Treatment Center for Drug Dependents

Drug Treatment Programs

Residential, Outpatient Extended Care



If you or your loved one is in need of alcohol rehab or drug rehab, we are glad you found UMEED CLINIC. We are here to assist you in finding the treatment program to best fit the needs of you or your loved one. UMEED Treatment Centers offer a personalized drug rehab experience, so while we outline our 'base' addiction treatment and drug rehabiliation programs, we do not present a 'one-size-fits-all' solution, because we are not a 'one-size-fits-all' treatment center. We offer a number of solutions, all of which can be tailored to fit specific needs and circumstances.

When an individual chooses UMEED CLINIC, our goal is to directly address the disease of alcoholism and/or drug addiction. Our approach involves professional addiction treatment such as cognitive-behavior therapy, family therapy, support groups, and other individual counseling services. It also includes other activities designed to strengthen the mind, body and spirit. Our experience has shown when traditional therapies are combined with specialized treatments, the result is an increase in individuals achieving and maintaining sobriety

Treatment approaches to Drug Addiction

Principles of Effective Treatment

Scientific research since the mid–1970s shows that treatment can help patients addicted to drugs stop using, avoid relapse, and successfully recover their lives. Based on this research, key principles have emerged that should form the basis of any effective treatment programs:

  • Addiction is a complex but treatable disease that affects brain function and behavior.
  • No single treatment is appropriate for everyone.
  • Treatment needs to be readily available.
  • Effective treatment attends to multiple needs of the individual, not just his or her drug abuse.
  • Remaining in treatment for an adequate period of time is critical.
  • Counseling—individual and/or group—and other behavioral therapies are the most commonly used forms of drug abuse treatment.
  • Medications are an important element of treatment for many patients, especially when combined with counseling and other behavioral therapies.
  • An individual's treatment and services plan must be assessed continually and modified as necessary to ensure that it meets his or her changing needs.
  • Many drug–addicted individuals also have other mental disorders.
  • Medically assisted detoxification is only the first stage of addiction treatment and by itself does little to change long–term drug abuse.
  • Treatment does not need to be voluntary to be effective.
  • Drug use during treatment must be monitored continuously, as lapses during treatment do occur.
  • Treatment programs should assess patients for the presence of HIV/AIDS, hepatitis B and C, tuberculosis, and other infectious diseases as well as provide targeted risk–reduction counseling to help patients modify or change behaviors that place them at risk of contracting or spreading infectious diseases.

Effective Treatment Approaches

Medication and behavioral therapy, especially when combined, are important elements of an overall therapeutic process that often begins with detoxification, followed by treatment and relapse prevention. Easing withdrawal symptoms can be important in the initiation of treatment; preventing relapse is necessary for maintaining its effects. And sometimes, as with other chronic conditions, episodes of relapse may require a return to prior treatment components. A continuum of care that includes a customized treatment regimen—addressing all aspects of an individual's life, including medical and mental health services—and follow–up options (e.g., community – or family-based recovery support systems) can be crucial to a person's success in achieving and maintaining a drug–free lifestyle.

  • Raising a glass to the holidays: Research finds extra alcohol sold, consumed on holidays
    Asking people about what they drink on holidays and other special occasions shows we drink around the equivalent of 12 million more bottles of wine a week than we previously thought in England. Previous surveys on alcohol consumption have not accounted for all the alcohol that is sold. This research appears to have found many of these 'missing units.'
  • New study challenges claims on aldehyde content of third generation e-cigarettes
    In January 2015 a report found that a third generation e-cigarette -- an e-cigarette with variable power settings -- set to the maximum power and long puff duration generated levels of formaldehyde that, if inhaled in this way throughout the day, would several times exceed formaldehyde levels that smokers get from cigarettes. A new study took a closer look at those findings in the context of real-world conditions. It concluded that 3rd generation e-cigarettes can indeed produce high levels of aldehydes -- but only under extreme conditions which human smokers can be expected to avoid because of the immediate unpleasant...
