PLAINFIELD, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) – Hamilton Center announced the opening of its newest certified opioid treatment program, WIN Recovery in Plainfield. This clinic is the third clinic opened by Hamilton Center, after those in Terre Haute and Vincennes.

The Hendricks county clinic is awaiting Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) certification which is estimated to occur early next week. Once secured the office will be open for patients.

Hamilton Center Inc. secured a license from the state of Indiana to open the Hendricks county opioid treatment program in November, 2018; construction and renovation concluded this month. The clinical area offers six medication-dosing stations, separate drug screening rooms, one medical examination room, 14 offices and two group counseling rooms.

The clinic will provide comprehensive treatment for adults 18 years of age and older who are struggling with addiction to heroin or other opioids such as prescription pain medication. The program provides daily medication (Methadone) coupled with individual and group therapy and case management services to treat each individual’s unique needs.

“We are privileged to serve the Hendricks County community and those communities in the surrounding area,” said Melvin L Burks, CEO of Hamilton Center, Inc. “Our facility offers a professional environment where those struggling with opioid addictions can seek help and receive safe, effective treatment.”

“The combination of medication and behavioral health interventions is the most effective in combating this disease,” said D.J. Rhodes, Chief of Opioid Treatment at Hamilton Center Inc. “Opioid Use Disorder is a disease; treatment works and recovery is absolutely possible,” he added.

“Governor Eric Holcomb and I thank Hamilton Center, Inc. for helping us move closer to our goal of placing an opioid treatment program within an hour’s drive of every Hoosier,” said Douglas Huntsinger, Indiana Executive Director for Drug Prevention, Treatment and Enforcement. “As Hoosiers work to recover from this disease, it is extremely important that we continue to expand access to the full continuum of care for substance use disorder in Indiana, including access to medication for opioid use disorder.”
