The department of Addiction Medicine and MaineGeneral Health welcomes all patients seeking treatment for their substance use disorder.
Our core philosophy is based heavily on the principles of harm-reduction, and we feel strongly that treating patients with dignity and respect leads to a better treatment experience and better patient outcomes.
We approach our daily work with this in the forefront of our minds.
Since opening in February 2021, we have been providing compassionate, evidence-based care for the treatment of substance use disorder to the members of our community. Although we have touched many lives, there is still such a great need for these services. We are working hard, every day, to expand our reach.
Please give our office a call. Our addiction medicine physicians will work with you to create an individualized treatment plan that focuses on diagnosis, treatment, and relapse prevention.
Individualized treatment plans are developed through one-on-one appointments with your medical staff. Treatment plans may include:
- Medications for the treatment of substance use disorder including long-Acting injectable medications (ie Vivitrol, Sublocade)
- Individual Counseling sessions
- Recovery Groups
- Patient Navigator Support
- Needle Exchange Services
