Outpatient Admissions

To be seen at New Horizons, call for a confidential appointment. 


Patients being considered for admission will be confidentially evaluated on an individual basis through a systematic assessment process.

An initial screening followed by a comprehensive interview with a professional counselor to determine medical, psychiatric, substance abuse and psychosocial information will be provided.  Patients found to appropriate for services will then be scheduled for a physical examination and upon admittance will be medicated appropriately and treatment started.  Persons found not to be appropriate for opioid treatment will be referred to other services.
