Treatment and Resources

Medication Assisted Treatment
As part of comprehensive treatment, our physician team is approved to prescribe medication-assisted treatment for addiction when appropriate.

These medications include but are not limited to:

  • Buprenorphine (Brand name: Suboxone®)
  • Extended-release naltrexone (Brand name: Vivitrol®)

Smoking Cessation
Nicotine addiction is a serious, often life-long and life threatening disease that affects people throughout our nation and the world. Our team is willing and able to work with those affected using a multi-disciplinary, team based approach along with medications to improve your odds of quitting.

Addiction Counseling with Certified and Licensed Clinicians
Our committed team will help you or your loved one by providing the region’s most comprehensive and confidential treatment and intervention.

Individual, Family and Group Therapy and Education
Our therapy spans all levels of care, including one-on-one therapy, group-setting therapy, counseling and programs to benefit family members.


Intensive Outpatient Program
The Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) offers effective, flexible treatment sessions held in the evening, so participants can maintain school, work or family obligations.


Continuing Care
Without support, long-term drug and alcohol recovery is often very difficult. This program is designed to prevent relapse and enhance coping.
