Tarzana Treatment Centers and Vivitrol
were featured on the Madeleine Brand Show on KPCC Public Radio. You can read about the topic and listen to the segment at this link:
At some point, every alcoholic and opiate (heroin
, pain killers
) addict has a desire to quit drinking or using drugs. Most of them don’t know how to get help or that they can get addiction treatment
at low or no cost, leading to a feeling of hopelessness. If that desire to quit passes without getting help, they can wind up in a downward spiral and eventually lose everything. The addiction can take a strong hold on them. If they find their way to a traditional detox-to-aftercare treatment program, it may require Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT)
When individuals have a difficult time with relapse after alcohol
or opiate detox
, recovery can seem out of reach. Some will repeatedly enter detox treatment, with a serious desire to recover from alcohol dependence or drug addiction. Alcohol
and opiate cravings
are a major trigger for relapse, and can strike both during and after detox. For the individuals we’re describing in this article, cravings are also a major distraction during treatment. So they rarely achieve long-term recovery.
We are committed to the promotion of Vivitrol treatment because we have witnessed the positive results for so many of these patients. Several individuals who had been to detox more than five times have now been sober during Vivitrol treatment for more than 6 months at a time. That is a big achievement for this group. Every sober moment they get in treatment will provide them with tools to stay sober. Relapse may not be a thing of the past in these cases, but recovery is finally in reach.
Telemedicine services are also available with online medical care, online mental health treatment, and online alcohol and drug treatment.
