Our Services at This Location
Methadone TreatmentMethadone is an opioid agonist blocker and helps to reduce cravings and withdrawal symptoms when administered therapeutically by a medical professional. The dose is ingested, typically in liquid form, and is tapered off in accordance with cravings and withdrawal symptoms.
Suboxone TreatmentSuboxone contains Buprenorphine and Naloxone. Combined they block opioid receptors to prevent the effects of other opioids, with a built in ceiling effect preventing overdose or misuse.
Sublocade TreatmentSublocade is an injectable form of Buprenorphine that releases slowly over a 30 day period. This treatment is ideal for patients that struggle to access daily medication, and should only be administered by a medical professional.
Kadian TreatmentKadian is a form of morphine that is taken orally with an extended release. It is a full opioid agonist blocker and is used for more severe opioid addictions.
Hepatitis C Screening + TreatmentWe routinely screen our patients for Hep C, a liver disease more common in people who inject drugs. If blood tests reveal an infection, we help access medication and additional support.
Doctors’ ServicesOur doctors work with each patient to determine the treatment plan and medication that works best for their needs.
Pharmacy ServicesWe operate a network of full service pharmacies, many of which are co-located with our treatment clinics. These pharmacies ensure seamless access to treatment medication.
Care ReferralsWe help connect our patients with additional community resources and support as needed.
Naloxone KitsNaloxone kits can help someone survive in the event of an overdose while waiting for emergency medical professionals. Anyone who uses or knows someone who uses opioids should carry one. Get them for free at any of our clinics.
