If you or a loved one are struggling with addiction, the recovery process may sound intimidating or unattainable. We recognize addiction for the chronic medical illness that it is, for the difficulties addiction can cause in your life, and we’re dedicated to treating all aspects of this disease through a comprehensive set of addiction services at one convenient location. We specialize in treating addiction to opioids, including prescribed opioids and illicit opioids like fentanyl and heroin, alcohol, and other substances.

Since other mental health conditions (anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder among others) frequently occur alongside substance use disorders, Nebraska Medicine addiction specialists focus on treating the whole person. Our goal is to help you regain your mental health, achieve your recovery goals and restore your life to maximum functional capacity. We believe that people can, and do, recover.

What to expect

Our multidisciplinary addiction medicine specialists will work together to develop a plan that best fits your needs. Your team will include board-certified addiction psychiatrists, physician assistants, licensed therapists, nurses and care staff with experience in psychiatric and addiction assessment and treatment.

Your treatment plan will include:

  • Medication for substance abuse disorders or mental health conditions
  • Individual therapy
  • Group therapy 
  • An intensive outpatient program (IOP) focused on treating addiction and psychiatric disorders

When you first meet with your doctor, medication may be recommended. A change in medications you are currently taking may also be suggested. The risks and benefits will be discussed with you, and you’ll make all medication decisions together with your care team.
