Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) is a treatment method for long-term opiate addiction. The MAT Program uses either Suboxone or Vivitrol. Suboxone is administered orally (daily); Vivitrol is an injectable medication administered monthly. Use of Suboxone or Vivitrol in combination with comprehensive treatment services allows individuals to function effectively without intoxication, impairment or fear of withdrawal symptoms. MAT is provided conjunctively with a full array of outpatient and/or residential services. Treatment is collaborative and individualized. Involvement of family or other support persons is essential to achieving a successful outcome.
The goal is to reach and maintain the best possible level of functioning while working toward a drug and alcohol free lifestyle.
Below is a video explaining the MAT Program and how you can set up an appointment or walk-in.
