Substance Abuse Program
Good Samaritan Health and Wellness Center wants to help people safely deal with opiate abuse. We are offering substance abuse treatment using the medication Suboxone (main ingredient-buprenorphine). This program focuses on helping people addicted to opiates (for example : pain killers, heroin, fentanyl). Once a patient is approved for the program, the health providers at Good Samaritan will maintain the patient on a daily dose of Suboxone. We also offer other oral medications and Vivitrol injections that help reduce the cravings for opiates and/or alcohol. MAT patients are monitored closely and are offered counseling with a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and an alcohol and drug counselor.
Good Samaritan provides confidential family planning services to women, men, and teens. Our voluntary family planning services include counseling on contraceptive methods, pregnancy planning, educational materials, and related preventive health services. Uninsured patients need to apply for our sliding fee scale, but no one is denied access to family planning services because of inability to pay at the time of service.
