"Helping people achieve peak wellness by maintaining an addiction free lifestyle."
At Summit Behavioral Wellness, we utilize medication assisted treatment and evidence-based counseling techniques to maximize your success in maintaining an addiction-free lifestyle. This primarily involves the use of buprenorphine for opioid use disorder. We also offer treatment for co-occurring conditions.
What To Expect
All new patients will move through the three phases of recovery as described below. Transferring patients will be placed in the appropriate maintenance phase, as determined by the physician.
Because different individuals have different needs, we will begin all patients on a standard dose, then adjust accordingly over the next few days until the most appropriate and personalized dosage for use in the next phase is determined.
This phase is comprised of the first three months of treatment. During the first month, patients will meet weekly with their counselor and their physician. During the second and third months, meetings with counselors and the physician will be bi-weekly. For your convenience, counseling is also available through tele-therapy
After the first three months of treatment (induction and early maintenance phase), patients will meet once a month for the next nine months with their support coordinator and with their physician. After this, when patients (including transfers) have been in recovery at Summit Behavioral Wellness for one year, meetings will be bi-monthly.
Willingness to participate in counseling, especially during the early maintenance phase
Willingness to participate in urine drug screens
While patients may begin buprenorphine treatment while using other potentially addictive substances (as long as it is not immediately dangerous), they must be willing to move towards minimizing their use of these substances. This includes the use of:
Pharmaceuticals not prescribed to the patient
Benzodiazepines for anxiety above 1 mg/day clonazepam or its equivalent
Stimulants for ADHD above FDA guidelines
Other illicit substances
Estimate Of Cost
We realize that recovery is difficult, and make every effort to provide treatment at very competitive rates in comparison to other private clinics. Because we offer highly individualized treatment, cost varies depending on the patient. Due to evaluation and greater treatment intensity, costs are higher during the induction and early maintenance phase. Once recovery is well established in the continuing maintenance phase, the average cost is between $50 and $200 per month depending on the need for treatment of co-occurring conditions. Routine drug screens are and additional $20 each. Most insurances will cover the cost of medication, but otherwise the cost is around $150 to $225 per month.
Methods Of Payment
Though we do plan to offer this in the future, we are not currently able to accept health insurance as payment for treatment. We can, however, provide a "superbill" which can be submitted to some participating health insurance policies for reimbursement.
We accept cash, credit, debit, and paypal.
Why Is Psychosocial Treatment (Counseling) Required?
Psychosocial treatment (recovery support) provides individuals in treatment with important tools that can be used to maintain recovery and avoid relapse. This is especially important in the first 90 days of treatment, and after a relapse.
