  • Pain Medication Abuse & Addiction }

    Pain Medication Abuse & Addiction

    Each year, more than 76 million people suffer from chronic pain — pain that lasts longer than 24 hours — and millions more suffer from acute pain. Learning to manage chronic pain can be a stressful, debilitating experience, leading many down a road where they find themselves dependent upon pain medication to get through the day. Just when you find that your pain is manageable, you become at risk of becoming addicted to the pain medication that has brought you relief. Over time, physical dependence can snowball into addiction.

  • Impaired Professionals }

    Impaired Professionals

    The impact of addiction is far reaching for anyone. But for physicians and white collar professionals it can be particularly difficult. Concerns about permanently damaging your career and earning potential as well as your personal reputation can make it especially difficult to seek assistance. Highly skilled and accomplished professionals are accustomed to exceling at what they do and as a result, are not always comfortable asking for help. Don’t put your career at risk. Call our Impaired Professionals hotline to start your recovery at (844) 242-0808.

  • Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) Services }

    Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) Services

    Our Intensive Outpatient Programs gives individuals the opportunity to continue living at home and working in the community during treatment. Individuals in recovery are able to begin implementing the skills acquired through the outpatient program and are provided the opportunity to process their experience in a therapeutic and supportive group environment.

  • Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) }

    Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)

    RiverMend Health Centers ’ Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) is a highly structured program of therapy and support services for adults experiencing addictions and/or dual disorders and is an alternative to inpatient hospitalization. This program is designed to treat chemical dependency for individuals who are able to tolerate the less intensive structure of a day program and have support outside the treatment environment. Our Partial Hospitalization Program offers all of the intensity of acute inpatient care without having to stay in the hospital overnight.

  • Family Counseling }

    Family Counseling

    Our counselors are a guiding force for helping patients integrate back into areas of their lives where their behavior may have left a destructive trail, including work and personal relationships. Part of that process involves consulting with the families of patients about what treatment options may be best suited for remedying the condition of their loved one. RiverMend Health Centers ’ counselors work closely with patients and families to identify relapse triggers, to educate about the family members about the psychological and social contributors to addiction and to encourage them to support an encouraging a healthy lifestyle and family environment.

  • Relapse Prevention }

    Relapse Prevention

    RiverMend Health Centers offers relapse preventation counseling and treatment for those patients in recovery, in combination with recovery documentation and drug testing. We continuously assess our treatment plans to ensure maximum success for our patients and to prevent relapse. RiverMend Health Centers work hard to help patients feel better, get clean and sober, and remain that way not only through detox and a few weeks or months -- but for years to come.

  • One on One & Group Counseling }

    One on One & Group Counseling

    RiverMend Health Centers offers one on one and group counseling and therapy for individuals immediately upon intake, during the Intensive Outpatient Program and Partial Hospitalization Program as well as in the aftercare and recovery phase of addiction treatment. Even after detox, when freedom from substance abuse is achieved, patients remain at high risk for relapse. Our counseling therapies are designed to fit the individual needs of each patient and address the psychological and social challenges and factors that are often powerful stimuli for relapse.
