We work to disrupt the cycles of struggle through effective Community and individual programming and support for those experiencing addiction. From medications to support groups, intensive programs to education–there are so many tools that can help on the journey to recovery. No matter how you find recovery, the most important step is getting there. Like any big life change, recovery doesn’t happen overnight.
The addiction services we offer provide clients with an 8-12 week program that is designed to support behavioral changes and reduce risks in areas such as anti-social thinking, anti-social peer associations, individual impulse control and substance abuse. Our structured curriculum uses evidence-based practices to help clients make positive changes in their lives. Through our addiction services, clients receive compassionate support and effective strategies to help them overcome their addiction, improve their habits, and enhance their overall quality of life. Our goal is to empower individuals to take control of their lives and lead healthy, fulfilling lives free from addiction.
At Embrave, we believe in supporting and empowering our community through innovative, evidence-based practices. Harm reduction falls squarely within this philosophy. By providing a safe and non-judgmental space for individuals struggling with addiction or other high-risk behaviors, we work to reduce the negative consequences of drug use and other risky behaviors. This commitment to harm reduction is just one aspect of our broader community innovation promise, and we’re proud to be at the forefront of this important movement.
Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) is the use of medications, in combination with counseling and other therapeutic techniques, to provide a “whole-patient” approach to the treatment of substance use disorders. Medications relieve the withdrawal systems and psychological cravings that cause chemical imbalances in the body. Research has shown that when provided at the proper dose, medications used in MAT have no adverse effects on a person’s intelligence, mental capability, or physical functioning.
Medication Assisted Treatment is provided to individuals only after an evaluation from a qualified medical provider. Medication Assisted Treatment is prescribed in the form of Vivitrol, Suboxone, Buprenorphine, Sublocade, or Naltrexone. Other medications may be prescribed at the prescriber’s discretion to assist with harm reduction and detoxification methods. All services are provided by a qualified and licensed Physician or mid-level provider such as a Nurse Practitioner. All services provided and prescriptions written will be at the discretion of the prescriber.
