Referring someone for detox and follow-up care is not a simple matter. Many people with substance abuse problems are not convinced that they need detox or to go to a residential treatment facility. There needs to be a plan set up with the family that not only includes where and how the person will go for treatment, but also a compelling presentation with comprehensive planning on the entire course of treatment.
The field of substance recovery is filled with treatment failures. People who either will not go for treatment in the beginning, or more commonly, people who do well during a couple of weeks in treatment only to quickly relapse upon return to an unplanned home environment. Our approach is to develop planning and strategy upon the initial contact in order to obtain the best results. Some people are simply not ready in the beginning. There needs to be a plan and presentation for success to even have a chance. Our approach also does not end at the referral.
After establishing a comfortable and trusting relationship with the person with need, we refer them for treatment followed by close supervision of the treatment interacting constantly with the doctors and treatment team. We never refer anyone for treatment without first having a long-term plan for their treatment.
With over 40 years working in the field, Dr. Halperin knows exactly what is needed for long term success and manages the entire case including family interactions, medical interactions, job, finances, legal issues and every other aspect of the person’s life. No-one should feel left out on a limb. There should be constant understanding and support.
We have assembled a team of experts in their respective field with whom Dr. Halperin has comfortably worked for years. There is no finer team around.
For those who cannot or will not go to any type of hospital or facility for help we provide comprehensive in-home, or other off-site location, treatment of all levels of care including medical detox by licensed physicians and nurses, follow up treatment, sober coaching, medication management and psychotherapy.
For those who need to travel we provide travel planning along with sober companions, security details, travel plans and scheduling.
We can also provide and manage anti-craving medication including Vivitrol, Naltrexone and Antabuse.
