Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) Program for Opioid Addiction
Mid-State Health Center offers a Medication Assisted Treatment Program as part of our primary care model at both Plymouth and Bristol. Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) is the use of medications in combination with counseling and behavioral therapies for the treatment of substance use disorders. This combination of therapies is effective and can help some patients to sustain recovery.
The MAT program at Mid-State addresses the current opioid crisis. Many people from all walks of life have become dependent on opioid medications (Vicodin, Percocet, oxycodone) and substances (heroin and Fentanyl). Our patient-centered approach values and encourages treatment of the whole patient. We have assembled a specialized team dedicated to helping patients achieve sobriety and live a life free of substances. Our goal is to help our patients learn to live without drugs by developing healthier coping skills during their course of treatment.
Treatment that includes medication is often a good choice for opioid use disorders. Buprenorphine is an FDA approved medication for treatment of heroin or other opioid use disorders (oxycodone, hydrocodone, methadone). As part of the management of opioid misuse disorders in Mid-State’s MAT program, our patients are prescribed either buprenorphine/naloxone (Suboxone) or if pregnant, buprenorphine (Subutex) to aid in their recovery process.
While medication is effective, it is only one part of our treatment program for opioid use disorders. We require all participants in our MAT program to participate in regular ongoing counseling with one of our behavioral health specialists in order to identify patterns of use and learn effective coping strategies. We work with pregnant women or women who might be pregnant, to maximize the healthy course of pregnancy while seeking medication and treatment for opioid use disorders.
