Treatment At Home – How Are We Different?

 

Whether its Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous or one of the many chemical dependency treatment programs in New York State, group therapy is the mainstay of treatment.

For some, this type of treatment works. But for others – particularly those who have social anxiety – such treatment can be problematic and ineffective. In addition, patients in a program have to adhere to the program’s group schedules and program rules, often making it difficult to maintain a full-time work schedule or attend to family responsibilities.

Our treatment is completely individualized to fit your needs. You detox at home, where you are most comfortable. Family members can be involved in your treatment if you like – which may increase the likelihood of treatment success. We work around your schedule and create a recovery program that works for you.

Interventions

 

About half of our patients find us themselves – via referral from a health professional (such as a family doctor or psychiatrist) or when exploring treatment options on the web. Such patients already know that they are in need of help and are ready to take the steps necessary to save and change their lives.

 

The others require a bit of nudging as they are in denial with regards to their addiction. Often a family member calls us first and inquires about our services. In these cases, treatment begins with an intervention. This is a directed education process that includes a meeting with family members in the presence of, and guided by, an experienced addiction professional. The goal of intervention is to have the addicted individual acknowledge his/her problem and to develop a treatment plan agreed to by the patient that includes both detoxification as well as aftercare to prevent relapse.

At Home Detoxification

 

Our treatment protocol is completely individualized and customized depending on many factors (i.e. drug being abused, amount used and pattern of use) but the goal is to accomplish detoxification in the safest and most comfortable manner possible. Medical care is directed by a physician Board Certified in Addiction Medicine. Patient progress is monitored by the Recovery Coach and any family members who are assisting in treatment.

Suboxone Maintenance

 

About half of patients undergoing detoxification for opioid dependence complete the process and experience no further cravings. The others have cravings that continue after detoxification and are therefore at risk for relapse. For these patients, the best option is ongoing Suboxone maintenance – generally for a period of 1-2 years – after which time Suboxone can be slowly tapered, leaving the patient drug-free and with no cravings.

Post Detoxification Addiction Treatment

 

Addiction is a chronic disease. Detoxification is the first step on the road to recovery. Maintaining sobriety is the next challenge. For some, organizations such as Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous can be helpful as can chemical dependency treatment programs. However, many patients prefer a more individualized approach – one tailored to his/her needs and free of the anxiety many experience in a group treatment setting. Our Recovery Coaches and physicians can work with you one-on-one long after detoxification has been completed to help maintain your sobriety and to address additional problems that emerge (e.g. depression, anxiety, chronic pain)
