You've made it to the right place.

At Fresh Start Health we treat opioid addiction because we understand why other approaches fail. Opioid addiction is a substance use disorder, which is a chronic disease that is called Opioid Use Disorder (OUD). It is not caused by a moral falling. OUD rewires an individual’s brain, and this makes it harder for people to quit. It has to be treated like other chronic diseases, and not all treatment programs do that.

If you’re suffering from addiction, you understand how this disease can destroy your life. You understand how hard it is to quit, even after trying and trying again. There is no single path that is correct for everyone. However, research shows that individuals who seek recovery are more successful when they engage in medication-assisted treatment (MAT), with behavioral counseling and a reliable network of support.

Specialized treatment in these areas & more:

  • Treatment of opioid use disorder (OUD)
  • Medication-assisted treatment (MAT)
  • Case management
  • Peer-support services
  • Individual & group counseling
  • Access to prophylactic medicines for HIV prevention
  • Infectious disease testing, treatment & prevention
  • Tobacco cessation treatment
  • Primary and family healthcare services

Did You Know?

Research shows that addiction is a type of medical disorder. It is not a moral failing or weakness.

Its origins are comparable to other chronic, relapsing diseases like heart disease or diabetes. And like these other chronic diseases, there are treatment options that approach the illness with medication, behavioral, and lifestyle changes.

This Prew Trusts video demonstrates the complexities of Opioid Use Disorder (OUD). Contrary to common belief OUD is a disease, just like other chronic diseases, it can be addressed. Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) is shown to be the most effective therapy for patients seeking long-term recovery. Learn how MAT helps patients manage their disease, progress towards recovery, and decrease their risk of overdose.

Care visits from home are easier for me. I'm thankful this is an option.

MAT stands for medication-assisted treatment. It is used for the treatment of opioid addiction. The medications are used to block the effects of opioids. Research shows that this approach reduces cravings and, in some cases, helps patients with opioid withdrawal. MAT is an option used in conjunction with counseling and behavioral therapy, which is essential for long-term recovery.

There are multiple recovery programs that promise success. MAT research shows that it provides the most promise for long-term recovery from opioid addiction. The following details some of the most discussed benefits to this form of treatment:

— Reduces the risk and incidence rates of a fatal overdose
— Increases the likelihood of successful recovery
— Helps patients improve social functioning
— Reduces related criminal activity
— Improves patients potential for gaining employment
— Lowers the risk of contracting Hepatitis C and HIV
— Improves outcomes for pregnant women who are addicted to opioids and their child

Yes, in fact, most of our patients receiving addiction care treatment are also receiving care for primary care-related issues. Our patients tend to develop deep relationships with our staff and practitioners, and even after recovery they stay under our care long-term.
