At Pinnacle Treatment Centers, we treat our patients with compassion because that’s how we would want to be treated. Seems like a no-brainer, right? Well, many of us are in recovery ourselves. We’ve been in your shoes, we know how the grip of addiction feels, so we know how to treat those who are struggling with it.
If you were climbing Mount Everest, you wouldn’t just pull on a pair of boots and start climbing by yourself, would you? No. You’d want an experienced, expert guide. That’s how we see treatment for substance use disorders. We have 25+ years of experience supporting people with opioid use disorder (OUD) with an approach that is backed by 50+ years of clinical research. We go by the compass of what works.
We use medication-assisted treatment (MAT), the gold-standard treatment for opioid use disorder (OUD). MAT programs combine medications like methadone or Suboxone with counseling and support from experienced, certified, addiction counselors. MAT is not just about medication: it’s a holistic, whole-person approach to OUD treatment.
We also offer:

All treatment programs at Pinnacle include a combination of therapy, counseling, peer support, education, complementary modalities, and lifestyle changes, and aftercare support, based on your needs, personal history, and treatment goals.
