What Kind of Treatment is Provided?

Each patient meets with a provider to determine their treatment course. Medication, individual therapy, and peer support services are offered as treatment options. Referral resources can also be provided if a higher level of care is necessary.


Why Medications?

Medications are a critical component for both mental health and substance abuse treatment. QSR believes in the scientific approach and research-based evidence practices of the utilization and implementation of medications. Psychotropic medications aide with chemical imbalances in the brain, promoting regulation. Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) are specific chemical dependency medications utilized for detox and stabilization. The detox medications provide relief from the withdrawal symptoms and protection from potentially life-threatening effects. Medications are equally critical to curb the cravings during treatment. When cravings are effectively controlled the patient becomes more engaged in long-term recovery through individual, group, and family counseling.

What Insurance Plans Does QSR Accept?

QSR is in network with most major commercial insurance plans, including Medicaid and Medicare. Prior to scheduling an initial appointment, a benefits check is conducted to determine potential out of pocket expenses that may occur. This information is carefully reviewed with each patient prior to scheduling an appointment for complete transparency. If not in network, QSR also has cash pay options.
