Addiction Recovery Medication-Assisted Treatment

Addiction Recovery Medication-Assisted Treatment

Say Yes to a New Day.

Going through withdrawal is a physical and psychological battle with dangers few people realize, but with a professional medication-assisted treatment program patients can detox safely and effectively for a brighter future in recovery. Our integrated treatment program combines counseling and behavioral health therapies with medication to help patients with substance use disorders begin recovery so they can live full and healthy lives.

This service is only offered for patients ages 18+.
