Counseling Services

At Morse Clinic, we know that overcoming addiction is about so much more than removing withdrawal symptoms and reducing cravings. An important part of achieving long-term recovery is acknowledging and overcoming the emotional or psychological issues that may have contributed to your addiction.

That is why our opioid addiction treatment programs require participation in counseling to identify factors that may have led to substance abuse and may need to be addressed in order to live a drug-free future.

Individual therapy involves working with a counselor in a one-on-one setting to openly discuss a patient’s addiction to heroin, morphine, or prescription medications. The benefits of utilizing individual therapy can include the following:

  • Forming new, healthy ways to cope with stress
  • Handling setbacks and victories during treatment
  • Creating strategies for preventing or handling situations in which using substances might be tempting
  • Forming goals for the present and future

All individual counseling at Morse Clinic is provided by experienced counselors with expertise in helping people like you overcome the emotional and psychological challenges associated with opioid addiction. 

As a patient, you will be required to meet with your counselor at least once a month during your first year of treatment. 

Fast Facts

What do I have to do to earn take homes?

You must meet with your counselor to complete a Treatment Team Request form to be considered for take-home privileges. Decisions regarding take-home doses are made by the Medical Director in consultation with members of the clinical team. 

Your counselor can provide you with a Take Home Criteria Checklist.

What do I do if I miss a treatment day?

If you need to cancel, you must provide 24 hours notice. Failure to observe counseling attendance rules will result in your dose being held on the next day that you arrive at the clinic, until your counselor is able to see you to remove the hold. 

If you miss 2 days in a row, your dose will be decreased by half. If you miss 4 days or more in a row, you will need to see the program physician for reinstatement before you can be dosed again. After 30 days, you will be discharged and must be readmitted to continue your treatment. 

Can I work while on methadone and also take drug screens?

If you are using opioids or other substances, a positive result will be detected on a drug screen. Methadone alone will not create a positive result on a drug screen. 

How long does it take to dose?

Typically, after the intake day, just a few minutes. We have multiple dosing windows and work very hard to have little to no line.

How do I get started?

To schedule intake, call us today. Please bring a valid photo ID, insurance card, list of medications you are taking, and intake and treatment fees to your intake appointment. 

Can I transfer from a different clinic?

Yes! In order to transfer to Morse Clinic, you or your current clinic must provide documentation for the following in advance: copy of UDS for the past 6 months, dosing record, and discharge/transfer paperwork. These documents must be reviewed by the intake team before you can begin dosing at Morse Clinic. 

This is the best methadone clinic I have been in. The staff cares about you. Thanks for opening a clinic in Henderson.

A screening is the first step in the treatment process. Submit this form and a licensed counselor will contact you to perform a no obligation, no cost screening to determine what level of care you require.
