How long will I be there on the day of my intake?

The intake process can take up to 2 to 3 hours. You will complete paperwork, see the intake coordinator, have your intake physical with the medical staff, and finish with the nurses getting medication and blood drawn.

Do I get medication on the day of my intake?

If you have not had short acting opiates within 12-24 hour (methadone 48-72 hours), and are in withdrawal, then you will receive the induction medicine, buprenorphine.

What is the schedule for the first few days?

After the induction day, you will return in 48 hours to follow up with the Doctor, see your counselor, then have your TB skin test read, and receive your next week’s medication and Narcan kit.
