Medically Supported Opioid & Alcohol Treatment
Integrated Treatment Approach
Written Treatment Plan
Together we develop a written treatment plan for success which outlines our agreed-upon treatment approach.
We utilize the BRIDGE® to help dramatically reduce the medical side-effects of withdrawal from opioids and/or alcohol.
We utilize Vivitrol® to help prevent relapse after detox is complete.
Referrals to Other Professionals
An essential part of our plan is the close involvement of other professionals in the treatment plan. We refer counselors, therapists and other professionals to be intimately involved in your treatment plan.

Referrals to Professionals Who are Part of the Treatment Plan
Counselors help support all aspects of the patient treatment plan.
Therapy helps uncover and address any underlying issues that may impact the success of the treatment program.
When patients have legal issues, that becomes another factor to consider as part of their treatment plan. In these cases, we want to be sure that legal assistance is in place to support our patients needs.
