The first thing you have to do is step foot in our clinic and we will help you along your journey every step of the way.
A member of our compassionate staff will perform a prompt screening to determine your eligibility for treatment based on a face-to-face interview.
If the staff approves the initial face-to-face assessment, you will begin to complete your paperwork packet. After your packet is completed and approved, you will have your first consultation with one of our friendly, helpful physicians, nurses, and counselors.
Your initial meeting with the physician allows for a physical assessment and an inspection of your substance abuse history. Our nurse collects a sample of blood and urine to ascertain the amount of substance in your body as well as to assess health risks, diseases, and infections. During your first meeting with an LCDC, the LCDC will determine a plan to assist you on your road to recovery by talking about career and financial goals, family, and any other life decisions that you may wish to discuss that would be helpful on your treatment journey.
Once qualified by our physician, nurse, and counselor, you will be eligible to receive your Methadone or Buprenorphine treatment. Daily, you will come in for your treatment dose until you have established stable and managed progress. At that point, you may be eligible for take-home dosing so you do not have to visit our site on a daily basis.
While a clinic patient at AARS, you will be expected to work diligently toward your treatment goals by daily dosing, periodic U/As , counseling, and physician interactions. Our clinic is holistic in our approach to treatment. We provide the medication to reduce the signs and symptoms of withdrawal and to reduce cravings, but we also work with your mind, body, and spirit to find out why you used and how you can avoid using illicit drugs in the future. We help you make connections that provide a greater chance of staying illicit-drug free.
