We have been offering treatment for Opioid Dependence and Addiction based on Buprenorphine (also known as Suboxone and Subutex) since 2003. Buprenorphine therapy will allow you to return to work and normal life immediately. If you are in a crisis situation, we offer same day or next day appointments. Appointments are confidential and personalized in the privicy of our medical office downtown Bethesda. Detox from Heroin or narcotic-based medications such as Oxycontin, Hydrocodone, Dilaudid, Methadone and other painkillers is available without hospitalization. Not everyone needs or can afford an expensive inpatient residential drug rehab program that requires a separation from work, family and friends.
In 2011, we have introduced Vivitrol Injection (Naltrexone for extended-release injectable suspension) for treatment of Opioid Dependence as well. Our physicians are pioneers of office-based treatment of Opoioid Dependence in our geographic area being among the first to use Buprenorphine. Today, they are the first in the area to use Vivitrol Injection in a private practice setting. They have the best experience to advise you which treatment is best for you.
A major advantage of our program is our expertise in the field of pain management . We recognise that in many cases opiate dependency is intimately related to a painfull condition such as low back pain. Our approach is to separate pain from addiction and to treat both. In addition, we also treat anxiety, depression, insomnia, atention deficit and other problems that are frequently seen under such circumstances.
