Mission Treatment is a substance abuse clinic that was founded to help people struggling with narcotics addiction, by providing medication-assisted treatment and counseling to improve their quality of life. We offer medically supervised treatment on an out-patient basis to individuals who are addicted to all types of opiates including illegal drugs such as heroin and a variety of prescription narcotics such as Oxycodone, Hydrocodone, Codeine, and other pain killers. We are staffed by qualified and experienced doctors, nurses, and counselors. The goal of Mission Treatment, and the professionals who work for us, is to provide much-needed services in a caring, nonjudgmental environment to all who seek help for their addiction.
Our diverse range of counseling services includes supporting the personal, social, and emotional well-being of our clients in a clean, caring environment meant to soothe and nurture the soul.
We offer drug testing of biological specimens for those businesses that require regular employee monitoring of many types of illicit drug consumption.
Treatment for addiction includes medication use along with specialized counseling for a dual approach to recovery and peace of mind, body, and soul.
Methadone is a long-acting opioid medication that is used to eliminate cravings and painful withdrawal symptoms caused by heroin or prescription pill addiction.
The mission of Mission Treatment
When individuals go through the detoxification process but cannot feel normal, methadone or buprenorphine can help normalize your body’s neurological and hormonal functions that have been impaired by the use of heroin or prescription pills. Individual lengths of stay vary depending on the duration and severity of the addiction. Individuals who are good candidates for abstinence may titrate down from their stable dose at a rate that does not cause withdrawal or cravings, leading to a successful medically supervised withdrawal and abstinence from support medication. The main difference between these two medications is that methadone is a full agonist and buprenorphine is a partial agonist. Another important factor is the flexibility offered with buprenorphine treatment, as the federal regulations for take-home medication are not as strict as with methadone. Talking with our physician will help you decide which medication is best for you.
