NO FAMILY IS IMMUNE
Rich or poor, young or old, urban or rural, highly educated or less so, opioid use disorder impacts a vast number of individuals and families. Opioids are often the healthcare provider’s first choice for treatment of pain, but ongoing use, can cause a chronic disorder of the brain, opioid use disorder (OUD). Medication assisted treatment (MAT), is an effective evidence-based treatment for opioid use disorder. Methadone and buprenorphine are the two medications used for OUD. No matter which medication is selected, our goal is the same. Getting the patient to feel normal, without cravings and withdrawal symptoms. But MAT is not just medications, it is often misunderstood. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) specifically notes MAT is to be used “in combination with counseling and behavioral therapies, to provide a whole-patient approach to the treatment of OUD.”
Our Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) program is monitored by our Medical Director, Dr. Miriam Adelson and provides medication assisted treatment services to all persons presenting with an opioid use disorder in a safe and dignified environment. When prescribed and monitored by a Medical Doctor, methadone and buprenorphine are a legal medication. Patients admitted to treatment receive an individualized dosage of medication daily, prepared and dispensed by a licensed nurse.
All persons seeking medication assisted treatment services must provide legal identification. We also consider prior treatment history, legal circumstances, mental health, and indicated drug(s) use when assessing eligibility for methadone & buprenorphine admission. Persons determined to be inappropriate for treatment will be advised of the reason(s) and referred to alternative treatment services. Methadone and buprenorphine admission adheres to the federal and state guidelines.
FEDERAL AND STATE REGULATIONS
In the United States, the treatment of opioid dependence with medication is governed by the Certification of Opioid Treatment Programs, 42 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) 8. This regulation created a system to accredit and certify opioid treatment programs (OTPs). OTPs provide medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for people diagnosed with an opioid-use disorder. MAT patients also must receive counseling, which can include different forms of behavioral therapy.
