Suboxone Information

Suboxone (buprenorphine/naloxone) is a prescription medication approved by the FDA to treat opiod dependence. Combined with relapse prevention programs such as substance abuse counseling, intensive outpatient programs, group therapy, and/or 12-step recovery programs, Suboxone treamtne can help restore balance and functioning to those addicted to opiates.

If you would like to set up an appointment to be assessed for Suboxone treatment, please complete and return the "New Patient Instructions" linked below. After you have submitted the forms, you will be contacted for a telephone screening before scheduling your appointment. Your initial appointment will be used to assess if Suboxone or another treatment method would be best for you. The initial evaluation does not guarantee Suboxone. Other treatment alternatives may be considered.

Please note: Dr. Wozniak is currently the only Suboxone prescriber at this facility. No medication is kept at this facility.
