Mind Springs Health now offers one of the few medication-assisted programs on the western slope for treatment of opioid (i.e. morphine, heroin, codeine, oxycodone, hydrocodone etc.) addiction. Suboxone, approved for use since 2002, is an opioid substitution therapy with many advantages over traditional methadone treatment. It is accepted as a safer choice as it offers less potential for abuse, is considered a good relapse-prevention tool and preserves mental status and alertness.
To find out if you, or someone you know, qualifies for this program please contact Dennese Brereton at 970.328.6969 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Minimum age for treatment is 18 years old. Financial assistance may be available.
That’s a lot of people. But it’s ok. While the exact cause of most mental illnesses is not known, research shows that many are caused by a combination of genetic, biological, psychological and environmental factors, not personal weakness or a character defect. Recovery from a mental illness is not simply a matter of will and self-discipline.
Outpatient therapy is available, accessible & affordable. If hospitalization is needed, West Springs Hospital offers the only psychiatric hospital between Denver & Salt Lake City.
