Addiction Medicine Services at Safe Harbor Behavioral Health of UPMC Hamot

Addiction is a chronic illness with biological, psychosocial, and spiritual factors.

Addiction Medicine Services at Safe Harbor provides outpatient and intensive outpatient treatment to teens and adults who have substance use disorders.

We understand that people seeking recovery might be facing many issues.

As part of our program, we also help people with:

  • Behavioral health needs.
  • Serious mental illness.
  • Emotional problems.
  • Trauma or abuse history.

Addressing these concerns in a compassionate and coordinated manner is vital to your recovery.

Addiction Treatment Designed to Meet Your Unique Needs

Recovery from addiction is a personal process of abstinence and change. Matching treatment services to your unique needs is critical to returning to a healthy lifestyle.

In the Addiction Medicine Services program, you will work with your therapist to design an individualized addiction treatment plan.

Your therapist will help you:

  • Recognize triggers.
  • Learn new coping skills.
  • Adjust to life in recovery.
  • Create a relapse prevention plan.
  • Repair relationships strained by substance use concerns.
  • Promote your new goals.
  • Define strategies for living a healthy lifestyle.

Our program uses evidenced-based therapy, as well as parts of the 12-step program to help the recovery process.

We also encourage loved ones to take part in planning and treatment. These supports are a helpful part of treatment and recovery.
