You Asked, We Answered
WHICH ADDICTIONS DO YOU TREAT?
MAT is primarily used for the treatment of addiction to opioids such as herion and prescription pain relievers. The prescribed medication operates to normalize brain chemistry, block euphoric effects of the opioids, relieve physiological cravings, and normalize body functions without the negative and euphoric effects of the substance used.
We also treat alcohol dependence with vivitrol injections.
We soon will be offering methamphetamine addiction through the TRUST Program.
Along with the treatments above, we also incorporate counseling sessions with every appointment.
WHAT’S YOUR SUCCESS RATE?
The ultimate goal of MAT is full recovery, including the ability to live a self-directed life. This treatment approach has been shown to improve patient survival and increase retention in treatment. It has also showed to decrease illicit opiate use and other criminal activity among people with substance use disorders and increase patients' ability to gain and maintain employment. It has also been shown to improve birth outcomes among pregnant women who have substance use disorders. These medications and therapies can contribute to lowering a person's risk of contracting HIV or hepatitis C by reducing the potential for relapse.
DO YOU TAKE WALK-INS OR IS IT APPOINTMENT ONLY?
We do accept walk-ins. You can stop by the office from 8AM-4PM Tuesday-Friday to fill out a new patient packet and we can get you started!
