Dr. Agresti has developed a State-of-the-Art detoxification and treatment program for effective substance abuse treatment. He has successfully treated addictions to both prescription and street drugs as well as alcohol in an outpatient setting. Treatment may include involvement in our Cognitive Restructuring Program, work with a sober coach, and psychotherapy. Cognitive Restructuring is based on principles very different from traditional 12 Step programs but patients who are involved or prefer the 12 Step Model will be encouraged to continue with meetings.
There are many different methods and places that “do” detoxification. It stopping the use of drugs and substances were easy, it would not matter where you go. There is no one-size-fits-all program. The essential component of our program is an individualized medical and psychological plan.
If your substance of abuse is one or more items, we deal with the total individual – not the drug! We work with the person to meet their goals for changing their personal habits while meeting their detoxification needs as well as dealing with withdrawal symptoms which may last as long as a month and a half. Inpatient programs will “detox” the individual but not deal with the long term withdrawal symptoms or teach you what you need to succeed in beating the drug/substance that is controlling you!
For supplemental support we have certified drug counselors and/or can refer you to an intensive outpatient program.
