Program Descriptions:

Intervention Services is a process in which families and loved ones learn how to intervene on the progression of the disease of addiction. The benefits of the Intervention Service include the provision of education regarding the physical, psychological and neurological nature of addiction that hold the addict and family hostage. Friends and family are taught to collectively approach their suffering loved one in a compassionate yet firm manner.

Medically Assisted Treatment is the use of medications in concert with counseling and behavioral therapies, which can be effective in the treatment of opioid use disorders and can help some individuals to sustain recovery. The medical component of our program is overseen by a physician who is a certified addictionologist.
