Heroin and opioid medication (pain pill) addiction can be quickly controlled and effectively treated at CAP clinics. Most patients feel understood and welcome from their first day, and after stabilizing on methadone stop abusing heroin or opioid medication. CAP clinics are licensed and accredited facilities specializing in the treatment of heroin and pharmaceutical opioid (pain pill) addiction with methadone maintenance and buprenorphine assisted treatment*
“CAP starts by giving you hope, and an escape from the seemingly hopeless downward spiral of heroin addiction. It restores order to the chaos of a life of addiction. How to pay for your next hit? Where to score? These questions no longer dominate your everyday life. Now my life revolves around family, health, work; normal concerns. CAP has done this and more for me.”
“CAP proves to be a place where people like me can receive the help we need and never be made to feel guilty or ashamed of things we have done. I just needed to put this in writing, and say “THANK YOU” to Karen (simply the best!), Dr. Showalter, Dr. Rose, Jenni, Sheila, LaDonna and Eric downstairs, Bill, Terry, Marion, Joe and Roshell upstairs, and everyone else who, though I may not know personally, I know you are behind me 100%!”
“Sick and in total despair I found CAP Chicago in the Yellow Pages…In order to truly succeed in this program, you have to really want it and I wanted it so bad it hurt. Along with my wonderful counselor and all of the amazing employees here, I’m over one year clean and sober and feeling good again.”
Our Medical Directors, of past and present, have received awards for excellence from patient advocate groups and addiction medicine professional organizations, both national and international. They were recognized not only for their respectful and effective treatment of addiction but also for their scientific research showing that heroin and opioid pain pill addiction can be stopped with methadone maintenance in almost all patients. CAP staff made this recognition possible. CAP’s professional counselors and nurses understand the variety and nature of the many difficulties faced by addicts, and enjoy being part of the recovery process for their patients.
