Your program is not what a drug addict needs. Abstinence works well for alcoholics. It DOES NOT WORK FOR HEROINE ADDICTION. I believe if you were a Suboxan based program he would have benefited from...

It was an alright facility.

CMC

Great staff, very clean and comfortable. This was a great facility. However, there were not many activities to do outside of groups.

Concerned

Staff formed unethical relationships with client. Female client's work with sexual abuse issues with male counselors. Bedbug problem ignored. No real treatment goes on.

The facility was old and run down. My counselor, who is no longer there, had very bad boundaries and did not respect the patient/counselor relationship.

Areas of Focus
Medical Detoxification

The medically managed detoxification unit is staffed twenty-four hours a day by registered nurses, who specialize in the treatment of substance abuse and mental disorders. Physicians see clients every day and are continuously available to the unit. Parkside is on the cutting edge of new treatment modalities and is one of the few facilities in the country using Buprenorphine to treat withdrawal symptoms and stabilize clients suffering from opioid dependency.

Residential Services

Individuals in this program reside at Parkside while undergoing treatment. Nurses and physicians are available twenty-four hours a day to monitor for ongoing symptoms of withdrawal. Clients become actively involved in the educational, individual and group activities that form the core of our treatment program.
