I LOVE this place, my health insurance takes & my sessions with my counselor is by phone 1x per week for an hour. They really are extremely nice people that work here & I love attending this methadone clinic! 5 stars from me.
— Aegis Pasadena Patient
Before I found out about Aegis I had pretty much given up all hope of living a life free of opiates. In the past 4.5 months that I have been receiving treatment at the Pasadena clinic I have regained a new found hope for a brighter future, no longer dependent on the substances that had been slowly robbing me of my will to live. I am eternally grateful that I found Aegis and gave it a chance to help me regain control over my life. I just wish I had known about this place years ago!

Our outpatient clinic is located in North Central Pasadena on N. Lake Avenue north of E. Washington Blvd. and is convenient the Washington Square, Garfield Heights, Bungalow Heaven, and Normandie Heights neighborhoods. We are also close to Altadena. Pasadena is nestled at the base of the San Gabriel Mountains, and is a city of culture and charm with attractions like the iconic Rose Bowl Stadium, the historic Old Pasadena district, and the Norton Simon Museum.
We have been voted a top rehab facility by help.org and are licensed by the California State Dept. of Health Care Services. We are CARF-accredited.
Our medical doctor and certified counselors will guide you through the process of recovery, beginning with a functional and medical assessment. Medications will help reduce cravings and have been shown to reduce the risk of relapse. Methadone and buprenorphine are the two most commonly prescribed medications for opioid use disorder (addiction to heroin, oxycodone, and other painkillers).
Medication-assisted treatment is most effective when used alongside therapy and counseling. Our Pasadena clinic offers CBT, MI, and other evidence-based therapies shown to support recovery from addiction. By teaching life skills and contingency management, you get the tools you need to support you when faced with stress and life’s challenges. Peer support groups also offer ongoing opportunities to connect with those in your community who have also decided to rebuild their lives.
Most insurance accepted, including but not limited to Medicaid / Medi-Cal, United Health, Blue Cross, Blue Shield, Cigna, and Medicare.
