Opioid Treatment Program

The Opioid Treatment Program (OTP) provides outpatient treatment, counseling and referral services for adults addicted to opioids (heroin, morphine, hydrocodone, oxycodone, etc.). The program is state- and federally-accredited to provide medication-assisted treatment starting with the stabilization of the patient’s opioid addiction.

OTP uses a pharmacotherapy approach to allow patients to experience decreased withdrawal symptoms and cravings normally associated with opioid use. Ongoing therapy, implemented and overseen by a team of medical and counseling professionals, assists each patient with setting and achieving realistic health and lifestyle goals.

OTP determines success by identifying a patient’s continued stability and ability to:

  • Improve and maintain relationships
  • Gain successful employment
  • Address mental health and medical concerns
  • Ultimately contribute to the community in a positive manner.

Among our patients, after 6 months to one year of treatment:

  • Emergency room visits decreased from 80% to 9%
  • Hospitalizations decreased from 12% to 3%
  • Patients charged with new criminal offenses decreased from 25% to 0%
  • Illicit drug use decreased from 100% to 20%

Hours of Operation:
Office hours: 6:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Payment:  
Private pay, Group Health and Molina, and Medicaid (TANF, GAX) as funding is available.
