If you’re looking for a place to begin, Family Addiction Specialist can help. Services begin with a comprehensive assessment to evaluate your primary concerns, needs, and goals, focusing not only on your presenting concerns but on all underlying issues. Upon an in-depth assessment, your specialist will curate a customized recovery plan for you to meet your needs and provide the most personalized treatments.
In cases where a medical detox is required or medication is needed to address psychological concerns, Family Addiction Specialist partners with a small and intimate team of trusted psychiatrists and doctors who offer Medication-Assisted Treatments. Medication-Assisted Treatments are utilized for select patients for whom it’s appropriate and who will benefit from the program.
Medication-Assisted Treatment uses medication together with counseling. You’ll receive Suboxone® to help you safely and painlessly withdraw from your opioid addiction, or your doctor may prescribe a medication like Vivitrol® to aid in your recovery from alcohol or opioid dependence.
Family Addiction Specialist also offers alcohol and drug testing and monitoring on-site, virtually, or in conjunction with a trusted lab to help during your withdrawal and throughout recovery. Alcohol and drug testing and monitoring provide accountability to individuals who may benefit from such services.
Family Addiction Specialist also offers Recovery Coaching in concert with your own doctor, sponsor, life coach, outpatient substance abuse program, sober living home, or any other recovery method.
