Our Story

Sunrise started in 2007 as Dr. Jeffrey Bill’s private practice where he provided Office-Based Opioid Treatment (OBOT). After several years, he became determined to build his practice into a proper treatment program that would provide the psychosocial support he knew was needed for achieving the treatment outcomes of which he believed medication assisted treatment was capable.

In April 2012, Steven Smith joined Sunrise and developed it into an Outpatient Alcohol and Drug Addiction Program.

In the summer of 2013, Sunrise transitioned to Ohio’s first buprenorphine-only Opioid Treatment Programs (OTP). This allowed increased access to services and a more comprehensive approach to treatment. This was quickly followed by initiating the acceptance of Ohio Medicaid for payment for services.

In July 2015, Sunrise opened an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP), adding an additional level of care. This allowed for continuing treatment with patients who were not a good fit or appropriate for non-intensive outpatient treatment. In April 2016, Sunrise opened a second location in Forest Park, OH. This facility was built to manage at capacity a census of 500 patients.

In July of 2017 the corporate office and West Side treatment center moved from Bridgetown to the current location in Dent on Harrison Ave. In April of 2018 Sunrise opened an office to serve the residents of Middletown and surrounding communities. Sunrise opened an office in Dayton in December of 2018 and an office in Milford in March of 2019. Sunrise will continue to expand to give communities quality evidence-based care in the fight against opioid addiction.
