Comprehensive Healthcare’s Opioid Treatment Program (OTP) formerly known as “the Methadone Program” is expanding its provision of Medications to treat Opioid Use Disorders (MOUD) in Yakima and now includes Suboxone services.
Suboxone (buprenorphine with naloxone) is a medication used to help individuals with an opioid use disorder by blocking the addictive effects of opioid medications like oxycodone and hydrocodone and street drugs such as heroin and fentanyl. The OTP has medical providers, substance use disorder professionals and trainees, Registered Nurses, a Medical Assistant and a peer support specialist who provide assessments and medication dosing alongside group and individual sessions.
“The expansion of our OTP to include Suboxone services is an added benefit to clients as they will be able to receive more dynamic, comprehensive services all in one location,” says Jodi Daly, President and CEO, Comprehensive Healthcare

“We truly wrap-around our clients. We have such a dynamic team because we want to be able to provide exactly what is needed from the moment someone is ready start their journey to living substance-free, to recovery and beyond,” said Daly.
