All patients must be over 18 years of age and must be dependent on opioids, with and interest in quitting. We treat pregnant women who are opioid-dependent.
You must bring ID (State ID, passport, or driver’s license), social security card, medical records from previous addic3on clinics (if applicable), and bottles of all current medica3ons on your first visit.
Unlike other clinics which charge a very high price for the first visit and then more normal price for follow-up appointments, all office visits are the same low price, regardless of it is the first visit or the last visit. For more informa3on on the cost of office visits at CARE Clinic, please call 662/508-0098.
We expect all pa3ents to be in opioid withdrawal for more than 12 hours at the 3me of their first visit (unless the pa3ent is pregnant). In order to accomplish this, you will have to call CARE Clinic at least 24 hours before your first visit. Also, you should expect to be in the clinic for about 1 hour on your first visit only.
All patients must be accompanied by a driver on the first visit only.
We do accept insurance.
Drug addiction is a treatable disease and can be successfully managed. The best way to ensure success is by combining pharmacological treatment (Medication) with behavioral therapy to counteract the powerful disruptive effects that drug addiction has on the patient’s brain and behavior. Even though there is no cure for drug addiction, the recovery process does get easier as people regain control of their lives.
Relapse to drug abuse does NOT mean that treatment has failed, In fact, many people addicted to drugs do relapse since the treatment of this chronic disease requires modifying behaviors which are deeply imbedded in the person. Anyone who relapses to drug abuse will require adjustments to his/her current treatment (including behavioral therapy).
In addiction to combining pharmacological treatment (medication) and behavior therapy, a person addicted to drugs should avoid all exposure to drugs and any cues linked to his/her drug expense (such as people/place/things/moods).

Confidentiality starts with your first phone call and continues with all future calls/visits to our clinic, unless you give us written permission to inform others that you are a patient at CARE Clinic. We maintain complete compliance with HIPAA and all laws/statues regarding patient privacy.
