Drug addiction is a complicated and chronic disease which impacts the afflicted individual in every domain of his or her life. Opiate addiction is highly destructive due to it being a chronic brain disorder and especially resistant to abstinence based treatment. Research has demonstrated the most effective treatment for opiate addiction is a combination of opiate replacement therapy, one-on-one counseling and social support. Through medication assisted treatment we aim to reduce the negative consequences of opiate addiction.
Here at Santa Rosa Treatment Program, our highly trained and certified professional staff takes the time that is needed to help opiate dependent individuals achieve sobriety and regain stability in their day to day life. Medication assisted treatment involves the administration of medication daily at our treatment facility. This medication works by stopping all symptoms of withdrawal, decreasing intense drug cravings and by blocking other opiates so that illicit use on top of the medication does not produces euphoric effects. In addition to medication we offer comprehensive counseling support for both our clients and their families. Our program is an excellent choice for individuals who have found abstinence based treatment to be ineffective or for those who are unable to take time away from home and work for inpatient treatment.
