-- Trek Medical Advanced Treatment Options, LLC is proud to announce the official opening of the area’s premier outpatient substance abuse and addiction clinic. The program specializes in helping those addicted to heroin, opiates (pain pills) and alcohol. Unlike traditional programs, their model is medically-based and addresses the physical cravings first so that patients can focus on their recovery.
Trek Medical is led by a core team of healthcare professionals who bring over 100 collective years of insights to the new facility. The group is led by Medical Director Angelo Sambunaris, M.D.
"No other outpatient treatment program has made this kind of commitment to addressing the physical aspects of addiction in conjunction with co-existing emotional issues," said Sambunaris. “For our patients, the compulsion to use substances is usually due to a genetically pre-disposed chemical imbalance in the brain that leads to self-medication as a means to alleviate troublesome symptoms.” This chemical imbalance affects the function of the brain, making it nearly impossible for substance abusing individuals to make healthy choices about their life.
Trek Medical’s unique approach is a comprehensive, biologically-
based and medication-assisted treatment protocol that helps individuals achieve recovery via a change in lifestyle and, ultimately, provides long-term success. “The bio / psycho / social model has proven to be far more effective than other single modality treatment protocols,” continued Sambunaris. “We are very excited about the success our patients have experienced thus far.”About Trek Medical
