Yuba City, CA – This month, Wellpath Community Care Centers opened their Yuba City location, devoted to treating opioid addiction and other substance use disorders.
A virtual grand opening event will be held on January 26, 2021 – more details to come. For more information, or to receive staff media availability, contact Wanda Nelson at 858-283-8614.
Wellpath is a leading healthcare company transforming public health by delivering hope and healing to those who need it the most. “We are excited to bring our expertise to the Yuba City community and expand local treatment options for medication-assisted treatment of substance use disorders,” said Dr. Neil Schamban, President. “Wellpath is devoted to combatting the opioid crisis, along with other substance use disorders, providing the highest level of care for our patients, and helping heal the communities that are impacted by this epidemic.”
Wellpath Community Care Center’s clinicians are saving lives and are making a difference in the tragic substance use epidemic facing our nation. Our top priority is to protect the health of the Yuba City community and individuals who may be suffering from addiction disorders, including opioids. The Yuba City center offers evidence-based Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) and outpatient Substance Use Disorder programs for individuals struggling with opioids or other substances including alcohol, tobacco, methamphetamine, Fentanyl, cocaine and hallucinogens, all under one roof.
Medication-Assisted Treatment is the use of FDA-approved medications, including Suboxone, Vivitrol, and in some locations, Methadone, in combination with counseling and behavioral therapies, to provide a “whole patient” approach to the treatment of substance use disorders. A common myth of MAT is that it’s only about the medicine, but it is truly about the combination: Medicine + Counseling = Treatment.
Wellpath offers same-day admission, walk-in appointments, and a provider on-site every day of the week. Tele-health services are also available for those who cannot make it to the clinic regularly; this is especially critical in continuing to service patients during COVID-19.
In the midst of the holiday season and with a new year just around the corner, now is an especially important time when individuals with substance use disorders seek changes in their lives. Wellpath is working with the Yuba City community to provide support for these individuals when they need it the most.
