Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT)
Medication-Assisted Treatment for Opioid Use Disorder
Medication assisted treatment consists of medical visits with a certified physician to determine your diagnosis and to manage your treatment. Behavioral health practitioners such as our counselors and case managers will also provide behavioral health visits.
After being diagnosed you will see your doctor, counselor, and case managers on a regular basis as they provide your treatment. All of these services are ways to help you stay on the path to recovery and manage the challenges along the way.
