Vivitrol Improves Co-Occurring Mental Health Disorder Treatment

by James Heller 16. October 2012 11:50
When individuals suffer from addiction and co-occurring mental health disorders, treatment for both becomes a challenge.  This is largely due to the double impact of alcohol or drug cravings compounded by a desire to feel “normal”.  If the cravings are reduced to a level where they are no longer a trigger, this can greatly improve chances for successful therapy.

Tarzana Treatment Centers has found success in treating dual diagnosis sufferers with Vivitrol.  This monthly Naltrexone injection reduces cravings for alcohol or opiates, like heroin or prescription drugs.  Patients eligible for Vivitrol treatment have experienced longer terms of sobriety, making therapy more effective.
 
 
Substance use and mental health disorders can be difficult to treat on their own.  When they co-occur with an individual, both need to be treated as primary problems.  Each disorder will work against treatment of the other.  So treatment must be equally focused on both disorders or patients will almost certainly fall into a cycle of chronic relapses.  They must remain sober and clear-headed during therapy and, at the same time, resist the psychological urge to self-medicate with alcohol or drugs.

Providing medications to treat mental health disorders only works as long as patients are willing to take them.  Even if they do take them and begin to feel better, they may decide that they can handle a drink or go back to using drugs.  Relapses hinder therapy for mental health disorders because patients might disappear for some time or, at least, they won’t be able to focus on the core issues that make them abuse alcohol or opiates.

Vivitrol is highly effective in this area due to the fact that it only needs to be administered once every 30 days.  Patients don’t need to think about it.  And, once they get the injection, they can’t decide to stop taking it after a few days.  A window of 30 days is open to the patient and therapist where they can make great strides in the work they need to do.  And when patients see progress in those 30 days, they are more likely to continue with the monthly injections.

Tarzana Treatment Centers has seen patients achieve several months of sobriety and improved lives after Vivitrol treatment, when they had previously struggled to stay clean and sober for only a couple of weeks.  Please contact us today for more information.

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 and specialized services for HIV/AIDS care.  If you or a loved one needs help with alcohol dependencedrug addiction, or co-occurring mental health disorders or from other services we offer, please call us now at 888-777-8565 or contact us using our secure contact form.

If Doctors Would Diagnose Addiction

by James Heller 5. September 2012 14:10
If you consider that there are an estimated 22 million Americans with a drug or alcohol problem, you might assume that doctors regularly diagnose and treat them.  Reality is, though, that most doctors have never been trained to in addiction treatment, and usually treat only the symptoms of the disease.  Fortunately, some new treatments involving medications may change this sad situation.
 
 
One big problem with alcoholism and drug addiction is that so many medical problems result from them.  Substance abuse negatively affects different parts of the body, depending on the drug being used.  Alcohol abuse, without exaggeration, harms every cell in the body.  To the untrained in addiction medicine, the symptoms of these abuses might appear as primary problems, only requiring common treatments.  For example, a doctor may prescribe specialized medication for a bleeding ulcer and schedule a follow-up visit.

Another problem with addiction is that alcoholics and drug addicts are not quick to admit their problems.  Even if a doctor asks about drinking and drug use habits, these patients will minimize or deny it.  Short of the patient arriving at 9:00am and smelling of alcohol, or having injection track marks up and down their arms, untrained doctors will not see a reason to investigate.  The answer is often accepted as true and the doctor looks to heal the symptom.  

The result is that alcoholics and drug addicts get temporary relief from negative symptoms of their disease, but don’t receive, at the very least, guidance from their doctors on how to prevent them in the future.  The worst result is that people die every day from the negative effects of alcoholism and drug addiction.  Most of them could have been saved had they been given early treatment for the primary disease of addiction.

According to this article, there is possible good news on the horizon.  There is an effort to attract doctors to the addiction treatment field, and to promote addiction medicine as a recognized subspecialty.  Medical treatment and new prescription drugs are proving to be effective means of helping addicts to recover.  Counseling for the psycho-social aspects of the disease is still important, but detox and craving reduction medications, like Vivitrol, have become very beneficial in the early days of recovery.

Tarzana Treatment Centers provides Vivitrol treatment for alcohol and opiate craving reduction, for example.  This follows medical detoxification, which is important to avoid the severe effects of withdrawals.  We have seen some great success stories from patients who previously struggled with relapse after their first Vivitrol injection.  

Imagine if doctors could diagnose addiction from the symptoms they normally treat.  They could make a referral to a detox facility, followed with Vivitrol for eligible patients, and maybe residential or outpatient treatment.  Patients tend to listen to doctors more than they would even to their most beloved family members.  Hopefully, the effort mentioned above can spread so more of those who suffer can get the treatment they need.

Opioid Withdrawal Treatment

by James Heller 31. July 2012 09:45
Since the sap of the opium poppy was first used to craft a remedy for pain and discomfort, it has been observed as being both helpful and harmful.  Opioids can get patients through the worst of serious physical maladies, and then turn them into struggling addicts.  Withdrawal symptoms from opioids can be severe, so this often drives addicts to continue using the drugs long after they are medically necessary.

Tarzana Treatment Centers provides Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) options for individuals suffering from opioid addiction.  Medical detoxification works with the body to slowly taper off of opioids until it is cleansed.  Methadone Maintenance is meant for individuals who have suffered multiple relapse, and helps to reduce opioid cravings.  Both opioid withdrawal treatment methods are meant to help you achieve long-term abstinence.

Patients are regularly prescribed opioid medications like Vicodin, Oxycodone, and Morphine to manage pain ranging from headaches to broken bones.  These medications are very effective and highly addictive, so they are meant to be used for a short period of time.  The addiction can set in so rapidly, though, that the brain will trick the body into thinking the medication is still needed for “pain relief”.  With further use, the body becomes opioid dependent.

Opioids have been manufactured legally and illegally, for medicinal and recreational use, for over a century.  Heroin is notorious for being extremely addictive.  Once provided as a legal medication, it is now one of the most damaging drugs sold illegally on the street.  The opioid withdrawal symptoms from heroin are so intense that, some say, you can become addicted with one use.  Heroin is once again gaining popularity among teens and young adults, and is reaching across all social and financial circles.

A very small percentage of opioid addicts can “kick” the drug without medical assistance.  Successful opioid withdrawal treatment requires MAT to minimize the risk of relapse.  The goal must be complete abstinence.  Treating the withdrawal symptoms is only a part of the battle, though.  Quality treatment, like at Tarzana Treatment Centers, also includes counseling and an option for Vivitrol in aftercare 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 and specialized services for HIV/AIDS care.  If you or a loved one needs help with alcohol dependencedrug addiction, or co-occurring mental health disorders or from other services we offer, please call us now at 888-777-8565 or contact us using our secure contact form.

Convenient Vivitrol Treatment

by James Heller 2. July 2012 15:03
Motivation for recovery can change in an instant for alcoholics and opiate addicts.  They’ll say they want Vivitrol treatment to reduce cravings and help them focus on treatment.  The addict brain then does everything it can to change that decision.  Because of this, Tarzana Treatment Centers makes every effort to speed the process from decision to Vivitrol injection.

According to the California Department of Alcohol and Drug Programs (ADP) in the excerpt below, a collaboration of effort is required to treat a patient successfully with Vivitrol:

-- Begin External Content --

“Collaboration between substance abuse treatment providers and primary care physicians and clinicians on behalf of alcohol-dependent individuals is key to obtaining the best treatment outcomes for this chronic, relapsing disease.”

-- Source: http://wwwtest.adp.ca.gov/Pressroom/News/Focus/June2012/INDEX.html#feat1 --
<Read the entire article for details about Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) when you finish this>

Patients must be assessed for Vivitrol treatment by qualified medical personnel.  Tarzana Treatment Centers’ alcohol and drug treatment program has licensed medical professionals on staff daily.  This minimizes the time between decision and assessment.  Every step like this toward getting the actual injection helps a patient to resist thoughts suggesting to not go through with the decision.

Vivitrol is available by prescription only, which is the next step toward injection.  Our daily staff of medical personnel includes licensed prescribers.  This minimizes another possible waiting period, and may even eliminate it if the assessor and prescriber is the same person.  The only step left is to receive the Vivitrol injection, and we keep a stock ready for new patients.  

Collaboration between providers is easy at Tarzana Treatment Centers because they all work in the same facility and use the same software to track patient care.  Nobody can promise that you will get a Vivitrol injection the same day you make the decision, but we make it possible.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Subutex Maintenance Information

by James Heller 8. September 2010 12:18

Tarzana Treatment Centers in Los Angeles recognizes that while opiate addicts suffer the same disease, they don’t all find recovery in the same manner.  So we provide Subutex Maintenance for those who don’t feel comfortable with Methadone as the medication to ease their opiate cravings.  These harm reduction strategies are similar forms of Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT).

Subutex is buprenorphine, an opioid used primarily to treat heroin, prescription drug, and other opiate addictions.  It can be used both for medical detoxification, and for harm reduction treatment in the form of Subutex Maintenance.  And at Tarzana Treatment Centers, all of our Subutex patients receive addiction counseling in the course of their treatment.  This greatly enhances their chances for long-term recovery from opiate dependence.
