Aegis’ Newest Locations!
Sep, 18 2018
As we continue to fight the opioid epidemic, one of our continuous goals is to be able to provide more accessibility to treatment for those in need. One way of providing that accessibility is to provide more locations for services. In 2018 so far, Aegis has opened the doors of two new locations, one full clinic and one medication unit.
Aegis Treatment Centers – Redlands, CA
Due to the lack of Opioid Use Disorder treatment in the City of Redlands and at the request of San Bernardino County DBH officials, we started brainstorming how to best create a MAT clinic in late 2016. During our entire process, Redlands City officials were transparent about their rate of opioid deaths and individuals seeking treatment at Hospital ER’s around the city. Therefore we collaborated closely with the City of Redlands and San Bernardino County Department of Behavioral Health to create a location that will save lives and help all who are interested in seeking treatment for their Opioid Use Disorder . We hosted an Open House on Monday, January 22nd, 2018 and more than 50 community leaders and providers attended to help us celebrate this awesome milestone. We officially opened for treatment services April 2, 2018!
Aegis Treatment Centers – Grass Valley
Last year, April 2017, we announced the opening of our first Medication Unit (MU) in Redding, CA. This was not only the first MU for Aegis, but the first in California. The purpose of the MU was to be able to provide treatment to those who don’t have access and/or the means and transportation to get the necessary help for a successful recovery. We have made great progress towards that goal!
We are happy to announce the opening of Aegis’ second MU in Grass Valley, CA. We opened the doors May 1, 2018. This MU, as with the one in Redding, will afford our patients, current and future, more convenient access to treatment care!
Aegis 1st priority is to our patients and their well-being and successful recovery. We will continue to research and implement ways to afford more access throughout California.
