HFM Suboxone Program
Highland Family Medicine provides outpatient treatment for patients with stable opioid use disorder including treatment with Buprenorphine (Suboxone or similar medications). This program is for patients who have completed Chemical Dependency, and who are currently being prescribed Buprenorphine (Suboxone or similar medications), related to Opioid Use Disorder, not chronic pain.
We have an abstinence based program and patients are required to engage in some form of weekly recovery support in addition to the medication (such as NA, AA, ROCovery).
For safety reasons, in general, people on Buprenorphine should also not be taking any Benzodiazepines.
If you wish to receive care with Buprenorphine at Highland Family Medicine, please complete the intake forms: HFM Suboxone Packet, and when completed please drop it off to Highland Family Medicine (central check-in). Please provide either your counselor or current Suboxone provider with the intake questionnaire (last part of Suboxone Intake Packet) for completion and when completed please have them fax it back to 585-279-4754. For more information, please contact the Suboxone Intake Coordinator at 585-324-4527, or via email.
For patients interested in participating in the CASA Trinity/HFM Telemed Suboxone Program, please complete the CASA Trinity HFM Telemed Packet. Please have your current Suboxone provider/counselor complete the Intake Questionnaire, that is the last page of the intake packet. Once both parts are completed, please fax it to 585-279-4754.
We use Strong Hospital for adults & children requiring hospitalization and Highland Hospital for newborns requiring hospitalization. Your family physician will maintain contact with you during your hospitalization. In addition, a faculty physician will be involved in your hospital care. If you are admitted to another area hospital, your primary care physician will be unable to care for you during your hospitalization.
Have a suggestion or comment, please follow the link: Patient Suggestion, and a member of our management team will follow-up.
