AppleGate Recovery


AppleGate Recovery provides treatment to individuals struggling with opiate addiction through five locations in Arkansas, Louisiana, and Texas. The facility located in Bossier City, La., offers medication-assisted treatment and outpatient counseling.


Before beginning treatment, all clients complete a comprehensive assessment that includes a medical history, social assessment, lab tests, and a consultation with a physician. Based on assessment findings, the center’s clinical team determines the most appropriate course of medication-assisted treatment. As part of Buprenorphine treatment, in addition to Suboxone AppleGate Recovery uses Zubsolv and Bunavail.

All individualized treatment plans incorporate one-on-one, family, and group counseling. The clinical staff utilizes modalities including motivational interviewing (MI) and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), as well as techniques intended to develop mindfulness. Additionally, clients and their families may be introduced to SMART Recovery methods.


According to the facility’s website, the treatment team includes physicians and professional substance abuse counselors.
