Post Acute Withdrawal is a critical period in early recovery and subject to relapse. We are aware of this and use medication short term to achieve the most comfortable and successful detoxification and stabilization experience. Inpatient treatment may be useful for some, but not necessary for all patients.
Outpatient treatment, according to the research, is one way to establish and maintain continued abstinence post acute withdrawal.
Whether this is your first time seeking help or feel it is time to try something different, we are here.

OUR UNIQUE SERVICES INCLUDE
A NON-OPIOID WITHDRAWAL PROTOCOL:
The Parallax Center utilizes a unique opioid withdrawal protocol that avoids the use of opioid medications and allows for complete abstinence from any form of opioid medication. This allows for the induction of naltrexone, a non-addictive medication which can more rapidly restore normal brain function and thereby help to heal the opioid-impaired nervous system.

READY TO DETOX FROM YOUR MEDICALLY ASSISTED TREATMENT?
We can help you detox from Suboxone or Methadone! First, we recommend you speak to your current provider. In order to start your detox from Suboxone, you must be at 4mg BID (8mg total) or less, and to detox from Methadone, you must be at 60mg or less.
Due to being opioid naïve at the end of detox, we strongly encourage the use of the MAT option, Vivitrol, post detox. This would allow protection if there were a relapse during the post acute withdrawal stages, assists with curbing cravings for opioids post detox, and begins to repair the opioid receptors in your brain that have been impacted by use. This is not an opioid based medication and not something you will need to stay on for the remainder of your life.
