"Throughout my long career in emergency medicine I witnessed the devastation that was the product of opioid dependence, often the result of over-prescription of opioid pain medication. My second career has been to redress some of the damage done by these drugs and give people back their lives, health, and well being.”

No matter how or why you started taking opioids, the continued use of opioids beyond simple pain relief is a medical condition that requires medical treatment to resolve without the fear of withdrawal. Only about 10% of opioid dependent patients are successful with unsupervised, “cold turkey” withdrawal. Prolonged use of opioids has a negative effect on the neurophysiological architecture of the brain. Medically assisted treatment with buprenorphine prevents withdrawal and allows a slow controlled weaning process all while counseling and support begin to rebuild the neural pathways to contentment, joy, and wellness. This method has been shown in repeated studies to have the highest level of success over the longest period. If you or a loved one needs help getting off opioids take the first step toward healing and recovery.
TentHouse Health & Wellness is always looking for compassionate physicians, physician assistants, advanced practice nurses, counselors, social workers, administrators, and volunteers.
