Drug addiction is not a moral failing, but rather a chronic and treatable disease of the brain. Unfortunately, stigma and misinformation are all too common in addiction treatment and actually discourage patients from seeking help, understanding their treatment options,
and receiving proper evidence-based treatment. This type of misinformation and prejudice has no place in addiction treatment.
At Canton Recovery Clinic we believe addiction, like many other chronic diseases, is not only treatable, but often curable by combining proper medication with education, support and behavioral changes.
Helping patients and families navigate the complicated landscape of addiction and recovery is often challenging, but also tremendously rewarding. Addiction medicine is one of the few medical specialties that affords a physician the opportunity to literally save lives and improve patients’ quality of life every day.
Our doctors started practicing addiction medicine in 2008. We combine evidence-based medicine and principles of harm reduction along with medically-assisted withdrawal (detox) for virtually all types of drugs and alcohol. Our outpatient treatment programs occur in various setting (home, your doctor’s office, our local clinic, etc.).
Canton Recovery Clinics individualized addiction treatment for patients and families in an office-based setting. We specialize in Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT), which is clinically proven to significantly reduce the need for inpatient detoxification service. MAT works by dramatically reducing cravings, improving treatment engagement and retention, helping prevent relapse and reducing the incidence of death from overdose.
Addiction treatment must be easy and flexible for both patients and their families. Removing barriers to treatment improves patient engagement, and engagement is one of the single greatest predictors of better outcomes for patients.
Canton Recovery Clinic’s treatment teams include physicians, nurse practitioners, registered nurses, and administrative assistants to better serve the needs of patients and their families. Treatment plans and medications are individualized to a patient’s needs and circumstances. We offer additional outsourced services through case management, psychiatric service referrals, telemedicine, and concierge services (home-based detox, MAT and addiction treatment).
Consistent with his philosophy of harm reduction, we provide education and training in opioid overdose reversal as well as distributing Naloxone reversal kits. As of December 2019, over 16,000 kits (32,000 doses) have been distributed with 2200 documented overdose reversals.
