Family Focused Addiction Center and Detox in the heart of Los Angeles

Hamlin Recovery Center’s physicians have received waivers for a license from the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) to help treat opioid withdrawal with a medication called buprenorphine (Suboxone). Buprenorphine is a partial opioid agonist. With low doses, it produces a sufficient agonist effect to enable opioid-dependent individuals to discontinue the use of opioids with minimal withdrawal symptoms. Buprenorphine interacts with the same receptors in the brain that are activated by heroin, prescription painkillers, and similar substances, yet it does not produce the euphoric high that is associated with these drugs. 

 

Thus, buprenorphine allows you to get through the day without experiencing extreme drug cravings or withdrawal symptoms.

When undergoing this form of treatment, patients are placed on a low dose of buprenorphine that is slowly decreased over a period of 7 to 10 days. Done under careful inpatient medical monitoring to ensure the safety of all who receive this type of service, an individual’s physical dependence on opioids is ultimately eradicated so that the therapeutic aspect of treatment can then be focused on without distracting withdrawal symptoms hindering the healing and recovery process.

We understand everybody doesn't want to make a switch to another drug, which is why we take measures to educate the entire family.

Family Roles in Treatment

As a family member of someone who is addicted to a substance, you understand first hand the troubles and hardships that come with the territory.  Most people feel addiction is a moral failing and dont fully understand the depth this disease.  at Hamlin Recovery, we understand the family aspect is one of the most important pieces to recovering from drug and alcohol addiction. 

A strong support system is the best relapse prevention tool addicts have in order to overcome.

When someone is trying to get off drugs and alcohol,  it is important to understand the depth of this disease.  It's important to understand the importance of building a strong support network.  When we are in our addiction and on the streets using, we often spend a lot of time with very unsavory individuals in order to accomplish our goal(acquiring drugs).  When we get sober , we have to completely change our friend network.  We have to stop talking to anybody we used with, anybody who helped us get drugs, and anybody who potentially is a barrier to recovering.
