Research has shown that combining strategies from the fields of psychiatry and addiction treatment can lower the relapse rate and fosters long-term abstinence. This is why at Multicultural Care Centers we are committed to providing evidence-based treatment for mental illness and substance use disorders that are truly integrated, community-based, individualized, and family-centered. All behavioral health and addictions needs are addresses in one setting, with a team of experts including psychiatrists, social workers, and licensed alcohol and drug counselors to ensure the best possible outcomes. Psychotherapeutic medications, such as antidepressants, anti-psychotic medications and anti-anxiety drugs, are often prescribed as part of a co-occurring disorders treatment program. Anti-addiction medications may also be prescribed to minimize cravings and withdrawal symptoms.
