WHAT WE DO

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. Our approach involves the use of FDA-approved medications (Suboxone®, Sublocade, and Vivitrol®) in combination with counseling and, if needed, psychiatric care. These medications block drug cravings and minimize withdrawal symptoms, helping patients control their disease of addiction.

WHO WE ARE

We are a group of healthcare professionals: medical providers, psychiatrists, and mental health counselors, who are committed to using evidence-based treatment to help our patients battling addiction. The founding team brings decades of experience in healthcare services, public health, biomedical research, medical transportation, healthcare law, information technology and finance. We are committed to identifying the most effective treatments and making those available to our patients in New England. Our mission is to give hope to people suffering from opioid and alcohol addiction and develop a comprehensive treatment plan to help them get their lives back.

“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

OUR PHILOSOPHY

Addiction is a devastating disease for both those who suffer from it and their loved ones. We are dedicated to helping our patients achieve sustained recovery and improve overall wellbeing. With a holistic approach to the treatment of addiction, we will guide you through personalized treatment to help you regain your health.

You are not at fault of having a disease but you are responsible for getting a treatment. Remember, people with alcohol dependence and drug addiction can and do recover!

OUR APPROACH

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:

    • Individual treatment program
    • Thorough medical and psychosocial history intake
    • Any necessary specialty referrals
    • Coordination of your treatment with other clinicians
    • Use of prescription drugs Suboxone®, Sublocade, and Vivitrol® for opioid use disorder
    • Use of Vivitrol® to help overcome alcohol use disorder
    • If needed, lab tests performed on-site at our full medical lab
    • 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 drug-free and 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.

What to Bring to Your First Appointment

  • A referral from your primary care provider
  • Results of recent blood work
    • If you have not had bloodwork done in the past 3 months, we will do it here.
  • A willingness to work hard to achieve your goal
