Highlife Recovery recognizes that addiction and mental health disorders are complex conditions that require comprehensive care to achieve lasting recovery. As such, our medical services play a crucial role in providing a well-rounded approach to treatment. Our team of medical professionals works collaboratively with our behavioral health specialists to provide a comprehensive approach to care. This approach includes the use of medication-assisted treatment, which has been proven effective in helping individuals overcome addiction and manage mental health symptoms.
Our team takes pride in offering comprehensive behavioral health treatment for those with substance use disorder. This treatment begins with a medical assessment for every individual starting our program. Our providers specialize in treatment of substance use disorders and mental health conditions. Medical treatment in our program can take the form of prescription medications which have been proven as evidence-based treatments, consulting with other providers to advocate for best treatment approaches, treatment planning with health concerns and / or other complicating factors, and more. Our medical team coordinates with each individual's care team to ensure each individual has the best chances to succeed on the path to recovery.
Medications for Treating Substance Use Disorder
Medications can be prescribed to help alleviate symptoms associated with various substance use disorders in combination with behavioral health therapies. Medications are a highly effective treatment approach for addiction and have been shown to increase the chances of successful recovery.
Medications can be prescribed to treat various types of substance use disorders, including opioid, alcohol, and nicotine addiction. The medications work by reducing the cravings and withdrawal symptoms that people experience when they stop using drugs or alcohol. This makes it easier for people to stay sober and focus on their recovery.
In addition to medication, treatment typically involves behavioral therapies, such as counseling, to help individuals address the root causes of their addiction and develop healthy coping mechanisms. By combining medication with therapy, our medical team is able to provide a comprehensive approach to addiction treatment that has been proven to be highly effective.
In addition to addiction medicine, our clinic also offers psych medications to help individuals manage symptoms of depression, anxiety, and bipolar disorder. Our team of medical professionals works closely with our behavioral health specialists to ensure that each individual receives personalized care that meets their unique needs.
Depression is a common mental health disorder that affects millions of individuals each year. Our clinic offers a variety of psych medications that have been proven effective in treating depression, including selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) and serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs). These medications work by balancing the levels of neurotransmitters in the brain that regulate mood.
Anxiety is another common mental health disorder that can be effectively treated with psych medications. Our clinic offers medications such as benzodiazepines and selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) to help individuals manage symptoms of anxiety. Additionally, we provide behavioral therapies that can help individuals develop coping skills to manage their anxiety in daily life.
Bipolar disorder is a complex mental health condition that requires a comprehensive approach to treatment. Our clinic offers a variety of medications to help individuals manage the symptoms of bipolar disorder, including mood stabilizers and atypical antipsychotics. We also offer behavioral therapies to help individuals manage the emotional and behavioral changes that occur with bipolar disorder.
