Suboxone/Subutex First Visit Fees:


There are no enrollment fees in the Suboxone/Subutex Program.  Though you will be seen privately by Dr. Mitchell for your individual assessment, when you arrive you may have to fill out paperwork in our waiting area with other people.


Bring $50 to your first visit - $40 for the first week enrollment and $10 for the in-office 2mg test doses of buprenorphine (test doses are used to verify that you respond well to this treatment).


This is voluntary treatment, and you can come back as you need.  This office uses a ladder system - as you progress in your recovery you can sign up for longer enrollment periods.  After your first visit you can sign up progressively for 2, 3, 4 or 8 week office visits at a rate of $40 per week.  If you want to enroll for 2 or more weeks, you must first pass a mandatory $10 drug screen, however, this test is not required for one week enrollments.


Drug test cost $10 the first time if negative, and after that drug tests are FREE if negative.  If a drug test is ever positive for anything (including marijuana) that has not been confirmed ahead of time as a prescription medication, then the drug test costs $20 instead of being either $10 or FREE.


We do not sell medication at this office, and generic equivalents of Suboxone/Subutex are now availalbe.  Please check with local pharmacies near you for availability and prices.


If for any reason, your evaluation with Dr. Mitchell shows that Suboxone/Subutex or their generic equivalents are not an appropriate treatment for you, or you decide not to undergo treatment with Dr. Mitchell after you have had your initial consultation, then there will be no charge for your first visit.



Suboxone/Subutex Follow-up Visit Fees:


This is voluntary treatment, and you can come back as you need.  Fees for follow-up visits in the Suboxone/Subutex Program are solely based upon how many weeks of treatment you sign-up for, as follows:

       1 week follow-ups - $40

       2 week follow-ups - $60*

       3 week follow-ups - $120

       4 week follow-ups - $160

       6 week follow-ups - $240


There is a $10 late fee if you show up significantly late for your scheduled appointment time, and a $30 charge for missed follow-up appointments without at least a 24 hour prior notice of cancellation.


These fees include all routine services provided in the office, including the visit with Dr. Mitchell, counseling during each visit, and prescription slips for medication.  Blood or urine tests, if requested by either the patient or Dr. Mitchell are not included in these fees.


* - currently there is a $20 discount on the 2 week visit only (normally $80).
