CMG operates a number of nationally recognized and accredited methadone treatment centers dedicated to helping these individuals and their families regain control of their lives. Addiction is recognized as a chronic disease by the World Health Organization, the American Medical Association, the National Institute of Drug Addiction, the Center for Substance Abuse Treatment and many others. As such, addiction has been clinically proven to be managed with appropriate medication and counseling. Our comprehensive treatment programs begin with a detailed psychological assessment and initial treatment plan at induction. Our highly skilled staff then guides patients through a medically supervised stabilization period that integrates individual, group and family counseling along with state of the art medication treatments such as methadone and Suboxone, followed by continuing outpatient care throughout the medical maintenance phase. When the treatment plan is followed, and the medications are taken as directed, this treatment philosophy is proven to suppress symptoms of opiate withdrawal, decrease cravings for opiates, reduce illicit opiate use, block the effects of other opiates, and assist patients in staying committed to treatment and a lifestyle of recovery. We take great pride in treating our patients with dignity and respect in each phase of their treatment experience.
Methadone, as an opiate, is a central nervous system depressant and is not a cure for opiate addiction. It is a pharmacological tool which suppresses withdrawal symptoms, lessens the cravings for opiates and coupled with counseling, facilitates those interpersonal interactions involved in strengthening motivations, changing lifestyles and breaking the cycle of life patterns and stress reactions underlying relapse. Methadone is a long acting, synthetic drug first used for the treatment of drug addiction in the United States in the 1960’s. It has a 40-year history of demonstrated success in the treatment of opiate addiction. When used in proper doses in maintenance treatment, methadone does not create euphoria, sedation or an analgesic effect. Doses must be individually determined by the medical staff. Methadone maintenance is a long-term treatment for opiate addictions of all types. There is no specific length of time in a medicated assisted program that is best for everyone. Since methadone programs are voluntary, the length of time spent in treatment depends greatly on the patient. The longer you stay in treatment, the greater your chances for success. Initially, the patient must visit the clinic regularly and receive his/her medication, yet over time the successful patient earns privileges. These can include fewer clinic visits and eligibility for take home medications as allowed by your state regulations. This allows many patients to lead normal, productive lives, working and caring for their families and enjoying an active social life; all on an outpatient basis so your life is minimally disrupted.

Seeking out Help for Drug Addiction
Seeking out help for drug addiction
n/aFriday, November 16, 2007
Some of us spend our entire lives chasing an elusive feel-good sensation, whether it comes from drinking, smoking, taking drugs, spending too fast and freely, or overeating.
Itâ€™s human nature to want the things that give us pleasure, but what starts out as fun can turn into an ugly spiral into addiction.
â€œBeing able to recognize troubling signs early on can be extremely valuable,â€ said Kelowna-Lake Country MLA Al Horning.
â€œHelp is available. The professional staff at Interior Health can tell you what help is available and where to get it. You donâ€™t have to hit rock bottom before you can get help; in fact, when it comes to addiction, the earlier you talk to someone, the better.â€
Some 600,000 Canadians are addicted to alcohol and another 200,000 are addicted to drugs. Those numbers donâ€™t even begin to show the true extent of the problem, but it is a reason enough to support National Addiction Awareness Week, the national campaign to raise awareness about addictions.
â€œWe see students looking for something to calm their nerves at exam time,â€ said Joan Campbell, director for Okanagan mental health and addictions services.
â€œWe see stressed out professionals, and we see parents under pressure to make ends meet, raise a family, and live up to responsibilities.
â€œTeachers, lawyers, doctors, students, homemakers, athletes, young and old, rich and poor, it makes no difference who you are or where you live. Anyone can become dependent.â€
At times we all look for an escape from problems at home or work, but Campbell said turning to alcohol and other drugs isnâ€™t the answer.
â€œAlcohol dependency is by far the most common addiction, but certainly not the only one,â€ said Campbell.
â€œThat means we have to be constantly alert to any potential problem, and be able to recognize troubling signs.â€
Can you spot trouble? Ask yourself these questions:
Do you need a few drinks before going out, or do you sometimes drink more than you intended?
Do you hide your alcohol use from family and friends?
Are you pregnant and still smoking, drinking or taking drugs?
Do you take drugs or drink and drive?
Do you have problems related to eating or sleeping?
Do you sometimes forget what happened while you were drunk or high?
Addiction is so consuming it can fracture relationships with family and friends, jeopardize our jobs, and harm our mental and physical health.
