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® and Vivitrol®), in combination with counseling and behavioral therapies. These therapies block drug cravings and withdrawal symptoms, which help patients overcome addiction.

Elm Tree Clinic was organized by a group of professionals who share concern about rapidly growing epidemic of opioid addiction in Massachusetts and throughout the country. The founding team brings decades of experience in healthcare services, public health, biomedical research, medical transportation, healthcare law, information technology and finance.
Addiction is a devastating disease for those who suffer and for their loved ones. We are dedicated to sustained recovery and wellbeing of our patients. With a holistic approach to the treatment of addiction, we will guide you throughout the treatment cycle to regain your health.
You are not at fault of
Because of the nature of the disease, before we start the treatment, we will evaluate your current clinical information, such as the liver function, pulmonary function and potential pregnancy for age appropriate women. Your treatment plan will include the following, as applicable:
You must demonstrate your commitment to health. During the first month of the treatment you will be tested for drugs of abuse (DOA) in urine twice weekly. As long as you stay drug-free, your doctor may recommend weekly appointments. After six months your doctor may recommend bi-weekly appointments with DOA urine test performed each week in between the visits. Additionally, your doctor will begin to taper your prescription of Suboxone® progressively, and at the approximately 13-month mark you may move from Suboxone® to Vivitrol®. You will then receive Vivitrol® injection every month for one year. Ideally, with our help and help from your loved ones you will become addiction free in two years from the start of the program. Throughout your healing journey we will help you choose the best "Dual Diagnosis" psychological treatment program as appropriate for your individual situation.
