Support Systems Homes, Inc™ recently added a unique inpatient protocol that practically eliminates the symptoms of opiate detox withdrawal. The innovative approach has been highly praised for its success at treating the severe and debilitating withdrawal symptoms of opiate detox.

The protocol makes drug rehabilitation more easy, effective and affordable for substance abusers and their families. And it is consistent with the company's efforts to provide caring, comprehensive and cost-effective rehabilitation for addicts and alcoholics.

"We are different from most buprenorphine clinics in that we deter our clients from maintenance use of buprenorphine derivatives and encourage a short detox period utilizing Subutex, which makes the symptoms of opiate withdrawal virtually nonexistent, followed by peer support, counseling and inpatient 30-day treatment to be followed by aftercare, including outpatient counseling," explained Susan Levy, Director of Admissions for Support Systems Homes.

A leader in the substance abuse industry, Support Systems Homes, provides a broad continuum of care for individuals seeking treatment for alcohol and drug dependency issues. "By offering many levels of treatment in our continuum of care-from drug and alcohol detox, Subutex opiate detox, residential rehabilitation, outpatient and day treatment to sober living all under the same roof-we can better help those seeking treatment from the critical care stage through transitional living and better enable them to successfully quit drugs and alcohol," stated Laurie Palomo, Clinical Director of the San Jose Residential Treatment Center for Support Systems Homes.

Support Systems Homes was founded in 1991 by Bob Norton and Andy Lujan, both of whom are in recovery. Both are dedicated to the process of recovery and have spent years actively involved in supporting California communities through outreach, education and involvement in 12 step programs.

"The company is run by people who have been where our clients are and who genuinely care about their recovery," Palomo said. "With our expert clinical staff, our Medical Director, Dr. Robert Daigle, Addictionologist and fellow of The American Society of Addiction Medicine and our caring team of counselors and nurses, we are able to both provide the best in clinical treatment for substance abuse and have the ability to empathize with clients and their families struggle with addiction."

Support Systems Homes focuses on helping clients achieve and maintain abstinence from mind-altering substances, learn new coping methods for living, and become more stable members of their families and community. The company accomplishes this through education, counseling, enhancing self-awareness, building self-esteem, and emphasizing 12-Step program principles and participation. It offers four primary levels of substance abuse treatment: drug and alcohol detoxification; residential treatment; outpatient and day treatment; as well as sober living and transitional housing.

"Clients are treated with dignity and respect in the recovery process, as the transformation from despair, hopelessness, and fear to a renewed vision of life unfolds," Levy said.
