Substance Use Therapies Offered

Individual Therapy

Individual Therapy is a joint process between a therapist and a person in therapy. Common goals of therapy can be to inspire change or improve quality of life. People may seek therapy for help with issues that are hard to face alone. Individual therapy is also called therapy, psychotherapy, psychosocial therapy, talk therapy, and counseling.   

Therapy can help people overcome obstacles to their well-being. It can increase positive feelings, such as compassion and self-esteem. People in therapy can learn skills for handling difficult situations, making healthy decisions, and reaching goals. Many find they enjoy the therapeutic journey of becoming more self-aware. Some people even go to ongoing therapy for self-growth.

What are opiates?

Opioids are powerful natural and man-made drugs like heroin, oxycodone, hydrocodone, morphine, codeine, and fentanyl. Many are used as pain relievers, but they can be addictive. They can also be deadly if taken in high doses, taken in combination with other drugs, or given to people with certain pre-existing medical conditions..

Anyone Can Develop a Problem with Opioids

Know Your Options

If you can’t stop taking an opioid or the urge to use opioids is too strong to control,

Ask yourself:

  • Did you ever try to stop or cut down on your opioid usage, but couldn’t?
  • Have you ever used an opioid without knowing what it was or what it would do to you?
  • Have you ever made mistakes at work or school because you were using an opioid?
  • Does the thought of running out of opioids scare you?
  • Have you ever stolen opioids, or stolen to pay for opioids?
  • Have you ever been arrested or hospitalized because of your opioid use?
  • Have you ever overdosed on opioids? Has using opioids hurt your relationships with other people?

 If the answer to some or all of these questions is yes, you might have an opioid use disorder. It can happen to people of all ages, from all backgrounds.

Opioid use disorder is a health condition that can be successfully treated. Ongoing support is available to help maintain healthy habits. (1)


Opiate Withdrawal

If you stop or decrease the amount of opioids you’re taking, you may experience physical symptoms of withdrawal. Opioid withdrawal can be categorized as mild, moderate, moderately severe, and severe.

Everyone experiences opioid withdrawal differently. However, there’s typically a timeline for the progression of symptoms.

Although very unpleasant and painful, symptoms usually begin to improve within 72 hours. Within a week you should notice a significant decrease in the acute symptoms of opiate withdrawal.
