Guest Dosing

We understand that circumstances arise that you cannot make it to your “home” clinic to receive medication. Community Medical Services offers courtesy dosing to individuals enrolled in other opioid treatment programs who make arrangements ahead of time. If you need to arrange courtesy dosing, locate a clinic on our location map and contact the clinic for courtesy dosing price information. We request that you set up courtesy dosing with CMS at least 7 days in advance.

CMS requires a written request, including the following information to arrange courtesy dosing at one of our clinics:

  • Client name
  • Signed release of information
  • Opioid treatment medication and dose amount
  • Privilege level
  • Dates of courtesy dose (must include start and end dates)

When you arrive at a CMS clinic to courtesy dose, please bring your photo ID. You will be asked to show your ID when you check in at the front desk.

If you are CMS client needing to courtesy dose, please speak with your counselor to make arrangements.

The fine print:

Please note that due to federal requirements, you cannot courtesy dose for more than 28 days.

Community Medical Services reserves the right to refuse courtesy dosing to any individual. Reasons for refusal include (but are not limited to) inappropriate behavior, presenting at the clinic impaired, providing false information, lack of picture ID, or inability to pay.
