Vivitrol - We Have You Covered

by James Heller 22. June 2012 07:37
When life and financial situations take a turn for the worst, most people do what they can to support themselves until they can get back on their feet.  Others don’t have much of a personal safety net and enroll in public assistance programs.  Some turn to alcohol or drugs as an escape and become dependent.  In these cases, addiction can make for a long road back to a normal life.  

Two factors that keep alcoholics and heroin addicts from achieving long-term recovery are money and cravings.  They think they can’t afford treatment, so they don’t bother calling a facility.  If they do get into treatment and complete medical detoxification, they may relapse shortly thereafter because the cravings are so powerful.  Many of these individuals give up if a loved one doesn’t inform them of the options that are available.

Tarzana Treatment Centers has solutions for both barriers to recovery.  It is likely that you qualify for public assistance if you are out of work and can’t afford treatment.  We can get you started with detox right away under low-cost and no-cost public contracts.  Alcohol and drug treatment is covered by Cal-WORKs and Medicare, along with several other programs.  The goal of these programs is to help you get clean and sober so you can get back on your feet.

Since cravings may cause relapse, we also encourage the use of Vivitrol for qualified patients.  Vivitrol blocks receptors in the brain to reduce alcohol and opiate cravings, and works for 30 days with one injection.  We have low-cost and no-cost treatment contracts for Vivitrol, and can get you started when you are ready to discharge from detox.

If you are using alcohol or drugs, and are suffering some tough financial times, the only guarantee is that things will get worse.  Today is the day to get started, and Tarzana Treatment Centers has you covered.

Tarzana Treatment Centers in Los Angeles provides a full array of health care services including adult and youth alcohol and drug treatment.  We specialize in treatment for mental health and substance use disorders, and have two primary medical care clinics in the San Fernando Valley and Antelope Valley.  If you or a loved one needs help with alcohol dependencedrug addiction, or co-occurring mental health disorders, please call us now at 888-777-8565 or contact us here.

Telemedicine services are also available with online medical care, online mental health treatment, and online alcohol and drug treatment.

Methadone Maintenance Brings Positive Outcomes

by James Heller 15. June 2012 13:09
Opiates are highly addictive and either controlled or illegal.  This combination of factors most often leads to increasing doses, which can cause the loss of employment, financial issues, and engagement in criminal activity.  Opiates, like heroin, are often administered intravenously, which also increases the risk of infection with HIV, hepatitis, and other blood-borne pathogens.   So there is a great risk of harm for those who find abstinence-only treatment difficult to maintain. 

Because opiate addiction impacts the addicted individual and society in the way described above, the treatment approach must include more than the traditional detox-to-abstinence model.  Abstinence should always be the ultimate goal.  The road to abstinence, though, may require a period of Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) using Methadone Maintenance.  This could be a lifesaving step in the recovery process for many opiate addicts.

Methadone Maintenance has been proven effective as a “harm reduction” treatment method.  The linked paper below shows the true and positive effects of Methadone Maintenance.  The fact is that this form of treatment reduces health risks, crime, unemployment, and improves treatment outcomes for individuals who previously believed they had no hope of breaking their addiction cycle.


Tarzana Treatment Centers offers Methadone Maintenance to qualified individuals.  During this MAT treatment, our clients also undergo addiction counseling to help them on the road to abstinence.  We added this Narcotic Replacement Therapy (NRT) to our services because we want all addicts to have a chance to survive and recover.  Many opiate addicts are motivated for recovery, but they can’t get past the opiate cravings that drag them back to using again.  We keep them in treatment.

Tarzana Treatment Centers in Los Angeles provides a full array of health care services including adult and youth alcohol and drug treatment.  We specialize in treatment for mental health and substance use disorders, and have two primary medical care clinics in the San Fernando Valley and Antelope Valley.  If you or a loved one needs help with alcohol dependencedrug addiction, or co-occurring mental health disorders, please call us now at 888-777-8565 or contact us here.

Medicare Covers Alcohol and Drug Treatment

by James Heller 11. June 2012 15:01
Medicare covers much more than basic medical care, which is probably not a big surprise to anyone.  What may be news is that mental health treatment and alcohol and drug treatment are covered.  This is important to know because an increasing number of seniors are in need of these services, and Tarzana Treatment Centers provides all of them.

Senior alcohol and drug abuse can begin with anxiety, depression, physical pain, and even social factors like loneliness or boredom.  One may begin drinking earlier in the day, which can progress until cocktail hour is at 9am.  Another individual may be prescribed painkillers or anxiety medication, like Vicodin or Xanax, and become addicted because negative feelings don’t feel so bad with them.  These are just two examples of how senior substance abuse can start.  

Addiction survivors are entering their senior years, and many of them are going back to alcohol and other drugs.  The substance use may not be very different from past senior generations, but the stigma of being drunk or high is not as prevalent with the Baby Boomers.  On one hand, this means that recreational drugs, like cocaine and crystal meth, are sometimes abused.  And on the other hand, family members might feel at ease discussing the need for alcohol or drug detox with this group.

Tarzana Treatment Centers provides addiction and mental health treatment under Medicare coverage. We know what other problems to look for when addiction is presented as a primary problem with seniors.  And we can usually treat all of them under one roof.  We want to help make the golden years special and not filled with problems.

Tarzana Treatment Centers in Los Angeles provides a full array of health care services including adult and youth alcohol and drug treatment.  We specialize in treatment for mental health and substance use disorders, and have two primary medical care clinics in the San Fernando Valley and Antelope Valley.  If you or a loved one needs help with alcohol dependencedrug addiction, or co-occurring mental health disorders, please call us now at 888-777-8565 or contact us here.

CalWORKs Covers Alcohol and Drug Detox

by James Heller 8. June 2012 08:45
When family life is disrupted by alcohol and drug use, the entire household suffers.  Substance abuse leads to financial, legal, and relationship problems.  If these problems become unmanageable for families in California, CalWORKs is available to help them get back on their feet.  This program includes benefits to help people stop abusing alcohol and drugs, including payment for medical detoxification.

Tarzana Treatment Centers provides these services for CalWORKs.  The admission process is simple if you already receive CalWORKs benefits, and we can help you enroll if you don’t.  During the detox program, our addiction counselors and other staff will help you to plan your aftercare options.  You will discover what keeps you in the cycle of substance use, and learn how to repair your family.

Our goal is to help you find that clean and sober life you dream of.  The first step is to call us and start the admission process.  There is no reason to delay your recovery.

One of the greatest rewards is to see families heal, knowing that the children have a better life ahead of them.

Vivitrol FDA Approved for Opiate Relapse Prevention

by James Heller 20. October 2010 13:05
Tarzana Treatment Centers in Los Angeles is thrilled at the news that the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) has approved Vivitrol for use in opioid addiction treatment.  The evidence was clear to us that Vivitrol reduced opiate cravings, but the FDA went one step further in approving it for the “prevention of relapse to opioid dependence.”  This means that we can finally say what we’ve also known for a long time; Vivitrol prevents relapse.

Tarzana Treatment Centers offers Vivitrol for alcohol treatment and opiate treatment as part of our Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) program.  It is a Naltrexone injection taken monthly that reduces alcohol cravings and opiate cravings.  This allows individuals in recovery to focus on addiction treatment, and offers a better chance at long-term recovery.  For more information about the FDA approval and Vivitrol, click the link below for the press release by Vivitrol manufacturer, Alkermes.

Telemedicine Uses – Senior Mental Health and Substance Use

by James Heller 21. September 2010 14:42
Aging brings more than the typical physical problems form seniors.  Most will survive family members and friends, and face other possible losses, causing depression or anxiety.  Some, following a doctor’s orders, may risk harm with prescription drugs without knowing that they are doing so.  Telemedicine, in these cases, seems to be a very compassionate gift from the medical community.

It commonly comes with longer life that family members and friends will pass on. As their generational companion list begins to shrink, depression and loneliness is inevitable.  The regular reminders of their own mortality can also be a source of anxiety.  In these tough financial times they may also lose property through foreclosure, or be swindled by unscrupulous individuals.  

Grief and loss therapy and mental health treatment can help to minimize emotional pain, but the tendency is to decline because they don’t want to leave home or they are immobile.  The pain will not improve without talking about it.  So if they have no one to grieve with, they become more isolated, and sometimes turn to alcohol or drugs for relief.

Prescription drugs are often ordered for seniors to stabilize physical or emotional pain.  Opiate pain killers and benzodiazepines can spell trouble, though, when individuals also use alcohol, take higher doses than prescribed, or use other medications.  Isolation and substance use can feed on each other, leaving a once vibrant person alone and numb.

These are the lesser known forms of alcohol abuse and drug abuse, and can be helped with addiction treatment.  However, it is quite rare for seniors to agree to enter drug treatment for the same reasons as above.  Sadly, younger family members tend to condone substance use to “ease the pain” of aging, and don’t offer proper assistance.  Every day is a risk that tragedy will strike by accident or drug overdose.

Telemedicine has the potential to improve the golden years for many individuals.  They don’t need to leave home to get mental health treatment or drug treatment.  There are specialists in both fields who work with seniors on related issues.  Grief and loss specialists can ease individuals through these processes, minimizing the duration of emotional pain.  Addiction treatment counselors can help them to see that drugs and alcohol add to problems if they are abused, and are never the solution for emotional pain.

Tarzana Treatment Centers in Los Angeles provides online therapy for mental health and drug addiction.  Our online treatment is delivered using the LiveVisit application, powered by MDLiveCare.  One only needs a computer with a webcam connected to the internet to participate.  This makes treatment convenient, accessible, and affordable.  Security is important in treatment, so LiveVisit runs behind several layers of encryption.  Phone access is available for those without a computer.

Telemedicine at Tarzana Treatment Centers is not limited to online mental health treatment and drug addiction treatment.  We also provide online medical care.  Our goal is to see that those who need treatment can get it.

Telemedicine Uses - Prescription Drug Treatment

by James Heller 10. September 2010 13:01
Even though the disease of addiction causes the same havoc for individuals regardless of the drug of choice, the road to prescription drug addiction often begins with innocent and legal use.  For this group, they must first admit that they have a problem with drug addiction, and then seek treatment.  Due to stigma and other factors, though, they may never seek treatment and sink deeper into addiction with more problems in tow.  Thankfully, telemedicine is available so they can get treatment before they lose everything and everyone important to them.

Whether it’s with alcohol, cocaine, methamphetamine, marijuana, heroin, or prescription drugs, addiction has similar symptoms that work together to destroy the lives of addicts and their loved ones.  The difference is in where the addiction begins.  Alcohol abuse and illegal drug abuse typically originate with individuals wanting to escape into the euphoria they provide.  Even though many cases of adolescent drug abuse begin with prescription drugs these days, a higher-than-average percentage of individuals begin using them for legitimate and legal reasons.

Doctors often prescribe opiate pain killers for physical relief and benzodiazepines for emotional relief.  This is good medicine in the short term.  However, both types of drugs are highly addictive.  Some formulations can take only a few days to cause physical dependence in patients.  Dependence is caused by the need to relieve drug withdrawals along with the body experiencing drug tolerance.  This means that with long term use, patients will feel ill if they don’t take it on a regular basis and need more of the drug to feel relief.

Since the drug taking routine is rooted in a reasonable need for relief, patients will continue using a drug with an assumed justification.  Once they accept that prescription drug addiction treatment is needed, though, they tend to postpone it because they are either too busy or are afraid of having a stigma attached to them.  Telemedicine can help them get the treatment they need without the time or stigma worry.

Tarzana Treatment Centers in Los Angeles provides telemedicine via video conference for prescription drug treatment.  Patients can attend individual and group sessions from their home or office computer with a webcam and internet connection.  Family members can also attend group sessions, even if they live out-of-state.  By eliminating travel to a drug treatment center, online drug treatment saves patients’ time and minimizes the risk that others will discover they are in treatment.

Telemedicine at Tarzana Treatment Centers is not limited to addiction treatment.  We also provide online mental health treatment and online medical care.  Our goal is to see that those who need treatment can get it.

Telehealth Technology Provides Security and Simplicity

by James Heller 9. September 2010 13:21
Tarzana Treatment Centers in Los Angeles provides telemedicine services to qualified patients in alcohol and drug treatment, mental health treatment, and primary medical care.  After careful research of the technology available, we chose to partner with MDLiveCare in Florida so we could deliver services conveniently and securely at affordable rates.  The technology was a key in making our decision considering what our patients would need in order to use these services.

During our research of available telehealth technologies for video conference sessions, we were happy to discover that most of our services could be delivered through this medium.  Assessments of new patients entering addiction treatment or mental health treatment can be completed before they come to one of our locations.  This allows our staff to better prepare for their arrival, and saves patients critical time in on-site admissions time.  It can also be used for outpatient services for some patients.  We can also see qualified patients in primary medical care from their homes and offices.  

The MDLiveCare technology is browser-based.  This means that patients simply need to open Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, or whatever they use on a daily basis, and log in to their account.  Once logged in, a simple interface makes it easy for them to schedule appointments with Providers, send and read secure messages with them, and view records.  Anyone who browses the internet should be able to use the interfaces we provide, known as MDLiveVisit and TherapyLiveVisit.

Much of the technology used for telehealth video conferencing today would be considered complicated by the everyday computer user.  Some require special software that, putting it simply, directly connects one specific computer with another over long distances.  This adds work for the patient in setting up the software, which may not go well and lead to a need for technical support.  Also, if the program crashes there is no backup means to connect to a session, creating a delay in services.  These are issues that patients do not want to deal with when they need health care.

The MDLiveVisit and TherapyLiveVisit interfaces that are used by Tarzana Treatment Centers require no initial setup on patient computers.  They only need a login ID and temporary password to get started.  Literally within minutes, patients can set an appointment to see one of our health care providers.  And, if the browser they are using happens to crash, they can switch to another to start or resume a session.  All of this simplicity is delivered with the same or better security as those described above.

The LiveVisit application was started using the popular Flash Player to deliver video.  This meant that almost anyone already had the software needed to send and receive video before they used LiveVisit.  To improve services, a switch was made to using the VSee video format in LiveVisit.  The new format uses less bandwidth, meaning that even patients with very slow internet access can send and receive smooth video.  Patients still do not need to install bulky software to use this advanced video format.

We chose to partner with MDLiveCare and use the LiveVisit telehealth applications because the simplicity and security satisfied our high standards in delivering services to patients.  The goal was to make getting treatment easier for patients, with almost no chance that problems will occur.  No special equipment is needed, either, other than an inexpensive webcam since high resolution is not necessary in LiveVisit.

Methadone Maintenance and Other MAT Options

by James Heller 9. September 2010 10:49
Tarzana Treatment Centers in Los Angeles offers several options for those seeking recovery from opiate dependenceMethadone Maintenance is a popular method that we offer for qualified individuals, as it has been successfully used for decades.  We also provide Buprenorphine Maintenance and a 21 Day Outpatient Detox for those seeking alternate methods of Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT).

Methadone Maintenance has proven to be a safe method of harm reduction therapy for individuals suffering from opiate addictions that can’t seem to maintain abstinence.  It gives them the opportunity to re-enter society and the workforce, and stop abusing heroin and a variety of prescription drugs.  Our program does not simply medicate patients, though.  We also provide counseling services so our clients can address the core issues of their addictions.

The term Medication Assisted Treatment covers methods of recovery that seek harm reduction or abstinence.  Tarzana Treatment Centers recognizes that while opiate addicts suffer the same disease, they don’t all find recovery in the same manner.  So we provide Buprenorphine Maintenance for those who don’t feel comfortable with Methadone as the medication to ease their opiate cravings.  

For those seeking abstinence, we provide a 21 Day Outpatient Detox that includes Outpatient Addiction Counseling Treatment.  This is a fine program for individuals who suffer from co-occurring mental health disorders that don’t feel comfortable in a residential environment.  It is also suitable for those who are still employed and have family obligations.  After successful detoxification, we can provide Naltrexone to qualified patients to reduce opiate cravings that may cause relapse.
