How does treatment work? We provide medication assisted treatment MAT using buprenorphine (Suboxone™) and methadone. This puts an immediate stop to illicit opioid use and relentless withdrawal symptoms—and puts the focus on recovery. Currently, there are 50,000 people in this kind of treatment in California.
50% medication. 50% counseling. We make treatment simple, personal and powerful— no judgment, just support. From counseling and therapy to education and groups, you don’t have to do it alone. It takes a village.
You will have a team to welcome you. Your admission assistant will privately walk you through the first steps. You will see our medical doctor who will evaluate and talk with you to answer all of your questions. You will have a special program, made for you, and the doctor will stay in touch with your progress.
Patient-centered, to what each person needs. Outpatient, so your life isn’t on hold. We start at whatever point you are, whenever you’re ready, looking at you as a whole person. We answer everything. Everything is clear. We work with you to help you keep the freedom of your daily life including work, school and family.
How long does it take? This depends on the person, the time span of addiction, types of drugs used and methods of use. However long you need, we are with you the whole way. 88% of our patients stop using illicit opioids within 90 days. Three out of four say their quality of life is better by 180 days.
Addiction is a chronic, relapsing disease of the brain. Because drug addiction physically changes and can damage the brain, medical care is essential to avoid chronic relapse, harm or even death.
“Almost 5 ½ years ago I was on the verge of losing everything, including my life. Heroin was more important than my 6 month old daughter and everything else I loved. 5 ½ years later, with the help of Aegis, counseling, accountability and my higher power, I now hold a full time job w/ a state funded program working to advocate for addicts & addiction professionals, I have a valid license, a clean record, a solid home life and most importantly …. My daughter can look at her mommy with pride and security knowing she is safe and loved. Thank you Aegis for what you do, as I would not be where I am w/out you’re advocacy & support!”
