Long-term recovery from opioid use disorder requires care, attention, and honesty. By communicating in a safe space with a counselor one-on-one or with other individuals struggling with addiction in group therapy, you can delve into issues, discover new ways of coping with difficulties, and learn healthy, constructive ways to put your use of opioids and other drugs behind you.
You will be assigned a primary counselor based on your preferences for treatment, and you will then work with your primary counselor and our interdisciplinary treatment team to develop a unique, individualized treatment plan that will help you achieve your recovery goals. Each patient is required to have at least monthly individual counseling, but many patients - especially early in treatment - benefit from weekly or more frequent individual counseling in conjunction with group therapy. The medications we provide will help stabilize the biological components of addiction, but it is through counseling and other psychosocial support services that a foundation for lasting recovery is built.
