MAT (Medication Assisted Treatment)
Medication assisted treatment (MAT) is the use of medications in combination with counseling and behavioral therapies for the treatment of substance use disorders. If a person is addicted, medication allows him or her to regain a normal state of mind, free of drug-induced highs and lows. It frees the person from thinking all the time about the drug. It can reduce problems of withdrawal and craving. These changes can give the person the chance to focus on the lifestyle changes that lead back to healthy living. Taking medication for opioid addiction is like taking medication to control heart disease or diabetes. It is NOT the same as substituting one addictive drug for another. Used properly, the medication does NOT create a new addiction. It helps people manage their addiction so that the benefits of recovery can be maintained
Individual Screening & Assessment
Assessment service involves the evaluation of an individual to determine the nature and extent of his/her abuse, misuse and/or addiction to alcohol and/or other drugs. The therapist will consider a variety of factors including the client's mental health and social well-being. Clients will attend an BioPsychoSocial assessment session to determine an individualized treatment plan specific to their needs.
Individual counseling is the utilization of special skills to assist an individual in achieving treatment objectives. This is done through exploration of alcohol or other drug problems and/or addiction and their ramifications, including an examination of thoughts and feelings, consideration of alternative solutions and decision- making.
(IOP) Intensive Outpatient Group Therapy
IOP is designed to let individuals continue living at home while attending treatment in an Outpatient Facility. This Group Therapy focuses on assisting individuals develop new ways of thinking and help them refrain from engaging in negative activities. Clients learn tools to begin rebuilding their personal lives, as well as skills to build a foundation for long-term recovery. Other areas of focus include: Identifying triggers and learning healthy ways to deal with them, improving decision making abilities, practicing effective communication, developing healthy relationships, coping with cravings, and accepting feedback from group members. IOP is for individuals who need support and structure in their recovery process. Guidance is provided through Masters level Counselors, as well as staff licensed in the State of Ohio, in a supportive environment. IOP is not a program for those that require medically supervised detox. Length of stay in any program is contingent upon the referral source’s requirements as well as a client’s progress in treatment; it is highly individualized based on each client’s specific needs.
Intensive Outpatient clients must attend group therapy three days per week (three hour sessions each).
