Why Choose Resilience Health
OUR SUCCESS RATES
We stand out by offering a proven medical treatment for long-term recovery. Our outpatient approach ensures frequent appointments and includes telemedicine visits over 24 months, setting us apart from short term treatments. Short duration, 30-90 day programs generally have improved success when combined with a long term medical follow up. Studies have shown that programs lasting longer than 18 months when including buprenorphine maintenance treatment, have improved outcomes. Many patients need the life structure taught by inpatient programs and should attend a 30 to 90 day inpatient program before starting our long term outpatient medical treatment, producing the highest success rates possible. We will help refer you to our preferred inpatient programs.
Buprenorphine is a medication that partially stimulates the opioid receptors, alleviating physical withdrawal and cravings long term. It begins working immediately to help discontinue opioid use beginning on day one. It is very safe with allergic reactions being exceedingly rare. It also has a very low overdose risk. We customize the dose to every patient’s needs. This treatment allows patients to return to their previous high level of functioning, in their jobs, at home, and socially very quickly, often within 4-5 days (depending on severity of withdrawal, they may not need to miss any work).
We support patients with a combination of in clinic and telehealth visits. Our program includes over 150 visits over the two years (19 visits within the first month). Initial evaluations by licensed medical providers are alway in person in the clinic. In person, in clinic visits with the provider remain an important part of treatment over the two years, but are flexible based on each patient's needs. About 75% of visits will be by telehealth. Important components of success that we require include having a primary care physician, therapist, pharmacy, and membership with a support program (such as Narcotics Anonymous). Patients can choose to use their own pharmacy and therapist, or they may choose to use the mail order pharmacy service that we are associated with that will deliver medications confidentially to their mailbox. We also partner with a therapy service that provides virtual group therapy sessions that patients can choose to use for their convenience.
I love that Dr. Tomco listens. It doesn't matter how I ramble about a health problem, be listens, then asks pointed questions to clarify. I'd recommend this practice to anyone.
