Our Integrated Treatment Approach
INSynergy offers the best Drug and Alcohol Treatment Program in St. Louis, MO.
We use an integrated approach with a system of medical professionals, psychiatrists, psychologists, therapists, and advocates to treat the whole person, not only the addiction.
Many times co-occuring conditions are overlooked such as depression, bipolar depression, anxiety, ADHD, and other psychological issues.
INSynergy requires that these Co-Occuring conditions are identified and effectively treated. Treating the whole person decreases risk of relapse.
Your Addiction Treatment Options
INSynergy uses two of the safest, cutting edge medications to help reduce the discomfort involved in ending your opiate addiction - Subutex and Suboxone.
Subutex and Suboxone are FDA approved medications used to treat opiate dependence. Both medicines contain the active ingredient, buprenorphine hydrochloride. This drug which works to reduce the symptoms of opiate dependence.
With these new medications, detox from heroin or pain pills doesn't have to be a miserable experience.
For Alcohol detox, we carefully instruct the INSynergy client and supporting family or friends to closely monitor for response to medications that are essential during the alcohol withdrawal period. We also educate for signs of seizure and side effects from the medications that may include sedation, irregular breathing, or confusion. Our medical staff will determine if a higher level of care is needed during the evaluation but most of our clients can be safely detoxed from opiates or alcohol as an outpatient, without long disruptions from professional, academic, or personal life.
INSynergy is an approved provider of Vivitrol (Naltrexone), the first and only once-monthly injectable medication to treat opiate and alcohol dependence.
Vivitrol is a non-narcotic, non-addictive medicine used in combination with counseling to treat opiate and alcohol dependence and prevent a relapse to opioid dependence, after opioid detoxification.
Psychiatric and Psychological Treatment
Once the INSynergy client is detoxed and stabilized, individual psychotherapy is started with one of our experienced psychologists, counselors, or therapists. Core conflictual relationship themes are addressed and other issues that might be contributing to emotional pain.
Group Therapy and Lectures
Most of the work is done in group therapy. Many find this non-12 step approach very enlightening and the most popular component of the program. Here INSynergy clients can learn how Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) can effectively change the way one thinks. Biology of Addiction lectures are also very popular topics discussed.
Family Group Therapy
Oftentimes, families of the struggling addict are the most effected psychologically. Once a week family group therapy are offered as part of the comprehensive treatment approach. This allows the whole family system to heal together.
Marriage and Couple's Counseling
Couple's counseling with our PhD therapist trained in marriage and couple's counseling is another very popular component of our Program. Along with group, family, and individual therapy, our approach encompasses all levels of treatment.
