Addiction, Recovery, and Dual Diagnosis

Back to library

Substance abuse and addiction can destroy a person's physical and mental health as well as their ability to maintain a job, housing, and relationships with family and friends. Even when the addicted individual finally decides to get sober they have trouble dealing with the acute withdrawal symptoms as well as chronic withdrawal symptoms.

A chronic withdrawal phase can last for many months, and this phase entails symptoms of anxiety, depression, mood swings, irritability, sleep difficulties, paranoia, hyperarousal, restlessness and poor concentration. These symptoms can be highly uncomfortable and if left untreated will ultimately lead to relapse.

Therefore, we offer substance abuse treatment that includes medications to reduce acute withdrawal symptoms as well as cravings. We also treat the uncomfortable symptoms that can follow once the acute withdrawal phase is over. In addition, we treat anxiety, sleep problems, depression or mood swings, poor concentration.

We offer medication assisted treatments (MAT) with suboxone, naltrexone, acamprosate, antabuse, chantix, zyban and nicotine replacement therapies. We can also arrange for you to receive vivitrol shots and sublocade.

In addition to the above, we provide counseling for underlying conditions that trigger substance abuse, and referrals to local support groups.
