Opioid Addiction Recovery Services
Dr. Rubinstein can evaluate and treat individuals of the community who self-refer or are referred by other health care providers. Our goal is to understand the patient's background including personal history, mood disorders, and traumatic experiences.
Dr. Rubinstein believes medication assisted treatment of opioid addiction must include engagement by the patient in counseling. Counseling is a crucial component of treatment. We refer all patients for counseling if they are not already participating, and all patients must sign appropriate HIPAA release forms. Our goal is to enable patients to reclaim their lives, rebuild relationships, and achieve new goals moving forward. We perform random drug testing in the office. All services are completely confidential.
