Alcoholism – also known as alcohol use disorder, alcohol addiction, or alcohol dependence – is the inability to control one’s drinking and alcohol consumption due to a physical and/or emotional dependence on alcohol. Alcohol withdrawal can be equally dangerous and even life threatening if not done properly. While most alcohol rehabs focus only on detox for the duration of an alcohol withdrawal timeline, they don’t take enough measures ensure the patient stays clean after detox. At Mitchell Medical PC, we tailor each treatment to the patient – from detoxing the patient in the comfort of their own home to medically assisted treatments such as VIVITROL and NALTREXONE – to ensure the patient can manage their alcohol use in the long term.
Inpatient rehabs often only focus on the detox process, without helping with a patient’s long-term goal of staying sober. That’s why we offer outpatient treatment for those struggling to overcome their substance use disorders. Each treatment is tailored to the individual’s addiction and life, from detox at home to ongoing checkups and medically assisted treatment ( MAT ) to ensure long term sobriety.
Substance abuse disorders stem from both mental and physical dependence. While medically assisted treatment ( MAT ) can help combat withdrawals and physical addiction, we take the psychological side of addiction very seriously. All patients are referred to a psychologist for cognitive behavioral therapy ( CBT ) in parallel to their treatment at Mitchell Medical PC.
Like with Alcohol, withdrawal from Benzodiazepines (or benzos for short) can be deadly if not treated properly. Benzodiazepine withdrawal – including from Xanax, Klonopin, Ativan, and Valium – should not be immediate (or “cold turkey”) and should be closely monitored by an addiction medicine specialist. Mitchell Medical PC specialize in benzodiazepine detox and, with expertise in medically assisted treatment (MAT), can help wean patients off their benzo dependence at a pace that is both safe and faster than most practitioners.
If you’re in the grips of addiction, and you want to find release, detoxification is the first step — and it’s a scary one, both physically and mentally. To help ease the transition we, at Mitchell Medical P.C., offer at-home detox programs. With our help, patients can start on the road to recovery in the comfort of their own homes, taking the first steps toward an addiction-free life.
