Hamilton opening heroin detox center to fight epidemic

HAMILTON, OH (FOX19) - Modern Psychiatry and Wellness LLC is opening an outpatient detox center in Hamilton.

The center will be called "The Hamilton Center" for Mental and Health Addictions and will feature "victory detox," a type of therapy based on research studies performed around the county.

According to Modern Psychiatry and Wellness, these medical therapies are more effective and tolerable for outpatients going through detox for opioid pain medication and heroin.

The center will provide walk-in assessments, ambulatory detox and medication management, individual therapy, outpatient therapy and weekly care. The center will also offer brain re-training and smart phone apps to assist in the recovery process.

"Our goal is to help provide another comprehensive treatment option for those who suffer from opioid addiction," said Director of the center Dr. Quinton Moss.

The ribbon cutting ceremony for the opening of the center is June 25. The center is located at 25 N F Street.
