Your Addiction Medicine Clinic
We are a private medical office dedicated to treating patients suffering from addiction to opioid drugs. Our mission is to employ sound medical knowledge and recognized standards of care to aid our patient's quest to be as free from drug addiction as possible. We seek to avoid diversion of prescription medication to illegal use by creating and encouraging an environment in which physicians, staff and patients understand the harm caused by illegal drug use and are committed to its prevention. In providing our services, we will show respect for the privacy and personage of every patient and will receive respect in return. We will foster a sense of responsibility and self-respect in our patients by encouraging each to be faithful to the goal of overcoming drug addiction and by the patient taking personal responsibility for the cost of our services. We will do all of this with courtesy, fidelity to our mission and in compliance with applicable federal, state and local laws, rules and regulations.

The Disease of Addiction:
Traditionally people have viewed addiction as a moral failing, or a personal weakness. Nothing could be further from the truth. Scientific evidence clearly proves that addiction is a chronic disease, similar to diabetes or schizophrenia. It can affect anyone, from any culture or economic background and has devastating effects on the individual and their family.
An Overview of Treatment:
Traditionally, people have expected to be able to “just quit”. Although many people may believe this approach to be the best option, scientific evidence clearly demonstrates that this is not the case. Current evidence states that Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) with Masters level therapeutic intervention has a much higher success rate, resulting in vastly improved quality of life. Medical Care Clinic has chosen to provide this type of multi-disciplinary approach to treatment.
