7 Commonly Asked Questions About Synergy Addiction Treatment Centers

We answer hundreds of questions every day from people interested in learning about Synergy addiction treatment centers and how the addiction treatment process works. Some of the most commonly asked questions are:

1. How Can I Pay for Addiction Treatment?

Cost of addiction treatment varies, depending on length and type of recovery program needed to fully address a specific addiction. In most cases, a client’s health insurance will pay for most, if not all, of treatment costs. To learn more about paying for addiction treatment, please call our admissions office advisor.

2. What Do Synergy Recovery Services Staff Members Actually Do?

Synergy addiction treatment centers offer evidence-based and holistic therapies to help clients discover roots of their addiction and resolve issues contributing to their addiction. Our therapists also employ cognitive behavioral therapy techniques to teach clients how to undo negative thinking patterns that have become habitual and destructive. Life skills counseling further supports a client’s ability to cope with stressful situations that often lead to relapse.

3. What Makes Synergy Recovery Different From Other Addiction Treatment Centers?

We offer comprehensive outpatient treatment under one roof, guided by experienced addiction specialists. Our addiction treatment programs include a combination of counseling and prescription medications. Most other addiction treatment centers offer only counseling or medication, but not both. In addition our clients receive discreet treatment in a caring, spa-like environment.

Our clients are treated with dignity and respect, unlike other centers or methadone clinics where patients are hurriedly given medication and nothing more. At Synergy Recovery Services, we deliberately remove the stigma from being a recovering addict by listening to our clients’ concerns and fears when everyone else has abandoned them.

4. Can You Cure My Substance Abuse Disorder?

Addiction is a chronic disease comparable to diabetes, hypertension or autoimmune diseases that require adherence to particular lifestyle choices. Substance abuse, like many medical diseases, is completely manageable for recovering addicts who are given the skills and support provided by Synergy addiction treatment centers. In addition to psychotherapeutic interventions and holistic activities designed to nourish the mind, body and spirit, we also incorporate medications into programs that help clients withdraw successfully from drugs or alcohol.

5. Will You Help Me Through Withdrawal Symptoms?

For opioid detoxification and tapering purposes, clients may be given buprenorphine (brand name Suboxone, Zubsolv or Bunavail), a popular medication for treatment of opioid withdrawal — such as heroin or painkillers. In addition to buprenorphine there are several other detoxification methods available at Synergy Recovery including our holistic detox with intravenous NAD, the “Bridge” nerve stimulating device and a set of non-addictive medications to treat specific withdrawal symptoms.

For relapse prevention in alcohol and opioid addicts, we use injectable, sustained released Naltrexone (brand name Vivitrol) to block stimulation of opioid receptors in the brain, suppressing cravings and preventing relapse.

6. Does Anyone Have to Know I Am Receiving Addiction Treatment?

No. Treatment is strictly confidential. No one needs to know unless you choose to tell them or include them in your recovery program.

7. I’ve Been in Recovery Before and Relapsed. Can You Still Help Me?

We will do all we can to help you defeat your addiction by providing therapy, counseling, medications and ongoing support. However, no addiction rehab center can guarantee they will stop you from ever relapsing. Whether or not you relapse depends on many factors influencing your lifestyle choices, genetics and mental health. Cravings and relapse should be considered an important part of the recovery process and dealt with accordingly should they arise.
