For this reason, I have become trained in office-based treatment of opioid dependence and expect to begin offering this service to patients as of July 1, 2000.

In addition, because the medication used (buprenorphine) is available by prescription, office-based treatment is often more flexible and convenient than other treatments.
I am available for consultation and referrals. Please feel free to contact me if you would like to discuss my treatment services further and together we can help patients who suffer from opioid dependence.
