We offer the latest standard of medical care treatment. This includes FDA-approved Medication for Addiction Treatment (MAT) with Buprenorphine/Naloxone (Suboxone) or Buprenorphine (Subutex) to help patients stop their opioid use. This treatment is evidence-based, and can be provided online with private virtual visits. Plus we have locations to serve you. Studies has shown that MAT helps stop using opioids with the least physical discomfort and gas the lowest relapse rates.
Opiates” versus “opioids”: Although these terms are often used interchangeably they are different: Opiates refer to natural opioids such as heroin, morphine and codeine. Opioids refer to all natural, semisynthetic, and synthetic opioids. Synthetic opioids include oxycodone, hydrocodone, hydromorphone, oxymorphone, and Fentanyl. Fentanyl is a powerful synthetic opioid analgesic that is similar to morphine but is 50 to 100 times more potent, and has been blamed for many OD deaths when fentanyl is laced into street drugs without the users knowledge. MAT can help with all these drugs whether they were prescribed or obtained on the street.

Per the doctor's orders, you will then start your induction on Buprenorphine/Naloxone (Suboxone) to overcome any opioid withdrawals and cravings. If needed, then medications can be prescribed to provide comfort and ease the process.
