We live in a time in which addiction to opioids, alcohol and other substances has
reached epidemic proportions. Even when addicts are able to achieve sobriety, they face
grave difficulty in maintaining it; often at the expense of relationships, financial stability, and sadly, their own lives.

There’s new hope and help on the horizon: Dr. Joseph Russo, Executive Medical
Director and CEO of Saved from Addiction, Inc., and Medical Director and Co-Founder
of The Recovery Center of Westport, has made the decision to join forces with Maud
Purcell, Founder and Executive Director of The Life Solution Center of Darien, a
collaborative community of professionals providing multidisciplinary answers to life’s
problems, so as to best combat the addictions epidemic.

Saved from Addiction’s philosophy is based upon respect and compassion for the client,
while providing holistic and cutting-edge assessment and treatment options for both
substance abuse and dual-diagnosis disorders. Most exciting of all, Saved From
Addiction tackles treatment compliance – a major barrier to success and ongoing
abstinence – head-on, utilizing a range of approaches including the following:

  • Vivitrol, Antabuse and oral Naltrexone monitoring

  • Suboxone, Subutex and Zubsolv maintenance

  • The ground-breaking and newly FDA-approved Probuphine Implant, which
    solidly and steadily stems opioid cravings for up to one full year or more,
    with no risk of non-compliance.

  • Safe, efficient and dignity based, in-home alcohol and drug detoxification.

On 6/20/2016, Dr. Russo was the first physician in New England to administer the Probuphine Implant treatment and it was aired of ABC News the next day. Saved From Addiction remains the Northeast pioneer and Center of Excellence in providing this specialized and life-saving option.

In addition to remaining on the cutting-edge addictions technology, Saved From Addiction’s highly skilled and experienced team of professionals works synergistically to help their clients restore physical, emotional and spiritual well-being, and most importantly, their dignity. The SFA team invites you, as patients, practitioners, and community members to join them in this effort.

In these uncertain times of the COVID-19 crisis, your mental health and well-being are more important than ever.

Many of our practitioners are happy to conduct video, FaceTime or telephone sessions in order to provide you with safe and effective continuity of care.
