NuHope is a first of its kind outpatient program for opioid use disorder that combines intensive behavioral health programs, with highly structured prescription protocols, directed and monitored by physicians. At NuHope, we provide scientific-based, physician-directed care and counseling for individuals with substance abuse disorders specific to opiate use. Our multi-disciplinary team works seamlessly under one roof to help patients get off their opiates and be functional in their communities free from the dependence of harmful medications.
Generations of medical professionals have decided on their career due to one common theme: a desire to help others. Over time, this goal becomes complicated as physicians balance the desire to help and also the desire to prevent harm. Few physicians sat in the back of their medical lecture hall and thought to themselves, “I want to write pain medications for chronic pain patients for the rest of my life,” but that has become a significant component of many practices. Every day physicians deal with the social, moral, and ethical dilemma of prescribing pain medications. Unfortunately, the opiate crisis is a complex problem that requires a complex solution. At NuHope, we strive to take these difficult situations and create a release valve for your practice. Today’s medical practices are facing increased scrutiny from state and federal regulatory bodies regarding their prescribing habits, monitoring of these habits, and compliance with laws. Most physicians do not have the time nor staff to respond to the regulatory inquiries and also continue to maintain compliance with constantly changing rules and laws. Patients become increasingly frustrated as their provider, who was once their advocate, suddenly becomes their adversary. This leads to medical board complaints, poor online reviews, and a frustrated staff.

At NuHope, we tell our patients that we want to help them “Get Back to Being You”. Our message to providers is the same. We provide scientifically based, physician-centered care for individuals with substance use disorders specific to opiate use. Our multi-disciplinary team works seamlessly under one roof to help patients get off of their opiates and be functional in their communities free from the dependence of harmful medications. We have the time and energy to have those difficult conversations with your patients in a supportive environment with healthcare professionals who are dedicating their career to treating the opiate epidemic.
Anyone can detoxify a patient off of medications, but very few can provide sustainable recovery. Our goal is to provide a humane and supervised reduction of narcotics under close supervision of a physician and medical team. We will treat the whole person, including the physical, mental, and biological factors that impact a patient’s ability to recover.
Each of you know people in your lives and in your clinics that meet the criteria of opioid use disorder. Let NuHope help you and your patients recover in a scientific and humane manner by making a call today and referring a patient over.
Let NuHope help YOU get back to being you. Let us take some of the stress of handling the constantly changing legal environment, of having complex conversations, and of dealing with frustrated patients so that you can focus on patient care specific to your training and practice.
