Our Suboxone Clinic can help you get life back on track

People don’t plan to become addicted to opioids. But opioids are highly addictive substances, and many people find themselves trapped in a destructive cycle they didn’t expect. Very often, they feel ashamed of the damage addiction causes to their careers, families, and friendships.

It’s vital to get treatment for your opioid addiction. Use of Opioid can be deadly, and accidental overdoses kill thousands of Americans every year.

It’s important to remember that addiction is a medical disease. And there are medical treatments available to treat it. One of the most effective is Suboxone treatment.

The Suboxone Clinic at Ridgecrest Regional Hospital

Our Suboxone Clinic provides a medication called Suboxone to patients struggling with opioid addiction. This drug helps alleviate withdrawal symptoms almost immediately, and it’s effective with an up to 70% patient success rate without relapses*. You can also take Suboxone long-term to help control cravings and avoid a relapse.

Once withdrawal symptoms are under control, you can start to treat the underlying physical- and mental-health related causes of addiction, so you can heal and move forward with your life opioid-free. Our Suboxone Clinic works closely with Ridgecrest Regional Hospital mental health professionals to get you the treatment and support you need.

Our Treatment Philosophy

Addiction is a disease

And that means its treatable. We provide research-backed medication and treatment that can help you overcome it.

Addiction often accompanies other mental health conditions

Underlying issues like anxiety, depression, PTSD, past trauma and more can contribute to substance use. We help you treat those as well so you can fully heal.

You deserve compassion & respect

You don’t deserve to be judged for your addiction. We provide understanding, one-on-one care that meets you where you at, so we can help you get where you want to be.

We treat more than addiction. We treat you.

Addiction doesn’t happen to people in a vacuum. People experiencing addiction very often have parallel mental health struggles that they might be attempting to “self-medicate” with drugs, including with depression, PTSD, anxiety, and unresolved past traumas.

Ridgecrest Regional Hospital has a variety of mental health practitioners on staff to help addiction patients manage these conditions. Many of our mental health services are available remotely.

Ridgecrest Regional Hospital Suboxone Clinic FAQ

How often do I have to go in for Suboxone treatment?

Treatment plans are tailored to each individual. For the first few weeks, you’ll probably check in very frequently. Later on, you may check in monthly, while taking the medication at home every day.

Who prescribes Suboxone?

You can’t get Suboxone from any physician. Doctors need specific authorization from medical regulators to provide Suboxone, and the number of prescriptions they write are closely monitored and limited.

How do I get my Suboxone?

Since Suboxone is a prescription medication, patients can get their Suboxone immediately after their visits at our on-site pharmacy.

How long will I have to take Suboxone?

Some people take Suboxone for years. Others can taper off the medication after 6-12 months if they feel confident in their recovery and aren’t abusing any opioids.

Will my treatment be covered by insurance?

Our clinic accepts most private employer insurance and public insurance like Medicare or Medicaid. We are in-network with nearly all major health insurers. Addiction is a medical disease that can be treated with proven medical treatments.

What happens if I relapse during treatment?

Our Suboxone clinic does drug testing to test for opioids. Some clinics kick patients out if they fail their drug tests. However, we don’t feel that is realistic, and that that approach is harmful to patients. If you relapse, we’ll talk about it with you without judgement, and get you the support you need to get your recovery back on track.
