ABOUT PROGRESSIVE MEDICAL SPECIALISTS INC

Progressive Medical Specialists is a private methadone maintenance facility located in Pittsburgh, Penn. The outpatient center focuses on treating adults with opioid addiction through Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT). Progressive Medical Specialists offers individual and group counseling as well.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

Progressive Medical Specialists works to treat adults with substance abuse issues by providing daily methadone doses, individual and group counseling, and education on the disease of addiction. It's one of 124 methadone maintenance centers across the state of Pennsylvania (26 percent). Treatment time is based on individual needs.

The facility has four main goals: preventing the onset of withdrawal from opiates for 24 hours or more; reducing or eliminating cravings for opiates; blocking the effects of any illicitly-acquired, self-administered opioids; and increase in functioning of daily life activities.

The staff also provides referrals to Narcotics Anonymous and Alcoholics Anonymous.

STAFF CREDENTIALS

The center has a staff of licensed clinical and medical professionals who are able to offer and regulate methadone dosages. The facility is also accredited through the Joint Commission Accredited Behavioral Health Organization, among the only 21 percent of Pennsylvania facilities to receive such licensing.
