New Treatment Techniques
We offer a medically advanced approach to treat addiction. For those who have had repeated failures in recovery, there are effective anti-craving medications that assist with positive treatment outcomes.
The ARCA program offers drug rehabilitation for addictions to opioids, stimulants, prescription medication, and alcohol abuse. The treatment process starts with medical consultation, detoxification, and anti-craving medication. The program includes a 5-day detox together with individual and group therapy which is provided by trained psychologists, social workers, and counselors.
The key feature of the physician-directed program include:
- Immediate medical detox
- No disruption of work or family
- Anti-craving medications
- Psychiatric and psychological services
Immediate medical detox
Detox is the process of removing drugs from the body. This helps alleviate severe withdrawal symptoms safely and comfortably. Detox is not the same for everyone and depends on the type of drug and duration of addiction.
No disruption of work or family
Our patients have the option of detox, which is followed by an outpatient program. This is suitable for those who have work and family responsibilities.
Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) helps a patient get into a recovery process with ease and face life on life’s terms with a clear mind. Advances in the understanding of the neurobiology of addictive disorders have led to the development of an entirely new class of medications that target specific regions of the brain and that have no addictive properties.
Psychiatric and Psychological Services
• Cognitive Behavioral Therapy – Our team of professional counselors and social workers use cognitive behavioral therapy to address and change negative thought patterns that lead to emotional stresses, depression, and anxiety.
• Group Therapy – is just as effective as one-on-one counseling. This type of therapy allows patients to learn from others who have been down the same road of addiction to recovery.
If left untreated, alcohol or substance abuse can ruin an individual’s personal and professional life. If a problem is suspected, help should be sought before it is too late. Modern treatment programs offer improved outcomes and require less time.
The introduction of newer medications behavioral therapies and better tests to detect drug and alcohol use has dramatically changed the way addictive disorders, especially alcohol and heroin (sugars) abuse, can be treated.
Today ARCA can offer a range of treatment programs that are highly effective, less costly, and less time consuming, and that will allow individuals to return to work rapidly without compromising the integrity of their care.
This will hopefully result in changing perceptions that treatment is punitive and career-ending, thus more will come forward and seek treatment before it becomes too late to salvage those things they hold most precious, usually a family and a career.
