Frequently asked questions

Does the program treat psychiatric disorders, too?

Many people with an addictive disorder also have depression, anxiety or other psychiatric symptoms. The treatment team will assess, monitor and address these symptoms during the course of the substance use treatment.

Is this an abstinence-based program?

Yes. Abstinence from alcohol, addictive prescription medications and illegal drugs provides the best opportunity for long-term recovery.

Who can get information about my treatment?

The confidentiality of patient records maintained by alcohol and drug abuse programs is protected by federal law. The programs may not disclose any information identifying a patient receiving care for alcohol or drug abuse unless the patient consents or a court order mandates disclosure.
