Buprenorphine Management in Fort Smith

Medication Assisted Treatment So You Can Gain Control Over Your Life

We believe in pricing transparency.

Initial appointment $120

Established client $50 

New clients as well as transfers from other Buprenorphine doctors are welcome.  

After the first month  most of our clients spend about $135 per month or less for treatment.  This includes medications AND physician visits.  We can offer such low prices because we do not bill insurance.  Accepting insurance would easily double or triple the cost of operating  a small medical practice.  We also offer evening and weekend appointments.   Stable clients can be seen once every 8 weeks instead of once a month.  

Buprenorphine can be as low as $78 per month for 60 tablets which is a typical monthly prescription.   The lowest prices are generally available with prescription discount cards and pharmacy in-house compassionate care programs.  We can direct you to the appropriate pharmacy and program.

If you need less than 60 buprenorphine per month your cost might be a little lower.  If you need more than 60 tablets per month your costs may be a bit higher.  We have pharmacies listed below.   Pharmacy prices are subject to change.

Are you ready to get your life back together?  We have kept prices as cheap as possible.  Show the parents these prices if you are flat broke.   It's tough being broke.  I've been there before.    Your parents may help you get your life back together when they see how cheap it is.

We can keep our our  prices  low at Buprenorphine Management in Fort Smith by not accepting insurance,  as this can double or triple the prices a clinic has to charge. 

Opiate addiction in Fort Smith is a growing concern, and we want to be part of the solution by providing inexpensive treatment.

You should check with your insurance company to see if they will pay for Buprenorphine products prescribed by an out of network physician.  Since we don't bill electronically (this would easily double or triple our costs) most insurance will not pay.   You should assume you will have to pay for the buprenorphine yourself unless you have some type of high class group health  insurance from a job, such as Aetna or Blue Cross.

Instructions for appointments

Please read carefully

For your first appointment with us, please bring in the actual bottles of all medications, supplements, herbal remedies, and vitamins that you take.  You may bring in a complete list instead if you will remember to update it regularly.  If you are transferring from another buprenorphine or suboxone doctor then continue to take your medication as prescribed.  

If you are using opiates illegally then you must refrain from use for at least 24 hours prior to the appointment.   If you do not refrain for at least 24 hours buprenorphine might put you into withdrawal, possibly the worst you have ever experienced.  

Additionally if  you have never been on suboxone or buprenorphine previously then be prepared to pick up your prescription at the pharmacy then return for two hours of observation for your first dose.

Mixing alcohol or sleeping medicines or benzodiazepines with opiates can be dangerous.  You must not drink alcohol. 

If you are on a benzodiazepine (for example  Xanax, Valium, Klonopin, Temazepam, Ativan) or sleep medications (for example  Ambien,  Lunesta, or Sonata)/then these will need to be reduced to a reasonable level.  If you do not think you can reduce these types of medicines, then please do not  make an appointment.  2 mg per day of Klonopin, Xanax, or a generic version, is the maximum allowable in a healthy adult on buprenorphine in most circumstances in my judgment,  preferably less.
