It can be difficult to open up and discuss problems with addiction, particularly when it comes to alcohol. It starts out as socially acceptable, then becomes a means to treat something that we can't quite identify. We can live many years lying to our loved ones (if they're still in our life), and sneaking behind peoples back to drink. You've said it time and time again, "I'm ready to quit this time." Please reach out to us if this is what you're experiencing so that we assure your success in getting better. There is no better of a story than a success story. And as with any recovery from addiction, we thoroughly encourage you to seek the help of loved ones as well as professional counseling/therapy.

Whether you became addicted to opiates due to a traumatic accident, poor prescribing or bad choices, we're here to help. Depending on your preferences, we can do a rapid detox, prolonged detox or stabilization and maintenance. Our philosophy on addiction is that it's a devastating illness and we want to make this as painless as possible for you. We utilize the spectrum of Medication Assisted Treatment methods including but not limited to Buprenorphine, Suboxone films, Suboxone tablets, Zubsolv tablets, Bunavail films and Subutex tablets. We do encourage combining Buprenorphine treatment with counseling and psychotherapy.
It is our philosophy that addiction can take any form. At it's most basic nature, addiction is a compulsion to repeat a behavior despite the negative consequences that come with it. This can include drugs, gambling, internet, sex, shopping, video games, food and even exercise. If you notice in a loved one behaviors such as lying, manipulating, criminal activity or the person not acting themself, then consider that they may be involved in an addiction that they can't control. With the advent of new medications and therapies, we are better able to help people. Medications such as Naltrexone, Topamax and Acamprosate have provided us with tools that allow us to help you now.
