Who we treat

Our programs are designed to meet our clients' unique needs with customized care programs. We treat individuals, couples and families who are:

  • Struggling with serious addictions requiring immediate attention

For some patients with opioid addictions, the hospital can prescribe buprenorphine (Suboxone®, Subutex®), an alternative to methadone. All patients must also participate in a counseling program.
