Opiate addiction affects all aspects of the person: their mind, their body and their sprit. A holistic approach to overcoming addiction considers all of these needs.

We draw upon traditional and alternative approaches to help you heal mind, body and spirit while developing healthy coping skills.
Thousands of fewer patients die from an overdose when cannabis is an option in their treatment plan. At Blue Door, our physicians have successfully used cannabis as an exit strategy for opioid dependence. Cannabis is not the right answer for all patients, but it shows incredible promise as a key option in treatment plans.
We don’t view cannabis as a drug – we view it as a natural treatment. A look into the science shows us that the opiate and cannabis receptors are expressed in the same areas, with the only key difference being that cannabis doesn’t affect breathing, which is how opiate overdose deaths occur. Cannabis is an obvious solution to use for withdrawal symptoms. Research shows that some cannabinoids can even help with cravings.

We include family and friends as essential parts of the team to provide holistic care to all those affected. This includes including the patient’s support system in the initial treatment plan, providing family therapy as the patient receives therapy and relying on the support system to help maintain healthy lifestyle choices long term. At Blue Door, the patient’s support system is never left in the dark, shut out or unaware of what is happening with their loved one. At the commencement of treatment, patients agree to give permission to their support system to be included in their care and have access to the patient’s medical information from our clinic. This ensures that we consider the safety of the patient and include the support system while not violating HIPAA regulations, which often serve as a barrier to family involvement.
This can be a challenge. We can’t force anyone to get help.
