Our first clinic, Fairfax Methadone Treatment Center (FMTC), opened in September 1992 and was the first private outpatient methadone program in the Commonwealth of Virginia and the first such outpatient program, public or private, in Fairfax County. WMTC opened three years later, followed by RMTC in Raleigh, NC. The Richmond center opened in 1999 followed by the Virginia Beach center in late 2000.
Our program specializes in treatment of opioid addiction by assisting individuals who are physically dependent on substances such as heroin, morphine, Dilaudid, Percodan, Oxycotin and other narcotics. We offer both detoxification and maintenance programs. The program’s medical director will decide, in consultation with the patient, which program best suits the patient’s needs. The state, the Center for Substance Abuse Treatment, and the Drug Enforcement Administration license all components. In Virginia, the state’s Board of Pharmacy also licenses the clinics. Each clinic has a Medical Director, who is a specialist in addiction medicine, and is staffed by qualified professionals. All of our clinics have been CARF inspected and have received accreditation.
