As experts in Addiction and Trauma treatment, The Meadows’ staff works hard to remain on the cusp of innovative treatments and medical advancements that may improve patient care and recovery.

Addiction treatment is one of the many reasons patients seek out the groundbreaking work of The Meadows team and program. Here, we treat all phases of addiction. From detoxification to our primary treatment program, we build foundations for long-term sobriety and recovery. We focus on making changes in the way one lives, faces problems and relates to others.

While not all treatment options are recommended for every patient, our staff is committed to building awareness regarding all measures available.

In a perfect world, alcoholics and addicts could control their addictions medically via a one-a-day pill or, better yet, a monthly shot. While an interesting thought, this silver bullet would not address the over-arching core issues of addiction. But, what if there were a way to make the disease of addiction more manageable? What if the rate of recovery could jump from 20% to 90%?

The Meadows treatment program specializing in trauma and addiction will be hosting staff training on April 11, 2014, presented by Dr. Steven Peterson on Vivitrol, a prescription injectable medication used to:

  • Treat alcohol dependence
  • Prevent relapse to opioid dependence after opioid detox

While promising new treatment therapy does not eliminate the need for alcohol or drug recovery programs, such as the counseling provided by The Meadows, it may prove to be a powerful tool in addressing the physical cravings present in addiction.

The Meadows Vivitrol In-service is one more example as to how The Meadows team continues to research and work to build upon the highly effective addiction treatment work we do.

The Meadows Can Help

The effects of addiction influence every aspect of life for the individual who battles with it. At The Meadows, we treat all phases of addiction. From detoxification to our primary treatment program, we build the foundation for long-term sobriety and recovery. We focus on creating changes and improving the way one lives their life, faces obstacles and relates to others.

Recovery from addiction may not seem possible, but it is. Once a person admits to having a problem, he or she has started down the path of recovery. Many patients trust The Meadows’ program to help them begin their journey toward sobriety.
