Substance Abuse Disorders Treatment

Substance abuse disorders don't just affect individuals, but usually entire families, and sometimes neighborhoods and communities. No one is immune. Many different substances can be abused including alcohol, pain medications, nicotine, sleep aids, cocaine, marijuana, and many over the counter medications such as cold and cough medications. The reason someone abuses drugs or alcohol vary from one person to another.

Motivation for change is key in treating substance abuse, as is honesty and transparency. True sobriety is a way of life, requiring commitment and dedication. It involves more than just keeping drugs or alcohol out of your body and must be embraced by a person's whole being - physical, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual - to be successful. If an individual is ready, there is help. The journey should not be ventured alone.

An individual patient's safety always comes first. Appropriate referrals for medical detoxification, inpatient or partial hospitalization, or intensive outpatient programs will be made if necessary at the sole discretion of an IBH practitioner. Substance abuse can be treated in an outpatient setting without using potentially addictive medications, once the individual is safe from any medical complications due to withdrawal symptoms.

Counseling can offer guidance in developing and maintaining a plan for sobriety. Many non-addictive medications exist that can help manage symptoms of cravings, insomnia, anxiety, depression, mood swings; and proper utilization and monitoring can help reduce the risk of relapse. There are many community resources and organizations available that promote sobriety and healing for individuals and families suffering from addictive disorders.
