Recovery from substance misuse needs hard work, like other behavioral health concerns. The need for substance abuse and addiction treatment is more critical than ever. Substance addiction deaths in the United States exceed 100,000 each year, according to the CDC. This information is heartbreaking.

Addiction can begin with the experimental use of recreational drugs in social situations, and drug use becomes more frequent for some people, particularly those who are younger. Addiction for others, particularly those addicted to opioids, begins with exposure to prescribed medications or taking them from a friend or loved one who has been prescribed them.

The risk and rate of addiction differ from one drug to the next. Some medicines, such as opioid pain relievers, are more dangerous and become addictive faster than others.

As a result, Wellness HealthCare Clinics psychiatric services support our clients through psychotherapy and medication management to steady progress toward recovery. Depending on the nature of the client’s substance abuse, we may prescribe Suboxone, Methadone, or Buprenorphine.

We seek to assist our customers in maintaining control of their lives by providing quality and professional mental health care and counseling. We realize how difficult it can be to let go of these kinds of chemicals based on our years of experience in this industry. Withdrawal can be challenging, especially if you do not have adequate support.

We believe that everyone has the opportunity to rise up and fight for their lives once more. If you feel the need to seek mental health services in DC, or if you know someone who does, please do not hesitate to contact us.

As a provider of psychotherapy in Washington, DC, we are always willing to assist.
