What We Treat
Science based prescription drug medication withdrawal, drug and alcohol treatment, holistic mental health treatment and more.
Medication withdrawal tapering combined with other therapies at Alternative to Meds Center, effectively relieves withdrawal. In some cases, the person in withdrawal will be temporarily switched to another lesser medication to ease the withdrawal that will then be addressed after the more difficult drug has been eliminated.
Many centers increase antidepressants while offering minimal counseling or attention to diet. Our antidepressant withdrawal program specializes in tapering antidepressant use at a rate that the person can endure. There are symptoms that result in people get medicated. Yet the origin of many of those symptoms may be medical, dietary, situational, psychological, neurotoxicity, and a spectrum of other reasons. We commit to discover and correct the real reasons for imbalance.
Antipsychotic WithdrawalThe program we have for antipsychotic withdrawal is the only one of its kind in the world. This often complicated path often includes genetic considerations. The first line approach is to stabilize the neurochemistry with natural substances. In many instances, deep detoxification in an effort to alleviate accumulated environmental neurotoxins is a large component. The genetics of the person may not be able to endure and eliminate these poisons that we are all immersed in. The goal in these cases is to assist the individual in having the least amount of side-effect producing medication while still enjoying the highest quality of life and functioning. In the case of antipsychotics, being completely medication free during the duration of stay is on a case by case basis.
Benzodiazepine WithdrawalPersons with anxiety that are drawn to alcohol or benzodiazepines may have underpinnings of a neurotoxic burden that can overstimulate the nervous system. Our methods of Benzodiazepine Withdrawal help include careful tapering protocols, cleansing of neurotoxins that have poisoned brain functioning, counseling and many holistic therapies. Since many of our residents were formerly damaged in the name of medical help, we encourage you to watch the benzodiazepine success videos or read our success stories to earn our trust. We successfully manage protracted withdrawal and have many 20+ year benzodiazepine testimonials. Alternative to Meds Center is not a rapid benzodiazepine withdrawal facility and we are highly opposed to this approach because of the many, many damages to person’s lives that we have seen this produce.
Opiate, Alcohol, Recreational Drugs Withdrawal
We address the physical, emotional and spiritual facets of addiction. This helps to create the proper stage for lasting recovery. A key component of what we do is address the biochemical-physical cravings that often haunt the addict in life until they relapse. There actually are reasons why one person craves stimulants and another craves sedatives. Until the addictive biochemistry is handled, recovery is often short lived despite the best intentions.
Symptoms & Side Effects We Treat
Part of the reason why we are capable of remedying such an array of ailments is the level of care, effort, and personalization we employ in our treatment programs. We delve into the underlying causes of symptoms with orthomolecular medicine, lab testing, investigative processes, based in scientific methods.
Addictive Biochemistry Correction
Our center addresses drug and alcohol addictions with a strong focus on the addictive biochemistry that drives cravings. Addictive biochemistry is what drives one person towards opiates and benzodiazepines, and another person toward stimulants. Persons with anxiety may be drawn to alcohol or benzodiazepines, having anxiety with underpinnings of a neurotoxic burden that overstimulates the nervous system. Before we can correct addictive biochemistry, we will have to discover the specific underlying causes.
