We are a faith-based medication-assisted opiate treatment center.
What does that even mean?
Let’s start with medication-assisted therapy. That means we use drugs, like Suboxone (buprenorphine/naloxone), to help clients with opiate addiction to not suffer through withdrawal symptoms. With a medication like buprenorphine, what’s called a partial opiate agonist, the person with an opiate addiction gets stabilized levels of dopamine in the brain, so he or she is not high or sedated, but is just “even” – not bouncing between euphoria and withdrawal.
We combine this medication-assistance with group counseling and even individual counseling if desired. Our therapists will help each person take a look deep inside to figure out what needs to happen to restore balance and peace to our clients’ lives. We are not in the business of shame and guilt and finger-pointing. Our counselors understand that we need to live according to our design in order to find joy in our lives, which comes not from just escaping pain, but from being able to handle what comes at us throughout our lives.
That brings us to the most important part of all this: the faith component. We operate under the belief that each of us are eternal, spiritual beings who are created in God’s image. But, we’re also broken people. All of us, not just our clients. We have come to understand that developing a relationship with God, and living as He created us to live, brings true peace and abundance in this life AND the next.
But, we’re not going to brow-beat anyone with a Bible. You don’t have to believe in God or be a Christian to be seen in our office. We aren’t going to try to “convert” you to our way of thinking, but we will be willing to have an open dialogue about spiritual issues. We won’t neglect this important part of our lives or yours!
