Suboxone alone does not work. The LCADA Way will only prescribe Suboxone to customers who show motivation and want to change.

What if I don’t have transportation to sessions?

Transportation is available to the majority of our services based on need and location. Your counselor can help organize this service after the Assessment process. Tele-health is also an option when transportation is not available.

Will treatment require me to miss work?

The LCADA Way offers morning and evening sessions to accommodate working customers. Some courses of treatment may require you to attend Day Treatment, which is from 9am to Noon each day.

What is the difference between Vivitrol and Suboxone?

Suboxone is made up of Buprenorphine, a partial opioid agonist with a high affinity for mu-opioid receptor. Basically, that part of Suboxone reduces opioid cravings. Suboxone is also made up of Naloxone. Naloxone helps works as an antagonist and helps block any opioid in the your system.

Vivitrol (Naltrexone) is a once every 28 day shot that is a pure antagonist. It works by blocking the opioid receptors in your brain from receiving any pleasure from taking opioids. Vivitrol is non-addictive and can be used for Alcoholism as well. Visit

My family doesn't understand. Will they also be helped?

The LCADA Way has developed a family group to help educate families and loved ones about addiction. Family is encouraged to be a part of the treatment process.

Why is my family involved or asked to be involved?

Addiction is a family disease that affects all family members. Family group help families learn how to take care of self so that they can be supportive of their love ones.
