Master Center for Addiction Medicine’s mission is to define excellence and compassion in treating people suffering from heroin and opioid addiction in Hampton, VA.

By providing a personalized and comprehensive outpatient plan, Master Center brings the power of evidence-based care to addiction treatment — creating a bridge from medical stabilization to long-term recovery.

What patients often notice first about Master Center in Hampton, VA is the compassion of our professionals and staff, many of whom openly share their own addiction recovery stories with patients in need of encouragement. 

Just as crucial is our addiction medicine team’s medical expertise, vast experience, and innovative approach. 

Dr. James Thompson, co-founder and chief medical officer at Master Center, spent years in community-based addiction treatment programs helping patients whom others were unwilling to accept. In the process, Dr. Thompson developed effective, practical, and inexpensive approaches to drug and alcohol dependence. 

Our patients now benefit from those years of work through the Master Center Detox Program – a safe, reliable, flexible, and effective treatment program for addiction to heroin, opiates, and every other class of addictive drugs.

About Our Outpatient Opiate and Heroin Detox Program in Hampton, VA

Master Center’s Ambulatory Detox Program is a 30-day experience that begins with a focus on physical comfort and patient safety. 

Our medical providers use the simplest and most effective medicines to treat and prevent opioid withdrawal symptoms while the patient adjusts to becoming drug-free. We primarily use buprenorphine to treat opiate withdrawal symptoms. 

Master Center patients experience minimal physical discomfort and usually, within a week or so, are free of illicit opiates — and ready to begin life again.

While the physical process of getting clean is critical, it’s the emotional, psychological, and spiritual journey that leads to lasting recovery from opiate addiction. 

Our Detox program integrates education, counseling, and coaching from the onset of treatment to ensure long-lasting recovery.

Master Center introduces patients to all evidenced-based treatment tools.

  • Addiction education
  • Addiction recovery coaching
  • Individual and group therapy
  • Addiction psychiatry
  • Practical skill-building
  • Psychological counseling
  • Personal accountability

Upon completing our detox program, we invite each patient to continue in an ongoing treatment program at Master Center, including our Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP), Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT), or other multidisciplinary programs. 

Most patients choose to continue their ongoing recovery from opiate and heroin addiction with us after detox is complete.

Why Choose Master Center to Treat Opiate Addiction in Hampton, VA?

Master Center stands apart as an addiction treatment program that addresses the heart, mind, and body of the patient struggling with substance use disorder. 

Our treatment plans draw on evidence-based, multidisciplinary approaches and are individually tailored to each patient’s specific needs.

Our clinical and medical expertise is first-rate. But for the patient, our proficiency is often overshadowed by the very real sense of empathy they feel when they first enter our doors.

Getting clean through a Medically Managed Withdrawal (Detox) program is a crucial first step in the quest to recover from opiate or heroin addiction. Do not go through this process alone or let your loved one make the mistake of underestimating the power of addiction. 

Attempting to quit heroin or opiates on your own is extremely difficult. 

What makes it even more challenging is that physical withdrawal symptoms are the easy part compared to the ongoing struggle to stay away from opiates — or avoiding the pitfall of switching to a new drug. 

Medically assisted detox is considerably safer and easier. 

You — or your loved one — are far more likely to succeed in the battle against opioid dependence with our expert team’s help. Master Center offers ongoing support for the journey towards recovery, significantly increasing the likelihood of long-term success.

Our Heroin Detox Approach

Our heroin and opioid detox treatments combine drug therapy that assists with physical withdrawal management and professional counseling. 

Once we thoroughly assess our patients, we start a Buprenorphine taper, which eases withdrawal symptoms in minutes. 

Some patients require ongoing medication-assisted treatment through drugs like Naltrexone or Suboxone. These medications may be administered daily, weekly, or monthly. 

Our path to overcoming an addiction to heroin puts peer coaching, education, and therapy at the center of recovery.

Addiction to drugs is a lifelong battle. Once the physical effects of the drugs have worn off, the mental challenge of staying clean has only just begun. 

Patients also have the opportunity to meet with a counselor and attend group therapy sessions. 

Every patient will work with a Recovery Coach throughout their time with us, and we utilize recovery coaches as integral parts of our treatment plan.
