Addiction Recovery Program
We offer an addiction recovery program with Amy Barnett, a Rockland substance abuse counselor with years of experience. Our program combines individual and group counseling with a slow two-year taper of buprenorphine/naloxone medication to reduce cravings and relapses.
Our small weekly group counseling meetings are held in our primary care office after hours to reduce the cost and hassles of missing work.
This program requires abstinence from other addictive or abused substances such as alcohol and marijuana. Patients on chronic benzodiazepines (Xanax, Valium, etc.) will need to slowly taper off these under a physician's supervision.
Like the rest of our Direct Primary Care practice, we've worked hard to make this affordable to most patients. Addiction treatment requires far more labor and testing resources when done properly so we are offering this as a separate, additional service. Since we don't have the costs and hassles of billing insurance companies, we can offer addiction treatment for a lower out of pocket cost to our high deductible policy and cash patients than insurance oriented practices. For those with (non-HMO) insurance or Mainecare most prescriptions and out of office tests are usually covered but check with your insurer.
