This page is not for the PAR recovery center, which is on a separate page. This is aimed towards their meetings available to those on suboxone, vivitrol, or methadone treatment. They have another separate page for the clinic, which is a Methadone, Bupeneperine/Suboxone, Subutex, or Vivitrol treatment clinic. (Open mornings... weekdays 5:30am-11:00am and weekends 6:30am-10:00am) Holiday hours vary. This is for the meetings called MARA. Meetings are ONLY FOR CURRENT ACTIVE PATIENTS OF PAR, NO EXCEPTIONS and are currently held every Thursday at 7:00AM, followed by a different meeting that starts at 8:30am the same day. Medically Assisted Recovery Anonymous. Aka "M. A. R. A" It is similar to a Narcotics Anonymous meeting, but without the negative atmosphere and judgment aimed towards those on medication assisted forms of recovery. (I. E. Methadone, Suboxone, Subutex, Vivitrol) Operation PAR clinic is the BEST method of treatment for serious/heavy opiate dependencies. For those who have tried and failed at less effective treatments or rehabs, Methadone specifically could be the difference between opiate overdose (heroin, dilaudid, morphine, high dose oxycodone, fentanyl, oxymorphone/opana, or other strong opioid addictions.) However DO NOT be discouraged! Remember that they offer around THREE different types of programs. The methadone program is NOT designed for those who have a small opiate addiction. (I. E a few Lortabs/Percocets per day, etc.) Suboxone therapy at Par would usually (dependent upon your individual needs, I am not a doctor and therefore cannot offer medical advice) be a better fit for less severe or lower dose opiate addictions which also offers excellent results if you put in the effort to staying clean. Par is the answer to getting clean and staying clean and finally saying goodbye to the needle. They specialize in Opiate addictions but offer some services to those addicted to other drugs including alcoholism. This is usually in combination with opiate addiction treatment as a primary concern, for example they do not offer services to those addicted to "just" cocaine or "just" amphetamines. I am not sure about how they treat alcoholism besides Vivitrol which is a monthly injection that helps drunkards stay off the booze. PAR has helped tens of thousands of Floridians get their life back without judgment or prejudice. They will welcome you with open arms and give you a chance at most importantly.... Survival!
would have been five stars but by last counselor was a ridgid poor listener ans felt she coul bemd the rules to satisfy herself. When I learned she as an ex cop it bec. ;ame clear why her listening skillls were non existant ykt
While the program has been beneficial for a loved one, and the first counselor was good, the second one - not so much. There have been times when the lines are out the door or the clinic doesn't open on time. People who go there have other commitments which they must get to on time. If they are short staffed and aren't opening on time, they could text or do an auto-call so people will know in advance. You are charged whether you show up or not, regardless of reason. If you are sick or contagious, show up anyway or you have to pay. Where does that money go? Using insurance was discouraged. If you decide to do this, your life will be on hold because you have to go daily with the exceptions of holidays or staff retreats. They also request financial information that isn't pertinent regarding your treatment. A lot of it is very strange. People from all walks of life and a wide variety of circumstances go there for help. It is a viable option to check out if you need treatment and don't want to be admitted to rehab.
This place saved my life!!!
The staff is incredible! They help you to feel like a person again, and don't judge you while on your path to recovery
The easiest way to treat a opioid addiction. Very knowledgeable from the Dr, counselors all the way down to the receptionist
I believe this place has saved my life. I wouldn't be where I am today without it. I am thankful that it exists. The staff is friendly and very professional.
Operation PAR is available to treat opiate addiction regardless of whether you are looking to dose down,eventually becoming methadone free...or as a maintenance program. I've visited the Bradenton,Ft.Meyers,as well as Port Charlotte clinic and have never once been treated poorly or inconsiderately in any way. Now accepting Medicaid insurance has saved my life and drastically changed my lifestyle in almost every way,but only because I chose to use their program in a responsible manner. As with everything else available to assist addicts,it only works as well as the patient choses it to work. For those who want a better,more positive future....this clinic can truly assist you in doing so. The clinic is there to offer you the opportunity. How you chose to use it is totally up to you. As for me, I'm eternally grateful...as is my family after seeing the changes in me.My husband finally found the woman he married again and my children have their mother to care for them every moment of the day.
WE LOVED THIS CLINIC! WE RECENTLY MOVED TO NORTHERN CENTRAL FLORIDA AND ARE ATTENDING A DIFFERENT CLINIC, WE MISS THE STAFF & HOW THE CLINIC WAS RUN IN GENERAL. THEY ARE (OR WERE) FAMILY ORIENTED WHEN WE WENT THERE. FOR EXAMPLE, THEY SELL SNACKS & DRINKS AT THE FRONT DESK, AND PROCEEDS FROM THE SALES GO TOWARDS A CHRISTMAS PRESENTS FUND FOR ALL THE CHILDREN OF THE PEOPLE ATTENDING THE CLINIC. AT CHRISTMAS TIME THEY LET ALL THE CHILDREN OF THE PEOPLE ATTENDING THE CLINIC, PICK A CHRISTMAS PRESENT. THEY WERE SMALL GIFTS, BUT IT WAS THE POINT THAT COUNTED. THE CLINIC WE ATTEND NOW DOESN'T DO THAT AND RUN THEIR CLINIC TOTALLY DIFFERENT & MOST OF THE STAFF (NOT ALL, BUT MOST) ARE REAL JERKS (PUTTING IT NICELY). WE REALLY MISS THE STAFF. TO ALL THOSE THINKING OF ATTENDING THIS CLINIC....IF YOU TRUELY WANT HELP GETTING OFF WHATEVER YOUR DRUG OF CHOICE IS, THAN THIS CLINIC IS THE BEST CLINIC I'VE BEEN TO. I'VE GUEST DOSED AT SEVERAL DIFFERENT CLINICS IN FLORIDA & GEORGIA, AND PAR IS THE BEST BY FAR! IF YOUR INTENTIONS ARE TO GET A CHEAP OR FREE HIGH, THAN THIS PROGRAM IS NOT FOR YOU! IT IS DESIGNED FOR PEOPLE THAT WANT HELP LIVING AN ADDICTION FREE LIFE. AND FOR THOSE PLANNING ON USING THIS CLINIC AS A CHEAP/FREE HIGH, PLEASE DON'T DO IT! YOU COULD BE TAKING A PERSON'S PLACE THAT TRUELY WANTS HELP. (NOT LIKE THEY WOULD CARE ANYWAY, SINCE THEY ARE JUST LOOKING FOR THEIR NEXT FIX) ONLY DOWNFALL IS (NOTHING TO DO WITH THE CLINIC) METHADONE IS HORRIBLE! MYSELF & SEVERAL OTHER PEOPLE ATTENDING OUR CURRENT CLINIC USED TO HAVE PERFECT TEETH. NOW OUR TEETH ARE DECAYING & ARE LITERALLY FALLING OUT ONE BY ONE.
Wish I had started the program year's ago!!! Literally one of the best decision I have ever made, only wish my obgyn doctors didn't judge me so badly an threaten my chances of raising this baby! They say uts DCF approved clinic but the TRUTH is that unless u hAve $$ with a good lawyers, cHances are that dcf is chomping at the bit to take ur rights away from u an put ur child in foster care, even if you are in a treatment plan an have parenting certificates. Dcf will stop at nothing to take ur babys away forevermore! ! Tryst me I know it all too WELL. ... Mommy loves you coken Jordan. love manq
