Take Home Medication - Earned
You have the ability to earn take-home medication that can reduce your visits to the clinic. As you become stronger in managing your addiction and earning take-homes, like your addiction we will become less and less visible in your life. It is our goal to get you there, and to support you as you take back your life.
Take Home Medication - Exceptions
Patients who have conflicts with daily dosing may receive an exception from the State of California. These conflicts may include employment schedules, medical reasons, and conflicts with caregiver responsibilities. Patients may receive up to 6 Take Homes depending on their individual situations.
Patients needing to go out of town for their employment, vacation, bereavement, or family emergency may receive Take Home medication from us or may be referred to a clinic near their destination to receive courtesy medication or a temporary transfer. This determination is done according to guidelines established by the State of California and the individual patient. Either way, our staff will go out of their way to see that you maintain your treatment no matter where you go.
The cost for methadone maintenance is far less expensive than your addiction. Patients are charged a sliding scale fee based upon income and number of dependents. If you have Medi-Cal, your treatment costs are covered.
Remember, it is our clinic’s goal to become invisible in your life and not to make you a slave to your addiction or your treatment. It is our clinic’s goal to bring back order and perspective to you as a whole person with a whole life.
