Substance Use Disorder

Arise Health Clinic is accredited with the Joint Commission

Proudly accredited by The Joint Commission, we emphasize excellence in our Substance Use Disorder (SUD) treatment programs. Trust in our accredited services for compassionate and effective care tailored to support individuals on their path to recovery.

Assessment and Evaluation

Assessment and evaluation are the cornerstones of our SUD services. These processes help us gain a comprehensive view of your condition, history, and the factors contributing to your SUD. It allows us to develop a treatment plan tailored to your individual needs.

Individual and Group Therapy

we believe in the power of therapy as a key component in the journey to recovery from Substance Use Disorder (SUD). Our SUD services offer both individual and group therapy options, recognizing that each person's path to healing is unique. These therapy approaches provide a safe and supportive environment to address the emotional, psychological, and social aspects of SUD.

Medication-Assisted Treatment

we recognize that the journey to recovery from Substance Use Disorder (SUD) can be complex and challenging. Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) is one of the scientifically proven methods we offer to support individuals in their recovery. MAT combines medication with counseling and therapy, providing a holistic approach to managing and overcoming SUD.

Holistic Care

we understand that recovery from Substance Use Disorder (SUD) is more than just addressing the physical aspects of addiction. It encompasses the whole person, including their mental, emotional, and social well-being. Our approach to SUD treatment is holistic, focusing on the complete health and healing of every individual.

Understanding SUD


SUD Programs

We offer SUD programs that cater to a range of needs and preferences, offering various levels of care and support for individuals seeking treatment for Substance Use Disorder.

Partial Hospitalization Programs (PHP)

PHPs provide comprehensive treatment during the day but allow patients to return home in the evenings. They offer a balance of structured care and flexibility for individuals with a stable home environment.

Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP)

Outpatient programs are flexible and offer therapy and counseling on a less intensive basis. They are ideal for those with milder SUD or those who have completed more intensive treatment and are in need of ongoing support.

Outpatient Programs

IOPs offer a higher level of care than standard outpatient treatment without requiring residential stays. They involve multiple therapy sessions each week, providing comprehensive support while allowing patients to continue their daily routines.

12-Step Programs

These self-help groups, such as Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous (NA), follow a 12-step model to support recovery. They provide a sense of community, peer support, and structured principles for maintaining sobriety.

Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT)

MAT combines medication, such as methadone or buprenorphine, with counseling and therapy to address opioid addiction. It helps manage cravings and withdrawal symptoms.

Dual Diagnosis Programs

Dual diagnosis programs are designed for individuals with co-occurring mental health disorders and SUD. They provide integrated treatment to address both conditions simultaneously.


Definition and Characteristics:

Substance Use Disorder (SUD) is a complex and chronic condition that encompasses a range of problematic behaviors associated with the misuse of substances, such as drugs or alcohol. These behaviors can include a strong desire or craving to use the substance, difficulties in controlling or stopping its use, an increased tolerance to its effects, withdrawal symptoms when not using, and a neglect of other important life priorities. SUD is a serious medical condition that can lead to significant distress, impairment in various life domains, and, in some cases, severe health consequences.


Demographic Impact:

SUD does not discriminate based on age, gender, or background. It affects people from all walks of life. Understanding that anyone can be susceptible to SUD underscores the importance of awareness and prevention efforts.


Medical Model:

It is crucial to recognize that SUD is a medical condition, not a moral failing. This shift in perspective is essential for reducing stigma and promoting help-seeking behavior. Those struggling with SUD should be encouraged to seek professional assistance, just as one would for any other medical issue.


Treatment Approach:

Effective treatment for SUD typically involves a combination of approaches, including behavioral therapies, counseling, and, in some cases, medication. Behavioral therapies help individuals modify their attitudes and behaviors related to substance use. Counseling provides a supportive and therapeutic environment for individuals to explore the underlying causes of their SUD and develop coping strategies. Medications may be used to manage cravings, withdrawal symptoms, and the physical aspects of addiction.


Support and Awareness:

Understanding SUD is not only essential for those directly affected by it but also for society as a whole. Raising awareness about the nature of SUD, its potential consequences, and the availability of effective treatments is critical for prevention and recovery. Supporting individuals with SUD and their families in seeking help and navigating the path to recovery is a collective responsibility.
