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 supportive counseling with medication to support the recovery of patients struggling with dependence on heroin, fentanyl, percocet and other narcotics.
