Addiction Medicine Practice Opens its 1st Opioid and Alcohol Treatment Center in Northern VA

NASHVILLE, Tenn., Feb. 12, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- SaVida Health, a leader in outpatient, medication-assisted treatment for opioid and alcohol addiction, is pleased to announce the opening of its center in Woodbridge, Virginia. SaVida is currently scheduling new patient appointments and accepts most forms of insurance including Medicaid. Learn more about opioid addiction treatment at SaVida Health's Woodbridge location by visiting us at or call us at (833) 356-4080 to make a confidential inquiry.

SaVida's Woodbridge location offers a wholistic approach to care including counseling, recovery support, and medical care delivered by licensed clinical professionals. In order to assist patients in recovery, the center's doctors and nurse practitioners prescribe and carefully manage FDA approved medications, e.g. buprenorphine and naltrexone (common brand names Suboxone, Sublocade and Vivitrol). This integrated approach to treatment is widely accepted as the most effective form of outpatient treatment for opioid and alcohol addiction today. The center has been certified by the Virginia Department of Medical Assistance (Virginia's Medicaid Program) as a preferred office-based opioid treatment (POBOT) provider.

"Northern Virginia, like so many other regions, has been dramatically impacted by the opioid crisis. Unfortunately, both misinformation and limited access to legitimate treatment options continue to be barriers to recovery for many. We couldn't be more pleased to bring SaVida's unique care model to Woodbridge or to serve those struggling with addiction here in Prince William County and Northern Virginia," said Tom Purkins, vice president and general manager of SaVida's Mid-Atlantic region.
