Opioid clinics focus on overcoming each patient’s physical opioid addiction, by treating individuals with the correct medication in combination with counseling and skill development. As progress is made on a medical and psychological level, workers at the clinics then focus on helping the patients understand how they will be able to put their lives back together. Clinics work to rehabilitate the aspects of a person which are suffering the most as a result of addiction, including building on top of the strengths of that person, protecting that person’s rights to privacy, respect, and dignity, and assisting in the development of a better quality of life.
There are many different levels of treatment available at opioid clinics across the state. This includes inpatient treatment, outpatient treatment, drug and alcohol detox, sober living, medical treatment, counseling services, and motivational therapy.
