Designed specifically for health care workers experiencing challenges related to substance use and concurrent issues relating to mood and or anxiety.
We know that having a mood/anxiety disorder increases a person’s chances of struggling with unhealthy substance use. The connections between mental health and substance use can be complex, and both issues deserve and require evidence-based therapies to support recovery and wellness. The Addiction Medicine Program – Mood, Anxiety, Concurrent offers comprehensive medical and clinical care for individuals dealing with substance use issues and the symptoms of mood/anxiety disorders.
Homewood Health has a long history as a leader in treating eating disorders, mental health, trauma, addiction and co-occurring disorders. We can advise on a treatment program that suits you best.
AMP-MAC Program patients are assessed at intake and discharge using several tools, including the Patient Health Questionnaire (PHQ-9) and General Anxiety Disorder 7-item (GAD-7). Based on the data from April 2022 to September 22, 69% of patients had moderate to severe anxiety at the program’s start, and only 21% had moderate to severe anxiety at the end. Similarly, 85% of patients had moderate to severe depression at the program’s start, and 36% had moderate to severe depression at the end.
We also monitor patient satisfaction regularly to assist with quality control and ensure patients receive the highest quality care. Based on the recent data collected, 96% of patients stated that the program had met their needs, they would recommend the program, and they would come back. Additionally, the overall rating of the program was 96%.
Homewood has extensive experience in treating complex and co-occurring disorders. Often, individuals may suffer from multiple conditions, which can complicate recovery if not identified and addressed. Our clinical approach is designed to help build an understanding of how different issues may affect the individual and employ evidence-based treatment that provides the foundation, knowledge and tools necessary to address these conditions and help build the skills required to sustain long-term recovery.
At Homewood Health we recognize that family and/or friends are an important part of a patient’s social support system, and family/friend involvement is determined based on the patient’s individual needs.
If you feel that someone’s mental health issue or substance use is impacting their ability to function well, there are ways to initiate the conversation and show that you care.
