Individualized Alcohol and Drug Rehab Programs

Our individualized approach to treatment improves quality of life (defined below by varying aspects of our patients). The chart below is actual data from our program that shows improvements made by our patients, the varying aspects we focus on, and the significant differences in treatment length. The data show the mean improvements in each category measured with the Addiction Severity Index (ASI) for all patients at 3 months and 6 months of treatment.

ASI data chart

A comprehensive approach?

Addiction medicine physicians and addiction psychiatrists all agreed that medical treatment of addiction requires a multi-method approach. (Becki, Liese, & Najavits, 2005)

Improved Status after treatment is more likely when clients have access to a range of mental health and medical services. (Marsh, D’Aunno, & Smith, 2009)

Medication Assisted?

Buprenorphine (Active compound in Suboxone) was statistically significantly superior to placebo in retaining patients in treatment. (Bell, 2012)

Programs which offer on-site medical services utilization rates are higher. (Friedman, Alexander, & D’Auuno, 1998)

Medication assisted treatment reduces the chance of overdose. (Bell, Fischer, & Levitz, 2002)

Medication decreases substance use or the intensity and duration of drug effects while psychotherapy focuses on the emotional problems that contribute to drug abuse. (Rounsaville & Carrol, 2003)

Why group therapy?

Group therapy addresses aspects of recovery related to physical and mental health, lifestyle choices, and family and professional issues. (Daley, Mercer, & Spots, 2003)

Why does MIA offer ongoing care, no maximum treatment time, and lifetime counseling?

The longer a patient remains in treatment directly correlates to reduction in drug use and improved social function. (Walker, 2009)

A longer period of treatment predicts better outcomes. (McKay & Weiss, 2001)
