Regional Health Partners offers a treatment program for assisted recovery from narcotic addiction as well as nicotine, sedative and alcohol dependence in the privacy and convenience of an office setting. This setting offers our patients the ability to stay with their families, continue working and keep up with their daily life which in turn allows us to work together on their stresses and triggers as they arise. We help them develop coping skills and specific techniques to overcome their urges as they confront them. Our medical doctors take a multi-faceted approach to the treatment of addiction:
- Proven pharmacological treatment. Medication can be used for the relief of physical withdrawal symptoms and reduction of cravings from opioids and alcohol.
- Psychosocial treatment to help patients develop techniques to achieve and sustain their sobriety.
- Inclusion of family members as part of the team involved in the patient’s recovery process. We always encourage the family (parents / spouse) to participate in the treatment and accompany the patient for counseling. We educate and enlist the family, making them part of the team who will help the patient achieve successful sober living.
- Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is provided. CBT is like a course on how to better cope with our emotions born from our automatic thoughts. The emphasis is on learning and practicing new skills.
Our doctors strongly believe that addiction is primarily a health condition and not a character flaw. We are committed to helping our patients overcome their substance abuse and lead productive and fulfilling lives.
