Medication-Assisted Treatment for Recovery

Medication in combination with counseling may assist with eliminating the symptoms of substance withdrawal, helping to reduce the craving for the substance again in addition to helping reduce symptoms of other behavioral addictions.

Behavioral addictions can come from any thing in life that stimulates a person and can turn from a habit into something that interferes with  a client’s quality of life when the behaviors become so frequent or happen during inappropriate times. Some behavioral addictions include compulsive gambling, shopping, eating, and internet use.

  Medication can help to eliminate or alleviate these symptoms of substance or behavioral addiction so the client can be enabled to make the behavioral and life changes needed to support their recovery efforts.

Outpatient Alcohol Detox Process

Outpatient Alcohol Detox is NOT for those who have a rough or disruptive home life. A commitment must be made to remove or restrict access to alcohol at home. You must be able to keep and travel to our office; this may require support of a friend or a family member if impaired by alcohol or medications required. Outpatient alcohol detox may not be safe for someone who has been a heavy drinker for a long time, has had or is at high risk for severe withdrawal to include delirium tremens which may cause death if not handled in an inpatient facility. Be honest with your Collegial Behavioral Health team about your drinking habits so they can evaluate your risk.
