Medi-Cal Can help you to Stop Drinking
Tarzana Treatment Centers accepts Medi-Cal for a treatment that will help you to stop drinking
. Our goal is always to set you on a path to long-term sobriety. Our approach is to combine traditional counseling with mental health treatment and Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT)
where they are necessary. Vivitrol
is one form of MAT that we have found to be very effective.
The early days of recovery are the most difficult, partially due to the fact that the body is missing a substance that it became accustomed to being present. The brain is complicated and reacts to the lack of alcohol in the body, even after the detox process, resulting in both physical and psychological symptoms. Alcohol cravings
are one of the strongest symptoms and have the power to send a sober alcoholic back to drinking.
Vivitrol is a monthly injection of Naltrexone that reduces alcohol cravings. This treatment begins at the completion of medical detoxification, where you will have already participated in several individual and group counseling sessions. Combined, these treatments enable you to enter recovery without this major relapse trigger.
Alcohol craving reduction is a tool that frees the mind of alcoholics new to recovery so they can focus on treatment. It is important for recovering individuals to absorb healthy living techniques and to leave old habits behind. By removing the distraction of cravings, this can be accomplished much more quickly and effectively.
Vivitrol treatment is covered by Medi-Cal and Medicare for individuals who qualify, and funding is also available through AB 109 and LA County Drug Court.
Telemedicine services are also available with online medical care, online mental health treatment, and online alcohol and drug treatment.
