At the Lindner Center of HOPE, we understand that addiction is a disease. When struggling with Substance use disorders (SUDs), like so many medical conditions, a patient often needs a combination of medical care and professional support to manage it.
That’s why we’ve assembled a strong team of dedicated addiction specialists who create individualized plans for each of our patients. Plans may include medication-assisted treatment, therapy, support groups, combined with other comprehensive methods, like treating for possible underlying issues, such as depression or anxiety.
Because the most effective treatments treat the whole person, we can also help our patients with related medical concerns, like pregnancy while addicted, HIV and STDs and other conditions by connecting them with resources in the community or working collaboratively with other healthcare providers. We even offer resources to help our patients get back on track in their everyday life, recovery skills building and even linkage to vocation, education and employment assistance.
Medication assisted treatment
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Dual Diagnosis/Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment
These two terms describe a person who is not only addicted to drugs or alcohol, but also has a mental or emotional illness, such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, etc. Facilities that treat patients with dual-diagnosis or co-occurring disorders provide psychiatric treatment in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation services.
Some facilities have an addiction treatment protocol that all patients or clients are expected to follow, while others customize or individualize treatment based on a person’s unique needs and circumstances. Factors that may affect treatment decisions include age, lifestyle, medical conditions, type of drug, religious beliefs, etc.
