Frequently Asked Questions

Who is eligible?

People who are motivated to begin recovery from opiate use disorder are a good fit for this program. You can be self-referred or sent from a physician or agency. This program is for adults ages 18 and up, but others may be considered on an individual basis.

This detox program is affordable. JeffCare accepts people with and without insurance and offers a sliding-fee scale based on household income and size. JeffCare accepts Medicaid, Medicare, and many other insurances.

What are the differences between JeffCare's outpatient detox and inpatient treatment elsewhere?

At an inpatient treatment facility, you live in a residence area, sometimes a shared dorm room, for the duration of your treatment. This can mean time away from family, work, and other personal obligations.

While in opiate detox at JeffCare, you continue to live in your own home. You remain in control of your life. You can see your family in the evenings and begin rebuilding your personal life with the help and support you receive here. You take responsibility for participating in the treatment program and following your treatment plan.

Is this a methadone program?

No. This medication-assisted treatment program (MAT) uses buprenorphine. Buprenorphine is successful at managing withdrawal and preventing relapse. Many people will continue to take this medication on their own for a period of time after detox treatment ends. In combination with counseling and behavioral therapies, MAT provides a whole-person approach to healing opioid dependency.

What type of support is available after detox ends?

Every person receives an individualized treatment plan. You will have access to continued support services, individual or group counseling, and primary care services.
