Heroin and pain pill addiction often requires medication assisted treatment (MAT) to relieve cravings and withdrawals. This can be an important first step to recovery along with entering a comprehensive program that includes evidence based counseling services. These medications can be very expensive at other programs. These costs bring extra burdens at this crucial juncture. Only ICGH has its own inhouse pharmacy to provide free or low cost medications.

ICGH Counselor, Peer Specialist, and Veteran Wayne McMeans, CSAC-R, NCCPSS, and ICGH CEO and Clinical Director Corey Richardson, DHSc, MBA, were presenters at the 7th Annual VA Mental Health Summit in Asheville, NC, today. McMeans was the honored key note speaker and opened the forum with his meaningful message of hope as he shared his own recovery story. Dr. Richardson held an intensive workshop for VA mental health services providers on evidence based practice in the treatment of opioid use disorders. Laura Tugman, PhD, Assistant Chief of Mental Health Services at Charles George VA Medical Center has organized this conference for the last 7 years. An interesting side note, Drs. Richardson and Tugman are also childhood friends who grew up together in Boone, NC. All are already looking forward to next year's summit, and have several events and forums planned in the interim.
I got a call.
A friend in opioid crisis outreach had a mother in crisis. Her child had overdosed only hours before the call. The mother needed to talk to someone, anyone, about her loss. We did not have anything in the community for this mother. No state agency or non-profit organization had a program in place... and this person didn’t have insurance.
I called this grieving mother, and we spoke at length. After the call, I knew we needed to do something more. The initial shock of the loss. The long process of mourning and healing afterwards...
I reached out to Catawba Regional Hospice and Partners Behavioral Health Management. Our program allows immediate help to anyone who has lost a loved one due to overdose: Call the crisis line at Partners at 1-888-235-HOPE (4673). For follow-up or an appointment for someone to talk to, Call Stacey at Integrated Care of Greater Hickory: (828) 322-5915, ext 220. Or message me through Facebook Messenger.
Insurance is not a requirement for counseling concerning the loss of a loved one due to overdose. Stacey will work with Catawba Regional Hospice to assign an experienced grief and loss counselor. You do not have to travel this road alone...
They are still in our hearts.

For those patients who prefer counseling from a Christian perspective....
Integrated Care of Greater Hickory offers behavioral health services for all creeds, races, religious affiliations, sexual orientation or expression, immigration status, disability, or other distinguishing status. We are an all-inclusive healthcare service provider. Here at ICGH, we have seen a great need for a Christian-focused model of care. Our own Licensed Professional Counselor, Audra Kuchenbecker, LPC, has specific training to meet the need of the Christian client, couples, or family. Individuals of faith may be better suited to a Christian counselor and a Christian-focus of care when addressing depression, anxiety, OCD, PTSD/trauma, or other severe behavioral health problem. Christian couples and families may benefit from the special training Audra has in her Prepare/Enrich Certification. With this Christian method, committed marital or pre-marital couples gain a deeper understanding of dynamics, personality, stress and strength and growth areas. Also, Christian parents expand their understanding of parenting styles and dynamics while strengthening their own communication.
Please share this to let our community know that special Christian care is available at Integrated Care of Greater Hickory, Inc. 828-322-5915, ext. 220.
