Substance Use Services

LRGHealthcare Recovery Clinic

The goal of the LRGHealthcare Recovery Clinic is to help people achieve long-term recovery from addiction through the utilization of counseling services and medication treatment at the same time.

As a best practice program, the LRGHealthcare Recovery Clinic seeks to have clients fully engaged in substance abuse treatment services while receiving medications like Suboxone® that can help with their overall recovery. People who are involved in this program are required to stay engaged in behavioral health services throughout the time they are taking this medication.

Many patients are able to maintain sobriety long-term without long-term Suboxone®.
