What This Means to You
This means access to outpatient Substance Use medication management by a qualified prescribing provider who evaluates the individual’s need for medications to assist in detoxification and ongoing sobriety. Laboratory testing at the initial assessment and throughout treatment at an MIA approved clinic within the client’s geographic area.
Clients will work towards abstinence from all non-prescribed mood altering substances, improving physical well-being and complete detoxification from abused chemicals. Clients will receive psychiatric and behavioral components of care and pharmacological therapy for craving control and euphoric inhibition, as well as, treatment for co-occurring psychiatric disorders and co-morbidities. Clients will gain the knowledge, insight, coping mechanisms, and support systems necessary to achieve and maintain long-term recovery and improve their quality of life by integrating MIA-VRTM services with those in their community.
Limitations not inherent in the traditional physician-patient relationship may be present in telemedicine in certain cases. Clients may need to visit their primary care physician prior to telemedicine services. Not all telemedicine appointments will result in the prescription of medication. Buprenorphine (Suboxone, Zubsolv, Bunivail, Subutex) treatment is available through this program. Clients are required to have an initial and yearly Face-to-Face visit as well as random drug testing at a facility of MIA’s choosing upon request and on a regular basis. Follow-ups for all scheduled medications are conducted through video. The physician may require additional visits and labs be done and is purely up to the prescribing physician.
