  • Chronic Pain Program

    Pain medication addiction treatment begins with medically managed detoxification designed to effectively treat withdrawal symptoms and protect from breakthrough pain. Traditional chemical dependency treatment is then supplemented by additional issue focused groups and techniques designed to create an alternative pain management treatment strategy to replace the use of narcotic analgesics. Alternative pain management methods are introduced while in chemical dependency treatment under the direction of the medical director.

Many men there have group meetings where they pray and empower one another to stay clean Sometimes there is dysfunction. Men do not like it when they get their phones taken away for "being up after bedtime" and then have to write a 500 word essay bout it!! If you want to get right with God and feel like you have a family of supporters then this place is for you. There are so,e rules but everyone respects them and there is lodging so that you may live there in exchange for working on the ranch.

I am very angry, sad and disappointed. After weeks of talking with staff at Hemit valley recovery center, I was told I had an interview scheduled for Sunday, May 15, 2016 and this woiuld be the last step for admission. The women assured me they had contacted my insurance and qouted me, the out of pocket cost and the amount my insurance will cover. However, after talking with another woman on the phone from detox, she reported, \"you don\'t take enough drugs for your insurnance to cover detox, I will call your insurance tomorrow and see if you qualify\". It seems to me, the woman from detox cared more about getting paid by my insurance then helping someone that reached out for help. So I would recommend finding another treatment center who cares about the person, more than reinbursement from the insurance company. Sincerely PJ
