Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) in LA & Southern California
Detoxification from alcohol or addictive substances may cause chemical imbalances that result in physical withdrawal and psychological cravings. Whiteside Manor Center takes a whole-person approach to recovery, using counseling, behavioral therapies and FDA-approved medication-assisted treatment to achieve lasting abstinence.
Begin Your Recovery With Safe, Controlled MAT Therapy
Whiteside Manor Center recognizes the many subtle and not-so-subtle ways addiction entices your body and entangles your mind. Our comprehensive approach to detoxification and recovery addresses physical withdrawal symptoms as well as the yearnings in your mind and spirit. For many Day One residents, this means the use of FDA-approved medications to alleviate these symptoms while you overcome your chemical dependency, learn life skills, participate in behavioral therapies and lay the groundwork for a meaningful, productive and sober life.
Think of addiction as a chronic condition requiring lifelong management. When you become dependent on alcohol or drugs, changes occur in your body. Stopping the supply of an addictive substance does not halt the effects of these changes. You may continue to feel physical and psychological cravings for alcohol, opiates and other drugs long after you enter detox and begin your journey to sobriety.
