Medication-assisted treatment, or MAT, is evidenced-based and has been proven effective in treating opioid-related use disorder. Simply stated, MAT reduces overdose deaths and increases retention in treatment long enough for patients to develop the skill and support needed for long-term recovery. It is the stigma attached to MAT that prevents many people from accessing this life-saving treatment. We don’t shame patients who are prescribed insulin, cholesterol, blood pressure, or tobacco-cessation medications when other treatments and lifestyle changes have not been effective in controlling their conditions. MAT, combined with trauma-informed care and counseling in a treatment setting, can effectively treat patients who have not benefited from non-medical paths to recovery.

Frequently Asked Questions
Do You Prescribe Suboxone ?
In the United States, it is illegal for doctors to prescribe opiates for treating opioid addiction unless it is in an addiction treatment centre which has been given permission from state and federal authorities. In order to prescribe suboxone, a physician must qualify for a special waiver, which includes eight hours of training and applying for it from the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA).
Our doctors have been trained and assigned a special “X” number by the DEA to legally prescribe suboxone. Currently, we are offering telehealth services, have no waiting list, we are accepting new patients and provide same-day appointments in most situations. We believe suboxone saves lives which is why it is an integral part of our medication-assisted treatment program and the foundation of the services we are proud to offer our patients.
How Much Does It Cost to See Our Suboxone Doctor?
Many suboxone clinics offering medication-assisted treatment or MAT, cannot give someone a flat rate for treatment, this is where our clinic is completely different than most. Lots of times, someone will call around to doctor’s offices and clinics for suboxone pricing information and depending on the area of the country and the services offered, the costs can be considerable.
Our clinic offers transparent pricing, on top of that we accept any private medical insurance, offer affordable treatment costs which are transparent from the start and we accept state Medicaid. Because our goal is to save lives, we believe in keeping our services affordable, easily accessible and available to potential patients 24/7.
When is Suboxone Given to Someone with Opioid Use Disorder?
With regular and prolonged use of opiates, someone is guaranteed to become heavily addicted. Once opiate use has ceased, withdrawal symptoms will follow, and it can range from mildly bothersome to intensely painful. The process of withdrawal from opiates can be a deterrent for many people to quit and it makes the journey to recovery extremely difficult.
Because going through opiate withdrawal can last for 7-10 days, our suboxone clinic offers medication-assisted treatment for easing the process on our patients. Suboxone is provided to our patients to make withdrawal easier, to prevent relapse and to decrease risk-taking behaviour associated with opiate abuse. We use patient education, consistent monitoring and random drug tests to ensure our patients are compliant and making the necessary progress towards a complete and total recovery.
Is Suboxone Treatment Trading One Addiction for Another?
In short, you aren’t trading one addiction for another when you receive medication-assisted treatment using suboxone. With successful treatment for opioid addiction at our clinic, a person will stop their compulsive drug seeking, lose the cravings to abuse opiates and be able to successfully taper down from the medication our doctors prescribe. When our patient switches from an addictive opiate to successful suboxone treatment, the addictive behavior and all its damage stops.
Patients in our care regain control over their life and have traded a life-threatening addiction to the daily responsibility of taking suboxone for maintenance. Physical drug dependence existed before a person goes through medication-assisted treatment, so using suboxone for recovery isn’t trading one addiction for another.
Is Suboxone Addictive?
Although there’s a genuine potential for addiction with suboxone, the risk is extremely low. There are some people who develop an uncontrollable compulsion to abuse suboxone, but when it is monitored and supervised through a medication-assisted treatment program the risks are low. People can become addicted to anything which creates pleasure, even food, sex or the internet, because of how the brains reward system is stimulated.
If you find yourself concerned with your opioid use disorder and want to find out more information about medication-assisted treatment, please consider contacting our clinic for further assistance. We offer telehealth services, medication-assisted treatment, we accept Medicaid, private medical insurance and offer affordable payment options.
What is The Likely Outcome of Suboxone Treatment?
Because we believe in our mission of saving lives, we completely stand behind our medication-assisted treatment using suboxone. There is a wealth of information which scientifically proves suboxone effectively treats opioid use disorder, which only further shows you are likely to have a successful outcome if you seek treatment with out clinic. You are worth saving, your life has meaning, and you aren’t doomed to spending the rest of your existence being consumed by addiction, because with one phone call everything can change.
