LEWISVILLE, Texas (PRWEB) October 13, 2017
AppleGate Recovery, a division of BayMark Health Services, announced the opening of their first outpatient clinic in Ohio for the treatment of opioid use disorder. This marks the fourth AppleGate opening this year, allowing us to bring confidential, compassionate treatment to yet another area of the country in great need.
“3,495 people in Ohio died unnecessarily of an opioid overdose in 2016, an increase of 35% from the previous year,” shared Susan Cambria, Division President for BayMark Health Services. “AppleGate offers evidence-based treatment with medication, supported by counseling, which can offer a way out for those struggling with the disease of addiction. Our goal is to offer the best treatment science and addiction medicine has to offer.”
AppleGate Recovery provides medication-assisted treatment through the use of buprenorphine and buprenorphine compounds, also known by the brand names Suboxone® Zubsolv®, and Bunavail®. In addition to medication services, the new clinic provides individual and group counseling and case management services.
Dr. Philip Isherwood, Medical Director of AppleGate Recovery adds, “Unfortunately, the state of Ohio finds itself at the forefront of the opioid crisis. The surge in fentanyl and carfentanil is making heroin, an already dangerous substance, increasingly more deadly. We have found that integrating medication-assisted treatment with supportive services offer our patients a real opportunity to recover and live a healthy life.”
AppleGate Recovery Huber Heights is located at 7460 Brandt Pike, Huber Heights, OH 45424.
