Medical Chemical Dependency Treatment
Serving Patients in Oregon, Washington, Alaska, California, Nevada, and Idaho
Schick Shadel offers safe and effective medical chemical dependency treatment
for drug and alcohol addiction.
We offer the following drug and alcohol addiction treatment programs:
Our extensive research and experience has found that counter conditioning
(retraining the memory against the pleasurable aspects of using alcohol
or drugs) produces excellent recovery results, so it forms the foundation
of our drug and alcohol rehabilitation and treatment programs.
Schick Shadel Hospital Treatment Programs
Schick’s #1 success rate for treating alcoholism* is the basis for
the Schick Shadel treatment of other drug dependencies, including marijuana,
opiates (oxy, oxycodone, OxyContin, Vicodin, including other prescription
painkillers), crystal methamphetamine, and heroin.
Treatment consists of days alternating between medical counter conditioning
treatment under medical supervision, and relaxing, minimal-sedation rehabilitation
interviews and relaxation therapy.
Some of the treatments we offer include:
Medical counter conditioning (Emetic or Faradic)
Emetic treatment is used for alcohol counter conditioning, unless not advisable due to
individual patient medical limitations.
Faradic counter conditioning is administered for patients who are not appropriate for chemical counter
conditioning, as mentioned above.
- Professional counseling and education
- Rehabilitation interviews (minimal sedation)
- Relaxation therapy
- Comprehensive pharmacy and laboratory services
The rehabilitation interviews, or minimal sedation sessions, are the most
popular aspect of the treatment program. When alumni return for regular
support groups or celebrations, they often recall these relaxed state
sessions, and even want to repeat them.
The purpose of the minimal sedation session is to monitor the level of
conditioning occurring in treatment, and to identify potential counseling
issues. Also of great benefit is the use of patient-directed “positive
affirmations” during these sessions. Incorporating these affirmations
can potentially help patients attain their personal goals for recovery.
