Prescription drug abuse and opiate addiction impact millions of Americans each year. You and/or your loved one are not alone in fighting this debilitating disease. Colonial Management Group, LP (CMG) understands the difficulties of the social stigma associated with being addicted and we believe an independent and constructive lifestyle is attainable. Our priority is to stabilize each patient, individually, by providing medically monitored treatment combined with psychosocial rehabilitation services in our safe and clinically supportive environment. This allows the patient to make positive changes in their lives in an atmosphere of dignity and respect in a therapeutic and appropriate time frame for each individual.

CMG operates a number of nationally recognized and accredited methadone treatment centers dedicated to helping these individuals and their families regain control of their lives. Addiction is recognized as a chronic disease by the World Health Organization, the American Medical Association, the National Institute of Drug Addiction, the Center for Substance Abuse Treatment and many others. As such, addiction has been clinically proven to be managed with appropriate medication and counseling. Our comprehensive treatment programs begin with a detailed psychological assessment and initial treatment plan at induction. Our highly skilled staff then guides patients through a medically supervised stabilization period that integrates individual, group and family counseling along with state of the art medication treatments such as methadone and Suboxone, followed by continuing outpatient care throughout the medical maintenance phase. When the treatment plan is followed, and the medications are taken as directed, this treatment philosophy is proven to suppress symptoms of opiate withdrawal, decrease cravings for opiates, reduce illicit opiate use, block the effects of other opiates, and assist patients in staying committed to treatment and a lifestyle of recovery. We take great pride in treating our patients with dignity and respect in each phase of their treatment experience.

Methadone, as an opiate, is a central nervous system depressant and is not a cure for opiate addiction. It is a pharmacological tool which suppresses withdrawal symptoms, lessens the cravings for opiates and coupled with counseling, facilitates those interpersonal interactions involved in strengthening motivations, changing lifestyles and breaking the cycle of life patterns and stress reactions underlying relapse. Methadone is a long acting, synthetic drug first used for the treatment of drug addiction in the United States in the 1960’s. It has a 40-year history of demonstrated success in the treatment of opiate addiction. When used in proper doses in maintenance treatment, methadone does not create euphoria, sedation or an analgesic effect. Doses must be individually determined by the medical staff. Methadone maintenance is a long-term treatment for opiate addictions of all types. There is no specific length of time in a medicated assisted program that is best for everyone. Since methadone programs are voluntary, the length of time spent in treatment depends greatly on the patient. The longer you stay in treatment, the greater your chances for success. Initially, the patient must visit the clinic regularly and receive his/her medication, yet over time the successful patient earns privileges. These can include fewer clinic visits and eligibility for take home medications as allowed by your state regulations. This allows many patients to lead normal, productive lives, working and caring for their families and enjoying an active social life; all on an outpatient basis so your life is minimally disrupted.

Like any other disease, alcoholism or drug addiction requires professional treatment. It is a primary, progressive, and fatal disease. Without treatment it will get worse.

However, with professional treatment and abstinence, there is a one hundred percent chance of recovery.

What happens when people recover? They get healthier and learn to feel good about themselves. Relationships with family and friends improve. They can laugh and feel joy. All in all, life gets better—a whole lot better.

History

Aletheia House is a community-based organization that has been providing substance abuse treatment and prevention services to low-income individuals, and the communities in which they live, since 1972. It is one of Alabama’s largest providers of substance abuse treatment, substance abuse/HIV prevention, employment services and affordable housing.

The organization was founded by a group of dedicated volunteers to address the needs of teens who were living on the streets in Birmingham, Alabama. They selected the name Aletheia because it means “truth” or “ to be truthful with yourself.”

The agency’s current Executive Director, Chris Retan, was hired in 1978. The Chief Operating Officer, Gloria Howard, joined the organization in 1991.

Aletheia House has received national and regional recognition for its programs including the Maxwell Award of Excellence from the Fannie Mae Foundation, the John J. Gunther Award from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, the Certificate of Special Recognition from the Federal Housing Commissioner, and the Partnership Excellence Award from the Federal Home Loan Bank.
