Integrative Substance Abuse Treatment
We offer a comprehensive and intensive approach to drug abuse treatment that can include a combination of

We frequently meet with families in crisis. If you are trying to help a loved one with an addiction problem, we can meet and consult with you first, to make sure you help in the most effective and appropriate way. Click here for family intervention information.
Suboxone treatment for opioid addiction
For those with addiction to opiate drugs or pain medications, we are experts in the use of buprenorphine substitution therapy, also known under the brand names Suboxone and Subutex, for addiction treatment, pain management or both.
Medical management of alcoholism or benzodiazepine addiction
Often pharmacologic assistance is helpful to maintain abstinence during and after alcohol or benzodiazepine detoxification. We tailor treatment to each individual, based on the latest methods and research. Naltrexone, baclofen, disulfiram, topiramate and other medications are each useful for certain situations. We are familiar with the Ashton Method. Medical treatment and psychotherapy are both typically part of our team-based treatment of these conditions.
Professional Substance Abuse Evaluations
Substance Abuse Evaluation is often mandated by the California Bar, the Medical Board of California, the Board of Registered Nursing, the Emergency Medical Services Authority, the Federal Aviation Administrations, hospital medical staff review committees, and other agencies. We perform professionally-mandated assessments utilizing a team of medical doctors board-certified in Addiction Medicine, psychotherapists specializing in substance abuse evaluation, and other professionals as needed. Our evaluation services are comprehensive, fair and timely. Our expertise can help guide you through the process.
