The Alternative to Meds Center provides a serene and comfortable inpatient setting in which to recover after a course of prescription medication such as asenapine needs to be tapered.
With carefully tailored individual programming, the specific needs of each client can be addressed safely and with a minimum of discomfort.
With a well-trained staff of over forty professionals, doctors, nurses, practitioners, and counselors, the center takes a thorough and comprehensive approach to health recovery after medication.
An important facet of the program entails testing for and removing toxic accumulations of various environmental pollutants, chemicals, and other substances that are neurotoxic. The program seeks to normalize neurochemistry through holistic means such as flooding the body with nutrient-rich foods, proper supplementation, and many other methods. When this phase of the program is complete, clients will typically see improvements in sleep, energy level, mood, less depression, less anxiety, and other positive results. Beginning a taper when the improvements have already bet set in motion is much easier on the system and much more comfortable done in this way.
Many adjunct therapies are used in the programs as well, so that maximum client support is made available. Some of these include mind/body techniques like Qi Gong, yoga, counseling specific to disordered thinking, educational classes on healthy diet, high dose Vitamin C therapy, as well as other orthomolecular applications specific to this population.
