For Professionals

Primary care physicians that are not equipped to handle patients with an addiction history, or who do not prescribe Buprenorphine are encouraged to refer patients to Morse Clinic for help. It is against the law for physicians to prescribe Methadone for opioid addiction unless it is less than 72 hours to bridge the gap to get a patient into treatment.

At Morse Clinic, we offer Medication Assisted Therapy - combining Buprenorphine or Methadone treatment with individual and group counseling - to individuals over the age of 18 who are struggling with opioid addiction.

In order to be admitted to our treatment programs, patients must be seen by the Program Physician for an evaluation and physical exam. TB testing is done upon admission and annually; all patients are given a PPD test for TB. Syphilis and HIV testing is referred out to the patient’s County Health Department upon request and often offered in our clinics quarterly.

Each patient’s case is reviewed annually and/or periodically by their Counselor, Program Director, and Medical Director. 

Fast Facts For Professionals

Can I refer a patient being treated at a different opioid treatment facility?

Yes.  Patients that wish to transfer from another clinic must provide the following documentation in advance: copy of UDS for the past 6 months, dosing record, and official discharge/transfer paperwork. These documents need to be reviewed by the Morse Clinic intake team before a decision will be made.

Can I refer a hospitalized patient to Morse Clinic?

Yes.  When patients are discharged from the hospital, they will need proper documentation confirming the date, time, medications, and milligrams of their last Methadone or Buprenorphine dose when they arrive at or return to our clinics.

Can I refer patients on BABs to a Methadone treatment program?

Yes.  Use of benzodiazepines, alcohol, or barbiturates in combination with Methadone or Buprenorphine may cause a decrease in breathing ability and blood pressure, as well as death. Morse Clinic has a BAB Free Policy.

Patients being referred to Morse Clinic must be willing to be assessed by medical staff and agree to detoxification from BAB, which may include being prescribed another medication to address any documented co-occurring mental health issues. If benzodiazepines or barbiturates are necessary for a specific physical or mental health condition, we will require detailed documentation and a release of information signed by the prescribing physician. Approval will occur on a case-by-case basis.

Can I refer a pregnant patient to Morse Clinic?

Yes.  Please do.  Patients who are pregnant have priority status to be admitted into a treatment program at Morse Clinic. We refer pregnant clients to OB/GYN clinics for additional prenatal care, if necessary.
