An ever-growing problem across the United States is that of substance abuse. One American dies every 19 minutes from opioid or heroin overdose.
With shocking numbers like that, the need doctors for addiction treatment in our society has more importance than ever, as our country and its citizens fight this epidemic. If you, a family member, or anyone you know may be struggling with an opioid addiction, heroin addiction, alcohol addiction, or any other substance abuse problem, Community Health and Dental Care has developed a professional team of doctors specializing in addiction treatment at our opioid addiction medical center. Together, they determine the best treatment program for individuals struggling with substance abuse problems.
Center of Excellence
CHDC is proud to have received a Center of Excellence (COE) Award from the PA Department of Human Services for Montgomery County. The COE award provided CHDC with the resources needed to partner with Creative Health Services to quickly perform a level of care assessment, giving us the means to properly develop a treatment plan.
Medication Assistance Treatment
At CHDC, we are able to provide people looking into substance abuse support with Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT). We have developed a strong program that includes certified recovery specialists, care managers, substance abuse counselors, licensed clinical social workers, MAT support staff, and doctors who specialize in treatment for heroin addiction. These experts work together to provide a whole treatment program, rather than just supplying medication to treat the disease.
Finding the Right Treatment
In Pennsylvania, an average of 12 people die each day of opioid overdoses. Families in areas like Pottstown, Boyertown, and all throughout Montgomery County are losing spouses, children, brothers, sisters, parents, nieces, nephews, and friends. The staff at CHDC’s opioid addiction medical center understand how to help people struggling with addiction, and they know that there are treatment options available that will work. If the first time fails, we will both try again, as many times as it takes, because recovery IS possible.
