NHBHC offers culturally and linguistic appropriate services based upon the need of each individual.
New Hope Behavioral Health Center (NHBHC) is an outpatient behavioral healthcare clinic that specializes in partnering with health care professionals to manage the very difficult and delicate task of withdrawing their opiate dependent patients.
This is challenging, but rewarding work, and it enables you to distinguish between legitimate pain and induced pain associated with Withdrawal Syndrome.
Generally, patients with legitimate pain are prescribed pain medication. Often times, managing these patients long term can be taxing and risky when the provider begins to feel as though the patient is drug-seeking. Ethically, it can be difficult to refuse to continue care…..but what option do providers have?
We at NEW HOPE are the option.
Research indicates that every year nearly six million Americans use prescription opioid pain medication, and in some communities, abuse of prescription pain medication has overtaken cocaine and marijuana use.
The 2002 National Household Survey on Drug Abuse (NHSDA) showed that approximately 9% of the U.S. Population has used pain relievers illegally in their lifetime. An estimated 4.6 million Americans used prescription type pain medications non-medically for the first time in 1998. This represents a significant increase since the 1980's, when there were generally fewer than 500,000 new users per year.
Today, approximately 75% of our patients suffer from a dependency on pain medications, whereas in years past dependencies to heroin were the most common. We recognize that all patients who are physically dependent on and psychologically addicted to prescription pain medication are a result of a many imbalances that require expert medical treatment in a safe, humane and effective environment, encapsulated in confidentiality.
