Our patients are required to attend 90 meetings in the first 90 days, then at least a minimum of 3 meetings a week. We also give them a list of websites they can access for additional support and which all patients find very helpful. There are online meetings any time, every day. The medication also has a "ceiling effect" so that it may give some opioid-like effects at the beginning, it subsides and you do not get more of an euphoria, by using more medication. If you wish to have an appointment with us, please call (904)460-0707 and request an appointment for our Buprenorphine Program, Opioid Dependence Program.
