Substance Use Support

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11

Substance use support at Esperanza combines group and individual therapy sessions with medication to support the recovery of patients struggling with addiction to heroin, fentanyl, percocet and other narcotics.  Medical and behavioral health providers utilize a holistic approach to integrate medical, emotional, social and spiritual aspects of recovery.
