Expanding Local Options for Recovery

Published on: 12/16/2019

Many people from all walks of life have become dependent on opioid medications and substances such as heroin.  In 2014, Mid-State added Medication Assisted Treatment to its primary care model to begin to address the opioid crisis affecting families in the region.  Medication Assisted Treatment is the use of medications in combination with counseling and behavioral therapies for the treatment of substance use disorders.  Mid-State offers a robust recovery model with 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.

While this outpatient model is effective for many in recovery, there are members in our community who are in desperate need of a higher level of treatment.  To compound the challenges, travel distances and long waitlists are common barriers to receiving this higher level of care.

There is hope on the horizon.  Mid-State will soon launch a more intensive level of recovery services that include multi-hour sessions, multiple days each week, know as Intensive Outpatient Treatment.  This new program will be co-located with the Plymouth Area Recovery Connection (PARC) at the Whole Village Family Center.

The co-location of these organizations will maximize outreach efforts, provide a centralized and easily identifiable location for treatment and recovery supports in an atmosphere that participants at any level of recovery will feel comfortable and welcomed.
