Methadone Maintenance:

Methadone is a synthetic narcotic agent that is used legally as both a pain medication and a blocking agent for the effects of heroin and other opiates, including Oxycontin. Methadone maintenance is not a cure for heroin addiction but has been called the most effective treatment method for opiate addiction. When combined with behavioral therapy, medical care, and support groups, methadone offers the best chance for long term recovery from heroin, opiate addiction.

Medication-Assisted Treatment:

Medication Assisted Therapy (MAT) is a proven, effective option for many individuals struggling to recover from opiate addiction. This treatment method offers individuals a reprieve from the physical symptoms of addiction and an opportunity to focus on the support programs and ongoing counseling crucial to leading a healthy, productive journey of recovery. Clients enrolled in Pyramid Healthcare's MAT program will meet with a nurse and/or physician at the facility briefly every day to take a prescribed dose of medication and participate in random, mandatory urine screens under supervision to assure their drug-free status. Once clients are stabilized and consistently meeting program requirements, daily attendance requirements can be reduced. Clients are also required to meet with a counselor, nurse, and /or physician to address his/her individualized addiction, recovery, and medical challenges and goals.

Buprenorphine Detox:

Buprenorphine (brand name Subutex, among others) is an opioid medication used to treat opioid addiction. Buprenorphine can prevent or significantly reduce withdrawal symptoms, making it easier to get and stay off opioids. Sometimes used alongside naloxone, dosage depends on the severity of each case. Many people stay on buprenorphine long-term, although some gradually reduce the dosage to come off it.

Vivitrol:

Vivitrol is an injectable prescription medicine used to treat alcohol and opioid dependence. Administered only with medical approval, VIVITROL blocks opioid receptors in the brain, which helps reduce cravings and prevent relapse. VIVITROL is non-addictive and extended-release, so it only needs to be taken once a month. Before starting VIVITROL, you must be opioid-free for at least 7-10 days in order to avoid sudden opioid withdrawal symptoms.

Psychotropic Medication:

Psychotropic medications (aka psychodynamic medication) are any medicines used specifically to affect and/or alter a patient's mind, emotions, and behaviors. Such psychiatric medicines are often used to change chemical levels in the brain that impact a person's mood and behavior. These medications include mood stabilizers, antidepressants, anti-ADHD drugs, and anti-anxiety medications.

Level of Care:

Outpatient:

Their outpatient treatment programs provide individual counseling, group therapy sessions, and life skills workshops to give clients the tools necessary to live a sober and healthy lifestyle. Individuals and their families are also educated on the nature of addiction, how to avoid relapse, and strategies for maintaining a drug-free lifestyle. Clients in their outpatient treatment programs continue to live in their own homes, allowing them to uphold work, family, and academic commitments. They may not reside in a guaranteed sober environment, and may be forced to confront and cope with triggers present in their everyday lives during recovery.

Individualized Treatment:

Certain drug and alcohol rehabs have standard treatment regimes they expect all patients to follow. Others offer individualized treatment, meaning they tailor treatment to a person's specific background and needs. For example, a rehab facility may adjust a treatment program to take into account the type of drug or addiction from which the person suffers, their age, medical condition(s), religious beliefs, or lifestyle.

12-Step:

Their treatment programs rely on the 12-step philosophy as an integral part of recovery. Clients attend Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous as part of their treatment regimen. Beginning steps involve admitting powerlessness over the addiction and creating a spiritual basis for recovery. Middle steps including making direct amends to those who've been hurt by the addiction, and the final step is to assist others in addiction recovery in the same way.

Aftercare Support:

In order to give their clients the best possible chance at remaining sober, they offer aftercare programs that provide some structure, oversight, and planning post-treatment. They consider client wants and needs when making arrangements for aftercare. If the client was part of a residential program, staff may recommend that they step down into an intensive outpatient, outpatient, or partial hospitalization program to continue specialty treatment. Other aftercare options include halfway or transitional housing.

Treatment Focus:

Substance Abuse:

Substance rehabs focus on helping individuals recover from substance abuse, including alcohol and drug addiction (both illegal and prescription drugs). They often include the opportunity to engage in both individual as well as group therapy.

Opioid Addiction:

Opioid rehabs specialize in supporting those recovering from opioid addiction. They treat those suffering from addiction to illegal opioids like heroin, as well as prescription drugs like oxycodone. These centers typically combine both physical as well as mental and emotional support to help stop addiction. Physical support often includes medical detox and subsequent medical support (including medication), and mental support includes in-depth therapy to address the underlying causes of addiction.

Alcoholism:

The goal of treatment for alcoholism is abstinence. Those with poor social support, poor motivation, or psychiatric disorders tend to relapse within a few years of treatment. For these people, success is measured by longer periods of abstinence, reduced use of alcohol, better health, and improved social functioning. Recovery and Maintenance are usually based on 12 step programs and AA meetings.

Dual Diagnosis:

Pyramid Healthcare provides dual diagnosis treatment, which addresses symptoms of both mental health disorders and addiction, for adults at select facilities. By combining the most effective aspects of mental health care and substance abuse into a continuum, the chances of a client successfully maintaining sustained sobriety increase greatly. Many Pyramid Healthcare clinicians and counselors are certified in the treatment of co-occurring mental health disorders and are able to effectively and expertly apply the tenets of dual diagnosis treatment. Clients receiving dual diagnosis treatment will receive psychiatric care and proper medication to address their diagnosis while simultaneously participating in addiction recovery programs.

Therapy Programs:

Family Therapy:

Family involvement can be critical to a client’s success during and after treatment. Pyramid Healthcare has developed a family program designed to educate the client’s family members about the disease of addiction. This program helps both the individual in specialty treatment and their family learn skills and develop behaviors effective in minimizing the negative impact of the addiction on the familial relationship. Their family program can also open lines of communication between the client and their family members. Pyramid Healthcare counselors can provide family counseling if it is requested by the client.

Individual Therapy:

In individual therapy, a patient meets one-on-one with a trained psychologist or counselor. Therapy is a pivotal part of effective substance abuse treatment, as it often covers root causes of addiction, including challenges faced by the patient in their social, family, and work/school life.

Trauma Therapy:

Trauma therapy addresses traumatic incidents from a client's past that are likely affecting their present-day experience. Trauma is often one of the primary triggers and potential causes of addiction, and can stem from child sexual abuse, domestic violence, having a parent with a mental illness, losing one or both parents at a young age, teenage or adult sexual assault, or any number of other factors. The purpose of trauma therapy is to allow a patient to process trauma and move through and past it, with the help of trained and compassionate mental health professionals.

Group Therapy:

Group therapy is any therapeutic work that happens in a group (not one-on-one). There are a number of different group therapy modalities, including support groups, experiential therapy, psycho-education, and more. Group therapy involves treatment as well as processing interaction between group members.

Experiential Therapy:

Experiential therapy is a form of therapy in which clients are encouraged to surface and work through subconscious issues by engaging in real-time experiences. Experiential therapy departs from traditional talk therapy by involving the body, and having clients engage in activities, movements, and physical and emotional expression. This can involve role-play or using props (which can include other people). Experiential therapy can help people process trauma, memories, and emotion quickly, deeply, and in a lasting fashion, leading to substantial and impactful healing.

Life Skills:

Life skills trainings involve all the skills a person must have in order to function successfully in the world. These include time management, career guidance, money management, and effective communication. Truly successful addiction recovery is based on the ability to not only live substance-free, but to thrive. Life skills teaches the practical necessities of functioning in society, which sets clients up for success in life, and therefore sobriety.
