The treatment is based on client participation and the understanding that methadone medication is not a cure for addiction, but an alternative, and is used as part of the recovery program that includes counseling, support groups, and other help provided by the clinic staff while in treatment.
Our goal is to first stabilize the client. Once stabilized, a client can begin on the road to recovery. While receiving methadone medication, clients will eliminate the withdrawal symptoms, the craving for other opioid drugs and the feeling of getting high. Clients are able to look for and maintain employment, take care of their families, increase their self-esteem, decrease their criminal activity and lives begin to become more manageable.
Admission to the program is based on certain criteria, including intake interview, laboratory results. urine toxicology, physical exam and psychosocial assessments. Final admission will be made by the Medical Director and/or Staff Physician. Admission to the program is available for adults, 18 years of age or older, who have a history of opiate addiction.
No person will be discriminated against because of religion, sexual orientation, marital status, race, color, national origin, sex or handicap.
