MAT Program - Office Based Addiction Treatment

Medication Assisted Treatment 

Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) uses medication and therapy to treat substance use. MAT is the gold standard of care, which means it is supported by scientific evidence. We know that people who use MAT are more likely to stop using substances and stay in recovery.

Our clinic prescribes  Antabuse, Campral, Naltrexone, Suboxone and Vivitrol.

How the Medications Work

MAT medications work in the brain. Each medication works differently and has different benefits. Talk to our staff about your options. We will work together to find a good fit for your recovery.
