FAQ/Treatment




What happens at your appointment?

At all appointments, you will see the medical provider and participate in a group counseling appointment. Most appointments run 90 minutes.

How many appointments must I attend?

In the first 4 months of treatment, patients are expected to have an appointment twice a month. If the patient achieves compliance with the program, they will "graduate" to monthly appointments. The frequency of appointments is at the discretion of the medical providers.

What does compliance look like?

Compliance means that the patient is attending their appointments, remaining free of illicit substances, and participating in counseling.

Do you offer counseling?

Yes, Specialists Medication Assisted Treatment offers individual and group counseling. In addition, we have relationshiops with providers who can offer intensive outpatient (IOP) and case managers for patients requiring more attention.

What happens if I cannot attend counseling sessions?

Specialists Medication Assisted Treatment recognizes that patients may have barriers (i.e., childcare, court appearances, ect.) to treatment that may preclude full participation. Patient needs are evaluated, and an individualized plan of care will be instituted to accomodate patients with barriers to treatment.

What happens if I have a “dirty urine drug screen”?

Specialists Medication Assisted Treatment is not in the business of punishing patients. We are here to help. Patients will be held accountable for their actions. You will continue to work with our medical and behavioral providers to achieve a meaningful recovery free of illicit substances.

Do you treat anxiety and depression?

Patients with substance use disorders don't always have easy access to psychiatric services, so at Specialists Medication Assisted Treatment we do treat psychiatric comorbidities such as anxiety, depression, PTSD, and bipolar disorder. Therapies include counseling and management with medications.
