Plymouth, NH – In response to the community’s need for treatment and recovery options, Mid-State Health Center is now offering Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) services in its Plymouth office in addition to its Bristol location.
The MAT program at Mid-State is an outpatient recovery option offering opioid substance use disorder treatment in an integrated model. A specialized team that includes certified physicians, behavioral health counselors, and clinical support staff offers participants a caring and safe environment, a personalized treatment plan to recovery through consistent, ongoing counseling, and medication assisted treatment. Every participant becomes a patient of the health center with full access to the comprehensive services it offers to support their recovery including primary care, dental, and social services.
Mid-State has been offering its MAT program in its Bristol office since 2015 and will continue to offer these services at that location as well.
For more information about the MAT program and opioid addiction treatment at Mid-State Health Center, call the Recovery Team at 603-536-4000, Ext: 8000 during regular business hours.
Kathie Stringham, Mid-State Health Center’s Patient Support Specialist wrote an article this month to highlight the importance of making an Advance Care Plan.

Mid-State is seeking new members to add to our “Patient Expert Advisory Team” (PEAT). Begun in January 2012, the PEAT serves as a volunteer advisory council, assisting Mid-State in improving the experience of those receiving Mid-State’s services. Who better to engage in the improvement process than the “experts”, our patients!
What is the PEAT member commitment? Team members are asked to participate in six meetings per year, one every other month. Each meeting lasts approximately one and one-half hours from 5:30 – 7:00 p.m. The meetings are typically held on the fourth Tuesday of every other month at Mid-State’s Plymouth office on Boulder Point Drive. Mid-State provides a meeting leader to help guide and engage the group in their role as an advisory council.
What exactly does the PEAT do? In order to provide a meaningful and positive patient experience, Mid-State engages its patient advisory team on a variety of topics, including upcoming Mid-State projects and initiatives, changes in care delivery, marketing, suggestions for quality improvement and other areas that benefit from patient feedback.
If you are interested in participating in this exciting opportunity to help Mid-State improve and enhance services for patients, please contact:
