Addiction & Recovery

Addiction is a dangerous, yet treatable disease. Unlike other types of illnesses, addiction requires the commitment and cooperation of the abuser in order to begin a journey to recovery. Individuals suffering from addiction are encouraged to seek treatment from an experienced counselor who can help identify the cause of self-abusive behaviors and facilitate a path to wellness and healing. With professional counseling, the seemingly daunting decision to stop an addiction can be broken into small, less-frightening steps that make recovery seem much more conceivable.

Did you know…

Substance use disorders are complex, life-long illnesses that affect people from all walks of life. Gaining and maintaining sobriety is a great accomplishment that may entail a difficult journey and often involves a multi-factored treatment approach.

Insyte Psychiatric offers medication-assisted treatment (MAT) options to assist patients on their journey through sobriety.

MAT is the use of medications, in combination with counseling and behavioral therapies to provide a “whole-patient” approach to substance use disorders. 

Insyte also provides therapy by specialized substance abuse counselors. The ultimate goal of MAT services is to provide patients with optimal therapy approaches that allow patients to better manage their mental health without the need of medications. Through appropriate therapeutic interventions, patients will be able to reduce and eventually discontinue medications that are utilized in assisting with maintaining sobriety. 

Contact Insyte Psychiatric to schedule your evaluation and develop an individualized treatment plan that works for you. 

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to seek treatment for addiction?

You may need to seek treatment for an addiction if you have a habit that you believe you should cut back on or stop altogether. Many people suffering with addictions find themselves either feeling guilty about their habits or otherwise irritated when asked about those habits.

What should I expect during addiction recovery?

Addiction recovery is a long and tedious process. Treatment may involve several components, including one-on-one counseling and group therapy. The path to recovery is filled with ups and downs, and many people find comfort and encouragement in the relationships and accountability formed with other people who have faced similar struggles. Addiction treatment makes it possible to face both the cause of addictive behaviors as well as the consequences. Ultimately, overcoming addiction means gaining self-respect and working toward realistic goals and expectations.

What happens after I have completed treatment for addiction?

Many former addicts maintain a state of ongoing recovery. Many addictions are fed by both biological and environmental components. Changing your environment can significantly reduce your chances of relapsing into addiction, but a biological predisposition to addiction cannot be cured. You may wish to continue attending a support group to reduce your chances of relapse and to help prevent a new addiction from forming in the place of an old one.
