Dr. Randy Nance, MD
Dr. Nance practiced pharmacy for 4 years and family medicine for 33 years. He is a Certified Buprenorphine Physician and is committed to good health through good choices.
The Drug Addiction Treatment Act of 2000 enables qualified physicians to prescribe and/or dispense opioid medications for the purpose of treating opioid addiction from an office-based practice. This presents a very desirable treatment option for those who are unwilling or unable to seek help from stigmatizing drug treatment clinics.
The Wellness Center's program combines Suboxone with talk therapy for holistic results.
Opioid addiction is one of the most troubling health issues we have seen in a long time. Last year alone, more than 70,000 people died from drug overdoses. The overwhelming majority of them from opioids like Percocet, Oxycontin, Heroin and Fentanyl. Beyond the effects that these substances have on our world, they are also ruining lives and families in communities just like ours.
At The Wellness Center, we have set up an effective, medically-assisted treatment program for those who are caught in an opioid addiction or dependence. The program includes two major components. First, Dr. Randy Nance oversees the medical intervention through the use of suboxone, the most popular brand name medication for the treatment of opioid addiction. Additionally, the therapists at The Wellness Center oversee any therapeutic needs that are connected to the clients’ usage and addictive patterns. By working both sides of the struggle, those caught in the addiction can begin to see a pathway to freedom, restoration and safety.
If you are interested in this program for yourself or a loved one, please call us for more information.

Counseling and therapy are the process of learning new techniques to effectively deal with an addiction-free life and prevention of relapse. Also, counseling can help meet immediate goals. Counseling is imperative in a truly comprehensive plan to combat addiction.
3. Family and Friend Support
Non-addiction-related support is a reminder of what life is all about and what is preserved by treating addiction. This activity replaces time spent seeking drugs by the afflicted individual.
4. Peer Support
Help, understanding and encouragement from people who have shared similar experiences.
