Community Health Care’s MAT team is available to offer non-judgmental, safe, care and support for those with opioid dependence.

What is MAT (Medication Assisted Treatment)?

Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) is the use of medications, in combination with counseling and behavioral therapies, to provide a “whole-patient” approach to the treatment of opioid use disorders. Treatment is confidential and supportive. Counseling

Additional services are available as identified by the MAT provider and patient care team. The medications used can relieve withdrawal symptoms and cravings, helping people to feel more “normal.”  MAT programs provide a safe and controlled delivery of medication to overcome the use of an abused opioid, thereby removing the danger of using street drugs for the same purpose. Research has shown that when provided at the proper dose, medications used in MAT have proven to be effective in improving overall well-being and decreasing the risk of relapse, with a low potential for adverse effects.
