Medication Assisted Treatment

Offers medication-assisted (Suboxone) treatment for opioid dependence in combination with education, counseling and other support services that focus on the behavioral aspects of opioid addiction. The medication allows one to regain a normal state of mind, free of the withdrawal symptoms, cravings and drug-induced highs and lows of addiction. Medication-assisted treatment is akin to using medication to treat other chronic illnesses, such as heart disease or diabetes.
