Signature Health Willoughby Starts Suboxone Treatment
Opiate addiction has reached epidemic proportions in Ohio. Families are struggling, people are suffering and overdose/death rates are rising. Lack of accessible, coordinated services specific to opiate addiction is a significant barrier to making recovery possible. In response to this need, Signature Health Willoughby, 38882 Mentor Ave, Willoughby Ohio 44094 is starting a Suboxone Treatment Program. Suboxone is a medication treatment method for long term opiate addiction. Use of this medication in conjunction with comprehensive treatment services allows individuals to function normally without intoxication, impairment or fear of withdrawl symptoms, which will increase the likelihood of addiction recovery. Suboxone treatment is provided in combination with a full arrray of outpatient and/or residential services. For more information on this exciting new program, contact Melissa Pirigyi, LPN at 440.953.9999 ext 167 or email@example.com.
Residential Sites Offer Dual Diagnosis Treatment
Signature Health is pleased to announce a new service at both of our residential homes. The Dual Diagnosis Treatment Program is a 3-6 month program designed to offer services to adult males with a mental health diagnosis and a history of alcohol or drug use, abuse or dependency. While in the home the client will receive intensive treatment for both their mental health and chemical dependency issues. The treatment is provided by a special treatment IDDT (Integrated Dual Diagnosis Treatment) team with credentials and experience in both mental health and chemical dependency. The team will work closely with psychiatrists and nurses to maintain and adjust treatment plans as needed. This unique program will benefit families, courts and hospitals who in the past had nowhere to send qualified individuals to receive the help they need.
