During your initial appointment, we will collaborate on your treatment goals. We will make an individual plan of scientifically- proven treatments based on your sobriety goals. All plans will include medical and psychological evaluations and treatments provided by doctors.
Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) is the use of medications, in combination with counseling and behavioral therapy, to provide a “whole-patient” approach to the treatment of substance use disorders. Research shows that a combination of medication and therapy can successfully treat these disorders, and for some people struggling with addiction, MAT can help sustain recovery. MAT can be used for Opiates, Alcohol, Tobacco, Stimulants use disorders and more.
Once you have had an assessment, you will be given access to contact the medical doctor or psychologist directly by email or text. There is also a patient portal for confidential, HIPAA compliant, communications with any of your doctors.
Most PPO insurance plans will reimburse for our services. After every appointment, you will receive a superbill that can be submitted to your insurance to be reimbursed at 'out of network' rates. This will go towards your 'out of network' deductible.
Appointment requests can be made online. Confirmation of the appointment will be done via email and text.
