Athol Drug Treatment
At CleanSlate, we specialize in the treatment of opioid addiction. When we talk about opioids (or ‘opiates’), we’re talking about heroin and prescription drugs like Percocet, Vicodin, and OxyContin.
At CleanSlate, we treat opioid addiction using two innovative and proven medications: buprenorphine (Suboxone) and Vivitrol.
Athol Intake and Treatment
Intake is your first appointment, where you’ll meet with a doctor, have a physical exam, and talk about your medical and drug abuse history. Your intake appointment sets the groundwork for the rest of your treatment. This is where you and your doctor discuss your concerns and decide on what kind of treatment program will be most effective for you.
Induction typically takes place the day after your intake appointment. This is when we’ll help you to transition from the substance to which you’re addicted, to the medicine that will aid in your recovery. Counseling and your medication, Buprenorphine (Suboxone), which prevents cravings and makes withdrawal from opioids feel less intense is an innovative and proven treatment for opiate addiction.
Athol Stabilization & Recovery
How often you come to CleanSlate for an appointment will depend on your personalized treatment plan. When you and your provider decide you are ready, we will slowly reduce your dosage as well as the frequency of your appointments over a period of time that feels comfortable for you.
