Medication Assisted Treatment

Community Counseling Center's Medication Assisted Treatment Program (also referred to as Medication Assisted Recovery) is for individuals who are addicted to prescription painkillers or other opium-derived drugs and is based on well-documented research showing that the most effective treatment for opiate dependency addresses both the physical and psycho-social aspects of addiction. Our program, therefore, takes both a medical and a clinical approach to helping overcome one's need for drugs. We utilize Buprenorphine and Naltrexone in order to ease cravings and control physical symptoms while a range of clinical services are employed to help surmount any social, psychological or environmental barrier to a clean and sober life. The program is an outpatient service and is capable of treating people with dual diagnoses.

We believe that recovery is a concept that works, and that Medication Assisted treatment is a best practice with regard to Opiate Dependency. Further, we believe that recovery lies on a fluid continuum, and that clients may fall into different points on that continuum at different parts of their day or year. Our approach relies on the fact that individuals need truly individualized treatment. We also feel that our agency’s focus on engagement of clients, regardless of their readiness to change, produces better outcomes in the long term than a traditional approach would otherwise generate.

As with all of the services and programs of Community Counseling Center, the MAT Program is centered on you as an individual. Our staff will assess your emotional, behavioral, physical, and social make-up in order to provide a more comprehensive approach to your treatment. This includes consideration of - and sensitivity to - your culture, gender, age and sexual orientation.

Our services are designed to support, motivate and guide your progress through treatment. The MAT Program employs practices proven to be effective in addressing substance abuse, mental health and related issues.
