Just 30 miles south of Chicago, Confidential Care of Munster, Indiana, is an outpatient treatment center for addiction and mental health issues. Founded in 1990, by the husband and wife team of psychiatrists, Vijay and Sanker Jayachandran, Confidential Care serves adult and adolescent clients of northwest Indiana through ambulatory detox and an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP).
Treatment and Staff
Confidential Care’s substance abuse treatment basically follows one track, which they call the Ambulatory Outpatient Detox and Recovery Management Program. The program is designed to work with patients on an outpatient basis, so they can continue attending school, work, and be in the company of their support group of family and friends. If necessary, it includes dual diagnosis support for clients with co-occurring disorders, particularly depression. Before beginning treatment, clients work with counselors to organize individualized treatment plans.
The progression of treatment includes three phases. The Acute Phase lasts for one to three weeks of outpatient detox from alcohol, heroin and/or prescription drugs. Medical detox from alcohol may include prescribing Antabuse or Campral. Those who are coming off heroin or prescription opiods (hydrocodone, oxycodone) can be treated with Suboxone, if they choose. Clients also begin attending IOP while in this phase.
Those who do not require detox skip directly to the IOP stage, also called the Stabilization Phase, which typically lasts for 21 days to three months, depending on the client’s treatment plan. During this time, clients meet three times per week, for a two hour group counseling session, an hour of individual counseling, family/couple counseling (if needed) and medication management two to three times a week. Traditional talk therapy and CBT methods are utilized during counseling sessions. The staff will continue to administer Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) to help the process of opiate withdrawal, if the client desires. Clients transition to the Maintenance Phase, called outpatient recovery management after this. The third phase of outpatient treatment lasts three months to one year. Clients continue to participate in individual, group and family therapy, but drop down to once a week or as needed. The final phase, called Maintenance or Quality of Life is free for those who have successfully completed a year of treatment. It is the typical aftercare-type group that meets once a month to check in and offer support to program alumni.
Confidential Care’s President and Vice President, doctors Vijay and Sanker Jayachandran, are diplomates of the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology with subspecialties in addiction psychiatry. There are 21 other staff members at Confidential Care, including physicians, therapists and medical assistants.
Confidential Care has doctors on staff who are trained in a relatively new technology called Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS). This treatment echoes electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) procedurally for clients battling depression. However, compared to ECT, the side-effects of TMS are few because it is a non-invasive procedure. Highly qualified physicians supervise administering TMS treatment at addiction or psychiatric outpatient treatment programs.
Clients with co-occurring disorders—particularly those with depression—have a chance to explore alternative approaches to recovery at Confidential Care. The outpatient programming is laid out in a very simple and structured way over the course of a year. Clients who require medical detox, but wish to remain at home, will also find this program to be a great fit.
