Substance Abuse Program

Substance abuse (or substance use disorder) refers to the misuse of alcohol, drugs, or prescription medication. A person with substance use disorder may have an addiction that makes it difficult for them to control their use of drugs or alcohol. Over time, this addiction can change their brain chemistry and behaviors, leading to psychological or physical harm. We'll start with an initial psychiatric evaluation and diagnosis. we'll ask about your substance use and how it has affected your relationships, home life, work, and more. We may also order blood tests or other lab work to help us get a better understanding of your overall health. Substance abuse treatments typically involve interventional, peer counseling or behavioral therapy, and prescription medication to curb cravings and withdrawal symptoms.

Drug Abuse

We provide comprehensive treatment programs encompassing both detoxification and rehabilitation for individuals facing addiction challenges with opiates/opioids (such as Heroin, Percocet, Oxycodone, Fentanyl), benzodiazepines (including Xanax, Ativan), and stimulants (such as Adderall and Ritalin).

About Us
How do I know if I need help for an addiction?

In some cases, patients are aware that their addiction is negatively affecting one or more aspects of their life, such as their family, relationships, health, or job. Other times, patients may not be aware of the implications of their addiction until they are pointed out by a friend or loved one. If you or someone you know is showing signs of addiction and/or you suspect that an addiction is interfering with their health and well-being, don't hesitate to call us.

How long does it take to recover from an addiction?

Substance abuse recovery can be a lifelong journey in many cases, but it is important to understand that each patient's addiction, response to treatment, and overall journey is unique. Our caring team will work closely with you at each stage of your substance abuse treatment and recovery to help ensure you are successful in the long term.

Will I need inpatient therapy for substance abuse?

Again, each patient's journey with addiction and recovery is unique. In some cases, outpatient therapies are appropriate and effective for helping a patient overcome their addiction, while other patients may benefit most by an inpatient treatment, time in a sober living facility, or other option.
