Are you or someone you know struggling with an opioid addiction? If so, medication-assisted treatment (MAT) can be a powerful and effective treatment tool. While there are many medications that can be used in MAT, one of the most common is Suboxone. 

In short, Suboxone is a combination of two different drugs: buprenorphine and naloxone. When combined, these medications can help decrease the severity and longevity of opioid withdrawal symptoms. They can also help patients become less dependent on the substance over the long term. 

Today, online Suboxone clinics make it easier than ever to secure the medication you need. How do they work and what advantages do they offer over traditional, in-person clinics? Today, we’re sharing the answers you need to know. 

What Are Online Suboxone Clinics?

Thanks to the Digital Age, we’re now more connected than ever before. There are many benefits to this “always-on” era, and one of those is the recent rise of the online clinic. 

As their name implies, these clinics allow patients to seek medical support and obtain the medications they need, all in a virtual format. You don’t have to worry about scheduling an in-person appointment, waiting to be called back, and making another trip to the pharmacy before going home. 

With these platforms, you can do it all — right from the comfort of your own home. Not only is it more convenient and less time-consuming, but it’s also more discreet. You can pick up your medications at your local pharmacy, or they can arrive at your doorstep in inconspicuous packaging, ready for you to use. 

Online clinics can be used to obtain a variety of medications, all provided through the assistance of licensed physicians and pharmacists who will take the time to assess your condition and understand your needs. In this case, the delivery will contain Suboxone, a medication used prominently throughout MAT and known to help control the symptoms of opioid withdrawal. 

How Do They Work?

Before you sign up to use a virtual clinic or online pharmacy, it’s important to know what to expect. While each clinic will have its own set of specific steps, most will follow the same basic format.

Let’s take a look at how the process works at Recovery Delivered. 

Step 1: Check State Regulations

Before seeking a Suboxone prescription, you’ll need to make sure that the platform you’re using has partnered with licensed medical professionals in your state. For instance, this map provides a detailed overview of the states where Recovery Delivered currently operates. 

Once you confirm that there’s a presence in your state, you can move on to the next step!

Step 2: Set Up an Initial Visit

Before you begin working with an online clinic, the provider will take the time to understand your condition a little better and evaluate your medical history. This initial consultation will set the stage for the rest of the time you spend together. 

To make this step as easy as possible, most online Suboxone clinics will offer you the chance to start your treatment by filling out a form on their website. You can find ours here!

Your initial visit at Recovery Delivered is only $89 and a physician can provide a Suboxone prescription during that visit. The only thing you need to get started is your smartphone, tablet, or laptop and a state-issued ID. Once you download our app, it only takes a click to connect.

Step 3: Get Your Suboxone Prescription

When using an online clinic like Recovery Delivered, there will usually be two delivery options. For patients paying for Suboxone with insurance, the medication will be sent to your local pharmacy at the end of each visit, at your provider’s discretion. From there, your insurance will cover the cost. 

If you are paying for Suboxone out-of-pocket, the medication will be delivered to your door for a reasonable delivery rate. 

Step 4: Attend Follow-Up Doctor Visits and Take Drug Tests

At your first visit, your physician will determine how frequently you need to attend follow-up visits. Once you establish that schedule, you can connect virtually with your provider in a matter of seconds. Your treatment plan will be customized to your needs and visits will be priced accordingly.

For the first six visits, most of our patients attend weekly sessions. For new patients, the cost is $75 per visit.

After that six-week timeframe, patients typically see their physician once a month for a 10-15 minute follow-up/check-in visit. For those visits, the cost is $99 per month. 

Note that while this is how the plans are commonly structured, they are flexible. Your online Suboxone doctor will work with you to determine how often you need to attend your sessions. Throughout your treatment, we will deliver opioid drug tests to your home to monitor your results and ensure you’re following the treatment correctly. 

Understanding Membership Plans

Each patient enters an online Suboxone clinic at a different stage. Understanding this, we’ve structured our Recovery Delivered membership into three phases. All phases are conducted 100% online. 

Phase 1 Membership

Under Phase 1, you’ll attend weekly doctor’s visits for eight weeks. During this time, we will deliver drug tests to your home. The cost of Phase 1 is $75 per visit, for eight weeks. 

Phase 2 Membership

After you’ve attended eight weeks of weekly meetings and maintained clean drug testing, you’ll enter Phase 2. This phase includes bi-weekly doctor visits, as well as delivered drug tests. The cost of Phase 2 is $75 per visit.

Phase 3 Membership

If you’ve completed our 10-week treatment plan described above or your doctor prescribed you Suboxone for more than three months, you’ll be in Phase 3. This phase includes monthly visits with your online Suboxone doctor, as well as drug testing. The cost of Phase 3 is $99 per month.
