Out-patient Suboxone Maintenance
Norton Health Care is a licensed OBOT (Office-based Opioid Treatment) Center providing medication-based solutions for the treatment of heroin and pain medication addiction. We may prescribe Suboxone, Subutex, or Buprenorphine or other medications depending on your needs. The goal is to taper these medications over time, but we do not put a time limit on treatment.
At Norton Health Care, we understand that there are many factors that can contribute to addiction including life circumstances, events, or medical or mental health conditions. Our on-site Psychiatrists and Psychotherapists are available as-needed or by appointment to work with patients on a one-on-one basis. Our trained, para-professionals are also available over the phone to provide support and guidance.
Recovery often involves loved ones. Families may be devastated by addiction and family support is often vital to recovery. With patient consent, one of our addiction specialists can reach out to family members to assist them in understanding the nature of addiction and encourage their support their loved one in recovery.
