Our staff include substance abuse counselors, physicians, psychiatric, nursing, and administrative staff who work together to obtain the highest standard of care for our patients.Our individualized program serves the need of our clients to build a foundation for ongoing health and life style changes. We are a private-pay facility that provides the essential attention to clients ready to help themselves.Methadone treatment combines medical therapy with psychosocial services to improve the health and physical well-being of persons addicted to short-acting opioid drugs such as prescribed pain medications or other illegal street drugs.Often the disease of chemical dependency manifests with other conditions and disorders which need to be addressed in order to bring about the best possible outcome. Each client, therefore, will have an initial personal evaluation, and if further needs are indicated, our staff works with the client to refer them to other needed programs, as desired by the client.Methadone, when taken as ordered by a physician, is safe and effective and does not create a pleasurable or euphoric feeling as opioid drugs due to the blockading effect of methadone. While in treatment clients report that they feel “normal” or “do not feel anything” from their daily dosage of methadone. A client’s ability to function normally is restored reducing the high risk of relapse, the using and abusing pain medications or other illegal street drugs.
