RISE Recovery at Mid-State
Mid-State Health Center’s mission is to provide sound primary healthcare to the community that is open to all regardless of the ability to pay. Our mission and primary care model includes providing treatment and recovery services to anyone in the community with a substance use disorder, and we developed the RISE Recovery Services Program to meet this need.

Sliding fee scale is available for those are identified as income-eligible. Mid-State will also assist participants in accessing health insurance if they are uninsured.
Medication Assisted Treatment
Intensive Outpatient Treatment (IOP)
Recovery Support Services
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.
Intensive Outpatient Treatment (IOP) is a form of substance use treatment in which participants visit the treatment team a few days each week for a few hours at a time. This program is more time-intensive and includes a variety of services including group meetings and specialized programming and typically meets on weekdays in the morning or evening and lasts for several weeks depending on the progress of the participant.
Recovery Support Services are available to all participants and may include group recovery meetings, connections to resources to support fragile families, assistance with seeking employment, or applying for health insurance or financial assistance.
MAT – Medication Assisted Treatment Program
Mid-State’s RISE Recovery Program offers a Medication Assisted Treatment Program as part of our primary care model at both Plymouth and Bristol locations. 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 buprenorphine/naloxone (Suboxone) to aid in their recovery process.
While medication is effective, it is only one part of our treatment program for opioid use disorders. We highly encourage 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 are also able to treat pregnant women or women who might be pregnant, to maximize the healthy course of pregnancy while seeking medication and treatment for opioid use disorders.
Intensive Outpatient Treatment (IOP)
Intensive Outpatient Treatment (IOP) services are offered at our newest location at the Whole Village Family Resource Center in Plymouth. The services are offered in a community-based location and offer a comfortable, welcoming space for this more intensive treatment. Our IOP services provide a higher level of support. While each person develops an individual treatment plan, in general, those in our IOP program will attend sessions three times each week for a minimum of 8 weeks. These sessions are typically 3 hours and include multiple components such as individual and group counseling, medication-assisted treatment visit with a Mid-State medical provider, recovery support services, as well as education and ancillary education components to assist participants in re-establishing connections in the community.
RISE Recovery’s Intensive Outpatient Program is co-located with the Plymouth Area Recovery Connection. This helps families and those in recovery find resources and support at any point in the recovery journey.
