Our mission is to promote prevention of opioid use via physical therapy and to promote health and wellness through the facilitation of successful opioid addiction recovery by implementing an individualized, comprehensive, professional, and multidiscipline treatment in a comfortable, compassionate, and judgement free environment.
We are an office based opiate addiction treatment center offering services in an outpatient setting, commonly known as a suboxone clinic. Our treatments are based on State and Federal guidelines as well as the best practices established by professional organizations such as SAMHSA and the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) for opioid addiction treatment. Our physicians utilize those recommended guidelines to establish an individualized treatment plan including medication assisted treatment options. Our comfortable atmosphere, judgement free staff, and extreme compassion is what sets us apart from other rehab facilities.
Medication Assisted Treatment
Medication assisted treatment comes in several forms. Our physicians primarily use buprenorphine to manage opioid addiction. Common names of products containing buprenorphine include Suboxone, Subutex, Zubsolv, and Bunavail. This type of facility is often referred to as a "Suboxone clinic" or "Suboxone treatment" or "Suboxone Doctor". However, we offer a complete treatment program that may include buprenorphine to manage the opiate addiction.
Other opioids bind entirely to the receptors in the brain and create a euphoric effect with increased dosing. Buprenorphine is different than those opioids in the fact that it only partially binds to the receptors. This partial binding tricks the receptors into feeling satisfied without the strong euphoria and respiratory depression. Buprenorphine is also longer acting than other opioids and can remain bound to the receptors for up to 3 days.
We strongly believe the "purpose of buprenorphine treatment is to suppress the debilitating symptoms of cravings and withdrawal, enabling the patient to engage in therapy, counseling and support, so they can implement positive long-term changes in their lives which develops into the new healthy patterns of behavior necessary to achieve sustained addiction remission" as defined by the National Alliance of Advocates for Buprenorphine Treatment.
Often patients go to their doctor for pain or musculoskeletal related issues and leave with a pain prescription. Many of the addiction patients started inadvertently in this manner. Physical Therapy should be the first line of defense against pain. Our Physical Therapist has a background in outpatient and home health and will develop a treatment plan to treat pain or musculoskeletal illnesses that can be performed in the comfort of your home.
