Services and Clinics Available

School-Based Therapy

Nazareth Child & Family Connection has an agreement with the Rowan-Salisbury and Davidson County School Systems for staff to provide therapy at the schools after an initial visit in our office. This is an effective means to ensure students get the necessary therapeutic care while minimizing time away from school. Strict confidentiality is maintained by our clinical staff, who will not talk to school personnel regarding your child without your written permission.

Suboxone Clinic

The Suboxone (buprenorphine) Clinic is available for individuals seeking a safe and proven treatment for opiate/opioid addiction. An alternative to methadone, Suboxone has a proven record as a tool for aiding addicted individuals in the initial stages of their recovery. The clinic uses a multimodal approach that brings outpatient therapies together with medication management, ensuring that both the physical and behavioral health of the individual is treated.

Outpatient Therapy

Clinicians employed by Nazareth Child & Family Connection include licensed psychiatrists, counselors, clinical social workers, and addiction specialists who work with all age groups and populations. Our goal is to match each patient’s needs with a therapist skilled in meeting those needs.
