Key Offerings

Medication for Assisted Treatment (MAT)

Buprenorphine (Cizdol, Suboxone, Subutex, Zubsolv, Bunavail, Sublocade), in combination with counseling and behavioral therapies, provides a personalized approach to the treatment of opioid use disorder. If taken as prescribed, buprenorphine is safe and effective (SAMHSA, 2019).

Naltrexone (ReVia, Depade, Vivitrol), is prescribed for both alcohol and opioid use disorder. The medication blocks the euphoric and sedative effects of these substances by binding and blocking opioid receptors.

Works together with counseling and therapy, allowing people with alcohol use and related disorders to reduce their drinking behaviors and avoid relapses. Naltrexone is not addictive, nor does it react adversely with alcohol(SAMHSA, 2019).

Other medications that are FDA approved as MAT for alcohol use disorder are available for participants. these include Acamprosate (Campral) and disulfiram (Antabuse and Antabus): Both medications are used together with behavior modification and counseling to assist people with alcohol use disorders who has recently quit drinking alcohol to stay in recovery.

MAT participants should:

  • Have been objectively diagnosed with an opioid use disorder
  • Follow safety precautions for the treatment, including follow-ups with primary care physician and treatment of chronic medical illnesses.
  • Have reviewed treatment options before agreeing to buprenorphine or naltrexone treatment
  • Multilingual Treatment Services
  • Outpatient level of care
  • Intensive Outpatient Program
  • Treatment Court Outpatient
