Dragonfly® Treatment Program
- Dragonfly is about your recovery.
- We will teach you what has worked for others and you can choose which path you would like to follow for yourself. We don't treat an unlimited number of patients. This assures that you will get as much attention as you need in order to heal. Recovery is a journey of healing.
- Dragonfly is outpatient medication-assisted treatment
- utilizing medications such as buprenorphine contained in Suboxone®. The goals are to rapidly alleviate withdrawal symptoms, stop opioid craving and prevent relapse. You will not be hospitalized in this program. If you have a supportive home or work environment these can be an asset and make you well-suited for outpatient treatment.
