MEDICATION ASSISTED TREATMENT
Medication assisted treatment has proven to be very effective in helping individuals using opioids and alcohol maintain abstinence and achieve long-term recovery. After being abstinent for 7-10 days, participants may receive the once monthly Vivitrol injection along with counseling support. It has been effective in decreasing cravings and blocking the euphoric effects.
An effective way of remaining on the road to recovery is to be guided and to receive the added assistance of a recovery coach, and/or a Peer. These trained, certified individuals provide valuable guidance and assistance, helping clients get housing, employment, and to locate many other needed resources.
Residential treatment is aimed at eliminating substance abuse behaviors and gaining the abilities to live a clean and sober life. Insight into the addiction and relapse process and developing a personalized plan to identify triggers, attitudes and engage in a lifestyle change is essential.
