Addiction Counseling in Sacramento

Addiction Treatment

Sequoia MD offers direct, individualized attention for those struggling with addiction.

We care for patients with all types of substance use disorders and focus in particular on patients struggling with opiates (heroin, fentanyl, oxycontin, Norco, etc), alcohol, and benzodiazepines (Xanax, Ativan, Valium, Klonopin).

Welcome to Sequoia MD, a Sacramento addiction counseling specialist, where we offer a comprehensive range of services, including medication-assisted therapy, individual counseling, and group sessions. Our program offers you a truly client-first experience through completely customized treatment plans that meet every client’s unique needs.

By joining our substance abuse treatment program in Sacramento, you can maintain your current living arrangements, which allows you to fulfill your responsibilities, such as taking care of children and meeting school requirements, all while prioritizing your long-term health and happiness.

Patients often find our program highly appealing as it enables them to balance their obligations while receiving the necessary support needed to find recovery. While our direct-care model is significantly more cost effective than traditional treatment providers, the personalized experience and compassionate care are what make us your best choice for addiction counseling in Sacramento.  

As you progress through your recovery, the frequency and intensity of your sessions may decrease gradually until you eventually attend just a few recovery support group meetings per week. This progressive approach ensures that you receive the appropriate level of support throughout different phases of your recovery.

We may initially incorporate medications to manage your symptoms throughout your recovery journey. However, as you continue your transition toward lasting recovery, we will focus on equipping you with effective coping mechanisms to support long-term sobriety.

Take the first step today by contacting our team for a confidential assessment. We are here to support you on your journey to recovery.

How We Can Help

Our Sacramento Addiction Treatment Program


Recovery is a process - not an outcome - and each individual’s recovery is different. Whether you you are looking to stop the cycle of using, continue to relapse despite your best efforts, or just curious about recovery, recovery is what it means to move forward.


There are three principal medications that are used to treat opiate dependence: buprenorphine (Suboxone), methadone, and naltrexone (Vivitrol). While we do not provide methadone, we do offer treatment with all other medications to treat opiate addiction. There are also a range of medications that help with other addictions, such as alcohol and benzodiazepines.

Understanding Addiction Recovery

At Sequoia MD, we understand that recovery is a unique process, and we are dedicated to providing specialized outpatient services to help you stabilize your life and address the challenges that arise along the way. Our substance abuse programs are personalized to your needs and experiences, combining medication management alongside group and individual services to help you better understand the root causes of addiction. In addition, our goal is to help you resolve conflicts within your relationships, replace harmful behaviors, comprehend the impact of addiction, identify triggers, and develop essential coping skills.

We hand-craft your treatment plan based on your unique needs and experiences. The therapy you receive will encompass a combination of group and individual services, each designed to help you:

Group Participation

Participation in support groups is an integral part of our program for many patients, providing ongoing care as you navigate through recovery. By connecting with individuals facing similar challenges, you gain practical insights, coping strategies, emotional support, and a sense of belonging that can help you overcome feelings of isolation and focus on self-care to manage stress and improve overall wellness. We also offer 12-step groups that specifically cater to the needs of both individuals with addiction and their family members.

In these groups, you can:

  • Learn coping strategies from those with firsthand experience
  • Experience personal growth through sharing your emotions
  • Overcome feelings of isolation commonly associated with recovery
  • Focus on self-care ideas to manage stress and improve overall wellness

Support groups bring together individuals with similar conditions. These sessions can also be conducted online, eliminating the need for transportation while still providing enhanced communication and group support.

While peer support may not be best for everyone, many individuals find the support and community to be an incredibly beneficial aspect of treatment.

Don't delay in seeking help. Contact Sequoia MD today to initiate your outpatient addiction treatment in Sacramento.

Addictions That We Treat at Sequoia MD

What We Treat

There are many definitions of addiction, and many ways of viewing the problem. We view addiction as a chronic, relapsing, remitting medical problem, for which excellent treatments exist. Addiction recovery is possible.

The Sequoia MD Approach to Addiction Treatment

From medication-assisted treatment to treatment of mental health issues, our substance abuse and addiction treatment services in Sacramento, CA are tailored to you specifically. We find relapse prevention just as important as Sacramento outpatient drug rehab.

Substance use disorders come in all different types. Regardless of the particular chemical, everyone we see who has struggled with addiction has felt their life get out of control. Damaged relationships, problems at work, decaying family, money problems, feelings of loss of control are all hallmarks of the problem.

Some people need drug detox, while others may need additional treatment for an underlying mental health disorder. Some people require individual therapy, while others prefer family therapy.

Every situation is unique, and our goal is to create a treatment plan that is tailored to your needs, so you can get out of the cycle of using, and back to living your life.


Medications That We Use at Sequoia MD

What We Use to Treat

Recovery is a process – not an outcome – and each individual’s recovery is different. For many people, the initial period after the substance use stops is focused on stabilization. As the chaos associated with addiction begins to fade, things improve dramatically.

Medication-Assisted Treatment for Substance Abuse

Medication in the treatment of drug and alcohol addiction can significantly increase the likelihood of successful recovery. It’s important to understand that medication is just one piece of the puzzle; combined with counseling, behavioral therapies, and support groups strengthens your path to victory.

Medications play a crucial role in curbing intense cravings for drugs or alcohol. This empowers you to resist the temptation to use substances, reducing the chances of relapse.

Substance abuse can wreak havoc on your brain chemistry. The good news is that certain medications can restore balance to your brain’s neurotransmitters, improving your mood and reducing the risk of feeling down or anxious throughout your recovery journey.

Some medications are remarkably effective at preventing relapse by blocking the effects of certain drugs or alcohol. This is a powerful deterrent, ensuring you won’t experience the desired high even if you attempt to use substances. Medication-assisted treatment has demonstrated solid results in improving treatment retention rates. Reducing cravings and withdrawal symptoms motivates you to stay committed to your recovery program like a pro.

Combining medications with behavioral therapies is a winning strategy. Research shows that this combination significantly improves treatment outcomes for substance use disorders, setting you up for success.

Remember, it’s essential to work with qualified healthcare professionals specialized in addiction medicine for your medication journey. Tailoring the treatment to your unique needs and circumstances is vital.

Common medications that can be used during the treatment processs include: 

  • Naltrexone: an FDA-approved medication that can be used to treat alcohol and opioid addiction. Naltrexone blocks the effects of opioids and reduces opioid cravings. Naltrexone is not an opioid and is non-addictive.
  • Buprenorphine: an FDA-approved medication that can be used to treat chronic pain and opioid addiction. Buprenorphine is a synthetic opioid used to substitute stronger more addictive opioids at the start of treatment.
  • Disulfiram: an FDA-approved medication that can be used to treat alcoholism. Disulfiram causes unpleasant side effects when alcohol is consumed, including headaches and vomiting, as a deterrent to any alcohol consumption. 
  • Acamprosate: an FDA-approved medication used to reduce cravings associated with alcoholism.
  • Wellbutrin: an FDA-approved medication designed to treat depression, anxiety, and various other mood disorders. Wellbutrin can also be used to quit smoking cigarettes and has been shown to be helpful in the treatment of methamphetamine addiction.
