Online telemedicine is nothing new because many doctors and hospitals use it as a regular part of patient care. It’s only recent that many drug treatment clinics have started offering online addiction treatment using suboxone for opioid use disorder. If you’ve never heard about medication-assisted treatment (MAT) before, read on to become educated about the treatment options available for people with opiate addiction.
How Will You Communicate with Your Online Suboxone Doctor?
After the initial patient assessment has been done and a person is admitted into our telemedicine services, a patient will see their suboxone doctor online. A person can use a home computer, tablet or smart phone to reach out to their provider through video chat. A patient and provider will be able to see and hear each other for a consultation and a provider will then call a prescription into a local pharmacy. To utilize telemedicine services, a person needs an internet connection, smart phone or computer and a quiet place to chat.
What are the Requirements for Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT)?
While patients are taking suboxone, a pill that mimics the effects of an opiate, they will experience reduced withdrawal symptoms and have a less likely chance of relapse. To qualify for MAT services a person must be over the age of 18, must not be pregnant and must submit to a physical to receive a diagnosis of drug addiction. Nobody who seeks our MAT services has to worry about how to pay for it because we accept private medical insurance, self-pay patients and state Medicaid.
