Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT):
Methadone is a medication administered daily for opioid use disorder under monitored, controlled conditions in the clinic. Methadone has been utilized for years with a great deal of research determining its safety and effectiveness. Once patients begin taking methadone at appropriate doses, withdrawal is avoided, cravings are minimized, and physical and mental stabilization occurs.
Individual and Group Counseling:
For the first year of treatment in the program, patients are required to attend individual and group counseling. Behavioral health services are critical to substance abuse treatment and assist patients in learning about issues such as the science behind addiction, relapse prevention, and how to manage cravings and related behaviors. Trained counselors function simultaneously as teachers and coaches, fostering a positive and encouraging relationship to reinforce behavior change and recovery.
Case Management Services:
Case management focuses on assisting patients with building connections within their community to help support their recovery. Counselors have broad knowledge of community resources and work to link patients to healthcare, insurance and other benefits, educational institutions, sober living facilities, support groups, housing, and other social service agencies. In addition, counselors may help to coordinate care with the patient’s physicians, referring agencies, and/or the court system.
