heal while also helping our patients find happiness with themselves again. We must be happy to heal and this is the essence of Healing from the inside-out!
In connection with medication, counseling is another key step in recovery. It is essential to healing from the inside, and imperative for those who use drugs because of depression or an overall sense of unhappiness. While in some cases the court forces addicts to enter counseling, we have found it common for undesired counseling to be detrimental to recovery. Our goal is to see you fully recover from your addiction in your own way. Therefore, we offer multiple avenues for this part of the process. Each is designed around ensuring maximum benefit for the patient and tailored to fit each individual.
