Opioid and stimulant use are on the rise, especially since the start of COVID-19. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, as of last June, 13% of Americans reported starting or increasing substance use as a way of coping with stress or emotions related to the pandemic. The demand for mental health services is at an all-time high.
“As a proven leader in treating substance use disorders — alcohol, drug, and specifically, opioid addiction — Rogers is meeting the need in our communities,” says Sean LeNoue, MD, psychiatrist and associate medical director, Regional Division.
Dr. LeNoue shares five reasons why Rogers’ mental health and addiction recovery care is unique:
1. Evidence-based treatment
It’s the foundation of all we do. We use tried and tested practices and are firmly rooted in cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, and motivational enhancement therapy. These are the cornerstones of our addiction treatment. Patients and their loved ones can have confidence because we have proven outcomes.
2. Multidisciplinary team
Patients have a behavioral specialist, licensed therapist, nursing staff, psychiatrist, and a psychologist who ensure the team is delivering Rogers’ high-quality, gold standard treatment. Everyone on the team is experienced and committed to helping our patients on the road to recovery.
3. Compassionate care
While we have a consistent model of care, our teams adjust to the specific needs of the patient. We are patient and family centered, and we recognize addiction impacts people in communities in a variety of different ways. Treatment includes individual therapy, group therapy, family therapy, components of 12 step facilitation, medication management, and care coordination with a patient’s other medical providers. What makes Rogers different is that we don’t shy away from treating the person holistically and thinking about the different facets of who they are.
4. Treatment of co-occurring disorders
We know addiction issues don’t exist in silos, and we understand and value the importance of treating mental health issues concurrently. It’s where the science meets the heart. While Rogers has standardized protocols, we recognize we are treating individual people with unique needs. The treatment team uses our evidence-based model to dig in and help people better understand themselves and how mental health, addiction, and other factors may have affected them or are currently impacting their lives. By treating issues simultaneously, we stand a better chance at reducing the patient’s risk to continue to use substances.
5. Continuum of care
Rogers offers multiple levels of care because we know that when a patient continues the recommended levels of treatment, they have better success. From the most acute inpatient detox level of care, moving into a longer term and a highly supportive residential level of care, and then branching out to partial hospitalization or intensive outpatient care across the country, it is one consistent approach at Rogers, and a patient will have the same quality of care no matter where they go.
“We understand people don’t always know how or where to begin,” says Dr. LeNoue. “We work with patients to empower them and help them find things that are meaningful so they can move forward,” he says.
