ART facilities provide individual, group, and family therapy along with educational services, as well as access to community treatments such as Alcoholics Anonymous® or Narcotics Anonymous®.
If you’re physically addicted to a substance or substances, or have been using substances in large amounts, you may require medically supervised withdrawal to avoid complications from the substance you have used.
Inpatient detox facilities provide this service, which typically takes 5-7 days, depending on the amount, type, and duration of your substance misuse.
Please note: Inpatient detoxification isn’t a comprehensive treatment—however, it’s often the first step on the path to recovery.
Proper use of certain medications can help individuals combat the physical opioid addiction and can offer relief, as well as support in other areas. Established evidence indicates that MAT is a highly effective approach to preventing overdoses and death for people living with opioid addiction. MAT consists of the following commonly used medications:
Is a combination of buprenorphine and naloxone. Buprenorphine is an opioid medication. Naloxone is a narcotic drug that reverses the effects of other narcotic medicines. Together they reduce the risk of relapse and overdose
Is an injectable version of naltrexone that helps block the effects of narcotics. This can be given only when the person has detoxed off opiates. This can be effective for weeks to reduce cravings and block the impact of opiates.
Is a synthetic opioid medication that reduces withdrawal symptoms in people addicted to heroin or other narcotics without causing the "high" associated with drug use. We have contracted with a network of opiate treatment providers (OTP) who are federally licensed to dispense methadone.
