Prescription Drug Addiction Treatment
Prescription Drug Addiction Treatment From the Comfort and Privacy of Home
At ALYST Health, we offer the first and only at-home prescription drug addiction treatment program accredited by the Joint Commission. Our treatment model is designed for individuals ready for help but whose lifestyle, responsibilities, or routine aren’t compatible with conventional addiction treatment centers.
Prescription drug addiction can be one of the most challenging addictions to treat because individuals may rationalize abuse as legally acceptable or medically required. However, when prescription drug use begins to negatively impact an individual’s overall quality of life or other day-to-day responsibilities, ALYST Health is here to help.
ALYST’s fully at-home prescription drug addiction recovery model empowers individuals with everything they need to heal from the comfort and privacy of their own home without disrupting daily responsibilities or their routine. Our comprehensive approach includes:
One of the most significant challenges when dealing with prescription drug abuse is getting an individual to realize the adverse effects the addiction has on their lives and the lives of others. Our Certified Intervention Professionals show you how to stage an intervention while helping family members and loved ones break through to anyone in the grip of prescription addiction.
Our program offers participants the flexibility to overcome a prescription drug addiction from the comfort and privacy of their own homes. With around-the-clock support and guidance from a dedicated sober companion (we call them Certified Recovery Agents), participants gain the skills and tools to integrate sobriety into their everyday activities.
Overcoming a prescription addiction and achieving sustained sobriety requires a team of professionals all working toward the same goals. Our addiction case managers are licensed social workers specializing in addiction and serving as a confidential, single point of contact at every stage of the recovery process.
Our prescription drug addiction treatment model offers the option to deliver all of the above as a complete concierge solution or as standalone services.
