You will also be provided with an informed consent prior to initiation of treatment.

We highly recommend including your family support at all appointments. You will be asked to sign a release at intake to allow them to participate. Studies find that opiate addiction recovery is more successful with family support.
Will insurance cover your services and my medication?
In some cases insurance will provide coverage for your medication and often times even out of network coverage for the visit. However, this varies among insurance carriers and we recommend checking with your insurance provider for specific coverages.
How do I know if I qualify for addiction treatment?
You will undergo a series of screens that will be combined with your medical history. We will also perform all necessary checks on the Controlled Substance Monitoring Database
How long are the appointments?
Since our providers provide patient centered treatments, there is not a set time for appointments. Each appointment will be based on the unique needs of the patient at that point in time.
What types of medication(s) do the physicians prescribe?
If the patient is a candidate for medication assisted treatment, our physicians will likely utilize a medication with buprenorphine for opioid addiction and Naltrexone for Alcohol addiction. Common buprenorphine based medications include Suboxone, Subutex, Zubsolv, or Bunavail. Naltrexone based medications include Vivitrol and Revia. Other medication may or may not be prescribed depending on the patient's unique needs.
