Addiction Recovery Treatment Options
Millions of people in the United States are struggling with some form of addiction, yet few people receive the treatment that they need. At BrightView, we want to change that.
Our outpatient treatment is supportive and approachable for anyone who is seeking treatment for drug addiction or alcohol abuse. These are diseases, not just social problems. People that are struggling with diseases related to drug or alcohol addiction need treatment programs that are focused on comprehensive addiction treatment so that they can experience lasting success without relapse. We also want our treatment programs to be accessible to all who need them, so we accept Medicaid, Medicare, and most forms of private insurance to make sure that anyone battling the disease of addiction can receive our top-quality care.
This is not your typical “rehab” center. In fact, we don’t even use the term “rehab” around here. Our intensive outpatient programs are designed so that people can receive treatment while still maintaining their daily responsibilities and activities.
Counseling for Addiction
Treatment for drug or alcohol addiction should not have a one-size-fits-all approach. In order to be successful, each individual needs to be treated just as that – an individual. We build individualized programs that meet the needs of our patients clinically, focusing on both their physical needs as well as their mental health.
Substance abuse treatment at BrightView typically involves a combination of medication-assisted treatment (MAT) and both individual and group therapy. There is plenty of evidence to support the higher long-term success rates of people who recover from their disease using this approach as opposed to just counseling or a detox program.
Medication-assisted treatments or MAT as they are commonly referred to have been proven to show excellent results when paired with other therapy during the recovery process. Often misunderstood, MAT does not mean trading one addiction for another. It is true, patients will become addicted to their medication while they ease their withdrawal symptoms, but the drugs used in these types of treatment plans do not have the same narcotic effects that street drugs, alcohol or prescription opioids do.
A medication-assisted treatment program must be supervised by a physician with a plan for how the patients will eventually work their way off of their assigned medication. All MAT programs must also use FDA approved treatment drugs and be supported by behavioral and group therapies that focus on the mental health aspects of beating drug abuse and addiction.
BrightView only prescribes FDA approved drugs at our health care facilities. Drugs commonly prescribed at our treatment programs include buprenorphine, buprenorphine/naloxone (Suboxone), and naltrexone (Vivitrol), but we do not prescribe methadone at this time. Depending on why a patient is visiting BrightView, their care provider with prescribing the right medication for the disease they are fighting. Some drugs are more effective for alcohol treatment, whereas others are effective in treating drug use and diseases like opiate addiction.
