About Us/FAQ


ETANO Center opened its doors in 2005. Our goal is to provide confidential and professional services to our clients, free of judgement. We strive to maintain a clinic environment that is meant for healing. ETANO Center's specialty lies in rehabilitation services for those who suffer from opioid addiction. Our Tucson clinic offers medication-assisted treatment services, which includes: counseling, group therapy, education, laboratory services, peer support, and medical services. In addition, we closely collaborate with an extensive network of recovery service providers to enhance and reinforce our rehabilitation treatments.

We are licensed by the Arizona Department of Health Services (ADHS) and federally by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Service Administration (SAMHSA). We are accredited by Commission on Accreditation for Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) and received their highest standard Gold Seal accreditation.

Part of our philosophy is to remain up to date with the ever-changing issues of opioid addiction. At the national level we are members of the American Association for the Treatment of Opioid Dependence (AATOD). And within our state we are proud members of the Arizona Opioid Treatment Coalition (AOTC). These memberships, along with other organizations are part of where we strive to advocate for addiction treatment, remain up to date with changes, and improve our services for you.

We are easy to find and located near convenient bus lines. All services are provided either on site or by referral. Call us to start your recovery process.


What Is The Process For Entering Treatment?

First, a prospective client will undergo a screening by telephone. If it appears the client is appropriate for rehabilitation treatment at ETANO Center, she or he will be scheduled for an intake appointment in our Tucson clinic. If the client is not appropriate for services through ETANO Center, a referral to appropriate services will be made.

How Much Does Treatment Cost?

ETANO Center remains one of the lowest cost private clinics in the Tucson area. Most clients report the cost of rehabiliation treatment is far less than the cost of their addiction. Treatment costs vary depending on the type of addiction and treatment options. Please call or send us a request for pricing.

Does ETANO Center Take Insurance?

ETANO Center accepts MEDICARE PART B and TRICARE insurances for our Methadone program. For those with other health insurances we can provide clients with the appropriate billing information to submit claims early, upon request.

Do You Treat Anything Besides Opiate Addiction?

ETANO Center is licensed for counseling and medication management. We offer rehabilitation programs to address alcohol dependence.  Both medication assisted treatment, individual counseling and group therapy are available. We offer revocation services for DUI’s.

What Is Methadone?

Methadone is an FDA approved medication used to treat opioid dependence. It is used to help individuals addicted to Oxycontin, Percocet, Oxycodone, Hydrocodone, Vicodin, Codeine, Heroin, Fentanyl, and other opioids. Here at ETANO Center, each person’s medication level is determined individually based on a variety of factors such as: opioid tolerance, addiction history, metabolism, age, and other factors. A therapeutically appropriate dose of methadone will eliminate the harsh opioid withdrawal symptoms, suppress cravings for opioids, and attenuate or block euphoric effects should someone relapse.

What Is Suboxone (Buprenorphine)?

Like Methadone, Buprenorphine is a long acting medication taken once daily to treat opioid dependence. Some medications that contain Buprenorphine are: Suboxone, Suboxone Film, Zubsolv, Subutex, Bunavail, Sublocade, and others. Buprenorphine is a partial opioid agonist and is another option for individuals with an opioid addiction. Based on the assessment, our doctors will determine if you meet criteria for Buprenorphine treatment. Call our clinic or fill out and submit a form to see if you qualify for buprenorphine treatment.

What Is Vivitrol (Naltrexone)?

Naltrexone is an FDA approved opioid antagonist medication used to treat alcohol and opioid addiction. Some medications that contain Naltrexone are Vivitrol and ReVia. Vivitrol is a once a month injectable medication. A long period of opioid abstinence is required to start Vivitrol. An oral tablet of Naltrexone called ReVia is also available option. Call our clinic or fill out and submit a form to see if you qualify for Naltrexone treatment.

What Will My Dose Of Medication Be?

Each clients’ dose is individualized based on a variety of factors such as: opioid tolerance, addiction history, metabolism, age, and other factors. The therapeutic dose is found when a client has 24-36 hours of relief from opioid withdrawal symptoms and relief from cravings. Clients will not feel euphoria or “high” from the medication, nor sedation at a therapeutic dose. The goal is to feel normal and be functional.

Is Treatment Confidential?

Yes. Your treatment records are protected by law. We comply with HIPAA and 42 CFR Part 2 confidentiality laws. The only cases where records are shared are during a medical emergency, a release of information is signed, cases of neglect or endangerment, crimes committed at the clinic, and if records are subpoenaed.

How Long Will I Be In Treatment?

As an outpatient treatment center, adequate time is required for recovery goals to be met and each person is treated on an individual basis. Time in treatment is determined between the individual client and the treatment center staff and can be as long as clinically appropriate. The focus of treatment is to stabilize physically, psychologically, and socially. Clients should have adequate stability in their home and personal life before beginning the tapering process. Clinical research shows that time in treatment is correlated with successful recovery outcomes.

What Tests Are Required In Treatment?

Drug tests in the form of urine or saliva tests are required in treatment. These tests come randomly for each client but at minimum on a monthly basis. More tests can be ordered as necessary by clinical staff. A tuberculosis skin test is required during intake and on an annual basis. A one-time blood test is performed at intake.

What Is The Process For Guest/Courtesy Dosing?

The cost of guest dosing at our facility is $20/day. Records from your current treatment program are required. Guest dosing should be coordinated at least 2 days prior to attending. Confidential treatment records can be faxed to (520) 325-3379.
