Dr. Dubin lectures and teaches regularly on the field of Addiction Medicine. As a family physician and addiction medical specialist at the Healing Arts Family Medicine Clinic, he pursues effective healing strategies that proactively confront the challenges of addiction; helping to create long term solutions through evidence-based comprehensive treatment plans that address the complex physical, biochemical, psychological, social, emotional, and spiritual challenges that are often observed with addiction.
In 2006, Dr. Dubin started one of the first outpatient treatment centers in the country that incorporated holistic integrative strategies with conventional medical therapies, incorporating integrated tracks for patients with co-occurring chronic pain and / or psychiatric conditions. His philosophy speaks to an audience that has found long-lasting recovery elusive, a medical system fragmented, and real answers demanding an integrative and holistic approach; these principles are based on the 3 core components and A-Z guide for long term recovery stressed in Dr. Dubin’s book, The User’s Guide to Not Using – An Expert Guide to Recovery from Addiction.

HEARTS – FAQ
What is HEARTS?
Hearts or Healing Arts Recovery & Treatment Services is an outpatient program designed
to assist people in treating addiction. The program is run within the Healing Arts Family
Where do I start?
Any individuals interested in being evaluated for admission to HEARTS begin with an initial
assessment with our Clinical Director, Donna Goldstrom. Often, this is followed by a
medical assessment from our addiction medicine certified team, headed by Dr. Dubin. Call
Sarah at 970-669-2849 to get on the schedule for an initial assessment.
Does HEARTS take insurance?
At present, our medical component takes most insurances. Our behavioral component,
which includes the initial assessment, and any ongoing group or individual counseling, is
fee for service, with payment expected at the time of service. A superbill that outlines ALL of
the behavioral services rendered will be provided to you which you can then submit to your
insurance company for possible reimbursement. We do NOT take Medicaid at this time.
Can I get medicines without counseling?
Yes and no. All individuals would need to start with an initial assessment with our Clinical
Director where a behavioral track is individualized and tailored to the person's needs. If a
medical evaluation is recommended it is possible that medication can be prescribed without
behavioral requirements. The only exception to this is if an individual is receiving controlled
substances, such as Buprenorphine (Suboxone, Zubsolv, etc.), and is in the MAT
(Medication Assisted Treatment) track at HEARTS. These individuals will be required to
participate in some sort of behavioral component at the very least monthly. The details of
these commitments are made on a case by case basis by the HEARTS team. If MAT is
being provided, ongoing medication prescribing is contingent on participation in the
Can I keep my present counselor and still get my Suboxone from HEARTS?
Yes. The initial assessment with our Clinical Director would still be needed, but as long as
our clinical staff is able to verify your ongoing counseling with an outside counselor, the only
behavioral requirement would be a 'check-in' with our Clinical Director every 90 days for 30
minutes. If you stopped going to your outside counselor or it could not be verified, you
would have to participate in HEARTS behavioral programming to continue to receive your
Can I just get counseling from HEARTS and not see the doctor?
Yes. You would start with the initial assessment with our Clinical Director who would help
you create an individualized behavioral program that may or may not include a medical
How much counseling do I have to participate in?
That will be decided by our clinical team after your assessment with our Clinical Director. It
could be as much as twice a week to as little as once a month.
How often do I have to be seen to get medication?
That will be determined throughout your treatment by our clinical team. Usually
appointments are monthly (after induction for patients being prescribed Buprenorphine) but
could be less or more frequent than that.
When can I schedule?
Our medical office is open Mon-Fri 9-5. Our behavioral services are offered Mondays 8am-
8pm and Wednesdays 3:30pm-7pm. Contact Sarah at 970-669-2849 to secure a spot for your initial assessment
