On the first visit, you will need to report to our office 15-30 minutes prior to the scheduled appointment for paperwork completion, drug screen, brief physical exam and a clinical assessment by one of our highly-trained substance abuse therapists. You will need to be free of all opiates for 24 hours and be in moderate withdrawal to be evaluated by the doctor. In most cases, you will see one of our doctors the same day. You need to allow up to 2.5 hours to complete the intake process.
