Medication management and alternative therapies may be integrated into each patient’s individualized treatment plan, based on clinical needs.
Managing Chronic Pain
Chronic pain can easily deter a patient from focusing on their recovery from drug and alcohol addiction. Hanley treats chronic pain holistically and individually to manage and reduce a patient’s pain without the use of addictive drugs that may actually exacerbate pain over time. Treatment is conducted with a multi-disciplinary approach that includes:
- Massage therapy
- Physical therapy
- Aqua therapy
- Wellness activities
Alternate therapies are based on individual needs.
Non-addicting pain medications may also be prescribed for pain control. The medical staff oversees each patient’s pain management program to ensure the patient is physically comfortable and able to go about his or her daily activities without assistance. Long term recovery includes skill building and accessible therapies to reduce or eliminate debilitating pain. The ultimate goal is to enable the patient to embrace and maintain a healthy lifestyle free of addictive medications.
SPECT Brain Image Scanning
Hanley Center was the first treatment center on the East Coast to implement revolutionary Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography Technology – SPECT. By measuring blood flow to the brain, a SPECT scan can detect evidence of brain trauma, ADHD, and brain malfunctions that can contribute to addiction. Each scan is invaluable in psycho-education as Hanley has the ability to demonstrate in real time the neuro-biological effects of the disease of addiction on the brain and the healing power of sobriety.
