Because many people who struggle with this disease have a substance of choice, we create treatment plans that address common problems that people abusing a specific substance face while also addressing needs unique to them.
Alcohol abuse falls on a wide range of severity. With prolonged abuse serious health problems can develop and the risk of alcohol-related injury increases.
Because alcohol abuse is often tied to mental health, our alcohol addiction treatment helps patients understand the root causes of their drinking while developing healthier coping skills. The detox process for alcohol can also be dangerous so our alcohol and drug rehabs include medical monitoring and medications as needed.
Opioids include prescription painkillers, heroin, and synthetic opioids, and their abuse has increased drastically over the last few decades. These drugs can be highly addictive is misused as well as dangerous because of the risk of overdose.
Opioid addiction treatment typically involves careful monitoring during detox to ensure a safe start to recovery as well as educating patient on alternative means of managing pain. When people neglect to get help for the abuse of prescription opioids, their substance abuse will often escalate to heroin use. Heroin treatment can be more challenging because the body’s dependence on opioids tends to be stronger.
Cocaine is a powerful stimulant. Because of its quick and intense high, people quickly become addicted to it and crave this euphoria.
Our cocaine addiction treatment plans often focus on helping people cope with triggers that lead them to use cocaine as well as finding other natural ways to experience this euphoria.
Methamphetamine or meth can quickly lead to the deterioration of a person’s appearance and physical health. Long-term abuse can also lead to serious mental health troubles as well.
Our meth treatment programs help users regain control and work toward healing both mentally and physically.
Benzodiazepines or benzos include a variety of medications such as Xanax and Valium that are used to treat sleep problems or anxiety. There are some of the most prescribed medications in the country, but they can also be addictive if abused.
Because detox can be dangerous, our addiction treatment centers have medical staff available that carefully monitor the tapering process. Benzo addiction treatment also involves teaching patients healthier ways of coping with their medical conditions so they can stop relying on these drugs.
Although prescribed by a doctor to treat a medical condition, some prescription drugs can be addictive if abused and lead to dependence.
Our prescription drug treatment plans help patients regain control over these medications and learn to live their lives without them.
While some people have one substance of choice, others have an affinity to several difference substances and need help quitting them all.
