Medical Treatment + MAT
Under the close supervision of our physicians and licensed clinicians, The Haven at Pismo provides medically supervised treatment services for all phases of drug, alcohol, and co-occurring disorder treatment. Recommended on an individualized basis and according to a guest’s health and addiction history, pharmaceutical intervention is helpful for managing detox and withdrawal symptoms, overcoming cravings, and treating dual diagnoses.
Medical Intervention for Substance Use
While it is not always necessary to use medication to treat substance abuse disorders, medication-assisted treatment can be quite effective in combination with evidence-based therapies and intensive counseling. In some cases, supervised medication regimens are used to reduce chemical cravings, make detox more comfortable, or treat co-occurring symptoms that contribute to the addiction cycle.
Haven at Pismo Beach Medication Services
- Medications for comfortable detox. To help clients transition safely and comfortably through detoxification, our clinicians may recommend supportive medications that shorten detox length and reduce withdrawal symptoms.
- Specialized co-occurring disorder treatment. Some co-occurring disorders and underlying medical conditions require prescription management. Effective therapy for co-occurring disorders may include stimulants, anti-depressants, beta-blockers, or antipsychotic medications.
Medical Treatment for Co-Occurring Disorders
Many co-occurring disorder patients require ongoing psychiatric care to deal with symptoms related to mental illness. Clients of The Haven work with credentialed mental health professionals and addiction specialists to address symptoms of depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, disordered eating, and personality disorders alongside substance abuse.
