Suboxone Frequently Asked Questions

General

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. 2. We have a friendly staff and a warm environment. 3. We strive to see you at your scheduled appointent time. 4. We are available via phone, text, and email and you will be guaranteed a reply back. And, if you need to speak to the physician about your medications, he will personally return your call.




I AM DEPENDENT ON OPIOIDS (E.G. HEROIN OR PAIN PILLS). WHAT IS YOUR TREATMENT PLAN FOR ME?


*Note: Each plan is unique to the patient's circumstances. The plan below is given as an example and may or may not apply to you: Day 1 (Induction Phase 1): Arrive at your first appointment where your patient packet will be reviewed with you, and all questions answered. A comprehensive exam will be given and a treatment plan developed to suit your needs. Typically, buprenorphine (brand: Suboxone, Subutex, Bunavail, Probuphine) will be prescribed. ​​ Day 14 (Induction Phase 2): Follow up to assess for any dose adjustments. Day 28 (Maintenence Phase): From here on out, and every 4 weeks, you will be re-assessed for any changes. We will work with you to achieve your goals. Preventative Measures: We prescribe naloxone and help with referrals to therapy geared towards addiction.




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?


Children: No, we only treat adults ages 18 and up. Pregnant Women: Yes, and we will work with your OB/GYN to coordinate the care.




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. 2. SPONSOR: Obtaining a sponsor is critical to your recovery. They are there for you in times of need and help in preventing a relapse, even at 3am on a Monday morning. Best news is they are completely free. Usually sponsors can be found at 12-step meetings, just ask around!​ 3. URINE DRUG SCREEN: During each visit, you will be required to provide a urine sample for drug screening (free of charge). We understand that sometimes failures occur and discharging patients is not ideal, so our goal is to work with you towards recovery in a joint effort, patient and doctor. But we also understand the need for setting boundaries and looking out for your best interest - please read the patient packet carefully.




DO YOU TAKE INSURANCE? WHAT IS YOUR PAYMENT POLICY?


Insurance: Unfortunately, under the traditional insurance model your treatment decisions are influenced by arbitrary guidelines enforced by insurance reviewers who often do not have an understanding of your unique needs and who are rewarded for denying your coverage. For this reason, and in your best interest, we have elected not to accept insurance at this time. We know this is the only way to ensure we can provide you with the best quality care based on our experience and the most up-to-date evidence in the medical literature. Payment Policy: We accept cash and all major credit cards. You may pay online prior to your visit (see *PAYMENTS* tab), or on the day of your visit. Refund Policy: No refunds.




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.
