ABOUT THE MEDICATIONS WE ADMINISTER

Methadone is a prescription only medicine that can be taken orally and is used mainly to treat opioid addiction for Methadone Treatment. Is was initially developed as a painkiller but now it is much more widely used to treat people who have got stuck on heroin or other opioid drugs (such as prescription painkillers).

Suboxone is a combination of two drugs – buprenorphine and naloxone – that work chemically to decrease the severity of withdrawal symptoms and reduce a patient’s dependence on opioids in the long term.

Addiction requires individualized treatments that address the symptoms and underlying causes of the disease, as well as the consequences that substance use has on different areas of a person’s life. This includes their ability to socialize, their physical and mental health, and consequences at work, home, school, or with the law. There are many types of therapy available to effectively treat addiction.

(MAT) is the use of Methadone or Suboxone medication in combination with counseling and behavioral therapies for the treatment of substance use disorders. A combination of medication and behavioral therapies is effective in the treatment of substance use disorders and can help some people to sustain recovery.

Integrated treatment planning that includes substance use screening and treatment is key to providing better health outcomes in integrated care.

How Medication Assisted Treatment Works

Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) is the use of medications in combination with counseling and behavioral therapies for the treatment of substance abuse disorders. Offering this combination of medication and behavioral therapies is proven to be effective in helping some people sustain recovery. Addressing substance abuse is critical to providing quality care in an integrated treatment setting. Many individuals who suffer from a substance use disorder also suffer from other chronic health conditions. Integrated treatment planning that includes substance use screening and treatment is key to providing better health outcomes in integrated care.

Step 1: Evaluation

When we evaluate someone, we take into consideration many different variables. We don’t focus on the dependency alone; we also consider the social circumstances, support systems, and motivations for change.

Step 2: Create A Plan

After an evaluation, we take our medical expertise and provide our patients with an individualized plan that combines these factors. We work with each individual in a judgement-free environment and treat them with compassion.

Step 3: Start Treatment

The combination of medication and behavioral therapy is what treats addiction. The medication staves off the physical symptoms, withdrawal and cravings.  The counseling helps patients address their emotional and behavioral issues associated with addiction. Evidence-based research shows that neither one is as effective on their own as they are together.

I wouldn't recommend this clinic. Yeah, they medicate you, but the nursing dept is VERY unprofessional and bad at the... job. They basically act their "wage." They also talk about the patients. Oh and DON'T expect the DIRECTOR to help you or call you back. He hides in his office. He seems to be on a "conference call" every hour of everyday. Please RUN away from this place. They never want to accept the mistakes they make. I only gave this rat hole one star because there's no option for zero stars.read more

The staff there are great for the most part. I would definitely recommend this place. They take state insurance,... regular insurance, and even cash. If you get a counselor you don't like, then you can ask for a different person. They will work with you to help you get clean, and they wont over prescribe methadone. The only thing that bothers me is they're a little too controlling.read more

I have been at Starting Point for 6+ years. I'm not going to say everything has been peaches and creme since I been... here but, I will say my issues have been addressed wether I agree with the final outcome or not they were addressed! I have the most amazing, patient, kind, sympathetic counselor. Sarah always gives me the most honest feedback.My recovery has been going good and I have maintained sobriety since I been here. Nursing is the center of it all because, without the nurses showing up for work everyday we wouldn't get medicated. The nurses are so personable and work very hard at providing our medication every day. I guess we all take the nurses for granted but truth be told we need to be more grateful to them!!!read more

They are very unprofessional and expect to much. They are worried bout paperwork and not saving lives. When evidently... the person in a clinic before was approved before but they still give you the run around. You go here lie about your medical issues because they will make you travel for paperwork. I would recommend that you find something else convenientread more

So this clinic is the best I have been to and they do care and want to help but will only go as far as you go and... that's how it should be remember only you can change if you want to and you can if you want it bad enough. And do not settle cause you are assigned that counslor if you don't feel comfortable with that counselor ask for another or one you think will work cause being able to talk to some one is a HUGE part of your mission (treatment) so for new people I would recommend this facility for sure just make sure you come ready to be clean and not play gamesread more
