BayMark Health Services Opens AppleGate Recovery In Oakdale, LA

AppleGate continues to expand accessibility to treatment in underserved areas across Louisiana.

AppleGate Recovery, a BayMark Health Services Company, announced the opening of a physician’s office-based opioid treatment facility in Oakdale, Louisiana. AppleGate Recovery Oakdale, a satellite office for the Lake Charles location, will provide proven medication-assisted treatment (MAT) with buprenorphine or Suboxone® by prescription along with counseling. AppleGate was founded in Louisiana in 2008, and has expanded across the state and the country, now providing care for individuals struggling with opioid addiction at 18 clinics in 8 states, including 6 in Louisiana.

“AppleGate Recovery was founded with the goal of providing patients comprehensive, individualized treatment for opioid addiction. As the opioid crisis continues unabated there has never been a greater need,” said Mike Saul, Division President of AppleGate Recovery. “Time and time again we have seen that when patients are provided a combination of medication, counseling and other support services, they can recover. Now the focus is on bringing treatment options to areas of the community that are currently underserved, helping patients identify what recovery looks like for them and how we can help them get there.”

AppleGate Recovery medical providers utilize buprenorphine and buprenorphine compounds, also known by the brand names Suboxone® Zubsolv®, Bunavail® to help patients control withdrawal symptoms and cravings for opioids. In addition to medication services, AppleGate provides in house counseling, lab services and case management. This proven treatment model addresses both the physical symptoms and the mental and emotional aspects of addiction.

Chief Executive Officer David K. White, Ph.D. shared, “BayMark, through our various treatment brands, focuses on the goal of improving access to the right treatment type for each patient we serve. Our expansion in Louisiana is a part of that focus, and we’ll continue to work to address areas of the state in need of meaningful, effective treatment options. In addition to office-based outpatient treatment, BayMark offers more structured MAT with methadone, as well as both inpatient and outpatient withdrawal management options in Louisiana. Regardless of where our patients are at in their journey, BayMark can offer help and hope.”
