Marriage counseling can also help couples who plan to get married. Premarital counseling can help couples achieve a deeper understanding of each other and iron out differences before marriage. In other cases, couples seek marriage counseling to improve a troubled relationship.What to expect
Here is what to expect from marriage counseling. The goal depends on you. Most couples attend therapy to save their marriage, but no ethical counselor would allow an unhealthy relationship to continue. So, it depends on the couples to ultimately decide if they wish to move forward and improve their relationship or have it arrive in an amicable end.Benefits that can be achieved

Staying healthy and safe is more important now than ever. But in the middle of a pandemic, shelter-in-place orders, and social distancing, it’s been challenging for many people to visit their primary care doctors for minor health problems. As hospitals and emergency rooms continue to overflow with coronavirus (COVID-19) patients, a visit to either can be a scary thought.
Telehealth is the use of digital information and communication technologies, such as computers and mobile devices, to access health care services remotely and manage your health care. These may be technologies you use from home or that your doctor uses to improve or support health care services.Does telehealth protect my privacy?
Yes. Insurance plans and healthcare providers are subject to HIPAA (the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) rules, which establish national guidelines to ensure your personal health data won’t be disclosed without your knowledge. When you communicate with your doctor via phone or video, your privacy and medical record information is held to the same standards as regular in-person visits.
The concept of support groups, which are also sometimes called self-help groups and mutual support groups, involves peers discussing issues and offering emotional validation and self-care tips, with guidance from a leader who is not a professional doctor or therapist.How do support groups work?
Support groups are typically small. They meet on a regular basis, usually once or twice per week, to discuss issues that have come up in that time and review new thoughts on the concerns brought up from the previous meeting. It is important to note, however, that support groups are not a replacement for therapy. Working with a therapist and attending a support group at the same time, especially for mental health issues associated with addiction, is the best combination for long-term recovery.Why are support groups important?

Pain management may help you rest, heal, and return to your daily activities. Pain management can also help increase your appetite, sleep, and energy, and improve your mood and relationships.
Addiction and the recovery process are commonly marked by strong cravings to use even after successful completion of detox and treatment. These cravings, a normal occurrence for those struggling to get and stay clean, can interfere with treatment and increase the risk of relapse. Fortunately, certain medications have proven very successful in helping to stave off these cravings and promoting abstinence.Protocol for use of MAT

Once staff assesses your condition they will decide whether you are a good candidate for medication-assisted treatment. Per SAMHSA, you are a good candidate for MAT if you:
Medication alone is not enough to help a patient achieve and maintain abstinence in the long term.
Effective addiction treatment addresses the whole person and combines the use of:
Use of medications can help the patient to remain clean while the behavioral therapies address underlying issues related to substance abuse, help to promote a positive self-image, rectify negative thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, and teach and build healthy coping skills. This therapeutic combination is at the core of medication-assisted treatment.
We offer a vast array of outpatient behavioral health services for adults, including:
Taking medications alone is not sufficient to help patients be more clean and sober in the long term. For effective addiction support, treatment should address the whole person through the combination of the following:
Furthermore, the use of medications is an effective tool in helping patients remain clean, while behavioral therapy focuses on the treatment of any underlying issues that have affected substance abuse. Additionally, therapy promotes positivity and self-reliance; addresses negativity, including thoughts, emotions, and attitude; and builds and practices healthy coping mechanisms. The combination of therapy and medication lies at the core of medication-assisted treatment programs.
