e believe in meeting people where they are- no matter what. That means that we never use "tough love" or a "3 strikes" rule.
Our mission is to solve the opioid crisis and repair our communities by providing addiction treatment that works. That's not a mistake. We want to solve the opioid crisis. By offering medication-assisted treatment, behavioral therapy, and individualized treatment plans, we believe that we can give many people the best chance at long-term recovery.
That's why we exist.
Our approach helps patients feel better, get better, and stay better. We use medication to help patients feel better, enabling them to focus on their recovery without cravings. We also use behavioral therapy to help people get better and stay better. This combination of medical and therapy services is an evidence-based approach to addiction medicine, and one that we believe allows us to best live out our values every day.
Addiction is not a moral failure. We do not use words like "clean" or "dirty" because we know that words kill. We are constantly working to reduce the stigma around addiction with the hope that we can encourage more people to get help and seek treatment.
If we are ever going to solve the opioid crisis, we have to start by combating stigma and follow with evidence-based treatment.
