Dr. Katz has been a Suboxone provider for several years.
The treatment of addiction and opioid use disorder in pregnant and non-pregnant women is treated with compassion, individualization and care in our office. Each prospective patient gets a one-on-one interview to assess readiness for treatment and to assess if Suboxone is a good fit. If we are able to determine that the patient is a good candidate, she undergoes medication induction in our office and gets immediately introduced to our Women’s Specialty Services personnel, who begin the process of helping the patient with any additional social obstacles that are present that are impeding her health goals.
Most importantly, we at Laura A. Katz MD PC realize that addiction is a disease, not a choice!
