What services do you provide?
Psychiatric evaluations and psychotherapy services are provided by our clinical staff, with prescribed medications and psychotherapy as indicated by need. In addition, our staff can assist those in withdrawal, provided you meet the appropriate outpatient level of care per ASAM criteria. If necessary, you will be directed to an emergency department or inpatient rehab. Please call us with questions.

What Are Opioids?
Opiates are any of a number of drugs that are derived from the poppy seed and include heroin, methadone, and a large class of prescription medications used for pain control. Generic names for pain medications are hydrocodone, oxycodone, codeine, fentanyl, hydromorphone, morphine, and more.

Some common brand names for these medications are Norco, Percocet, Percodan, Oxycontin, Roxicodone, Roxicet, Vicodin, Lorcet, Lortab, Vicoprofen, Dilaudid, Duragesic, MS Contin, Demerol, Fioricet or Fiorinal with codeine, and others.

Why Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT)? Isn’t the goal to be sober?
Substance use, or addiction, is a disease, so use of medications as a bridge to sobriety is not a sign of weakness. Plain and simple, abstinence-only programs have far more relapses. MAT demonstrates fewer relapses across a variety of studies.

Do you accept my insurance?
Please reference our list of approved insurances. We take most commercial insurances, as well as Medicaid and Medicare. Please check with your insurance company. In addition, you are always welcome to call us.

Is my information confidential?
