Segue Clinic helps restore hope, healing and health to people fighting opioid addiction.
What we know is true
Addiction treatment works best when it engages the body, mind and spirit.
Patients treated with compassion and respect are more likely to succeed in their recovery.
Addiction is a chronic disease – but it can be controlled by encouraging change and promoting recovery.
Successful treatment requires both medical management and counselling.
How We Do it
There are four phases in the treatment plan. Each patient is unique and your program length will be customized for you.
Phase One: START
At your first meeting, we will assess your level of opioid addiction and need for treatment. When you begin your program, we’ll help you to transition from using a street opioid drug (oxycontin, percocet, hydromorph contin, codeine, heroin etc.) to either suboxone or methadone.
Phase Two: STABLIZATION
You’ll have weekly appointments and drug tests during the stabilization period. You’ll receive regular counselling and meet with your Segue Clinic physician as often as needed until you are medically stabilized.
Phase Three: MAINTENANCE
During the maintenance phase, we’ll help you focus on continued participation in counselling, show you how to prevent a relapse and continue your sobriety from all illicit substances. Some people choose to continue with occasional use and if that’s your choice, we’ll work with you on a harm-reduction approach.
Phase Four: RECOVERY
In the recovery stage, you’ll become part of a new community with the skills and strength to prevent a relapse. The medication you’ll be taking will be gradually decreased over a period of several months. After the medication is stopped, we’ll encourage and help you to continue to participate in a recovery group.
