Our goals are to provide personalized, compassionate care with the necessary balance of flexibility and accountability, providing our clients with the tools to overcome the physical and psychological barriers of their addiction.
With the passage of the Drug Addiction Treatment Act (DATA) in 2000, Physicians with specialized training were permitted to treat opioid dependence in an office-based setting with the FDA approved medications, Buprenorphine and Suboxone.

We require; regular monthly drug screens, regular monthly on-site group therapy before every doctor consultation/follow-up. Additionally we frequently monitor the Prescription Monitoring Program to ensure compliance with treatment. Admitted clients must show continued evidence of working treatment to stay in the program.
Addiction is a chronic, relapsing disease. Opioid use disorder is complex due to influences by multiple factors, including genetics, environment, trauma, sociology, physiology, and individual behaviors. Other complicating factors include influence from federal, state, and private insurance regulators, and lack of understanding of the disease of addiction. Public perception is that once clients are detoxed from opioids, they should simply choose not to use. This acute care model is not appropriately applied to the chronic disease of addiction. Just as all people with hypertension or diabetes are not expected to control their chronic disease with diet and exercise alone, clients with addiction may not be able to control their disease without pharmacologic therapy. We are a maintenance program and believe in the right of the individual to partner with our clinical staff in determining their needs & options throughout treatment.
