Learn about this doctor

Care Philosophy

Perhaps the key to the success of Dr. Young's program is his direct and swift approach. Non-narcotic addiction therapy or pain control is treated as a medical condition with psychological, social, and financial complication and NOT as a weakness of character. After an initial and extensive intake process and induction of the treatment program, patients work closely with Dr. Young to determine proper dosage, and treatment commences with monthly visits. Monthly urine testing and weekly counseling sessions (such as with Narcotics Anonymous, or NA), are required.Read more

Dr. Young says...

Our medical practice is created to:

  • Treat patients with narcotic addiction, and
  • Treat patients with chronic pain complaints using buprenorphine, without the use of narcotic medication (including those patients currently using narcotic medication for pain control).

Dr. Young's program is one of the most successful treatment centers in the Inland Northwest, serving patients from Northern Idaho and the Spokane regions. Nevertheless, due to the overall success and reputation of this fine program, patients from as far away as Seattle, Lewiston/Moscow, and even North Dakota have found us.
