Fritz Clinic staff and physicians will continue their good work under the brand name AppleGate Recovery.

BayMark now operates more than 70 OBOT programs across 19 states providing outpatient treatment with buprenorphine and buprenorphine compounds such as, Suboxone®. The BayMark OBOT programs provide comprehensive, individualized treatment plans that alleviate physical withdrawal symptoms and psychological cravings in support of achieving long-term recovery.
