Addiction Medicine

There are patients who have been on opioids or opiates such as Vicodin, Loricet, Percocet, OxyIR, Oxycontin, Kadian, Avinza, and Fentanyl patches and have developed a dependence on these medications and wish to be tapered down. Dr. Hayes, in concert with their personal physician, can manage the pain of these patients with PENS and/or acupuncture while tapering their dose. Dr. Hayes has a waiver from the DEA (Drug Enforcement Agency) to use Suboxone to aid people in reducing the withdrawal symptoms from opiates.

This is an intensive program and follows strict federal and state laws and regulations. For further information on Suboxone, please visit
