Patients are encouraged to participate in group therapy weekly and are required to attend a minimum of 2 groups per month to receive medications. After the first month you will then be considered an established patient with office visits with physician, urine drug screens, and individual and/or group therapy sessions. Web based therapy is available on a secure server for patients that have a web cam and internet access, if attendance in person would be difficult due to circumstances that merit it. Family members or significant others can attend and participate in group session without charge when accompanied by a patient.
