Congratulation on overcoming your opiate addiction. But, as you know, the road to recovery has its bumps in the road. So, if you answer yes to any of the following challenges in your treatment, we can help:
- Are you entering into, or are currently in, an inpatient program that prescribes buprenorphine along with treatment and want to make sure you have an aftercare program that will continue your buprenorphine treatment?
- Are you moving to the Chicagoland area and are looking for a buprenorphine doctor?
- Are you currently prescribed buprenorphine and are looking for an outpatient treatment program that prescribes buprenorphine?
Our programs combine the latest in medically-assisted technology and counseling options. Our medically-assisted treatment includes Suboxone®, Zubsolv®, Bunavail®, Subutex®, or Vivitrol®
If you are currently associated with an inpatient program, please inquire about our INPATIENT CONTINUATION PROGRAM. Details about our program are at the bottom of this page.
TREATMENT CONTINUATION PROTOCOL
Our Treatment Continuation Program, with products like Suboxone®, Zubsolv®, Bunavail®, Subutex®, or Vivitrol®, is managed by the following protocol:
Our initial visit is to confirm your current treatment and continue your treatment program with our team. At the first visit, patients meet one of our doctors, complete necessary paperwork, and line up any counseling you might need. If your medication needs a pre-authorization, our staff works with your insurance to transfer and continue your prescription with us. If you are prescribed a medication that you pick up at the pharmacy, you will need to return back to our office for a medical compliance test a week later, but not a visit with the doctor.
Our continuation programs can last from six (6) months to a lifetime depending on your prior dependence and long term goals. At BRIGHTSIDE, we continue to monitor and manage the medication on a monthly basis. During this phase of treatment, we recommend and offer counseling or group therapy through us or through our partners that offer intensive outpatient programs (IOP), group therapy, or residential/inpatient care.
When someone is ready to reduce the prescribed medication, we work as a team with counselors and partners to develop a tapering program that will ensure a successful completion of treatment. Our philosophy is to carefully and slowly taper your medication to ensure success.
INPATIENT CONTINUATION PROGRAM
Medically-assisted treatment combined with counseling is proven to be more effective than counseling alone. But, many people have trouble getting this treatment upon leaving an inpatient or residential program. In addition, funds can be tight after leaving an inpatient/residential program to continue treatment. Thus, many people start this type of treatment only to have trouble continuing it after they leave.
This puts patients at risk of relapse and potentially life threatening overdose.
BRIGHTSIDE established this life-saving continuation program that guarantees continued medical treatment after leaving your inpatient/residential program.
By joining this program and providing a pre-payment before your first visit, we will:
- Secure a spot at BRIGHTSIDE to receive treatment upon discharge
- Continue your buprenorphine treatment within 2 days after discharge
- Delay your first payment after discharge up to a month.
