About Our Clinic

New Start Clinics is an outpatient addiction medicine clinic.  We use the “medication assisted treatment” method (Suboxone) to minimize withdrawal symptoms.  Our holistic approach involves collaborating with the patient’s primary care provider.

What you can do now to help yourself or a family member?

Treating opiate addiction requires support by a professionally trained medical provider as well as family member support.  Often, family is the key.  It’s an uncomfortable first step, but we will help you along the way.  If you or a loved one are addicted to opiates and have struggled to find a solution, the first thing to do is call (509) 587-0105 and begin a free conversation with a knowledgeable staff member.
