As an addiction consultant, I help people suffering from addiction and their families to navigate the addiction treatment system.
Facing addiction is incredibly difficult. When you or your loved one is finally ready to get help, it can feel overwhelming and impossible to know the most appropriate next steps.
Endless questions come up about the options …
- What kind of treatment is best?
- What are the options available in your area?
- Do you need detox?
- Do you need inpatient addiction care?
- What are the outpatient options for addiction treatment?
- Would medicine be helpful or required?
- Are there support options for families?
Many people who have been trying to find their own way through the system without the support of a specialist, feel like even after they finally find a treatment option (such as an inpatient residential program), there is no support after they leave and return home.
Many people end up relapsing simply because they weren’t set up to get the ongoing care that they needed to stay in recovery, or simply didn’t know the best next steps to take. For some people feeling like they do not know where to begin is enough to not get help.
As your personal consultant, I act as professional guide to help you navigate the complex system, answer all of these questions, and make a plan that will allow you to receive the best care possible, and therefore the best chances at recovery.
Together we review your unique situation and needs, and put together a step-by-step treatment plan that focuses on a comprehensive and longitudinal approach to recovery. Depending on your needs, this may involve different phases of treatment as appropriate, including an ongoing plan for staying in recovery at each stage in the process.
