The River Shore Clinic provides detox services that are medically assisted and use lesser strength opioids.

We are a methadone clinic located at 3707 N Richard St in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The River Shore Clinic in Milwaukee County provides medically supervised methadone and Suboxone (buprenorphine) maintenance treatment to individuals who are attempting to overcome an addiction to or dependence upon heroin or other opioids.

Our staff truly understands the hardship and utter despair that a person feels when struggling with an addiction. Everybody is different and so is their path to recovery. When you come to our clinic, we listen to your specific situation and adjust your recovery plan accordingly. This is all done in an environment of compassion, trust, understanding, and patience. We have helped MANY people overcome this struggle and know that recovery is VERY possible.

Methadone hydrochloride is a synthetic “opioid agonist,” which means that it acts in a way that is similar to morphine and other narcotic medications. When used in proper doses as part of a medically supervised opioid addiction treatment program, methadone blocks cravings and other withdrawal symptoms without creating the euphoric or sedative states that result from opioid abuse.

Buprenorphine is a partial opioid receptor agonist. Like methadone, buprenorphine can relieve opioid withdrawal symptoms without producing the intoxicating effects that are associated with opioid abuse. Buprenorphine was the first medication for the treatment of opioid dependence to be approved under the Drug Addiction Treatment Act of 2000.

To be eligible for this type of treatment at the River Shore Clinic, prospective patients much be at least 18 years old, and must have been addicted to or dependent upon opiates for a minimum of one year prior to seeking treatment

In 2009, one in three driving accidents are due to the influence of alcohol or substance. The dangers of alcohol and drugs are no secret. If you live in Wisconsin, please contact the River’s shore if you or anyone you know may be dealing with a drug/alcohol addiction.
