Drug abuse of heroin and opioids are at epidemic levels and we want to help you on your road to recovery. Our heroin and opioid addiction rehab facility has an experienced staff that is emphatic to your situation and specific needs. Our team of professionals will compassionately guide you to a better way of life that’s free from opioid and heroin addiction.
Bring a state facility specific State ID (Ohio State ID or Tennessee State ID) and an insurance card.
The patient must be clean for 24-36 hours and experiencing mild to moderate withdrawal symptoms.
You can bring a support person that will encourage you throughout the process. For the first meeting, we recommend that you have a driver.
An extensive assessment is taken of your background history, a blood analysis & urine sample is taken, along with a pregnancy test for females. The doctor then meets one-on-one to develop a treatment program, and the dosage of medication is administered at that time. A time is set up with the counselor for the second visit.
Assessment of how the patient is doing and the doctor may adjust the dosage. The patient will meet with a counselor and a counseling program will begin.
The first month you may possibly see the doctor twice. If your test remain clean, you may come once a month. Some of our patients attend counseling 3 times a week while others come once a week. Counseling session frequency is based on your needs.
Counseling is decided between you and your counselor. You will have counseling opportunities for one-on-one, group, and family. This is based on your treatment plan and counselors/doctor discretion.
Suboxone, Bunavail, and Zubsolv are medications used to treat opioid or heroin abuse.
The duration of the program progresses at the speed that is comfortable for you. Some of our patients go through our programs in a few months while others have a longer process. When a patient is completely off medical assistance treatment, there will be a conversation between the doctor, counselor, and patient as to when the program is completed. The patient is able to attend additional counseling sessions as desired.
