How do I become a patient?
If you have never been enrolled in a methadone clinic, please call for a short evaluation. This will take about ten minutes so that we can help you decide if methadone treatment is the correct choice. If you are appropriate, you will be asked to come in at 6:00 am to see our physician and fill out paperwork. You will receive medication that day.
If you are currently on a methadone clinic, you can call and make plans to see our physician and fill out paperwork. You can either sign a release at your present clinic or a release at our clinic. Your present clinic will be contacted and your dose/phase received. You will remain on the same take home schedule. If your dose was not working for you, our physician may change it the day of admission.
Medication doses are individualized to each patient to optimize the success of treatment.
