Prescription Drugs Heroin/Opioid Addiction Treatment 

Specialty opioid treatment for young adults and youth

As most of you know, the current epidemic of opioid addiction ( both prescription pain medications and heroin) in adolescents and young adults is an exploding problem with devastating consequences for these young people and their families. The tragedy of overdose afflicts every community in the country, and Maryland has been among the hardest hit. Drug overdose has now exceeded motor vehicle crashes as a cause of death. Unfortunately, the treatment world has been slow to respond, often using adult-style approaches that don’t take into account the special needs of young people, or older approaches for youth that don’t take into account the special needs of opioid addiction. Maryland Treatment Centers has developed specialty opioid addiction treatment programming for youth and young adults that is developmentally- and age-specific, targeting their unique needs. Some of these special features include:

  • Focus on youth-friendly engagement, positive youth culture, and peer support
  • Focus on supervision for enhancing medication adherence
  • Focus on transitions to independence
  • Focus on involvement of parents or other family members as key collaborators in monitoring progress and promoting recovery
  • Psychiatric evaluation and treatment of co-occurring disorders for those in need

The Mountain Manor clinical research group led by Dr. Marc Fishman, our Medical Director, has published extensively on youth opioid treatment, including the first report of the use of extended release naltrexone for opioid addiction in youth. Our Youth Opioid Treatment Programs achieved major national recognition by winning an iAward for innovation in behavioral health care from the State Associations of Addiction Services (SAAS) and the National Treatment Improvement Center (NiaTx). The youth opioid programs also received a SAMHSA Science to Service Award for office based opioid treatment in recognition of its innovation and outcomes. Inpatient/residential treatment including crisis stabilization and detoxification is available at:

  • Mountain Manor Treatment Center at Baltimore
  • Mountain Manor Treatment Center at Emmitsburg
  • Avery Road Treatment Center, Rockville

Longer term, extended residential treatment (2-6 months) is available at:

Outpatient continuing care is available with specialty opioid programming for young adults at:

  • The Youth Opioid Program at Mountain Manor at Baltimore (ages 15-18)
  • The Young Adult Opioid Program at Mountain Manor at Baltimore (ages 19-24)

Alcoholism Treatment

More than half of Americans aged 12 and older have reported being current drinkers of alcohol. In 2013, there were 136.9 million current alcohol users aged 12 or older, with 22.9 of those classified as binge drinkers and 6.3% as heavy drinkers. About 17.3 million of these (6.6%) met criteria for an alcohol use disorder in the past year. Excessive alcohol use, including underage drinking and binge drinking, can increase a person’s risk of developing serious health problems which include liver damage, brain damage, hypertension (high blood pressure), heart disease, and fetal damage in pregnant woman. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), alcohol cause approximately 88,000 deaths a year. Many Americans begin drinking at an early age. In fact, about 25% of eighth graders and 64% of twelfth graders used alcohol in the past year. (Information provided by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration). Drinking is common in many cultures and the effects can very widely from person to person. Therefore, sometimes it is difficult to determine whether someone is social drinking or problem drinking. However, there are some signs to help determine if you or someone you know has a drinking problem. Here are some signs:

  • Do you lie to others or hide your drinking habits?
  • Do you have friends or family members who are concerned about your drinking?
  • Do you feel guilty or ashamed about your drinking?
  • Have you “blacked out” or forgotten what you did while you were drinking?
  • Do you feel the need to drink in order to relax or feel better?
  • Do you regularly drink more than you intended to drink?
  • Is drinking causing problems in your life and your relationships?

Marijuana & K2 Addiction Treatment

Effective Programs for Marijuana Addiction

Marijuana (Cannabis) is the most used illicit drug in the nation. The short-term effects of marijuana include problems with memory and learning, distorted perception, difficulty in thinking and problem-solving and loss of coordination. According to the Substance Abuse and Mental health Services Administration (SAMHSA), among young people, heavy cannabis use is often associated with cognitive problems and an increased risk of mental illness. The 2013 National Survey of Drug Use and Health Data reported that 7.1% of adolescents between the ages of 12 to 17 reported using marijuana.

New Research-Based Marijuana Treatment Program for Adolescents

Do you know an adolescent who has a problem with cannabis/marijuana? Mountain Manor is pleased to announce exciting new treatment for adolescents with problematic marijuana use. As part of a study in collaboration with Dartmouth University at our Mountain Manor Baltimore program, we will begin offering a unique research-based approach to marijuana use disorders based on contingency management and working memory training. Contingency management (or motivational incentives) is a treatment that offers rewards for results. In this study all participants will be given monetary rewards for negative urine drug tests. Parents will also be given incentives for participating and learning a method for rewarding positive behaviors at home. Additionally, half of the participants will be randomly assigned to do training with a computer program that strengthens working memory, a cognitive function that has been implicated in substance use disorders. Adolescents (ages 13-17) who enroll with a parent (or other guardian) for treatment for excessive marijuana/cannabis use at Mountain Manor are eligible.

Synthetic Cannabinoids – “K2” “Spice”

Synthetic cannabinoids are commonly known as “synthetic marijuana,” “K2,” or “Spice.” They are often sold in legal retail outlets at “herbal incense” or “potpourri” and are most popular among young people. To mask their intended purposes and avoid Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulatory oversight, synthetic drugs are labeled “not for human consumption.” In 2012, 11.3% of high school seniors reported using synthetic marijuana in the past year. Synthetic cannabinoids are extremely dangerous and abusers who have been taken to the poison control centers report symptoms that include rapid heartbeat, vomiting, agitation, confusion, and hallucinations. Synthetic cannabinoids can also raise blood pressure and cause reduced blood supply to the heart and in a few cases, it has been associated with heart attacks (National Institute on Drug Abuse).

Cocaine Addiction Treatment

Cocaine is a powerful stimulant drug that is a nervous system stimulant. Cocaine can be snorted while in powder form, injected into the veins after dissolving in water, or smoked. It is also used to produce crack, which is smoked and produces a brief but intense high. Effects experienced in early stages of cocaine use can include euphoria in combination with feelings of heightened confidence and mental awareness and increased energy. Prolonged use of cocaine can result in various adverse physiological effects involving the respiratory, cardiovascular, and central nervous systems. Cocaine use may also result in overdose and death. Chronic cocaine use can lead to visits to hospital emergency room visits prompted by chest pains and palpitations, neurological problems including seizures and delirium and psychiatric complains ranging from altered mental states to suicidal ideation (2013 National Survey on Drug Use and Health). Cocaine is extremely addictive and dangerous, causing negative effects on the user’s mind and body. If you or anyone you know is addicted to cocaine and would like help, Mountain Manor Treatment Centers offers residential and outpatient programs that can assist the individual in need.

Medication Assisted Treatment

 

Effective Recovery Programs at Mountain Manor

Opioids, Alcohol, Cocaine, Marijuana, Tobacco At Mountain Manor, we have over four decades of experience. Throughout that time period, we have recognized that some individuals who suffer from addiction can actually benefit from medication assisted treatment. Our board certified addiction specialists and psychiatrists can determine what type of treatment is right for you! Medications, combined with therapy, can add a powerful tool for recovery from addiction. Psychosocial treatments – counseling, therapy, facilitation of 12-step participation, and others – are essential tools for getting well from addiction and substance use disorders. But there are increasing numbers of good medication options that can reduce cravings and help prevent relapse, for many of the substances that lead to addiction and substance use disorders. The availability of medications for opioids is fairly well known. But for some reason fewer than 1 out of 3 opioid addiction patients gets treated with medications. Mountain Manor Treatment Centers offer medication assisted treatment for opioid addiction at many convenient sites throughout Maryland. We provide treatment utilizing buprenorphine (suboxone) or extended release naltrexone (vivitrol) in a coordinated effort with individual and group counseling under the supervision of Board certified physicians who are certified as addiction medicine specialists. There are also several effective medications for alcohol use disorders. Modern addiction science teaches us that everyone with alcohol use disorders should get the opportunity to have the benefit of these medications. But it doesn’t always happen. Mountain Manor Treatment Centers clinicians offer medication assisted treatment for those individuals with alcohol addiction in need of this support. All too often in the addiction treatment world we forget about addressing tobacco/nicotine which kills more people than all the other substances combined. Tobacco cessation medications have been proven to more than double a person’s chances of quitting compared to counseling alone without medications. And did you know that there are several medications that can help people overcome problems with other substances – including cocaine and marijuana and others? New research is showing that several common medications well-established for other purposes also turn out to have relapse prevention and anti-craving effectiveness. And while these medications for cocaine and marijuana may not be as strong as those for opioids, alcohol or tobacco, they add additional tools to the toolchest and can increase patients’ chances for success. Why not take advantage of every opportunity to enhance recovery? Our Mountain Manor certified addiction medicine physician specialists have expertise in these medication assisted therapy options and other of the latest scientific techniques that assist in achieving and in maintaining recovery.

Relapse Prevention for Opioid Addictions

Medications, combined with therapy, can add an essential tool for recovery from opioid addiction.

Counseling, therapy, facilitation of 12-step participation, and others – are essential tools for getting well from addiction and substance use disorders. But the powerful biology of opioids (both heroin and non-medical use of prescription pain medications) and the brain mechanisms of opioid addiction mean that counseling alone is not enough for most people. The availability of medications for opioids is now fairly well known. But did you know that the effectiveness of those medications has been proven as the standard of care for opioid addiction? This means that patients who are not getting continuing treatment with one of the proven maintenance medications (buprenorphine, extended release naltrexone , or methadone), are not getting the most effective treatment option, and are not maximizing their chances of long term recovery. Mountain Manor Treatment Centers offers treatment for opioid addiction at many convenient sites throughout Maryland. We provide treatment with buprenorphine (suboxone) or extended release naltrexone (vivitrol), under the supervision of specialist addiction medicine certified physicians. And our professional staff provide group and individual counseling and therapy as an essential treatment component. This includes inpatient detoxification and initiation of relapse prevention medications at one of our inpatient programs:

  • Mountain Manor Emmitsburg
  • Mountain Manor Baltimore
  • Avery Road Treatment Center
  • Shoemaker Center

This also includes continuation of relapse prevention medications at one of our programs:

  • Mountain Manor Baltimore
  • Mountain Manor Highlandtown (Eastern Ave, Baltimore)
  • Mountain Manor Westminster
  • Mountain Manor Frederick
  • Avery Road Treatment Center
  • Journeys for Women, Journeys for Men (Rockville)

At Mountain Manor, we do medication treatment the right way. We understand that medications are not sufficient by themselves. We also recognize that the potential for diversion of some medications requires guidance and caution. Unlike some other treatment programs we are very careful to monitor medications and treatment progress, giving patients the structure to help them manage responsibly.

Dual Diagnosis/Mental Health & Addiction

Integrated Dual Disorder Treatment

Is it drugs or anxiety? Is it alcohol or depression? Is it substances or an anger problem? Could it be both? Psychiatric problems and substance use problems often go together. Having a mental health disorder greatly increases the chances of having a substance disorder and vice versa. In fact, having both kinds of problems—“dual diagnosis” or co-occurring disorders—is the rule not the exception. The question is not so much which came first the chicken or the egg, but rather what to do about them both. And modern research shows us that treating both at the same time, in an integrated clinical approach is the most beneficial for the patient. Mountain Manor Treatment Centers uses an evidence-based, research proven approach to co-occurring problems called Integrated Dual Disorder Treatment (IDDT). Some of the features of IDDT include:

  • Treatment of both substance use and psychiatric disorders by a single treatment team expert in both
  • Not waiting for sobriety to treat mental illness, and not waiting for resolution of psychiatric symptoms to treat addiction
  • Utilization of treatments (including medications and psychotherapy) that have effectiveness for both substance use and psychiatric disorders
  • Using treatment strategies appropriately matched to each patient’s individual stage of change

If the problems go together, the treatment should go together too. Holistic, integrated treatment that takes into account both sets of problems with one-stop-shopping is more likely to succeed. Our co-occurring therapists and specialist addiction psychiatrists have expertise in the interaction of psychiatric and substance use disorders and the treatment of both. Many individuals have had multiple episodes of treatment in both the substance use disorder system and the psychiatric system, have received a long list of diagnoses and treatments, including many medications. Many patients tell us they are frustrated that “everyone tells me something different…I’ve tried everything….and nothing works…” How can you tell what the right approach is? Our co-occurring therapists and addiction psychiatrists can help you sort it out. We won’t offer you any unrealistic magic overnight fixes, but we will offer you a careful evaluation process, an expert diagnosis and a thoughtful treatment plan. Integrated treatment makes sense!
