Opioid Treatment Program
There are multiple options available for the treatment of Opioid addiction. New York CHI is one of the forefathers of Methadone Maintenance treatment. CHI has specializes in medication assisted treatment (MAT), through the use of Methadone, and in some cases; Suboxone.
Methadone binds to opiate receptors in the brain, thereby preventing the withdrawal symptoms from opiates/opioids such as Heroin and is used as a maintenance therapy. Methadone Maintenance is usually long-term for most patients. but the length of time in treatment depends on patient.
Patients stabilized on methadone or Buprenorphine hold jobs, can avoid crime and violence, and can reduce their chances of getting HIV or Hepatitis. Some people will reduce their dose gradually to the point of being completely drug-free where as others may decide that staying on Methadone indefinitely is their best option for their recovery.
Whatever you decide, Carnegie Hill Institute is there to help guide you through your new life of abstinence!
Chemical Dependency Outpatient (CDOP)
The outpatient options is not usually meant to be the starting point of treatment and is commonly referred to as aftercare. Our CDOP program is for people who are seeking treatment for their drug abuse or drug addiction and who's extent of substance abuse does not require an in-patient care facility.
The main difference between outpatient treatment (OP) and intensive outpatient treatment (IOP) lies in the amount of hours the patient spends at the facility. How often you will attend the program at CHI will depend on whether or not you are mandated to attend and based on the severity of your chemical dependency.
Most of the time an outpatient program is designed for someone who has previously completed an inpatient stay and is now looking to maintain their abstinence or for those beginning to see how their current behaviors could put the life they want for themselves in jeopardy. Our CDOP will aid those who wish to continue to grow in their life of recovery.
