Kolmac provides high-quality, accessible treatment for drug addiction
Kolmac Outpatient Recovery Centers’ treatment is a multi-faceted program for drug addiction, designed to address each patient’s unique circumstances. Our three-phase, intensive outpatient (IOP) treatment addresses all aspects of addiction, including the psychological, social and biological aspects of the disease.
It’s important to understand that an addiction to drugs is a chronic disease, rather than an acute problem solved in a month or two. Our clinicians help patients learn skills that help them cope long-term, not just during one or two months of inpatient care.
Our detoxification process for drug addiction is effective, comfortable and safe
We know that patients who struggle with drug addiction can feel apprehensive about detoxification, but our compassionate clinicians make this process as comfortable as possible. Kolmac offers medication assisted opioid recovery to help manage the withdrawal symptoms. Our expert clinicians employ the most up-to-date medications and individualize the dosages to provide patients with optimal safety, comfort and symptom relief. The following medications help patients with drug addiction.
• Buprenorphine is a medication that helps ease or even eliminate drug cravings and withdrawal symptoms.
• Naltrexone is an “opioid antagonist” and prevents the rewarding effect that patients normally receive from the drugs.
• Vivitrol is a long acting injectable form of Naltrexone that blocks the effects of opiates and significantly reduces cravings for both opiates and alcohol.
Kolmac’s structured outpatient therapy helps patients recognize and cope with triggers
Unlike residential programs, our outpatient rehabilitation process allows patients who have a drug addiction to continue to work and live in the real world. During treatment, our patients encounter triggers and challenges in their daily life. Our staff is there to help them confront problems and develop strategies that will work long-term.
Kolmac is a pioneer in the outpatient recovery field. We expect our patients to practice total abstinence during treatment and beyond. Our research and experience show that abstaining from the substances to which a patient is addicted provides the best outcomes long term.
Our unique continuing care program facilitates long-term recovery
An addiction to drugs is a serious problem. Our clinicians believe that patients need follow-up care during their recovery and beyond. Kolmac’s unique continuing care program helps patients establish a firmly rooted recovery plan. Our recovery program is open to our patients and anyone who has completed an inpatient rehabilitation treatment program.
During the continuing care phase of treatment, patients participate in weekly group therapy sessions with Kolmac professionals while also participating in community support groups. Patients who are dealing with a drug addiction reap the rewards of this ongoing care and support because they strengthen their resolve and firm up their plans to remain drug-free.
Support from family and loved ones is a critical part of treatment for drug addiction
Our staff encourages family and friends to participate in our weekly support groups for loved ones. We also encourage anyone who is helping a loved one with drug addiction to seek out community support groups. For more information about Kolmac and drug addiction treatment, contact us.
