The Dr. Narinder Saini Suboxone Clinic in Tomah, Wisconsin is committed to providing the patients with an extensive range of quality treatment options for heroin addiction. The clinic has established several partnerships with other facilities in the region including Wisconsin Department of Corrections, the Wisconsin Mental Health Complex, Wisconsin Department of Transportation, and the Madison County Medical Society. These collaborations have created opportunities for better treatment for inmates. In addition, they offer in patient detoxification at the Harley Davidson Treatment Center, Cedar Point Treatment Center, and New Beginnings Youth Services.
It is important that the patient understand that while on a detoxification program, they will be treated with Benzodiazepines and other medication for seven to ten days. Detoxification can take longer and patients should not attempt to stop taking their medication on their own until they have achieved the appropriate point in the detox process. Once detoxification has been completed, the patient may start outpatient follow up programs and maintenance therapy. During outpatient follow up care, the patient will be assessed on their progress can be monitored weekly during the course of the treatment.
Methadone is the main prescription medication used in the treatment of heroin and other forms of addictions. The patient is placed on a maintenance protocol in the clinic, which consists of two dosages a day. If the patient completes the program successfully, they will be offered a supervised intake at the methadone clinic. Methadone is used primarily as a maintenance drug, but in certain circumstances it can also be used as a short-acting treatment for a person who is experiencing cravings for the heroin or other drugs of abuse.
