Responsible Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) for Opioid Addiction
Opioid use affects every dimension of a person’s wellbeing, and because opioid use disorders are very difficult to break, many people struggle to make it past the early days of recovery. Medical research definitively indicates that those with opioid addictions – whether to legal or illegal substances – benefit from some form of recovery-oriented medication during the treatment process. We offer buprenorphine for acute withdrawal symptoms and naltrexone for long-term recovery support.

With decades of addiction treatment experience, our Chief Medical Officer understands how addiction impacts the body, mind, and spirit.
