Addiction Help

If you’re ready to start treatment, we’re here to help. The process can be overwhelming, and we know you’ll have questions. But, no matter what, you can count on us to be there with you through this process.

Does Treatment Work?

Addiction can be devastating and the thought of recovering can seem out of reach. But no matter how powerless you feel, change is possible with the right treatment and support. Just check out some of these success stories!

It’s important to accept that treatment will take time. Most individuals need at least 3 months of treatment to significantly reduce or stop drug use.

What Can I Expect?

Recognizing you need treatment takes courage and strength. Don’t try to do it alone. Treatment is more than treating addiction alone. It includes addressing your day-to-day challenges such as medical needs, mental and social issues, family history and more.

Treatment is different for everyone. It’s not a one-size-fits all solution. A health care professional can help you determine which combination of support services will work best for you.

Here are the Things you can Expect from Most Treatment Programs

Withdrawal Management

Detoxification, or detox, is the phase in which your body physically withdraws from drugs. It’s good to go through this process at an inpatient treatment facility or through an outpatient program so you can be monitored by a health care professional.

Counseling and Behavioral Therapy

Therapy is a critical part to recovery. Recovery will be hard physically, mentally and emotionally, so having a professional support you through this journey is so important. They will give you tools and techniques to help you stick to your treatment and they will address additional day-to-day challenges, such as mental and social challenges, family history and more.


Your doctor may prescribe you medications that help with withdrawal symptoms. Some common examples include buprenorphine/naloxone, Vivitrol or methadone. Taking medication AND therapy can be a highly effective way to treat addiction.

Non-opioid Treatments for Chronic Pain

Opioids can be safe and effective, but they also come with risks. Talk with your provider about these risks and <ways to manage your pain> that do not involve prescription opioids.

Support Groups

Addiction can make you feel like you are alone. But many people battle addiction. Support groups allow you to connect with people who are on the same recovery journey. And more often than not, these people become your trusted friends for the long-haul.
