Press Release (ePRNews.com) - WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - Aug 18, 2017 - Dr. Michael Ligotti, CEO Whole Health, is educating the community medication assisted treatment (MAT), and the use of Suboxone in an out-patient based treatment for opiate addicted patients.
Dr. Ligotti has completed training sponsored by the American Academy of Addiction Psychiatry in the use of Suboxone for the rapid out-patient treatment of opiate addicted patients. He also has specialized training and DEA authorization as a physician offering office-based opiate detoxification using Suboxone. Dr. Ligotti is among a very small number of physicians licensed to offer this treatment in a private office-based setting.
Prior to the Drug Addiction Treatment Act (DATA) of 2000 the only out-patient based treatment for opiate-addicted patients was Methadone, which is very addicting in and of itself, and must be obtained through specific government-sponsored treatment facilities. Suboxone is one of the few approved medications for office based, rapid out-patient detoxification from opiate addiction. The use of this medication in the out-patient setting allows individuals with narcotic dependence, or addiction, to continue their lives while making positive progress towards living a drug-free lifestyle.
