Suboxone Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT MAKES YOU DIFFERENT FROM OTHER ADDICTION/SUBOXONE PROVIDERS?
1. We treat the entire patient, not just with one medication (e.g. Suboxone). This means we strive to provide you the most comprehensive treatment with experts in the field. By treating your behavioral and mood symptoms along with your addiction and pain, we find that our patients have the best chances for sustained recovery. Addiction treatment goes beyond Suboxone, and it requires qualified and caring professionals to take you there.
I AM DEPENDENT ON OPIOIDS (E.G. HEROIN OR PAIN PILLS). WHAT IS YOUR TREATMENT PLAN FOR ME?
I HAVE SURGERY SCHEDULED AND MAY REQUIRE PAIN MEDICATIONS IN THE HOSPITAL. WILL THIS AFFECT MY TREATMENT?
Most likely not. We will advise you on the best course of action to help prepare you for any hospital visits and after care instructions.
DO YOU PRESCRIBE ANYTHING OTHER THAN SUBOXONE FOR OPIOID DEPENDENCE?
Yes, and we will work with you to find the right treatment that fits your needs.
WHAT IF I RELAPSE?
We will help get you back on track and find a solution to prevent future relapses.
DO YOU TREAT PSYCHIATRIC DISORDERS?
We treat the whole patient with a focus on addiction. Psychiatric disorders often co-exist with addiction and this is an integral part of treatment.
DO YOU TREAT CHILDREN OR PREGNANT WOMEN?
ARE THERE EXPECTATIONS FOR ME AS A PATIENT?
1.MEETINGS: During each visit you will be required to show progress in your recovery by attending counseling and/or meetings geared towards addiction recovery. This may be one-on-one, or in groups, whichever you prefer. But it must be useful to you - sometimes that requires patience.
DO YOU TAKE INSURANCE? WHAT IS YOUR PAYMENT POLICY?
HOW DO I SAVE ON PRESCRIPTION COSTS AT THE PHARMACY?
The manufacturers often provide discounts. Other options are to search online for coupons at sites like www.goodrx.com or www.helprx.info.
