Updates on Apex!


Our Plymouth building

Are you aware Apex has a Livonia office? Or a Plymouth office? If our  Westland office seems too congested or overwhelming for you, Livonia or Plymouth may be a great alternative.

They are both small, cozy offices. Some information on each is listed below.

Livonia is located on 17940 Farmington Rd.,  Suite 280. This is located just off of Curtis road. The Livonia phone number is 734 466-3311, if no one answers please leave a message and someone will call you back, as there is not someone in the office 24/7.

Therapists  at our Livonia office include: Robert Graham, Glenna Washburn, Judy Anderson, Ricky Jentons. Dr. Joseph is the psychiatrist and she is in one Saturday a month. Ricky is in Monday-Thursday;  he sees children and adults.

Our Plymouth office is located 199 N. Main Street, ste 202, Plymouth, MI. Sharon Garant is always accepting intakes, she sees clients aged 18+ and is in the office Tuesday- Thursday. She has day and night time appointments available.

Kristin Hammoud is in the office on Wednesdays from 9:30-5:30. She is an APRN, meaning she can prescribe medication and counsel clients. Kris does not see ADD patients and has much experience with PTSD, depression, substance abuse, and mood disorders.

Apex Doctors working with SUBOXONE for Heroin Treatment

What is Suboxone?

Suboxone is used to treat opiate addiction. Suboxone contains a combination of buprenorphine and naloxone. Buprenorphine is an opioid medication. Buprenorphine is similar to other opioids such as morphine, codeine, and heroin however, it produces less euphoric (“high”) effects and therefore may be easier to stop taking. Naloxone blocks the effects of opioids such as morphine, codeine, and heroin. If Suboxone is injected, naloxone will block the effects of buprenorphine and lead to withdrawal symptoms in a person with an opioid addiction. When administered under the tongue as directed, naloxone will not affect the actions of buprenorphine.

What Are the Treatments for Heroin Addiction?

For Heroin Treatment Michigan, Treatment for Heroin Michigan, or Heroin Treatment anywhere, Apex Behavioral Health is your answer. At Apex Behavioral Health, our doctors prescribe SUBOXONE.

Suboxone, also known as Buprenorphine is a more recently approved treatment for heroin addiction (and other opiates). Compared with methadone, buprenorphine produces less risk for overdose and withdrawal effects and produces a lower level of physical dependence, so patients who discontinue the medication generally have fewer withdrawal symptoms than those who stop taking methadone. The development of buprenorphine and its authorized use in physicians’ offices give opiate-addicted patients more medical options and extend the reach of addiction medication. Its accessibility may even prompt attempts to obtain treatment earlier. However, not all patients respond to buprenorphine and some continue to require treatment with methadone.
