Providing hope and healing
for substance abuse
At Sheridan Memorial Hospital’s Addiction and Internal Medicine Clinic, we provide hope and healing for patients suffering from substance abuse and addiction issues. Our specially trained staff provides continuity of care and medical treatment for patients experiencing opiate/narcotic/methamphetamine addiction, stimulant and alcohol abuse, tobacco, gambling, and other addiction issues. The team works locally with community mental health professionals, offering a collaboration of services for patients who seek help with addiction.
We utilize Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) – an evidence-based treatment method in which medication is used therapeutically – to assist with decreasing severity of withdrawal and reduce the intensity of cravings.
Evidence proves that MAT, coupled with counseling greatly increases long-term success and sobriety.
We provide continuity of care for patients with addiction issues to focus on their unique needs.
