CORE Medical Clinic: Pioneering Solutions for Opioid and Alcohol Treatment in Sacramento


CORE Basics

CORE Medical Clinic tackles opioid addiction and alcoholism with innovative treatments in Sacramento.

CORE Medical Clinic in Sacramento, California, stands at the forefront of addressing the dual challenge of opioid addiction and alcoholism. Our comprehensive approach offers hope and healing to those grappling with these intertwined issues.

Understanding the Link Between Opioid Addiction and Alcoholism

Opioid addicts often face a concurrent struggle with alcohol, a fact backed by genetic studies. At CORE Medical Clinic, we recognize the complexity of this dual addiction and provide tailored treatments that address both issues simultaneously.

Why CORE Medical Clinic

Our clinic specializes in Medication for Opioid Use Disorder (MOUD), offering treatments like Methadone and Buprenorphine. We emphasize the risks associated with certain alcohol dependency medications like Naltrexone for those in MOUD treatment, ensuring our patients' safety and well-being.

Disulfiram: An Effective Tool in Our Arsenal

CORE Medical Clinic utilizes Disulfiram (Antabuse) for patients battling both opioid addiction and alcoholism. This medication, known for its strong deterrent effect against alcohol consumption, is a key component of our treatment plan.

Rigorous Monitoring and Support

We maintain strict protocols for patients with alcohol in their system, ensuring safe and effective dosing. Our goal is to provide a structured environment conducive to recovery, including options for those needing immediate attention.

Addressing Alcohol Addiction Head-On

For patients physically addicted to alcohol, CORE Medical Clinic offers comprehensive care, including 24-hour observation and treatment for conditions like Delirium Tremens (DTs). We collaborate with community resources to ensure the best care for our patients.

Integrating Support Systems

Recognizing the importance of community support, we encourage participation in AA or NA groups alongside our MOUD program. This integrated approach fosters a supportive environment essential for long-term recovery.


CORE Medical Clinic in Sacramento is dedicated to providing innovative and compassionate care for individuals struggling with opioid addiction and alcoholism. Our multidisciplinary approach, coupled with state-of-the-art treatment options, makes us a leading choice for those seeking a path to recovery.
