What is addiction?
Addiction can result from a single or combination of genetic, social, environmental and psychological factors.
Addiction represents a maladaptive, problematic relationship with a substance that creates negative consequences for an individual in their life. Types of addiction include substance addiction, physiological dependence & behavioral addiction.
We offer a full spectrum of substance abuse treatment services based upon individual needs as assessed through comprehensive evaluations. Your individualized addiction plan is customized according to the addiction severity, presence of co-occurring mental health disorders, and your unique needs.
We provide education about symptoms and the possible physiological and psychosocial causes. Our aim is to arm our clients with information regarding their particular addiction, so they can develop sound strategies for managing the addictive mechanisms in their lives and build long-term healing from their addiction.
Suboxone is an FDA-approved treatment for heroin and other opiate addictions. Our strict controlled medication-assisted treatment program for opioid dependence include the use of buprenorphine (Suboxone) to complement the education, counseling and other support measures that focus on the behavioral aspects of opioid addiction. This medication can allow one to regain a normal state of mind free of withdrawal, cravings and the drug-induced highs and lows of addiction which if untreated can lead to relapse.
Support for staying sober
In recovery, it will be important to maintain relationships with people you can rely on for strength and encouragement.
Joining a support or self-help groups also can make it easier to adjust to living sober. By avoiding situations that might make you consider using again, and staying away from people in your life who misuse drugs or alcohol, you can create a safe and healthy environment for your recovery.
