Anchor Medical is committed to battling the opioid epidemic that is plaguing our area. We use the most up to date evidence-based treatment modalities as set forth by the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA)
These certifications are not just indicative of the knowledge needed to provide top-of-the-line care, but the ambition and commitment to do so.
Patients with other co-occurring conditions or dual diagnoses are not discriminated against at our practice.
We strive to treat the entire patient rather than addressing only a small portion of their overall needs.
We also provide primary care for medication-assisted treatment (MAT) patients who wish to take advantage of these services. This is all completed at the same visit so there is no need for extra appointments.
Anchor Medical works closely with area counseling providers to bring you easily accessible services.
Beautiful Minds and Compass Counseling both offer services directly from our office for your convenience.
Anchor Medical has an on-site case manager to help you locate and utilize resources that combat biological, psychological, and sociological barriers to getting your life back on track.
We try to ensure the online forms are constantly accessible and easy to use. However, if you are having issues accessing or submitting forms please let us know. We may not be able to correct the issue immediately, but we will work towards a remedy. You are also always welcome to stop by during business hours and pick up hard copies of any forms you may need.
Unfortunately, if you do not have a valid state-issued photo ID we are unable to see you. A photo ID helps us to ensure everyone is honest when it comes to their identity and keeps us all protected. Pharmacies also require a photo ID to pick up treatment medications. We are unable to accept photocopies as these are easily tampered with. Even if you do not have a driver's license the DMV can issue you an ID card. Please visit their website under "not for federal identification" card requirements for more information about obtaining an ID card.
We understand that sometimes patients have transportation issues. We ask that you contact our office ASAP to let us know you are running late and we will do our best to work you in. Unfortunately, if you are going to be more than 15 minutes late we may have to reschedule your appointment for another time/date. If you are habitually late or if you are a no-show for two or more appointments we may not be able to reschedule you.
NARCAN® is a potentially lifesaving medication designed to help reverse the effects of an opioid overdose (including heroin, fentanyl, and prescription opioid medications) in minutes. Since most opioid overdoses occur in the home and are most often witnessed, having a NARCAN® rescue kit nearby can make all the difference.
If someone you know takes opioids or prescription opioids, such as oxycodone or hydrocodone for pain, be prepared for a possible life-threatening opioid overdose emergency.
Naloxone quickly reverses an overdose by blocking the effects of opioids. It can restore normal breathing within 2 to 3 minutes in a person whose breathing has slowed or even stopped, as a result of an opioid overdose. More than one dose of naloxone may be required when stronger opioids like fentanyl are involved.
Concerned citizens should also carry Narcan. With over 100,000 overdose deaths in 2021, everyone is affected by this epidemic. Bystanders were present in more than one in three overdoses involving opioids. With the right tools, bystanders can act to prevent overdose deaths. Anyone can carry naloxone, give it to someone experiencing an overdose, and potentially save a life. Naloxone won’t harm someone if they’re overdosing on drugs other than opioids, so it’s always best to use it if you think someone is overdosing.
Just stop in our office or by one of our community events and we will give you Narcan for FREE. There is a short form you must fill out and we will complete a short training on how to properly use it.
We will train you on how to use Narcan in the event of an emergency. You may also visit the Narcan website for this instructional video.
