Relief from alcoholism
In 2013, 16.6 million adults ages 18 and older had an alcohol use disorder, and about 1.3 million of them recieved treatment for their alcoholism at a specialized facility.
CleanSlate has created a program for treating alcoholism effectively that has helped patients find recovery. Our addiction specialists are experienced in using Vivitrol to help patients overcome their alcohol dependency.
Vivitrol is an effective medication for alcohol treatment for three reasons:
- It eliminates the “high” that comes with alcohol use and lessens cravings for alcohol.
- It guards against relapse.
- It lessens the overall amount of times that alcohol is consumed.
- Vivitrol is also beneficial for patients who are coming from a detox program. It helps you ease into your treatment in a way that minimizes discomfort after detox.
*Please note that CleanSlate does not provide detox treatment. We are happy to refer you to any of our partner detox centers if you’re looking for a detox program.
While in the CleanSlate program, patients engage with us in a variety of evidence-based psychological and social treatments, including counseling time with providers. Some patients may need additional services from a mental health provider or intensive counseling programs, or sometimes even inpatient care. The CleanSlate staff can help those patients find an appropriate counselor or counseling program in the community.
