The foundation of all our programs is the belief that individuals suffering from addictive disorders are best served by assisting them in achieving and maintaining abstinence from all addictive substances, either illicit or prescribed.
There is an approach to treatment of a certain type of addiction, specifically opioid dependence, which can be treated with Medication Assisted Treatment using Methadone or Suboxone (buprenorphine), both of which are addictive controlled medications. Many of our treatment-seeking clients have tried this approach and did not find the stability and quality of life they hoped to achieve.
Our programs assist all individuals to a life of sobriety free of all addictive substances. We frequently use non-addictive medications to assist our clients with detoxification, treatment of mood disorders, cravings and relapse prevention. This includes the use of Vivitrol (naltrexone).
If you are seeking Medication Assisted Treatment through the use of Methadone or Suboxone, we are happy to assist you in finding a local provider.
