Learn more about our treatment programs for substance abuse below. 

Alcohol Abuse

  • During your initial visit, we will perform a thorough evaluation to determine whether you need inpatient care. This visit can take up to 4 hours.
  • On-site medications are given to help you through withdrawal symptoms, and your addiction management physician will prescribe medications for home use as you continue treatment.
  • Vivitrol injections to help reduce your dependence on alcohol are available at follow-up appointments.

Narcotics, Methamphetamines, and Heroin Addiction

  • During your initial visit, we will perform a thorough evaluation to determine whether you need inpatient care. This visit can take up to 4 hours.
  • Our doctors may follow the ultra-rapid opioid detoxification (UROD) procedure, in which a high-dose naloxone injection is given, followed by a slow infusion of lower doses. This is done under general anesthesia or sedation and takes about 4 hours to complete.
  • Suboxone® therapy may be offered to suppress withdrawal symptoms and reduce cravings. Suboxone is a film that is inserted under the tongue (sublingual) to reduce symptoms of opioid withdrawal.
  • Naltrexone implants, which are inserted into the lower abdomen, are used to block the effects of opiates. The implants release naltrexone into the body and are effective for up to six months at a time.
  • Vivitrol injections may be offered at follow-up appointments to prevent relapse.

Cocaine Addiction

  • For cigarette smokers, nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) may be used to gradually reduce the amount of nicotine in your system after quitting. Similarly, a THC patch may be used for marijuana addiction. Chantix®, Zyban®, and other medications may be prescribed to kick tobacco addiction and reduce cravings, as well as manage the anxiety associated with quitting smoking.
  • Cognitive behavior therapy may be prescribed to eliminate patterns that trigger cravings, as well as help avoid weight gain after smoking cessation.
