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.
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

After six months your doctor may recommend monthly appointments with a urine test performed every two weeks.
