WHAT ARE THE GENERAL GUIDELINES OF A NEW START CLINICS?

We offer outpatient medication-assisted specialized quality care for opioid drug use management and recovery. We support the education and understanding of addiction as a disease, so that more patients and communities can find the care they need to focus on and overcome the current national opioid epidemic.

Addictive illness is a chronic brain disease that can be addressed with treatment and treatment works. Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) programs and the medications used today have been studied and proven to be highly successful in recovery over years of research.

At New Start Clinics, our programs use the latest science to create a comprehensive plan for patients that include MAT, counseling and medical services. Programs are customized to the patient’s needs and services are delivered in a way that respects the dignity, value and self-worth of every individual.

We are committed to each of our patient's success stories. We believe in you. We are are apart of the recovery process every step of the way.

OUTPATIENT TREATMENT

Begins with selection of an Accredited Behavioral Health Service Organization or Alcohol and Other Drug Entity (BHSO/AODE) program.  Typical treatment approach would consist of two physician visits monthly, coupled with two (Cognitive) therapy sessions monthly, two Narcotics Anonymous / Alcoholics Anonymous (12-Step Program) sessions monthly.

AFTER CARE

After Care is designed to transition the patient to a maintenance phase of treatment with Abstinence as the goal but only after the bio-chemistry and neuropathway changes of the brain have occurred. 

MAINTENANCE

During the maintenance phase, the patient will continue toward the goal of abstinence or the lowest possible dose of Buprenorphine-Naloxone (Suboxone) to remain in recovery.  

The maintenance phase can be sustained long-term by a monthly visit with a provider, behavioral health therapy session, and Narcotics Anonymous / Alcoholics Anonymous (12-Step Program) twice monthly. 

These processes will not ensure success but will greatly increase the possibility of sobriety.  With abstinence-only, the sobriety rate is less than 10%.  With a MAT program sobriety after one year jumps to 50%.
