Total Recovery Oriented Treatment
Chemical dependency is not a moral failing or a weakness of character. It is a chronic disease, much like diabetes or hypertension. Once you have acknowledged your dependency and its impact on you, it is time to get help. At Rassik Complete Recovery, we recognize that your addiction is a serious illness and are committed to providing you comprehensive care.
Rassik offers Total Recovery Oriented Treatment, a tailor made program that will help you live a substance free life. We use a bio-psycho-social model to address your condition from three aspects: physical health, psychological well-being and social repercussion.
Medication Assisted Treatment
There are different approaches to detoxification and we do not recommend ‘Cold Turkey’. Withdrawal and cravings are part of the natural process of rehabilitation. Medications that decrease the intensity of these symptoms, like Suboxone, Subutex and Naltrexone, greatly increase the odds of full recovery. The brain needs time to heal from the effects of drugs and alcohol and these newer medicines are generally non addicting or have very little potential for abuse. They normally work within 3-6 months, but may be used for longer periods.
• We take a detailed history which includes your physical health, social situation and substance use.
• We obtain your medical records including lab reports from your primary health care provider.
• A multidisciplinary team formulates an individual treatment plan for your unique situation.
• We encourage you to schedule regular visits to ensure long term recovery.
Coordination of Care
Rassik coordinates care with your other providers including inpatient and outpatient drug and alcohol centers, therapists, councilors and medical doctors. If you do not have a specific provider we are happy to help you find one.
There are specialized services for licensed professionals (doctors, nurses, lawyers and pilots) who may need additional help with diversion programs and interacting with licensing boards.
