Substance/Abuse Services

Often used to mask other diagnoses, substance abuse is a problem with the potential for serious consequences. RCBM's outpatient substance abuse treatment services are offered by seasoned professionals in a caring, confidential, and non-judgmental environment.

At the Rochester Center for Behavioral Medicine, we offer an innovative multidisciplinary treatment approach to recovery. Our program has been developed through years of experience working with addicted clients. In addition, we have utilized many exciting new discoveries in the field of neurobiology and we have dedicated clinicians to help not only with the medication management portion of treatment, but the essential therapy and support aspect as well.

Recent discoveries in the field of addiction science have expanded our understanding of addictions and their impact upon the human brain. We have combined our years of experience with cutting edge discoveries in neuroscience in order to provide highly effective treatment for our patients. Research has shown that the combination of medication and therapy has proven most efficacious in treating mental health conditions. This is the model that we utilize at RCBM. Substance Abuse & the Law Our advice to you: Take control of your addiction. Do not wait for the legal system to make treatment mandatory. Acknowledge responsibility and voluntarily seek treatment. Take your addiction seriously. It is a life-threatening problem but remember there is hope and we are here to help.
