At Advantage Mental Health, individuals struggling with addiction are provided with a medically-supervised outpatient treatment program that allows patients to participate in work, school, and family events while receiving care. Advantage Mental Health's medically assisted detoxification is offered on an outpatient basis, providing patients with education and substance abuse counseling while simultaneously prescribing FDA-approved medications such as buprenorphine (also known as Suboxone®) to minimize opioid withdrawal symptoms. Through this combination of evidence-based medical treatment, counseling, and patient education, Advantage Mental Health provides a flexible environment that allows for a sustainable recovery from addiction.
