Induction appointment: Prior to your first appointment, you will be walked through the step-by-step procedure by one of our caring health professionals. You will be asked to log on to our patient portal to fill out pre-appointment paperwork. During your induction visit, your chronic illness will be thoroughly explained, as well as medication choices. You will be an active participant in the process of medication-assisted treatment. Family members are always welcome to attend, as we feel a positive support system is invaluable to your recovery. You will be sent home with the cell phone number of a physician who will remain in contact with you throughout the induction process.
Acute stabilization visit: One week after your induction visit, you will return to the clinic for another visit. At this time, you will once again speak to a physician or nurse practitioner to further enhance your knowledge of the recovery process using medication-assisted treatment. Once again, we will answer any questions and make any necessary medication changes or dosage adjustments.
Maintenance visit: After you are stabilized on your medication dosage and preparation, you will return to the clinic once a month to provide a urine sample for compliance and follow up with your physician. Your physician and patient care coordinator will remain available via text or phone for any questions or concerns.
