Suboxone treatment

Dr. Martini has been certified since 2004 to treat patients for opiate dependence using either Suboxone or Subutex.

There are two goals of treatment:

  1. Detoxification from opiates

  2. Maintenance on an opiate alternative

Detoxification from opiates using Suboxone helps patients avoid painful withdrawal symptoms while trying to regain control of their life and "kick the habit."

Maintaining a patient on Suboxone or Subutex is a substitute for Methadone and the need for being in a Methadone Clinic. This option is suitable when a patient has tried repeatedly to stop using without success, to prevent future relapses to opiates.

Usually we can accommodate new patients within couple of days up to a week. Unless we are able to verify insurance benefits, you will be asked for full payment at time of service. Once insurance benefits are verified, your payment will either be refunded to you, or will be added as credit towards future co-pays.
