and other forms of addiction.
Recovering from an opioid dependence is hard to do alone. Without the proper treatment and care, many people that have an addiction will slip back into their old addiction.
Outpatient Drug and Alcohol Treatment
Outpatient treatment can vary; most will operate in a very similar way. Patients are required to partake in an initial assessment by an addiction specialist doctor. Patients are required to be abstinent from drug and alcohol. They agree to attend seminars, therapy sessions, and activities. Can be one-on-one or in a group environment. Our physicians and clinical staff reserve adequate time per patient to spearhead a treatment plan for drugs and alcohol that will isolate the issue and provide proper treatment. Patient care is crucial for success and we provide the best possible care for our patients who are suffering with drugs and alcohol.
Benefits of outpatient care
- Does not disrupt a work or school schedule
- Does not become stigmatized for having inpatient treatment
- With support from friends and family, coming home is an advantage
- Does not have to transition back to home routines
- Less expensive than inpatient treatment
Disadvantages of outpatient care
- Improper supervision can cause relapse due to temptations
- Distractions from family and work can cause frustration and relapse
- May not be able to contact a professional after office hours or on weekends
- Not as much help for withdrawal symptoms as an inpatient facility

Detox from Opioids (Suboxone license)
Opioid addiction is common in the United States due to the large numbers of persons who use and abuse these drugs for the treatment of chronic pain issues. Though drugs such as benzodiazepines, methadone, and other drugs are used, withdrawal can be severe and relapses are common. Long term abuse of opioids causes other medical issues. They can affect the body, emotional, and mental status of a patient to render them unable to cope with daily activities.
Methadone, Subutex, Suboxone and Zubsolv are often combined with other antidepressants and antiadrenergic agent to aid in relief from opioid withdrawal.
Treating opioids stems from finding and managing the initial reason for the abuse. For example, if chronic pain was the problem, the patient should seek other modes of treatment. These can include electrical shock systems, tens units, non-opioid medications, exercise, diet and physical therapy.
Drug and Alcohol Addiction Specialist
We have treated many patients using standard and alternative therapies to acheive the desired success. Our addiction specialist will utilize all appropriate treatment options and treat all underlying conditions in order to obtain optimal results.
Alternatives to the medications listed above and other forms of withdrawal symptom management is available such as:
Neurotransmitter restoration therapy is one avenue to treat withdrawal symptoms with the use of IV NAD & amino acids. NAD infusion therapy is a holistic approach to the treatment of dependency on alcohol, chemicals, medications, and other substances. It helps clear the mind and relieve withdrawal so the patient can explore other options with a greater chance of success long term.
Rather than relying specifically on drugs to treat addictions, using supplements can aid the transition in a more natural manner. Supplements such as B-Complex for stress relief, Calcium and Magnesium to help relieve anxiety in the central nervous system and help with muscle aches. Kava helps to improve mood. Passion flower can help with mental symptoms. Melatonin can help provide more restful sleep. A balanced diet can help restore the body’s natural functions after the medication or alcohol abuse.
