About Positive Pathways’ Benefits

You don’t have to overcome addiction alone. Prolonged substance abuse causes changes in the brain that lead to dependence and make maintaining sobriety without help nearly impossible. However, programs like Positive Pathways can help. Opioid addiction is more than a physical dependence on drugs. Even after a patient’s physical dependence has subsided, there are powerful psychological and social factors that heighten the risk of relapse:

  • People, places, and things 
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Past trauma/PTSD
  • Insomnia
  • Financial/legal stress
  • Relationships

We offer a variety of services as part of our drug and alcohol abuse treatment programs. This allows our staff to design a unique treatment plan that takes into account your history of use, medical history, and mental health.

Here’s what some of our clients have had to say about Positive Pathways

About Positive Pathways’ Services

Every individual’s path into addiction is different, so their recovery will look different as well. So what is it about Positive Pathways that makes us effective? Some of the services that might be part of your recovery include:

  • Trauma work – Trauma and addiction are often linked because harmful experiences can have lasting negative effects on mental and physical health. Sometimes, individuals will turn to substance abuse to cope. Substance abuse can also lead to trauma. Our professionals can help you find healthy coping mechanisms to deal with the consequences of trauma
  • EMDR – Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy can help you heal from traumatic events
  • Medication-assisted treatment programs – Medications like Suboxone and Vivitrol can also help manage cravings
  • Treatment for co-occurring disorders – The majority of our clients come to us with both a substance abuse disorder and a psychiatric diagnosis. Our staff is uniquely qualified to treat this kind of dual diagnosis
