The treatment team consists of experienced physicians and specialists, as well as staff members who are available 24 hours a day.  The major difference between most addiction centers and The Gittens Clinic is your care is performed or under constant supervision of a medical doctor.

If you know someone who is a drug addict, the best that you could do is take them to the Gittens Clinic. Based on the severity of the case, doctor Dr. Carl Gittens is going to custom design his or her treatment plan. Dr. Carl will clearly analyze individual cases of drug abuse and explore the reasons for their addiction. By delving into the root cause of the problem, they provide beetter treatment that will have a long term effect. With the right combination of medication and the counseling, improvement can be seen in patients at the early stages of Suboxone treatment.
