Addiction treatment that is efficient, firm, fair, thorough, and highly educational

So what do we call it? Although abuse, addiction, and dependency have specific meanings in the medical field, for practical purposes, they will simply be referred to as “problematic substance use”.

At Compass, we treat the whole person. Our super friendly staff and Program Director/Senior Clinician, Dr. Ronald Bibb, have extensive experience treating people with addiction issues. We offer medication-assisted treatments for problematic use disorders involving opioids, alcohol, nicotine, and other substances with abuse potential (e.g. sedatives/hypnotics/anxiolytics in the form of benzodiazepines and “Z” drugs/sleeping pills). We have specific services as outlined below and are a referral source for inpatient treatment, mutual support groups (12-step, others), residential treatment, psychiatric issues, group living, and infectious diseases such as hepatitis B & C, and HIV.

“Addiction is a disease that manifests itself through behavior, rather than a character flaw. It can be defined as compulsive, “out of control” drug use despite negative consequences (see the 5 “C’s” of Addiction). An addictive drug is one which is both rewarding and reinforcing. This reinforcement and the associated lifestyle “required” to maintain a steady supply of the drug(s) are deemed to have assumed control over the behavioral inventory of the ‘user’”.
Once substance use (or dependency) has progressed to the point of abuse (or addiction), it has become the predominant coping response to meeting life’s challenges. Consequently, individuals with a substance use disorder cannot stop using because they lack the skills needed to cope with these challenges. The key to initiating and sustaining abstinence – that is, preventing relapse – is to develop a range of skills to cope with anticipated and potentially unforeseen challenges. As people accumulate successful recovery experiences, their confidence (or self-efficacy) in solving life’s problems without substances increases, thereby making it increasingly more likely that they will choose to avoid or be able to cope with “high-risk” situations.”
“Recovery is a journey of healing and transformation that requires patience and respect for a process that is often not linear. It calls for the cultivation of hope and empowerment. And it warrants acknowledgment that it is the journey that is in fact the recovery.”
“Rehabilitation involves rebuilding an enslaved person… and those people experiencing a drug problem are not to be placed in a separate class of citizen.”
