Adult Substance Use Programs

Detox/Extended Detox Services:

We offer a medically assisted withdrawal program in which our patients can safely discontinue substance use and be weaned off the substance without experiencing severe withdrawal symptoms.


Medication Assisted Treatment Inpatient Induction:

Hospital-Based Induction with the use of Buprenorphine to reduce withdrawal, reduce cravings and stop non-prescription opioid use. The benefit of starting Buprenorphine in the hospital setting is to set the tone regarding structure and monitoring of prolonged therapy for opioid abuse. Inpatient induction provides continual 24 hour monitoring for withdrawal and any potential side-effects of medication or drug interaction. It ensures accurate dosing and provides a safe, stable environment for induction with linkage to aftercare maintenance. Candidates for this program will undergo screen for clinical appropriateness.


At University Behavioral Center we provide treatment for substance use related issues in an individualized manner. Our treatment programs are based on a “systems” approach that includes evidence-based and research informed practices. Our Adult Recovery Solutions Program is connected to the acute psychiatric center allowing for active treatment of both substance use disorders and psychiatric disorders.


Individuals will receive a wide range of services targeting the presenting symptoms and addressing the core issues that are continual barriers to recovery.
