Holistic Mental Health and Addiction Treatment Center
We are a world-class licensed residential holistic behavioral mental health and addiction treatment center, providing our residents with outstanding compassionate care. We have 11 years of experience helping thousands of people overcome withdrawal from antidepressants, antipsychotics, benzodiazepines, alcohol, opiates, and prescription drug medications. The Alternative to Meds Center is a world authority on the subjects of biochemical correction of addiction and alternatives to psychiatric drugs. We address the physical, emotional and spiritual facets of addiction and mental health, creating the proper stage for lasting recovery and revived happiness.
Many facilities increase people’s antidepressants, offer minimal counseling and provide poor diets. Our program for antidepressant withdrawal specializes in tapering people from antidepressants at a rate that they can endure. There are reasons why people get medicated. Yet many of those reasons are medical, dietary, neurotoxicity, situational, psychological and a myriad of other reasons. We commit to discover and correct the real reasons for imbalance.
Our antipsychotic withdrawal program is the only one of its kind in the world. This is a complicated path that often includes genetic considerations. We aim at stabilizing the neurochemistry with natural substances. Often, deep detoxification to remove accumulated environmental neurotoxins is instrumental in this process. The goal in these cases is to assist the individual in having the least amount of side-effect producing medication while still enjoying the highest quality of life and functioning. Whether that is completely medication free during the duration of stay is on a case by case basis.
Persons with anxiety that are drawn to alcohol or benzodiazepines may have underpinnings of a neurotoxic burden that can overstimulate the nervous system. Our methods of Benzodiazepine Withdrawal help include careful tapering protocols, cleansing of neurotoxins that have poisoned brain functioning, counseling and many holistic therapies. Since many of our residents were formerly damaged in the name of medical help, we encourage you to watch the benzodiazepine success videos or read our success stories to earn our trust. We successfully manage protracted withdrawal and have many 20+ year benzodiazepine testimonials. Alternative to Meds Center is not a rapid benzodiazepine withdrawal facility and we are highly opposed to this approach because of the many, many damages to person’s lives that we have seen this produce.
Opiate, Alcohol, Recreational Drugs Withdrawal
We address the physical, emotional and spiritual facets of addiction. This helps to create the proper stage for lasting recovery. A key component of what we do is address the biochemical-physical cravings that often haunt the addict in life until they relapse. There actually are reasons why one person craves stimulants and another craves sedatives. Until the addictive biochemistry is handled, recovery is often short lived despite the best intentions.
Addictive Biochemistry Correction
Our center addresses drug and alcohol addictions with a strong focus on the addictive biochemistry that drives cravings. Addictive biochemistry is what drives one person towards opiates and benzodiazepines, and another person toward stimulants. Persons with anxiety may be drawn to alcohol or benzodiazepines, having anxiety with underpinnings of a neurotoxic burden that overstimulates the nervous system. Before we can correct addictive biochemistry, we will have to discover the specific underlying causes.
Alternative Mental Health Programs
Discovering the WHY a person is anxious, depressed, addicted, or otherwise mentally suffering is a deep undertaking. This could be medical, physical, psychosocial, spiritual, or a combination of multi-layered reasons. The range of medical and holistic treatments we provide includes Environmental Medicine, medical management, lab testing, biotransformation of toxic burden, targeted neurotransmitter repair, heavy metal chelation, cutting edge Microbiome science, organic diets with a nutritionally ketogenic cleanse, acupuncture, nebulized glutathione, colonic hydrotherapy, energy medicine, ionic footbaths, massage, and many other holistic therapies.
