Our Approach | Opioid Addiction Treatment Services

Patient-Centered Treatment

BHG’s Patient-Centered Treatment program uses a two-pronged approach to address the medical and behavioral aspects of opioid addiction. This Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) uses Methadone or Buprenorphine (aka: Suboxone) to address a patient’s physical dependence on Opioids, and team-based Behavioral Counseling to address a patient’s psychological dependence.

Hope, Respect, and Caring

Every contact we have with a patient or with someone who cares for a patient should leave that other person with a sense of Hope, Respect, and Caring. We offer Hope for people suffering from the disease of opioid addiction, because we know that the treatment we offer can help them regain the things they’ve lost due to their untreated disease. We provide Respect through our multidisciplinary, team-delivered treatment of addiction, ensuring that our patients are treated with the same dignity and respect that any health care provider gives to a patient suffering from a medical condition. Finally, our patients and the communities we serve should feel with every contact they have with BHG that we deeply Care about the epidemic of opioid addiction, and that we are committed to providing high quality care to those who suffer from this disease.
