Patients who may not have experienced any legal problems, and yet have concerns or questions about their substance use may also contact Specialized Treatment Services, Inc., Methadone Clinic Brooklyn Park MN to arrange for a chemical health assessment.

Methadone Maintenance

Some patients may be right for methadone maintenance treatment at Specialized Treatment Services, Inc., Methadone Clinic Brooklyn Park MN. The length of patient involvement in this treatment program depends on the individual patients, their preferences, and their progress. Many patients choose a lengthy term of treatment, up to a few years, to give themselves adequate time to repair their lives, undergo intensive counseling, and make the necessary behavioral, social, and general life changes that are necessary to ensure long term abstinence from opiate drugs. There is no need for patients to know what they need in advance. The choice to continue or discontinue methadone maintenance is a collaborative decision made with the help of doctors and counselors.

Buprenorphine Maintenance

As an alternative to methadone treatment, we offer a buprenorphine maintenance treatment program. Just as it can in the methadone maintenance program, buprenorphine treatment is adjustable to short or long-term durations of treatment.

Medically-Supervised Taper

Patients undergoing methadone maintenance or buprenorphine maintenance who are ready to transition off their narcotic replacement medication will be given a customized plan or a long or short-term medication taper. This will be based on the patient’s medical, social, and psychological needs.
