Frequently Asked Questions

Is this a methadone clinic?
We do offer methadone as part of our medication assisted treatment, but also offer much more than a typical clinic. We combine behavioral and mental health services with medication assisted treatment to ensure the best chance for successful recovery.
Are you inpatient?
We offer treatment in an outpatient setting. We don’t believe you should uproot your entire life to treat a substance use disorder; recovery can be achieved in an outpatient setting specifically designed to address your unique history, makeup and circumstance.
Do you write prescriptions for Suboxone?
We do not write prescriptions, rather, we dispense medications in our clinics. This helps our staff be mindful of how each patient is responding to the medication and helps customize treatment for each individual patient.
Can I just get the medications without doing the counseling?
Our patients are required to meet with their counselor at least once a month. This ensures that we are tackling the substance abuse from all angles and results in far higher success rates.
Do I have to go all 3x a week for IOP?
Initially, yes. As you progress through the program you may graduate to Aftercare, where you come in less, but to begin you must attend all 3 days. To know you best, and treat your unique needs, this method is proven.
How long does your program last?
The timeframe for treatment is completely individualized and decided upon between the patient and their treatment team. The patient’s needs and progress are frequently reassessed so you can be sure you are getting the most out of your treatment.
