At Brian Lynch, M.D, we concentrate on outpatient treatment.
It is my philosophy that, if at all possible, the patient should stay in the community.
This is despite the fact that many people and many in the situation of addiction, find themselves isolated. We hope to provide a therapeutic home and and one way or the other, in the long term, we have to return to the community.
The beauty of buprenorphine treatment is that one can literally be back at work within 48 hours.
1) We have an interview.
2) The patient stops using whatever they are using for 24 hours.
3) The patient can come into the office and is given a small amount of buprenorphine (Suboxone, Zubslv or Bunavail) and at the end of that hour you should be able to go about your business.
4) We will develop a long term plan for recovery.
5) In selected cases a two week taper is appropately attempted. This is of people you have had a short term addiction to opiates.
