ABOUT AEGIS TREATMENT CENTERS, LLC.
Headquartered in Los Angeles, Aegis Treatment Centers operates 25 outpatient addiction treatment clinics around California. Like all Aegis centers, the Modesto clinic offers medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for adults struggling with opioid abuse. According to its website, most clients are over 18 with a history of at least one year of opioid dependency.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
The admission process takes two to three hours. Walk-ins are accepted, but Aegis advises potential clients to schedule an appointment, if possible. All clients receive a medical examination on admission and at regular intervals thereafter.
Aegis facilities use Suboxone and methadone programs to assist individuals struggling with opioid addiction. In California, Aegis of Modesto is among the 25.2 percent of facilities to provide Suboxone and 10.5 percent of facilities to utilize methadone.
Treatment programs range in length, from 21 days for short-term detox to over 18 months for extended treatment. According to its website, the most successful model is a short-term treatment that lasts between six and 18 months.
Along with MAT, Aegis also offers intensive, evidence-based therapy, social work, case management, and education for its clientele. While medications stabilize clients in the short term, the center's therapeutic services treat the addiction and help address any underlying co-occurring disorders.
Counseling covers topics including PTSD, ADHD, anger, grief, stress, and other co-occurring disorders. In addition, social workers assist clients with any judicial matters, relationships with families and friends, referrals to community resources, and any other matters beyond the facility itself that might support sustained recovery.
Aegis's treatment team includes physicians, dispensary nurses, medical assistants, and social workers. The single alum polled by Rehabs.com to date gave the facility two out of five stars for its staff's level of training and experience.
WHAT ALUMNI SAY
The single alum polled by Rehabs.com to date gave mixed feedback. Though this former client gave the facility four stars for treatment effectiveness, a perfect five stars for its counseling options, and wrote, "The councillors are very helpful and caring with their individual patients," they also indicated that they would not recommend the program. "Its money driven...if you don't have payment when it's due they put you on immediate fee detox," the wrote. The alum also gave three stars for its family participation, two stars for its ability to treat co-occurring disorders, and one star for its holistic offerings.
Secondary sites yielded mostly positive feedback at the time of this writing, with a single three-star review on YellowPages.com, and on Google, the facility received a 3.9 out of five-star average rating based on 15 reviews.
However, the Google reviews were polarized, consisting of 11 five-star ratings and four one-star reviews, which variously cited rude front office staff and described the center as "severely understaffed," with "judgemental counselors."
The positive reviewers on both Google and YellowPages.com repeatedly noted that the facility had helped them to stop taking opiates, saving their lives. "Been going there almost 2 years and has gotten me completely off heroin/opiates and even my other drug addictions. Life changing. I would highly recommend. Give it a chance," J.C. wrote in a representative review on Google.
In isolated criticisms in otherwise positive reviews, alumni posting on these secondary sites raised concerns about client confidentiality and the possibility of remaining addicted to methadone once the primary opiate addiction had passed.
WHAT STAFF SAY
Modesto facility staff on Indeed gave mostly positive feedback at the time of this writing, as four staff members offered an average rating of 3.75 out of five stars. The reviewers repeatedly praised the management and their fellow staff. "A day at work includes meeting with Patients and trying to assist them in their efforts to adapt to a drug free lifestyle," one reviewer wrote in a particularly descriptive review.
Aegis accepts Medi-Cal and Medicare and is an approved provider for major HMOs, PPOs, and independent practice associations such as Kaiser Permanent, Health Net, and United Health. For self-paying clients, there's a sliding fee scale that offers up to a 50 percent discount on the official rate. The single alum polled by Rehabs.com to date gave the facility only one out of five stars for its affordability.

Definitely try the 21 day detox program first before signing on for the maintenance program. Keep with your counseling appointments and Dr appointments
