DAY TREATMENT

Tellurian's Day Treatment Program is specifically designed for patients who have a supportive living environment but require more intensive treatment than traditional outpatient treatment programs offer.

Tellurian’s Day Treatment Program provides patients with an opportunity to practice recovery skills within the community, utilizing peer and staff support to maintain sobriety.  Morning, afternoon and evening group sessions are available to accommodate our patients' work or home schedules.  Individual counseling sessions are facilitated by State Certified, dually licensed,  Masters-degreed therapists specializing in substance use and co-occurring mental health disorders. In addition to the daily group sessions, patients of Tellurian’s Day Treatment Program also receive weekly one-on-one individual therapy.  Family counseling is available and recommended to help loved ones understand the nature of addiction and mental illness. Participants learn essential recovery tools that can enhance family functioning while supporting the patient's continued  sobriety and recovery.

The Day Treatment Program is licensed under DHS 75.12 as a CSAS Day Treatment Service. It is an approved provider for the Dane County intoxicated driver program and assists participants in the successful completion of recommended or court-ordered driver safety plans.

TREATMENT WITH SUBOXONE

The Tellurian medical and counseling staff has developed a multi-faceted continuum of care that provides the tools and support needed for a sober and productive lifestyle free of opiate addiction.

Opioid dependence is a challenging and complicated condition, but it can be treated. Suboxone® is the first prescription medication available for use in the treatment of opioid dependence under the Drug Addition Treatment Act of 2000. Suboxone® was developed to decrease the pain and discomfort of withdrawal and aid in decreasing opiate cravings, and block the effects of drugs such as heroin, morphine, Vicodin, Oxycodone, and Oxycontin.

Suboxone® is not a "miracle cure." Treatment takes hard work! You may experience times of sadness, anxiety, and loneliness, but you will also experience times of joy and laughter. Each day becomes an adventure as you travel down the road to recovery.

The Tellurian Suboxone® Treatment Program encompasses four distinct phases.

STABILIZATION PHASE

The staff physician and therapist review medical records and psychosocial history during the medical exam and intake process to determine if Suboxone® is appropriate for the patient. If Suboxone® is prescribed, dosages are adjusted as needed and intensive group and individual therapy begins.

EARLY RECOVERY PHASE

Early recovery focuses on continued weekly group and individual counseling. Medication checks occur monthly, and random drug screens are conducted.

MAINTENANCE PHASE

During maintenance, monthly individual counseling and group therapy sessions play a major role in recovery as patients continue to rebuild their life free of drugs.

MANAGED SUBOXONE DETOXIFICATION

Under physician supervision, Suboxone® dosages are slowly decreased to minimize any withdrawal symptoms. The goal of phase IV is to discontinue Suboxone® altogether. Patients are encouraged to continue counseling.
