In Adelanto, California, Dr. Matney focuses on long-term drug rehabilitation that will set patients up for success as they battle against this chronic disease. Many people think that drug rehab is a one-time occurrence; after a month or two of treatment, the patient will be healed and will be no different than they were before the addiction began. However, as a chronic disease, drug addiction requires ongoing rehab that focuses on lifestyle changes and that may require ongoing counseling or medication. In addition, patients should continue to attend ongoing counseling sessions as well as consultations with Dr. Matney to ensure that they are set up for continuing success.
Dr. Matney Provides Individualized Recovery Programs
Dr. Matney realizes that what works for one Adelanto patient will not work for everyone. Therefore, he uses a variety of treatment modalities, including medication, outpatient treatment, and inpatient care, to ensure that each patient receives the care that will be most successful for him or her. The choice is often made based on the needs and well-being of the patient as well as on the drug that is being abused.
In addition, Adelanto residents should realize that drug rehab is not just for those who are addicted to illicit street drugs. In fact, addiction to painkillers and other prescription drugs is a growing problem and is just as serious as street drug addictions are. Many of the treatment methods look the same both for prescription drug abuse as well as for illicit drug abuse. Suboxone or buprenorphine can be used for opioid addictions as well as for heroin addictions. However, because there are currently no medications approved for the treatment of prescription stimulants, therapy or counseling is typically the best option for rehab in this case.
Adelanto Group & Family Therapy
Group therapy is one good option for Adelanto Drug Rehabilitation. However, one-on-one therapy sessions may also be useful in some instances for in-depth counseling and are also used extensively for teenagers who have been shown not to do as well as adults do in group therapy sessions.
