Breaking free from an addiction can be extremely difficult, because addiction is both a serious chronic brain disease AND a psychological and spiritual crisis.
The InSight approach is to integrate treatment modalities that address the whole person: biological, relational, psychological, and spiritual. We help our patients find a solution that encompasses all aspects of the human person that is affected by addiction. This includes individual and group psychotherapy, psychological testing, diagnosis and treatment of co-occuring mental illness, life-coaching, peer support, and the utilization of anti-craving medication such as buprenorphine (e.g. Suboxone® and Sublocade®) or naltrexone (e.g. Vivitrol®) to help break the cycle of addiction while building a solid foundation for recovery.
We offer treatment for a variety of addictive disorders, including:
Those who have chosen to escape from the grip of addictions face a daunting uphill battle.
At InSight, we treat alcoholism, opioid addiction, and other forms of substance dependence with a sensitive and non-judgmental approach. Our goal is the complete liberation of each individual patient from the substances and behaviors that enslave them.
Many people today still view forms of addiction with a stigma, but medical science sees addiction as a long-term illness, similar to asthma, diabetes, and hypertension. The truth is, many people simply have a disposition towards addiction.
Addiction is an illness that affects people from all walks of life. It doesn’t matter whether you are rich or poor, male or female, employed or unemployed, young or old, or what your race or ethnicity is. Unfortunately, many are simply prone to these problems, and our society offers little protection from exposure to negative habit-forming experiences. And consistent research has shown that the prolonged use of addictive substances or behaviors has an impact on the brain that can be long-lasting.
Recovery takes patient perseverance, the right support, and the right tools to break free from addiction, but we believe anyone can do it if they are willing to accept help and commit to a program.
According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), Medication-Assisted Treatment is defined as:
Certain FDA-approved medicines are available to be prescribed, on a case-by-case basis AND in conjunction with counseling and other treatment methods, to those seeking recovery from addiction to opioid or alcohol
Such medications include:
Naltrexone (e.g. VIVITROL®): An oral or injectable medication used to treat either alcohol dependence or opioid addiction after complete detoxification.
SUBLOCADE®: A long-acting injectable buprenorphine product that eliminates the need for daily oral buprenorphine dosing.
