BAYMARK HEALTH SERVICES OPENS OPIOID ADDICTION TREATMENT CENTER IN KENTWOOD
Individualized, Evidence-Based Medication-Assisted Treatment for Opioid Addiction
LEWISVILLE, TX – BayMark Health Services announced today the opening of MedMark Treatment Centers Kentwood, its first opioid treatment program in Michigan. The clinic is located at 5500 Division Avenue S, Suite A, Kentwood, MI. MedMark Treatment Centers Kentwood will provide safe, effective medication-assisted treatment (MAT) and counseling for those struggling with opioid use disorder.
“Across the country, people are suffering from the devastating disease of addiction. The growing opioid crisis has resulted in a two-fold increase in overdose deaths in Michigan since 2012.” said David K. White, Ph.D., CEO of BayMark Health Services. “Our focus at BayMark is offering access to proven treatment modalities to as many patients in need as possible. We open programs in areas where treatment options for opioid addiction are limited and there is an identified need, and we found the Greater Grand Rapids area met these criteria.”
MedMark programs are known across the country as providers of quality, evidence-based methadone and buprenorphine treatment centers. MedMark programs also provide addiction education, relapse prevention, lab testing, coordinated care for pregnancy and linkages to community resources to assist patients on their path to recovery. Our mission is to provide comprehensive medication-assisted treatment for opioid use disorder and other health care services to foster wellness, longevity and socially responsible behavior for the patients we serve.
Chief Operating Officer Frank Baumann noted, “We are pleased to bring our treatment model to Michigan for the first time. MedMark’s medically-supervised treatment programs have provided the opportunity for meaningful recovery to thousands of Americans. Our physicians, nurses, counselors and support staff offer compassionate, respectful treatment of those struggling with opioid use disorder. We believe we can deliver a valuable service to those individuals and their families in the greater Grand Rapids area.”
