Patients often start using opioid pain medicines for a legitimate purpose, such as following a major surgery. However, after a few weeks on the medication, the patient may find they have become dependent or addicted to their medication.
With recent changes in medical culture, many providers are now refusing to write long-term prescriptions for opiate and opioid medications, leaving their patients in withdrawal. Some of these individuals have sought out other ways to treat their addiction.

Primary Care Membership and Suboxone Treatment $150/month
SUBOXONE® is a medication that contains both buprenorphine (a long-acting opioid) and naloxone (an opioid-reversal agent that prevents abuse of the medication). It is a film that is taken sublingually (under the tongue) on a daily basis to prevent opiate withdrawal symptoms and cravings. Appropriately selected patients can be treated in a primary care physician’s office, rather than in a methadone clinic or inpatient treatment program.
