According to National Institute of Drug Abuse, "The abuse of and addiction to opioids such as heroin, morphine, and prescription pain relievers is a serious global problem that affects the health, social and economic welfare of all societies.”
An estimated 26.4 million to 36 million people abuse opioids worldwide with an estimated 2.1 million people in the United States suffering from substance use disorders related to prescription opioid pain relievers and an estimated 467,000 addicted to heroin.
At Golden Gates Treatment Center, our commitment is to offer three primary opioid treatment services intended to assist patients in achieving optimal treatment outcomes. Our three primary treatment services include detoxification from opiates utilizing Methadone, medically supervised withdrawal, and Buprenophine therapy.
Our program intends to use an interdisciplinary approach for addressing the personal and social needs of the patient. We will utilize both in-house resources and/or referrals to outside agencies and service providers.
Specifically, Golden Glade's treatment services are designed and implemented to:
- Support the recovery, stabilization, and well-being of patients.
- Enhance and promote the quality of life for all patients served through a harm reduction model.
- Reduce symptoms associated with opioid use and dependency, and build individual resilience as part of a relapse prevention strategy.
- Teach and model ways to help patients restore and/or improve their daily functioning and life skills.
- Support patients as they re-integrate into their communities of choice, families, and/or support systems.
