Retreat Center Clinic

The Retreat Center Clinic houses addiction medicine services and outpatient opioid detoxification. The outpatient opioid detoxification program primarily treats patients who have become physically dependent on opiates and who suffer from the disease of addiction.  It is a medically supervised detoxification program using a combination of buprenorphine and naltrexone in easing withdrawal symptoms.  Patients in this program are also required to participate in one of our outpatient therapy programs. 

In addition, the Retreat Center Clinic evaluates and interacts with persons with other substance use disorders such as amphetamine, sedative-hypnotic, cocaine, nicotine, and alcohol dependence.  For example, a patient addicted to a benzodiazepine such as Xanax that may have begun a tapering program in residential medical detoxification may continue that taper under the medical supervision of our addictionists in the outpatient addiction medicine clinic.  With the exception of alcoholism, those with less severe symptoms may begin their tapers in this outpatient setting. Most of our outpatient clinics are located in west Michigan.
