Your doctor will write you a prescription after your visit, you can then fill that prescription at your local pharmacy. Suboxone is a medicine that is commonly stocked at most pharmacies and our doctors can provide a list of local pharmacies carrying Suboxone in stock.

8. How often do I need to see my doctor?

Suboxone is highly regulated by the DEA, and therefore you will need a follow up appointment at least every 1-2 weeks until stabilized and have proven compliance with the treatment plan and drug screening protocols. Monthly or even bimonthly visits, with random drug testing, may be possible at the discretion of your physician once compliance with the treatment program has been established.  A subsequent phone call will be included to see how the patient is doing with the initial dosing regimen prescribed.
