A New Way to Detoxification What's new? Our approach to recovery!
Due to advances in detoxification methods such as Suboxone® and Buprenorphine, we provide outpatient detoxification to many of those that thought they would have to go in-patient for detoxification.
Our services are transparent to our patients' employment. In most cases the patient can continue working during detoxification.
We provide the newest way to detoxify comfortably and completely from opiates. Our medical director is ASAM certified in addiction medicine and is licensed to prescribe buprenorphine (Suboxone® & Buprenorphine Plain Sublingual Tablets (Previously Subutex®)) for outpatient opiate detoxification.
Dr. Nathan's method allows you to rapidly return to work with no downtime. In addition, you will be able to sleep and be without withdrawal symptoms from day one.
We provide referrals to addiction treatment experienced psychiatrists, psychologists, psychotherapists, acupuncturists and yoga instructors to help your body and mind get and stay healthy.
