How We Can Help

Our Programs


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 Codeine Addiction

Codeine is a prescription pain medication utilized for mild to moderate pain management and is an ingredient in prescription-grade cough suppressants. It is typically available in tablet form and combined with Acetaminophen in popular painkillers like Tylenol 3. Despite its medicinal purposes, patients prescribed Codeine can unwittingly develop an addiction to this opiate narcotic.


As an opiate, Codeine shares its classification with substances like Oxycodone, Heroin, and Morphine. Sometimes, codeine use initially begins with a doctor’s prescription, commonly in the form of a Codeine-based cough syrup. Codeine is less regulated than more potent opiates like Morphine and OxyContin, making it relatively easy to obtain and abuse. Codeine, while less potent, yields effects akin to Morphine.


A significant risk associated with Codeine use is the development of tolerance and subsequent dependence. Many individuals start using Codeine to address medical issues, only to escalate usage due to the development of tolerance. Consequently, Codeine is misused to manage both physical and emotional pain, leading to a dangerous cycle of chemical coping and addiction.


Although some perceive Codeine as harmless, high doses of the drug can lead to severe consequences, including respiratory failure, coma, and even death. This risk amplifies when Codeine is combined with other central nervous system depressants such as alcohol, benzodiazepines, or additional opioids.

Comprehensive Codeine Addiction Treatment

At SequoiaMD, we believe in individualized addiction treatment. We develop personalized treatment plans tailored to patients’ specific needs and circumstances. During an initial assessment, we work to understand the history and duration of drug use, and treatments patients have tried before. We then discuss treatment options, including prescription medications that could help.

We offer a range of evidence-based therapies, including behavioral therapies proven effective in treating stimulant addiction, providing patients with the best tools for a successful recovery.

Our team of medical professionals possesses a deep understanding of both the physiological and psychological facets of addiction. we provide careful management of withdrawal symptoms, ensuring physical safety as patients embark on the path to sobriety. After initial withdrawal symptoms have been addressed,e address the emotional and mental challenges, offering therapies that focus on rebuilding self-esteem, managing stress, and fostering resilience.

We understand the importance of a safe and non-judgmental space in the recovery journey. Our experienced medical staff fosters an atmosphere of acceptance, empowering patients to seek the help they need without fear of judgment.


People dealing with Substance Use Disorders (SUD) often harbor fears of mistreatment, rejection, and judgment, which pose substantial obstacles to their recovery journey. To aid these individuals in their path to healing, we embrace non-judgmental, accepting, and supportive attitudes throughout the addiction treatment process. We foster an environment where those battling substance abuse can experience safety, understanding, and empowerment to seek necessary help. Our skilled medical professionals are dedicated to diminishing the stigma linked with substance use disorders, emphasizing that addiction is a disease necessitating treatment, not a sign of weak willpower.

Education plays a pivotal role in the recovery process. At SequoiaMD, we provide comprehensive psychoeducation, arming patients with the knowledge and skills necessary to successfully navigate the challenges of recovery. Understanding the science behind addiction, learning effective coping mechanisms, and honing life skills are integral parts of our programs. We empower patients to take charge of their recovery journey, equipping them with the tools needed to maintain lasting sobriety and rebuild their lives.

Our medical professionals can work together with a range of healthcare experts, including psychiatrists, psychologists, counselors, and social workers, to offer a comprehensive approach to addiction treatment. This interdisciplinary method ensures that the diverse aspects of addiction are effectively addressed.

One of the most powerful tools in the recovery toolkit is the support of others who have walked a similar path. SequoiaMD provides a supportive community where patients can connect with individuals who understand their struggles intimately. Through group therapy, peer support sessions, and communal activities, patients can find camaraderie and encouragement. Sharing experiences and triumphs in a safe space fosters a sense of belonging, reminding them that they are not alone in their journey to sobriety.

We recognize that addiction affects not only the individual but also their loved ones. Our family therapy sessions provide a platform for open communication and understanding, fostering healing within familial relationships. We equip families with tools to support recovery and rebuild trust, ensuring a strong foundation for life beyond addiction.

SequoiaMD isn’t just about breaking free from addiction; it’s about embracing life’s boundless possibilities. Through skill-building workshops, and educational programs, we empower patients to reintegrate into society with confidence and purpose. Whether aspiring to pursue further education, explore new career paths, or engage in meaningful hobbies, we provide the resources and support to help achieve dreams.

Stopping using feels great. However, moving away from drug use you have used every day for months or years is a big change.
