Our Medical Services
Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT)Through the use of medication in combination with counseling and behavioral therapies, Dr. Saladino and Christian Plaza, FNP are highly trained to help sustain your recovery from substance abuse. The practitioners may prescribe buprenorphine, naloxone or suboxone to facilitate safer withdrawal by relieving symptoms and controlling cravings.
Substance Abuse Treatment PlanningSeveral questionnaires will be given to you, so your provider can evaluate the level of chemical dependence currently going on. Once the provider knows a little more about you, a treatment plan will be created. This is a master plan that will explain what's the best way to get you back on your feet.
Mental Health ManagementYour Cross Valley Health & Medicine practitioner will work with you directly to create a plan to address your mental health concerns. After the treatment plan has been mutually agreed upon, several follow up appointments will be scheduled to track your progress. If you ever feel uneasy during this process, make sure to speak to us so changes can be made.
