Buprenorphine provider since 2004
Hundreds of patients’ lives dramatically changed using buprenorphine/naloxone combination medications for Opioid Use Disorder.
Patients, having “reached bottom,” who started medication assisted treatment (such as buprenorphine) are now living functional lives, raising children in a drug free home, going to college, earning degrees, succeeding, obtaining promotions at work, marrying, and thriving as never before.
The most common response from our patients after starting buprenorphine/naloxone:
“I FEEL NORMAL”
Our reply is: “This is why we do what we do”
Probuphine Implant of Buprenorphine is also available at our office for appropriate patients.
We are a married couple and we have been treating substance use disorders since 1981 (Dr. Garlick) and 1997 (Mrs. Garlick). Our combination of specialties (Addiction Medicine, Internal Medicine and Social Work) have given us the rather unusual opportunity to provide comprehensive care, under one roof, to our patients. We focus on the patient’s needs for caring for physical, social and psychological issues in recovery as well as general health care advice. The majority of our patients have opioid use disorders (heroin or prescription drugs).
Our success in treating patients rests in the philosophy of our approach of using medication assisted therapy, individual and family counseling and coaching recovery models.
For patients who are motivated for self improvement and recovery, this outpatient setting is ideal for the treatment of opioid use disorders with medication assisted therapy and counseling.
We price our sessions reasonably and require as few sessions a month as is safely recommended so that patients do not have a significant financial burden. Our intention is that our patients are able to maintain their abstinence and live fully functional lives with as little stress as is possible.
