The recovery process
While recovery programs differ based on the individual needs, we have observed some predictable phases:
Heroin and prescription pain killer abuse has increased to epidemic rates, and alarmingly high rates among young people. The problem is growing and the social costs are skyrocketing.
Rates of recovery
In response to this epidemic, researchers have shown that the rates of recovery without any treatment at all are around 20%. Yet, medication assisted treatment models exceed 55% drug free. Medication assisted treatment models have been the best practice for treating opioid addictions since the models were first introduced in 1968.
The recovery program of The Life Change Center takes medication assisted treatment one step further, and includes specialized counseling in addition to medication and case management. The success rate of The Life Change Center is currently at 72%. Yes, 72% of the individuals seeking help have been able to stop using opioids within the first 60 days.
Through our years of experience we have learned to really appreciate the magnitude of difficulty related to opioid addictions.
We know about the costs and strains that this puts on people struggling with the addiction, sometimes costing hundreds of dollars per week for opioids and racking up many other expenses. We understand and have developed our program to reduce the financial obstacles of treatment admission.
The Life Change Center is a 501 (c)3 non-profit organization, and we do not have an owner or paid board to appease. Our sole focus is on providing the most effective services that we can. Based on our structure, our fees are quite low.
At The Life Change Center the fees are complete package service programs and all services (individual and group counseling, testing, medical exam, doctor visit and other services) are included in that fee.
With the exception of our Suboxone program, clients have the option to pay daily, weekly or monthly.

Our insurance billing staff will find out about your coverage benefits immediately, while you are completing the admission process.
We have trained staff to guide you through the admission process; staff that appreciates the courage it takes to take the first step.
The admission process requires three assessments:
- Substance Use Disorders with a licensed or certified counselor
- Medical history with a certified medical assistant or nurse
- Medical examination with a physician
This process can range between 1 ½ and 3 hours. It is during these assessments that you will be given many options for treatment. You will have immediate access to case management and group therapy. THERE IS NO WAITING LIST.
To make the admission process as effective as possible you will need a photo ID. Additionally, if you have other prescriptions, please bring in this information.
