Addiction Medicine

Whether a patient is addicted to drugs or alcohol, a full recovery is possible. Concierge MD LA helps our patients achieve a healthy, clean-living lifestyle with personalized in-home detox and private rehab recovery services.

Substances We Treat

Substance abuse refers to the overuse of an addictive drug, including alcohol. There are many types of substance abuse, and Concierge MD LA offers in-home addiction rehab for the following types of drugs:

Alcohol

Alcoholism happens when a person becomes physically dependent on alcoholic drinks. This dependency can impact a person’s finances, career, relationships, and day-to-day life.

Opioids

Opioids include both prescription and non-prescription medications for pain relief. These medications are highly addictive. Over time, the body develops a tolerance for opioids, meaning that the body needs increasingly higher doses to achieve the same effect. These high doses can lead to an overdose.

Tobacco

Used in both cigarettes and cigars, the nicotine in tobacco products is highly addictive and can cause both physical and financial impacts in a person’s life. Additionally, the additives that are contained in many tobacco products can cause negative long-term health effects.

Methamphetamines

Methamphetamines, more commonly known as ‘meth’, is an addictive illicit stimulant drug That accounted for 15% of all overdose deaths in 2017. Methamphetamines that are cut with opioids can likewise be potentially fatal when used.

Cocaine

Cocaine is an addictive illicit stimulant drug. Cocaine that is cut with synthetic additives can be potentially fatal when used. Cocaine overdoses can be dangerous, leading to hospitalization or death.

Benzodiazepine

Benzodiazepines, also called ‘benzos’ for short, belong to a class of prescription sedative drugs. They are typically prescribed for their calming effect. Benzos may be used for a wide variety of conditions, including anxiety, insomnia, seizures, and others. In therapeutic doses over short periods of time, patients can use benzodiazepines safely. However, benzos are very addictive. The withdrawal symptoms that come with benzodiazepine can be dangerous, so having medically managed rehab is important for the patient’s safety.

Heroin

Heroin is an addictive illicit opiate drug that can be injected, snorted, or smoked. A heroin overdose can cause hypoxia, where the amount of oxygen that reaches the brain decreases. Hypoxia can cause both short-term and long-term damage to the body. In some cases, heroin overdose can lead to death. In addition, heroin with additives such as sugar, powdered milk, or starch can cause long-term physical damage.

Our Rehab Plan

Successful drug rehab programThe journey to a successful drug rehab recovery can be difficult, but with the right support and care, it is possible to overcome drug addiction.

What makes a successful rehab journey? Drug detox is where every patient will start, but it is just one element of a full rehabilitation program. In order to achieve lasting results from an addiction recovery program, additional therapies may be necessary to address triggers or behaviors.

When we develop a patient’s home detox plan, we may recommend support services from the list below:

Private In-Home Detox

Both short and long-term addiction to drugs and alcohol causes damage to the body and brain. As the first step in any addiction recovery program, in-home detox aims to wean the body off its dependence on drugs and give it an opportunity to heal. This step physically prepares patients to tackle the mental and behavioral aspects of drug addiction.

Private in-home detox combines the professional care of a clinic and the individualized attention of a concierge doctor for optimal results. In addition, this service saves clients time by fitting into schedules with minimal disruption to the day.

Concierge Medical Services

Our detox programs are overseen by our medical staff who design individualized treatment plans optimized to help patients reach their recovery goals. Our staff also provides concierge in-home medical care throughout the addiction recovery process, monitoring the patient, making changes to medications, and adjusting the recovery plan as needed.

Drug & Alcohol Counseling

Working with a counselor helps patients build a way of living without substance use. This counseling aims to educate the patient with the goal of helping the patient make informed choices. Topics may include information about community resources, coping mechanisms, trigger avoidance, or details about the drug that a patient is using. Counseling will also address a patient’s emotional well-being and strategies to help prevent relapse.

Case Management

Our case managers collaborate with the treatment team to provide the most effective care by assessing the specific individual client’s needs in planning a path to recovery.

Drug & Alcohol Testing

Periodic drug and alcohol testing reinforce a client’s path to recovery by ensuring there is accountability when it comes to living a healthy sober lifestyle. We also include preventative measures into our drug rehab plan to help patients take steps to make the necessary adjustments in their lives.

Sober Companionship and Life Coaching

A sober companion, also known as a recovery coach, is a trained professional who provides dedicated assistance to patients who are recovering from drug and alcohol abuse. This companion is a person who the patient can reach out to and rely on for support and advice during their return to a sober lifestyle. Working with a sober companion helps to foster accountability that ultimately helps clients maintain sobriety.

A life coach is a trained professional who can offer help and counseling about careers and personal goals. These people can serve as a guide to help clients develop a plan for pursuing their passion.

Both sober companion and life coaches help patients navigate challenges to achieve lasting success during and after recovery.

Interventions

An intervention involves organizing friends and family who are close to an individual struggling with substance abuse to encourage them to accept help or seek treatment.

An intervention is a carefully planned meeting with a trained intervention counselor. The professional intervention counselor is a neutral third party who helps mediate and guide the meeting.

During the intervention, friends and family may show the person their support through letters or speeches. Interventions can also include lists of what a friend or family member will no longer tolerate and the consequences of continued substance abuse. At the end of the intervention, the person will decide whether or not to seek treatment.

Mental Health

Many people with substance abuse problems often have a coexisting mental health issue. Diagnosing mental health disorders is crucial for finding the appropriate treatment and creating a new lifestyle.

IV Hydration & NAD Detox

Our IV NAD detox treatments are an invaluable tool that we utilize to help our patients in their recovery process. Since cravings can disrupt in-home detox, we offer NAD IV treatments to improve patients’ comfort. Research shows that NAD helps naturally curb cravings and reduce the symptoms of withdrawal. Studies have shown that NAD IV treatments reduced the chance of relapse 12 to 20 months post-treatment.

While NAD+ is also available as an oral supplement, we offer NAD by way of IV therapy because of its superior absorption rate and effectiveness than oral supplements.
