HealthQwest Mission Statement
To provide comprehensive substance abuse services for persons who are dependent upon opioid substances. Our mission is to offer the most effective treatment by providing a caring, compassionate and nurturing environment. Our staff is dedicated, trained and committed to offering only the best, individualized treatment using a holistic approach.
HealthQwest Program Philosophy
Narcotic replacement therapy is one of the most effective forms of treatment for opiate dependence. Each patient is treated individually and the length of treatment varies from person to person. A patient may remain in treatment for as long as clinically indicated provided that he or she is making positive life changes. At any time, a patient may request to undergo medically supervised withdrawal. Patients are all encouraged to begin medically supervised withdrawal at some point in their course of treatment.
In addition to issues of dependency, many patients have other psychosocial, emotional, occupational, medical, legal, and educational needs that should be addressed in order for treatment to be effective. HealthQwest staff is well equipped to address co-occurring issues. HealthQwest’s philosophy is to provide the necessary resources and referrals to stabilize and restore positive functioning for each patient on an individualized basis.
Program Goals & Medication Assisted Treatment
The primary goal of HealthQwest is to promote and support abstinence from opiates and all illicit drugs. Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) is also used to achieve the secondary goal of decreasing high-risk behavior such as IV drug use, unsafe sex, illegal activity, and overdose. The range of services offered by HealthQwest should allow each patient to achieve stability and recovery in all aspects of their lives.
