No matter how severe the alcohol or drug problem may seem, we are here to help.

Our Philosophy

The good news is that no matter how severe the alcohol or drug problem may seem, most people with a substance use disorder can benefit from some form of treatment.

In the past, society viewed alcoholism and drug addiction as a moral flaw. Popular “treatments” involved imprisonment, sentencing to asylums, and church-guided prayer. Not surprisingly, these methods were generally ineffective.

Today we understand that addiction is a brain disease characterized by fundamental and long-lasting changes in the brain. Like other chronic diseases, addiction can be managed successfully, and modern treatments are based on scientific research, enabling people to counteract addiction’s powerful disruptive effects on the brain and behavior and to regain control of their lives.

Today’s methods are very effective, with 40-70% of patients getting treatment for drug abuse remaining drug-free and about one-third of those who are treated for alcohol problems having no further symptoms 1 year later. Many others substantially reduce their drinking and report fewer alcohol-related problems.

All patients accepted to participate in our Treatment Program must agree to strictly adhere to the Policies and Protocols of the program, and be genuinely interested in sobriety from addictive substances.

Telemedicine Addiction Program

We have been developing our Telemedicine Addiction Program for a longtime and continue to expand our offerings in support of regulatory changes calling for more access to quality treatment services.

We know that much of America goes without adequate medical, psychiatric, and behavioral care due to a lack of access. For this reason, we established a Telemedicine Addiction Program to treat the ongoing struggle with opiates, alcohol, and other mood-altering substance abuse and dependency issues.

Our program is designed to provide holistic behavioral health and substance abuse treatment for those who have circumstances that prohibit their ability to attend traditional treatment programs.

Behavioral

Behavioral and substance abuse services that are rendered via teleconferencing through an encrypted platform appropriate to the provision of services for clients to gain the knowledge, insight, coping mechanisms, and support systems necessary to achieve and maintain long-term recovery and improve their quality of life by integrating services with those in their community.

Medical

Outpatient Substance abuse medication management is rendered is by a qualified prescribing provider who evaluates the individual’s need for medications to assist in detoxification or sobriety, provides prescriptions, and ongoing medical monitoring. These services can include outpatient detoxification and maintenance medications that are used in conjunction with other necessary self-directed, peer support or professional services. We provide these services in a way that is confidential, private, safe, comfortable, and facilitates the recovery, wellbeing, and self-efficacy of the persons served.

How the Telemedicine Program works?

The primary goal is to improve the quality of life for clients by combining services rendered through our telemedicine platform alongside those available to clients in their community in order to facilitate a holistic and effective treatment plan.

Program Limitations and Specifies

Not all consultations will result in the prescription of medication. When indicated, prescriptions can be sent (electronically, via fax, or by phone) to the patient’s pharmacy of choice. However, some states and federal laws provide stipulations when prescribing Schedule II, III, IV and V medications.

For buprenorphine (Suboxone, Zubsolv, Bunivail, Subutex) treatment through this program, clients are required to have an initial and yearly Face-to-Face visit as well as random drug testing at a facility, agreed upon by the physician and patient, upon request and on a regular basis.

Follow-ups for all scheduled medications must be conducted through video. The physician may require additional visits and labs be done and are purely up to the prescribing physician. This may vary state to state.

The goals, frequency and length of treatment will vary according to the needs of the individual and the response to treatment. A clear treatment focus, measurable outcomes, and a discharge plan (including the identification of realistic discharge criteria) is developed as part of the initial assessment and treatment planning process and is evaluated and revised as necessary as treatment proceeds.

Outpatient services may be of brief duration and may be provided as a step down from a higher intensity of care or as initial treatment. Some individuals, however, may require ongoing, intermittent contact with a licensed professional (e.g. once or twice per month) and other resources in their community beyond telemedicine treatment to maintain the individual’s optimal level of functioning, sobriety, and to prevent the need for more intensive levels of care. Medical and Psychiatric consultation is available based on clinical need.

Insurance Coverage and Costs

We do not accept insurance for our fees. That said, you can use your insurance benefits card to pay for medications and lab tests. Just take your card with you to the pharmacy or the lab.

Counseling Services

Separate from our complete alcohol and drug treatment programs.

We use individual, family, and group counseling services to give knowledge about what is occurring, give the client insight into their particular situation, teach coping skills for future stressors and triggers, and provide social support for long-term recovery.

  • Insight
  • Coping skills
  • Social support
Outside of our alcohol and drug rehab programs we provide general mental health and behavioral health counseling services to anyone seeking qualified and in-network counseling services for various reasons.

Motivational Interviewing

Motivational Interviewing is a collaborative form of therapy between counselors and clients, which elicits motivation for change. It focuses on the individual’s perception of their issues and assesses desired change in order to create appropriate conditions for change in the therapeutic process. Motivational Interviewing (MI) explores the individual’s ideal-self and dissonance that may occur when behaviors and thoughts do not match their personal goals and beliefs. MI is a person-centered approach in which therapeutic relationships and empathy are at its core and progress is recognized and addressed throughout. Motivational Interviewing uses past anecdotes and experiences to help formulate present and future goals.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy or CBT is a brief therapy that explores the relationship between cognitions, or thoughts, and behaviors in the present and future. This technique is used in our general counseling services, addiction treatment, and with co-occurring disorders to challenge automatic and irrational thoughts and beliefs that can sometimes lead to self-destructive or negative behavior. CBT encourages clients to identify intrusive thought patterns, challenge those thoughts by redirecting them to positive and rational thoughts, thus giving clients a chance to adjust their behaviors. CBT uses journaling, charts and other homework techniques to help clients achieve their goals and increase their feelings of self-control.

Solution Focused Therapy

Solution Focused Therapy is a present and future oriented technique that encourages a client to express their future desires and vision for their life, followed by a thorough exploration of steps to achieve those goals. This collaborative therapy technique teaches clients to focus on their future and moving forward while using their experiences as a resource to affirm past successes or to examine where change may be necessary to attain a more desired goal for the future. SFT helps clients learn to identify problems, process different solutions and use those solutions to create a positive outcome.

Trauma and EMDR

Other modalities include the use of EMDR to address trauma and emotional regulations in clients with PTSD and other emotional disorders.
