New Destiny’s Outpatient Treatment Program
New Destiny Treatment Center provides a caring and supportive environment that offers you the best chance for a full and lasting recovery. In fact, our outpatient program is one of the oldest and most successful in Ohio. Primarily serving the Akron and Canton area, we regularly have clients seek us out far from home in the hope of finding freedom from their addiction.
Through counseling, medical monitoring, and opioid replacement therapy, we will give you the tools to overcome your addiction and get back on the road to health and happiness. Our staff of Christian doctors, nurses, counselors and administrators are all here to help and support you in your recovery. Our goal is that the tools learned and your relationship with God will last a lifetime.
Your First Day – Suboxone Orientation
During your initial appointment, you will participate in our “Suboxone Orientation.” Here, you will complete the necessary paperwork, learn about our treatment protocols and review the medically assisted treatment options available to you, including Suboxone, Sublocade and Vivitrol. You will also undergo a urine screening and bloodwork, so that our physician can assess the appropriate medical treatment for you
Our doctors are licensed to provide Medically Assisted Treatment to you. To receive your medication, you are required by law to see the physician every month during your first year of care. After year one, doctor visits will be scheduled every other month. If at any time you are experiencing difficulty or have concerns, you will have the option to see a doctor sooner.
What to Expect During Treatment
Our outpatient program is designed to give you the tools and support for sustainable sobriety. Our success stems from Medically Assisted Treatment, counseling and the healing and saving power of Jesus Christ.
Each week, you will meet with our trained and caring professional counselors for one hour. Here you will learn a variety of effective strategies, including goal setting and coping mechanisms, that will help you during your addiction recovery. Our carefully controlled plan has proven to decrease the rate of relapse.
Preventing relapse requires more than just medication and sheer will power. A good recovery plan is necessary. Our mandatory relapse prevention classes meet for six Saturdays from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm. The classes are also required if you have been with us for an extended period of time and are struggling in your recovery. Studies have shown that the longer a person is progressing in their treatment, the better chance they have for long-term recovery. Our Relapse Prevention classes provide the necessary education to give you a solid foundation on which to start your journey.
Frequently Asked Questions
As you decide on your next steps, you are sure to have plenty of questions. We’re here to make sure you have the answers you need. Below are some of the questions we get most often. But if you have a specific question, please call us at 330-825-5202.
How does Suboxone work?
Essentially, buprenorphine operates at the same receptors in the brain where opiates such as OxyContin and heroin initiate their physiological and psychological effects. Even though it mimics the same effects that people might experience when taking illegal or prescription opioids, it does not provide them with the same feelings of euphoria or relaxation. Buprenorphine prevents withdrawal symptoms in patients and also produces less physical dependence and stimulation than traditional opiates.
- A mild detoxification and withdrawal process.
- A maintenance treatment that helps provide stability.
- A lower risk is associated with this drug than there is with methadone.
- It is safer than prescription opioids, which means that overdosing is unlikely.
- It is long-lasting once patients have entered the maintenance portion of their treatment.
- Patients do not have to make daily trips to a clinic or doctor’s office to obtain their medication.

WHAT DOSE OF SUBOXONE SHOULD I EXPECT?
Suboxone doses can start at a maximum 12 mg/day. 8 mg/day is the most common outcome for new clients.
WILL I HAVE TO TAKE SUBOXONE FOREVER?
No. Unlike Methadone, the dose of Suboxone you are prescribed only decreases. For most clients, over any significant span of time, you will be taking less Suboxone, not more.
IS MY TREATMENT PRIVATE AND CONFIDENTIAL?
Your privacy is completely valued, and you need not be concerned that you or your family member’s privacy will be breached during the course of treatment.
