+What do I have to do to get started?
Call us any time of day or night (24/7) at (800) 683-8313, and our intake specialist will collect some necessary information and schedule you for an in-person intake appointment. New members are almost always seen within seven days, most in 48 hours.
+What happens at my intake appointment?
You will meet individually with a licensed substance abuse counselor who will collect a clinical history to see if you are a good fit for our program. You’ll be asked to provide a urine sample; remember, it’s OK to test positive for opioids (we expect it!).
Next, you will meet individually with a physician who will review medical issues that could impact your treatment and will determine your appropriate dose of medication to prevent cravings. You will then join a group of other members at different stages of recovery that meets every week.
+When are groups?
Groups are held on weekdays between 8 AM and 8 PM, but depend on individual office schedules. You will set up your group time with the counselor during your intake appointment. We make every effort to fit into your work schedule.
+What are groups like?
Groups are small (10-15 people) and will be with the same people every week. They meet for 1 hour and are led by a licensed counselor. We keep things casual and have coffee and snacks available for all members. A physician joins each group once a month and can help with questions about medication, and develop a plan to taper off when you are ready.
