Why pick Sunrise Treatment Center for you Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT)?
People realize the benefit of working with a local company rather than a larger national franchise. We can tailor our treatment to the individual patient. We have no “cookie-cutter” programs. We offer a program that has been shown to be successful. Over the past decade, we have helped hundreds of individuals addicted to opiates become free of their addiction. We take special interest in serving pregnant women and collaborate with their care providers or can make referrals to Ob/Gyn practices.
Sunrise is a pioneer in the field of addiction treatment. Sunrise was the first MAT (OTP) to bring a Suboxone-only treatment center to SW Ohio.
Sunrise Treatment Center has the most experienced physicians on staff. Our doctors have 35 years of combined experience in Addiction Medicine. Not only do we have great physicians, they are full time staff and will be here to see you throughout our treatment.
How soon can you get me in for treatment?
We can typically get a patient started on medication in 1 to 3 days.
Our limitation is when you last use an opiate. If it was a short acting opiate such as heroin, hydrocodone, or oxycodone, we can see you within 24 hours of your last dose. If you had taken methadone, due to its persistence in your system, we would want the last dose to be 48 to 72 hours prior to your first dose of medication. This time frame is to help prevent a sudden precipitated withdrawal.
We do accept walk-ins, but you must follow the guidelines above for your last opiate dose.
We will check your COWS scale or withdrawal scale to help us judge if it is safe to give you your first dose of medication at that time.
Do I have to go to group therapy initially?
Though we have a more intense group program, IOP (Intensive Outpatient), for the individuals who need additional help, daily IOP is not a requirement for all patients to start treatment.
Do I have to be on medication to attend counseling at Sunrise?
Medication is not a requirement to attend counseling. There is a segment of people who can do well on counseling alone.
Does Sunrise offer Mental Health services?
Many of the patients we see have a number of mental health issues such as anxiety, PTSD, panic disorder, depression, bipolar, ADD/ADHD as well as other diagnoses. We feel that the treatment of these problems is essential for long term success. Some of the mental health issues are directly related to drug use, and the longer you stay away from illicit drugs, the better you get.
When we see that there is an issue that needs to be addressed during our discussion, we will give you the options that we have to get you in for mental health counseling and possibly medications. We recognize that underlying diagnoses need to be addressed to allow you to feel the best you can.
