Treating Adults Experiencing Drug / Alcohol Abuse
The Healing Way is a multi-service program providing services to adults experiencing drug and/or alcohol abuse, emotional, social and economic problems. Using a staff multidisciplinary approach, The Healing Way focuses upon the client as a person and their needs. The philosophy of The Healing Way is holistic in nature. Clients’ problems are approached in a comprehensive manner that acknowledges the complexity of each person’s life context. The Healing Way utilizes several treatment models within both group therapy and individual sessions.
- Prevention or reduction of withdrawal symptoms.
- Prevention or reduction of opoid cravings.
- Prevention of relapse to use of addictive opioids.
- Restoration to or toward normalcy of any physiologic function disrupted by chronic opioid use Methadone regularly administered at steady state is present at levels sufficient to maintain alertness without craving or drug preoccupation throughout the dosing interval – usually 24 hours. When the patient is on the correct dose at a steady state, at no time does the rate of extent of change in blood levels cause a sensation of being high or result in withdrawal symptons.

Clinical supervision also takes into consideration the consistent positive or negative urine screen results of patients.
