Norton Health Care was established by Dr. Aafaque Akhter, a licensed psychiatrist who has specialized in opiate addiction treatment since 2003. Dr. Akhter has created a truly unique model with incredible results. Norton Health Care is growing. We now have 10 doctors on staff and are opening our third location with plans in the works for the fourth and fifth.
Norton Health Care offers many services on-site, close individual attention to each patient, and a comprehensive recovery plan. We have helped more than 3000 patients on their path to recovery. By growing as a self-pay clinic for over a decade, we were able to develop a truly unique and effective program.
On your first visit, one of our experienced doctors specializing in addiction treatment will do a full medical assessment and get to know you and your situation. They will help you create an individualized treatment plan including medication, therapy, support, and life goals to guide to real and lasting recovery.
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.
