Baymark Health Services Opens Applegate Recovery in Baton Rouge
Date:11/7/2018

AppleGate Recovery, a division of BayMark Health Services, announced the opening of their fourth outpatient clinic in Louisiana for the treatment of opioid addiction. Founded in Louisiana, AppleGate now has 9 locations in 5 states, providing evidence-based medication-assisted treatment (MAT) with buprenorphine or Suboxone®, in-house counseling and supportive recovery services.

“In 2017, there were 401 opioid-related deaths across Louisiana, a 150% increase over the last 5 years,” shared Dr. David Hans, President of AppleGate Recovery. “AppleGate offers individuals struggling with addiction to prescription opiates or heroin, a way out. No one has to become a statistic. We can help.”

AppleGate Recovery Baton Rouge MAT utilizes buprenorphine and buprenorphine compounds, also known by the brand names Suboxone® Zubsolv®, Bunavail®; and soon to be added medications including SublocadeTM and Vivitrol®. In addition to medication services, AppleGate provides individual and group counseling, as well as lab and case management services. Our evidence-based approach to recovery uses medication to alleviate withdrawal symptoms and cravings in conjunction with counseling to address both the causes and consequences of addiction.

Dr. Philip Isherwood, Medical Director of AppleGate Recovery noted, “We are happy to be expanding access to this treatment service in Louisiana. The state continues to experience the effects of opioid use, including growing numbers of deaths from not only heroin, but fentanyl and other synthetic opioids. As a co-founder of AppleGate Recovery, and practicing physician, I have had the opportunity to witness this treatment provide my patients a real opportunity to combat the disease of addiction and restore their lives.”

Located at 4451 Bluebonnet Blvd., Suite E, Baton Rouge, LA 70809, AppleGate Recovery Baton Rouge is open 9am-5pm Monday through Thursday and 9am-4pm on Fridays.
