We understand how difficult it can be when a loved one struggles with drug and alcohol abuse or addiction. At Fairbanks, we are committed to the enrichment of personal choices, strengths and values of our patients. Individualized treatment needs are met though different levels of care. Our expert staff will assist you and your family with recommending the appropriate treatment level.

Detoxification (Detox)
Detox is designed for individuals likely to experience serious withdrawal complications requiring medical intervention. Patients are medically stabilized and detoxified under 24-hour medical management. A comprehensive evaluation is conducted during this stage of treatment to determine the appropriate level of ongoing care needed.

Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT)
To assist clients in their recovery journey, Fairbanks offers medication assisted treatment. Patients who require ongoing medications such as naltrexone (Vivitrol) or Buprenorphine (Suboxone) can be assessed for a prescription through the Fairbanks Medical Office.

Fairbanks follows best practices for addiction medicine. Research shows that medication is most effective when combined with counseling. For this reason, patients must be enrolled in some form of addiction counseling, though it doesn’t have to be at Fairbanks, to use our MAT program. Medicare and most forms of commercial insurance are accepted. Appointments may be scheduled by calling the Fairbanks Access Center at 317–572-9396.

Mission: Recovery
Fairbanks has a joint partnership with the Indiana National Guard and Community Health Network to provide treatment to service members who have substance use disorders. Mission: Recovery provides services for Indiana National Guard soldiers and airmen who are seeking help for problems with alcohol and other drugs.

Origins: Women’s Trauma Program
This treatment curriculum addresses trauma in female patients that’s co-occurring with addiction disorders and is part of Fairbanks’ whole continuum of care. Evidence-based practices including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Seeking Safety and yoga are utilized. A men’s specialized trauma curriculum is under development.

Rehabilitation (Rehab)
Rehab is a structured inpatient environment designed to meet the specific needs of adults in early recovery or relapse. Medical observation continues during rehab, but patients do not require withdrawal intervention. The involvement in 12-step recovery groups such as Alcoholics Anonymous (AA), Narcotics Anonymous (NA) or Cocaine Anonymous (CA) is emphasized.

Residential Treatment
Residential treatment is designed for individuals who no longer require medical observation, but still require a structured environment in order to abstain from using drugs and alcohol. Involvement in 12-step recovery groups continue during residential treatment as well.

Supporting your loved one while in treatment is an important part of our program. Fairbanks incorporates visitation with our family programs, which provides loved ones with information about addiction and recovery. Programming involves group therapy, education and support meetings facilitated by our expert staff.
