We use a variety of leading edge treatments to help patients recovering from opiate addiction. Clinically supervised methadone treatment has proven to be highly effective. We provide high-quality methadone services at clinics in our Snohomish-Everett, Eastside, Summit-Seneca, and Shoreline branches. Suboxone®, which contains Buprenorphine and Naloxone, is also successful in the management of physical and mental withdrawal symptoms for certain types of opiates. Through Medication-Assisted Treatment, using methadone or Suboxone® therapies, we can help people in need recover from opiate addiction.
But medication is only part of the solution. Safe and proven opiate substitution therapies are combined with counseling to achieve the best results — lives become more stable, employment is possible, homelessness and criminal activity are reduced and families are able to stay together.
