Recovery and Chronic Pain

It's the beginning of your journey......

Medication-Assisted Treatment and Maintenance

Our Outpatient Treatment Program for Addiction is the ideal blend of focused, one-on-one attention, with the freedom to stay at home, in a hotel, or resort of your choice.

If you cannot go away for 30 days or more to fix your substance abuse problem, if you do not want to have your privacy violated with either a long absence or group participation, this may be the program for you.  This is the effective solution for individuals and couples with time restrictions due to busy careers and/or family obligations, or for people who need complete privacy and confidentiality in their treatment.

Our Outpatient Program uses evidence-based components – Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Enhancement, Assertiveness Training, Diet and Exercise recommendations, Mindfulness, and a number of other factors – combined into a tailored mosaic of tools that are specifically designed for you.

Outpatient Treatment for Addiction

If you have just completed an inpatient detox treatment program and have moved on to Partial Hospital Program or Aftercare Program, "Congratulations!"  You are well on your way to recovery!  However, if you also struggle with chronic pain, you maybe wondering what to do when your pain flares up.  You worry if another episode of pain may trigger the use of addictive substances and cause you to relapse.    

You need not worry.  We are here to show you how you can stay in recovery and still be able to manage your pain.  We will take you step-by-step through understanding the methods of pain management that can lead you to long life of recovery and serenity.  We will support your recovery by implementing safe, non mind-altering medications, and evidence based treatment modalities to aide in the management of your chronic pain.  We will be your counselors, your advisors, your care coordinators, and most importantly, your friends, in both your recovery from your addiction and your chronic pain.

Medication-assisted treatment is treatment for addiction that includes the use of medication along with counseling and other support.  Treatment that includes medication may be a choice for you when it comes to detoxification.  The most common medications used in the treatment of opioid addiction are methadone and buprenorphine.  Sometimes another medication, called naltrexone, is used for both opioid and alcohol addiction.  We will discuss these options with you if you are a candidate for medication-assisted treatment.

Continued Care

Recovery is a process and not an event. With the initial detox from your substance of abuse, you've taken the first step of many steps to come.  After periods of substance use, you may be at risk for other health issues.  It is vital to have regular check-ups to ensure your physical well-being.  We will help you monitor your progress, make appropriate referrals when necessary, and keep you on your track to a long life of recovery.
