Medication-Assisted Treatment

Helping you on your path to recovery, right here at CHDC.

What is Medication-Assisted Treatment?

Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) is the use of medications to treat opioid use disorder and alcoholism.

We have developed a strong program that includes a board-certified recovery specialist and a licensed professional medical team who specialize in treatment for opioid use disorder and alcoholism. These experts work together to provide a whole treatment program, rather than just supplying medication to treat the disease.

Opioid use disorder affects 2.1 million people in the United States. There are over 120,000 deaths worldwide annually attributed to opioids. Not choosing to use medication for opioid use disorder increases the risk of overdose when compared to choosing treatment with Buprenorphine or Naltrexone.

Treatments provided at CHDC

  Buprenorphine (Suboxone, Subutex, Sublocade)

  Naltrexone (Vivitrol)

Here at CHDC, we understand that no single treatment is appropriate for everyone but in order to be effective, treatment needs to be readily available. We tailor treatment to meet each patient's needs and provide individualized care.

Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) is just one tool in the toolbox that we use to help patients in their recovery journey. Our team works with patients throughout their treatment to monitor for illicit drug use, Hepatitis C treatment and coordination, and to provide integrated behavioral health counseling.
