The warm and welcoming treatment facility of Internet Behavioral Care can start providing help to individuals seeking to overcome opiate addiction in three easy steps. One, potential patients call the office, two, they schedule an intake appointment, and three, new patients meet with the psychiatrist or therapist assigned to them and treatment begins.
Our addiction specialists work closely with patients to determine their unique circumstances, preferences, strengths and limitations. Recovery plans are customized to suit patient need, and are adjusted throughout the patient’s recovery journey. Internet Behavioral Care understands that while certain forms of treatment have been proven almost universally effective for opiate addiction treatment, every individual patient is different. We therefore adapt each therapeutic intervention to each patient.
At Internet Behavioral Care, we provide Medication-Assisted Treatment, which is widely accepted as the most effective form of opiate addiction treatment available today. Medication-Assisted Treatment addresses substance abuse from all angles, by treating the physical, mental, behavioral, emotional and social aspects of addiction within a comprehensive recovery plan.
Patients are stabilized with addiction treatment medication such as methadone, which will keep the patient from suffering withdrawal symptoms as they give up their drug of choice. The medication will also diminish drug cravings which make patients vulnerable to relapse. Relapsing after withdrawal from heroin or other opiate drugs can be deadly for patients not receiving treatment with methadone or other such medications. Recovering addicts do not realize how low their tolerance has become, and therefore take their familiar dosage, which has now become fatal to them.
Once stabilized by medications, patients with Internet Behavioral Care are able to reclaim their lives and their health as they focus on the self-discovery and intensive changes involved in treating the psychological, emotional and behavioral aspects of their opiate addiction through individual and group counseling. Counselors guide patients as they discover and address mental health issues and learn new, more positive ways of thinking and patterns of behavior that will allow them to remain strong in trigger situations and times of stress. This process is required for long-term recovery success.
The educated and experienced counselors at Internet Behavioral Care commence treatment with a thorough psychological and psychiatric evaluation to determine the appropriate treatment plan. Then they provide medication management, along with a range of therapeutic interventions, including individual, family, group and couples therapy, as well as creative interventions like art therapy.
Individual therapy provides a safe space for patients to interact with their therapists in a one on one session where they focus on discovering and addressing any mental health concerns they may have in addition to their addiction issues. They will also examine their strengths and limitations, and use this self-knowledge to develop more effective coping techniques that will support remaining drug free, even after being discharged from a treatment program.
Group therapy accomplishes many of the same psychotherapeutic goals as Individual therapy, but within a communal setting where group members often provide as much guidance and assistance as the therapist in charge. Studies have shown that patients participating in group therapy and/or addiction support groups get just as much benefit from offering support to their fellow group members as they do from receiving that support from others. Sharing openly about addiction issues in a group setting also helps free patients from the burden of shame that so many addicts contend with in recovery.
At Internet Behavioral Care, our compassionate clinicians offer expert psychiatric evaluations, medication management and confidential treatment within a Medication-Assisted Treatment program for patients struggling with an addiction to opioids like painkillers and heroin.
We understand that opiate addiction is not just about substance abuse, but can stem from a variety of emotional, behavioral and mental health problems that need to be discovered and addressed. We also understand that patients will not be able to benefit from counseling designed to deal with these problems until they are first stabilized by an addiction treatment medication like methadone. Methadone blocks drug cravings and opiate withdrawal symptoms, allowing patients to effectively focus on their addiction recovery plan.
The educated and experienced therapists at Internet Behavioral Care are qualified to treat more than just opiate addiction. They are available to help patients with stress and anger management, anxiety, issues with children and family, depression, grief and loss, eating disorders, personality disorders, and more. We offer one hundred percent patient-focused care that supports long-term recovery success.
Internet Behavioral Care believes in Medication-Assisted Treatment as an effective way for opiate-addicted individuals to overcome addictive behaviors and reclaim their lives and their health. Patients stabilized by addiction medications such as methadone are given the strength, energy and focus they need to tackle the process of self-discovery and life changes necessary to achieve long-term recovery success. Internet Behavioral Care understands that addiction is a whole-life problem that requires a whole life treatment approach to overcome.
