“It's Worth Starting Today.”
Curednation is a telemedicine provider specializing in opioid addiction treatment. In today’s health care landscape, it’s more important than ever to dismantle the idea that addiction is a personal failing or something to be ashamed of.
We know that addiction is a chronic disease rather than a personal choice, and we should treat it with the same dignity and respect as any other illness. A part of doing that requires us to reevaluate traditional practices of opioid addiction treatment. In doing so, Curednation is making room for approaches that give our patients more control and empowers them to WANT to do the work.

Over the course of my career, I have served a variety of populations from the indigent at an inner-city safety net hospital in Kansas City to our Nation’s veterans at multiple VA hospitals in Kansas City and Arizona for over 7 years. I possess nearly 10 years as a Certified Diabetes Care and Education Specialist and have more recently found that this translates very well to the field of Addiction Medicine, utilizing many of the same techniques of motivational interviewing, empathetic and active listening, and education to achieve rapport and trust with patients, and to empower them to make necessary changes in their lives.

A huge part of healing is having a disarming space to do it in, which is why we offer our services virtually. We know that not everyone is comfortable coming into a traditional treatment setting, which frequently prevents them from starting or sticking to it.
We find that people recover best when they have more control over their care and can easily access it without feeling judged or stigmatized as they navigate the process.
