Dr. Miriam Adelson is a leading physician and expert
in drug addiction. Wanting to help the community where she
resides, she founded, sponsors and manages two major
drug abuse treatment and research centers, one in Las Vegas and
one in Tel Aviv, Israel. Dr. Adelson has devoted her career to
medicine, specializing in internal medicine, emergency medicine
and chemical dependency and drug addiction.
With the rapidly rising use of painkillers by teens, Dr. Adelson’s
desire is to be able to help teens re-establish themselves in school
and lead normal lives. Dr. Adelson successfully developed
a methadone program for treating teen addiction to opiates.
The Adelson Clinic is a private, non-profit organization founded by Dr. Miriam and Sheldon G. Adelson and dedicated to treating the disease of opiate (heroin and painkillers) addiction by providing methadone (maintenance) treatment and counseling services. The clinic staff is treating individuals with compassion and extends a helping hand in a safe and dignified environment.
Founded in February 2000, the clinic is certified for adults and teenagers, and is the only local clinic to use methadone to treat teen dependency on painkillers such as OxyContin and Lortab, or heroin.
