The Tacoma Clinic in Washington state offers treatment of opioid dependence with methadone and subutex.

We are a methadone clinic located at 9500 Front Street (Suite 100) in Lakewood, Washington. Tacoma Treatment Solutions/Lakewood Clinic in Pierce County provides medically supervised methadone maintenance and Subutex (Buprenorphine) detox 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.

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 Tacoma Treatment Solutions/Lakewood 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 the years 2007-8, Washington had the highest rate of drug users among people aged 12 and older. This statistic shows that alcohol and substance abuse is very common and you are not alone. We help people overcome their addictions everyday. Let us now help you or your loved ones.
