What Can I Expect?
First, you will have an individualized appointment with Dr. Lepore/Staff to access your needs, medication management and prescriptions. Next, you will sign a treatment contract and help us develop a summary of your drug/alcohol history.
Two or three days later, you will return to the office and Dr. Lepore/Staff will assess how well you have adapted to the prescribed medication. Based on your experience with the medicine and our assessment, any necessary changes will be made to your plan of care. You will then be given an appointment to visit ASN weekly to monitor your progress.
You will meet with the onsite therapist to assess your behavioral health care needs and then be given a list of therapists on Nantucket who treat the behavioral aspects of your addiction.
When the time comes - when your addiction is a thing of the past, and you are anchored securely in a drug/alcohol free lifestyle - you will meet with Dr. Lepore/Staff to plan the next phase of your recovery. This may include medication maintenance or medication taper/cessation.
