Substance Use Disorder Treatment
Opioids are the leading cause of unintentional death in North America. (HRSA Opioid crisis website: www.hrsa.gov/opioids ).
Primary care settings, like North Shore Community Health, (which includes Salem, Peabody and Gloucester Family Health Centers), have become the front line in addressing the opioid epidemic. Our community health centers offer a patient-focused setting with seasoned, compassionate professionals uniquely able to assist those who want treatment for opioid use disorder.
North Shore Community Health currently has a very successful Substance Use Disorder Treatment program.
NSCH strives to improve and safeguard the lives of our patients who suffer from opioid use disorder through compassionate and integrated primary care. Our Substance Use Disorder Treatment program primarily uses Suboxone (buprenorphine/ naloxone) for opioid dependence and addiction treatment. Patients benefit from individualized care plans with the help of a dedicated nurse care manager and integrated medical team. Services offered include education for disease and overdose prevention, Narcan (naloxone) training and comprehensive behavioral health services.
