Addiction Treatment Q & A

What is addiction treatment?

Addiction treatment involves medically supervised services to help you safely detox from drug or alcohol use. The goals of treatment are to help overcome an addiction to prescription, illegal, or recreational substances and support your long-term recovery efforts.

Wellspring Clinic offers an addiction recovery program for people of all ages. Dr. Arene provides several therapies on an outpatient basis, and the staff maintains an upbeat atmosphere throughout your treatment to greatly improve your recovery outcomes and prevent relapse. 

When should I consider getting addiction treatment?

You can benefit from the addiction recovery program available at Wellspring Clinic if you misuse or abuse alcohol or drugs and aren’t able to quit on your own.

Dr. Arene can help you achieve recovery from many types of drugs, including opiates. Opiates are often part of a pain management plan for chronic pain conditions, and individuals who use them can become addicted to the drugs in an attempt to find pain relief.

Potential warning signs that you might need addiction treatment include:

  • Legal problems
  • Relationship conflicts
  • Reckless or impulsive behaviors
  • Difficulties keeping up with responsibilities

Many people try to quit using drugs or alcohol on their own but find it hard to manage intense cravings, nausea, shaking, and other withdrawal symptoms.

What is involved in addiction treatment?

Successful recovery from addiction typically involves a combination of psychological therapy and medications. Wellspring Clinic provides an addiction recovery program personalized to your needs. 

Dr. Arene can refer you to a skilled therapist to address the emotional and mental issues that contribute to or result from substance use. She can also supervise and manage your use of medications like:


Suboxone is a sublingual film that goes under your tongue. The prescription medication helps you overcome an opioid addiction by binding to opioid receptors in your brain to reduce cravings for the drug and blocking the euphoric effects of opioids.


Sublocade works similarly to Suboxone to reduce cravings for opioids but is available as an extended-release injection. After you receive an injection, the liquid turns into a solid gel that consistently releases controlled amounts of medications for a month.

During follow-up visits, Dr. Arene continues to monitor the effectiveness of your treatment and provides wellness resources to restore your health and vitality.
