Dr. Richard Knapp, the famous podiatrist and author of How To Be A Humanoid (and other books including Human Condition: How to Get It When You’re Cheap), has created a clinic in WV called “The Suboxone Clinic”. Located in Alum Creek, WV, this outpatient facility for the addicted can treat addictions to all kinds of substances including heroin, methamphetamines, and even alcohol. There are four floors, thirty beds, and twenty-four rooms – all housed in a gleaming and modern facility designed by Knapp who hopes that this will be the first of many such clinics operating in and around West Virginia. The “Clinic” is open twenty-four hours a day and Dr. Richard Knapp employs the use of detoxification, individualized therapies, and relapse prevention programs in order to keep patients well.
In an ideal world, every addiction could be treated with an at home detoxification program but for those who must travel or who have medical conditions that make hospital detoxification impossible – or even if it is desirable – an inpatient facility may be preferable. The WV Suboxone Clinic serves this specific need by combining a comprehensive addiction treatment program in one location. Patients can take their prescriptions for Suboxone right inside the clinic, have their meals served and have their rooms reserved and ready for them, while having any necessary lab work completed as well. They can then be released into their communities and homes, still taking Suboxone under medical supervision. If a patient is determined to return to his addiction, however, he can complete the remainder of his treatment in a fully certified inpatient facility under the supervision of a licensed medical doctor.
The WV Suboxone Clinic strives to treat all types of addicts – not just heroin, but also meth, cocaine, prescription pills, and other drugs. Patients are required to attend a two-day introductory session, receive counseling and support, and sign up for their treatment either in a community setting outside of the clinic or in their local community. Those who choose to withdraw from their treatments can do so without suffering any ill effects – whether through increased anxiety, cravings or withdrawal symptoms. The goal of the Dr. Richard Knapp Addiction Center is to provide its patients with the highest level of care and compassion.
