| Opioid Addiction Treatment Services

Before going to the BHG clinic and beginning methadone treatment and counseling sessions my life had no hope. I was using drugs of all sorts and doing things I thought I never would see myself do. I thought there was no answer to my problem (addiction). I lost all control of my life. I am very sure if it wasn’t for methadone treatment and counseling that I wouldn’t be here today. Thanks to the other thoughtful and courteous people at my clinic: the program director and the folks at the front desk who are always there to help, and the nurses who are always quick to answer any of your questions or concerns. It’s just great all the way around. One day I hope to help other people who were like I was before, lost, addicted, and hopeless, find what has changed my life!
