RCBM’s Updated Policy Regarding Controlled Substance Prescriptions

Thank you for entrusting us with your mental health care. In order to provide you with the best and safest care, the Rochester Center for Behavioral Medicine has modified our protocol for the prescription of controlled substances.


Beginning in 2018, any patients being prescribed controlled substances by our office will be subject to random urine drug screens one to two times per year. In the event that your urine drug screen reveals an unexpected result, you will have an opportunity to discuss this finding with your provider in a non-judgmental, solution-focused manner.

In addition, we will be asking our patients to review and sign the attached contract to indicate your understanding of our policies related to controlled substance prescriptions.

We appreciate the opportunity to care for you!
