Frequently Asked Questions

What can I expect as a new patient?

After scheduling an appointment, we will review your main concerns and many questions will be asked about current and past health status and habits. Labs will also be ordered, and another appointment will be set for review and to develop a plan as a team.

Do you accept walk-ins?

Not at this time. You must call (505) 730-5020 to make an appointment. Appointments are generally scheduled from 9Am-3PM but afterhours and weekend appointments can be arranged.

Do you treat adolescents?

Yes! We excel at educating and supporting adolescents  to live healthy lifestyles. 

Do you offer telehealth?

Yes! 

What medications do you commonly prescribe for addiction?

Suboxone is the most well-known FDA approved medication used to treat opioid dependence. Suboxone helps relieve symptoms of opiate withdrawal and suppresses cravings. It is actually the combination of two different drugs: buprenorphine (a partial opioid agonist) and naloxone (a pure opioid antagonist).
Naltrexone is a medication that works in the brain to treat dependence on alcohol or opioids. Naltrexone works by blocking the effect of opioid receptors and decreasing cravings and urges to use alcohol or opioids. Naltrexone also comes in a brand-name injectable form called Vivitrol. Vivitrol is a monthly injection.
