Ideal Option Opens Doors to Educate Community about Addiction Treatment

Share Article

All members of the community are welcome to drop by Ideal Option on Friday, April 1, between 12 p.m. and 4 p.m. to learn more about medication-assisted treatment.

Ideal Option, a national leader in outpatient medication-assisted treatment for opioids, methamphetamine, alcohol and polysubstance, will host an open house at their new clinic in Idaho Falls on Friday, April 1, at 380 N Capital Ave, Ste. 1.

Since the beginning of the pandemic, overdose deaths have skyrocketed across the nation, largely due to fentanyl, a plentiful, inexpensive synthetic drug 50 times more potent than heroin.

According to the Idaho State Police, from January to September 2021, more than 125,000 fentanyl pills were seized statewide, a 562% increase from 2020. Many illicit substances such as methamphetamine, street-acquired pain pills, and even marijuana are now commonly laced with fentanyl, often without the knowledge of the user.

Ideal Option’s own lab testing data, collected from patients across Idaho, show a 42% positivity rate for fentanyl at enrollment in September 2021 – a 242% increase over September 2020.

All are welcome to drop by the Ideal Option clinic to enjoy refreshments, learn more about addiction medicine, meet the staff and discuss ways to tackle the worsening opioid crisis in Bonneville County.
