Addiction Medicine Treatment
At Pacific Rehabilitation and Pain, we are committed to providing effective addiction medicine treatment in a supportive and stigma-free environment. Our approach focuses on harm reduction, individualized care, and a multidisciplinary treatment approach.
We offer a range of addiction treatment services, including:
We provide withdrawal management and various forms of buprenorphine-based medications for opiate use disorder. Please note that we cannot prescribe methadone for opiate use disorder.
Cannabis and Stimulants
While there are no FDA-approved medications specifically for cannabis or stimulant use disorder, we are available to evaluate and support patients who want to stop using these substances.
Our team assists patients in tapering off benzodiazepines using diazepam or clonazepam. Alprazolam prescriptions are not offered.
We welcome patients with other addictions, including hallucinogens or other prescription medications, on a case-by-case basis.
We offer withdrawal management (for mild/moderate withdrawal) and medications such as naltrexone, acamprosate, gabapentin, and disulfiram for alcohol use disorder.
At Pacific Rehabilitation and Pain, we are dedicated to helping individuals overcome addiction and regain control of their lives.
Prioritizing Harm Reduction
We understand that addiction can be a life-threatening disease. Our primary goal is to keep patients alive and prevent overdoses while we work towards their recovery. We recognize the complexity of addiction, often rooted in emotional trauma, mental illness, and multiple substance use.
For patients using multiple substances, we take a stepwise approach. We begin by addressing the most dangerous or treatable substance first, gradually moving towards comprehensive recovery. For instance, if a patient is using both methamphetamine and opiates, we focus on treating the opiate use disorder first before addressing the methamphetamine use.
Respect and Stigma-Free Environment
We believe in treating our patients with respect and dignity. Our language reflects this approach, using person-first language and non-judgmental terminology. By reducing stigma, we create a supportive environment for the care of individuals with addiction.
Successful addiction treatment involves a multidisciplinary approach. Alongside medications, we strongly encourage patients to seek counseling services and actively participate in mutual support groups such as Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, or Young People in Recovery.
