My Daughter’s Journey To Recovery

When I found out my daughter had an opiate addiction, I was blind-sided. She was 24 years old, a great student, a talented cook, and the last person anyone would suspect to be an opioid addict. Her addiction really began to snowball after college when she had a major surgery and was prescribed Percocet. She began to spiral out of control and eventually moved back home. We were told her options were either Vivitrol or a Suboxone® clinic. So, I called The COAT Center of Pittsburgh. They were very understanding and set an appointment for that day. I remember my daughter saying, “Mom, do I have to do this?  Can I go tomorrow?” And I replied, “No, we’re going right now, they’re waiting for us.”

” I Got My Daughter Back. She’s Been Given A Second Chance.”

When we got to The COAT Center of Pittsburgh, the staff immediately welcomed us. They did their initial consultation and gave us her Suboxone® prescription. At home, I literally had to hold her arms and watch her put that sublingual strip under her tongue. As soon as the strip had dissolved, she said, “Mom, I actually feel pretty good.” COAT’s Confidential Outpatient Addiction Treatment provides professional and judgement-free treatment that allows patients to maintain a balance with work and family commitments. Their drug addiction recovery program includes in-depth counseling, board-certified physicians, and compassionate staff who will provide individualized treatment plans. They create a safe and confidential environment for a successful journey to recovery. I am so grateful to The COAT Center of Pittsburgh for giving my child a second chance at life.
