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 a video intake appointment. We strive to get all new members an appointment within 48 hours.
What happens at my intake appointment?
Now via telehealth during COVID-19, you will meet individually with a licensed substance use disorder 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 okay 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. With our offices closed for safety during the COVID-19 pandemic, we have transitioned to telehealth and are offering all groups remotely over videoconferencing. All you need to join is a phone.
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're continuing the same format via telehealth while our offices are closed during COVID-19. 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.
