Kolmac Outpatient Recovery Centers Announces New Annapolis Addiction Treatment Center

Wayne Sensor, CEO at Kolmac

The offerings at our new Annapolis location will allow men and women to get the comprehensive care they need to recover from addiction without having to leave their everyday lives to receive inpatient care.

BURTONSVILLE, Md. (PRWEB) December 11, 2019
Kolmac Outpatient Recovery Centers is proud to announce that its Annapolis addiction treatment center will be the latest addition to its growing network of intensive outpatient (IOP) treatment locations. As of December 9th, Kolmac will provide comprehensive addiction treatment services at this new location.
Since 1973, Kolmac has been providing a flexible and effective IOP program. This treatment was developed by industry expert and Kolmac Chief Innovation Officer George Kolodner MD. For the last four decades, our program has helped more than 30,000 men and women achieve sobriety.
A look at Kolmac’s new Annapolis location
Much like Kolmac’s new Frederick center, this clinic location will begin by offering an evening IOP program, which is the most popular offering at Kolmac. Over time, the Annapolis location will also offer a daytime IOP program for patients who are seeking treatment outside of evening hours.
In addition, the Annapolis addiction treatment site will launch a continuing care program. The location will also offer family support resources and develop continuing care groups to meet the needs of specific populations over time.
Licensed and experienced addiction treatment professionals will staff the new Annapolis location. The center will also give patients access to an onsite psychiatrist or psychiatric nurse practitioner who can treat coexisting mental health issues during addiction treatment.
According to Kolmac CEO Wayne Sensor, “Our goal has always been to provide highly effective addiction treatment that works with our patients’ busy schedules. The offerings at our new Annapolis location will allow men and women to get the comprehensive care they need to recover from addiction without having to leave their everyday lives to receive inpatient care.”
Helping even more patients with Kolmac’s new Annapolis addiction treatment center
Kolmac selected Annapolis as the newest center location because the team realized it could help the men and women in the area who are seeking treatment for addiction. “Opioid addiction is a growing concern in Annapolis and around the United States, but addiction to alcohol and other substances is also prevalent. Kolmac is expanding its reach to help even more people take their lives back from these substances,” Sensor explains.

Heroin’s Grip Documentary Changes Attitudes about Addiction

Shannon mourns the loss of her 17 year old daughter.

“The film is changing attitudes about addiction. It changed mine; I used to say ‘It’s not my problem.'”

FREDERICK, Md. (PRWEB) December 04, 2019
ConjoStudios, LLC announced today that the powerful documentary film, Heroin’s Grip – Stories from the front lines of the opioid crisis, recently released on Prime Video, is changing attitudes about addiction. One viewer wrote: “This movie will change your life. You will never look at addiction the same. Everyone should see this!”
“It changed my attitude,” says Maryland filmmaker and director of Heroin’s Grip, Conrad Weaver, “I used to say ‘It’s not my problem.’ But after working on the film, that has changed, and my goal is now to help people understand that the opioid crisis is ‘our problem’ and we all have a responsibility to help solve it.”
Weaver hopes that releasing it on Prime Video will help reach a wider audience who may not completely understand the impact addiction has on individuals, families, and communities. “The film shows the complete story. People who have watched it say they now have a much better understanding of the problem and their responsibility to their friends and neighbors caught in addiction’s grip.”
The highly anticipated national release of the award-winning film caps a year of screenings in select theaters and at special events, including a recent screening on Capitol Hill for members of Congress hosted by Maryland Congressmen, Jamie Raskin and David Trone. “Heroin’s Grip presents the unvarnished truth, humanizing this epidemic through the real stories of our family, friends, and neighbors.” – Rep. David Trone.
A number of nationally-recognized leaders in the addiction and recovery community have endorsed the film, including John Shinholser, President of the McShinn Foundation who says the film is, “The best current film about opiate addiction and the family/community impact.”
Ryan Hampton, national advocate & author of “American Fix: Inside the Opioid Addiction Crisis—and How to End It” says, “Heroin’s Grip does a great job of helping the viewer better understand addiction and its consequences, and it shows that recovery is possible when a community comes together to reduce stigma and provide resources for those caught in addiction’s grip.”
Heroin’s Grip is available to rent or buy on Prime Video in the United States and in the United Kingdom and will soon be available world-wide on other platforms. Weaver plans on donating a portion of the profits the film generates to organizations helping people get into recovery programs.

Sunshine Coast, a Best-in-Class Treatment Program for Addiction, Trauma & PTSD in British Columbia, Announces Forthcoming rTMS Treatment Option

Sunshine Coast Health Centre is a best-in-class addiction, trauma, and PTSD treatment program in Powell River, British Columbia, Canada. The Centre is announcing plans for rTMS (Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation) options.
Press Release – updated: Nov 26, 2019 01:00 PST

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, November 26, 2019 (Newswire.com) – ​Sunshine Coast Health Centre, a leading addiction, trauma, and treatment program located in Powell River, British Columbia, Canada, at https://www.sunshinecoasthealthcentre.ca/, is proud to announce plans for rTMS (Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation) in 2020. rTMS, also known as intermittent theta burst stimulation (iTBS), has demonstrated efficacy for the treatment of major depressive disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), schizophrenia with auditory hallucinations, impulsive decision making, and gambling addiction. A study found rTMS significantly improved working memory. Currently, experts are examining the efficacy of rTMS therapy for treating concurrent depression and alcohol use disorder.
“Our methodology focuses on best-in-class treatment options so we have a full toolbox of techniques to create an individualized, custom plan for the treatment of addiction, trauma and/or PTSD,” explained Casey Jordan, Chief Marketing Officer. “In some cases, rTMS therapy may be a strong option. We’re excited to announce plans for rTMS in 2020.”
It should be noted that the Centre offers a “non 12 step” methodology, and interested persons can learn more about it at https://www.sunshinecoasthealthcentre.ca/non-12-step/. The foundation of the non 12 step program methodology for treating drug addiction, alcoholism, substance abuse, trauma, and PTSD is in Viktor Frankl’s proposition that the fundamental motivation in humans is the will to meaning. In other words, individuals need to make sense of their lives and pursue a personally meaningful existence. In line with Frankl’s theory, we see addiction as a result of an individual’s persistently frustrated attempts to live a personally meaningful life. Clients seeking this methodology for drug rehab, alcohol treatment, trauma, and PTSD come to the Centre (located in Powell River, British Columbia) not only from nearby cities such as Vancouver, Richmond, or Victoria, but also Calgary, Edmonton and even as far away as Toronto.
ABOUT SUNSHINE COAST HEALTH CENTRE
Sunshine Coast Health Centre is a 47-bed drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility exclusively designed for men, officially opened on March 15, 2004. The Centre has a philosophy of care that goes beyond just addiction to include personal transformation based on three key therapeutic principles: interpersonal relatedness, self-definition (autonomy and competence), and intrinsic motivation. The Centre offers both drug rehabilitation and alcohol treatment near Vancouver, British Columbia, but also serves patients across Canada, particularly British Columbia and Alberta and cities such as Calgary, Edmonton and Red Deer. Sunshine Coast Health Centre uses a form of drug rehabilitation based on the research of Viktor Frankl and methodology of Paul T.P. Wong, namely “Meaning ­Centered Therapy.” The Centre hopes to launch a new segment of its programming exclusively for women later this fall.
