Yes, it is safe when prescribed by a doctor just like any other medication you might take for blood pressure, diabetes, etc. If you have specific questions give us a call and we’ll be happy to answer them.
There is no set “treatment time” and many patients choose to remain on medication indefinitely. The general idea is that treatment lasts as long as it is beneficial and the patient wants to continue. For some this is six months and others it could be years.
No. While they function similarly and are used for similar treatment goals, they are 2 different medications. Methadone has been studied longer and is considered the standard of treatment while Suboxone or buprenorphine based products are a more recent addition to treatment regimens. Both have benefits depending on your needs and we’ll help you determine the best option.
Sadly no. We are unable to fill prescriptions at our center. There are several retail pharmacies nearby though who would be happy to help you. Also, individual prescribers with an XDEA number may write prescriptions for things like Suboxone but we cannot fill their prescriptions here. You would still need to go to a retail pharmacy to fill these prescriptions.
Basically everything you need for your recovery. We are a complete treatment center which means offering everything from the doctor visit to the medication and it’s all included. Counseling, group therapy, family therapy, behavioral techniques, referral services and much more are also provided for free.
Currently, we can only accept self-pay patients. But we are working on insurance contracts as our goal is to accept all insurances since no one should be without treatment. If you have insurance let us know and we'll be happy to contact you as soon as it's available. As with everything we know cost is important, so give us a call today to see how we can work with you to get you the best treatment possible.
While we are not open on Sunday, we give every patient a take home dose for Sunday so they don't have to come to the center.
Patients can begin receiving more take home doses as early as 1 month, however, there is no standard scale as take home doses are largely based on how well a patient is following their treatment plan. Take homes are a privilege that ultimately rests with the patient but you can talk to your counselor and they can help you understand where you are and how to get to where you want to be.
We specialize in addiction treatment and offer doctor's visits, counseling, therapy, and other services that relate to recovery only. However, if you need services that we cannot provide, we can help you find a Primary Care or other medical/health care service that you require.
