At Elm Tree Clinic we provide Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) to our patients with opioid and alcohol use disorder to help them safely return to a normal life. In addition, we provide behavioral health services including diagnosis and treatment of many types of behavioral issues. At Elm Tree Clinic our team approach is patient-centered. We offer psychiatric diagnosis and medication management for
Co-occurring disorders which involves the use of FDA-approved medications (Suboxone®, Sublocade, and Vivitrol®) in combination with counseling and psychiatric care. These medications block drug cravings and minimize withdrawal symptoms, helping patients control their disease of addiction. With a holistic approach we will guide you through personalized treatment to improve overall wellbeing.

“One of the most satisfying parts of my job is when one of my patients tells me about how the treatment they received here really helped them gain control over their disease. I love hearing about families reunited, jobs obtained, and health regained. It’s what it’s all about.”
- Karen Haessler, PA-C

You are not at fault of having a disease but you are responsible for getting a treatment.
Because of the nature of the disease, before we start treatment, we will evaluate your current medical condition. We obtain blood work for information such as the liver function, blood count, Hepatitis C, HIV, and pregnancy for age appropriate women. Due to a complexity of the addiction disease, we provide a holistic approach which includes:o Individual treatment program
o Thorough medical and psychosocial history intake
o Any necessary specialty referrals
o Coordination of your treatment with other clinicians
o Prescription drugs such as Suboxone®, Sublocade, and Vivitrol®
o If needed, lab tests performed on-site at our full medical lab
o Work with your support network of family and friends, as requested by you
You must demonstrate your commitment to health.
During the first three months of treatment you will be tested for drugs of abuse (DOA) in a weekly urine drug screen. As long as you stay committed to coming to your appointments on time, your doctor may recommend appointments every two weeks. After six months your doctor may recommend monthly appointments with a urine test performed every two weeks.
