We Welcome All Rhode Island Insurances, Including State-Specific Plans
No need for dealing with scheduling and long substance abuse counselling sessions!
We are the only Suboxone clinic in Providence Rhode Island to offer reSET-O® an FDA approved program that allows you to perform online reading at the time and duration that you choose, which allows you to forgo speaking with a Substance Abuse counselor. Of course, if preferred, we have an excellent list of Substance abuse counselors as referral who all take medical insurance and offer over the phone sessions. Learn More About reSET-O®
How it Works
It’s as simple as 1-2-3
Start by selecting an appointment date. We are open Monday through Friday for your convenience. For expediency, pre-registration forms will be emailed to you. After that there will be a quick and easy check-in process and you will be seen by one of our qualified practitioners properly, in a private room
A brief evaluation will be performed by a board certified, Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) certified practitioner. A urine drug screen will be obtained. This will be entered electronically in our system, allowing patients to access the records and results.
A prescription will be electronically sent to your preferred pharmacy and will typically be available for you to pick up as soon as you leave the office. We will schedule your follow up, which will include options for telemedicine for Suboxone treatment.
We are dedicated towards helping you remain addiction free
Learn About our Team
Our facility is run by a board certified, SAMHSA trained physician, who has 17 years of experience managing addiction and withdrawal on an emergent and non-emergent basis. He is accompanied by a team of practitioners with years of experience in addiction medicine.
Our team follows the strict guidelines put in place by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (samhsa.gov) and all of our practitioners are licensed to prescribe medication to aid in Opioid Replacement Therapy (ORT) such as Suboxone. We strive to provide compassionate, professional, and prompt service with your confidentiality in mind.
Additionally, we provide substance abuse counselors by referral. We only refer to highly trained, compassionate counselors who can accommodate your schedule. We offer emergency calls directly to a provider not an answering service.
Efficacy of Buprenorphine
Buprenorphine is the main component of SUBOXONE®
In a Swedish study, 40 individuals who met the DSM-IV criteria for opiate dependence for at least one year were treated with buprenorphine. Along with counseling, individuals given buprenorphine doses had a 75% rate or testing negative on urine screens for opiates (as well as other illicit drugs), compared to 0% for individuals administered placebos. The Lancet, J. Kakko, et al., 2003.
In a study consisting of 300 participants, quality of life was measured for those who remained in buprenorphine treatment and compared to those who had left treatment. According to quality of life scales (consisting of psychological and environmental metrics), those who had stayed in treatment scored significantly higher. Journal of Psychoactive Drugs, S.G. Mitchell, et al., 2015.
According to 2017 American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists guidelines, buprenorphine is the treatment of choice for opioid-dependent women in pregnancy and is safer than methadone or medical withdrawal.
