Medication-Assisted Treatment for Heroin and Opioid Use is for people who would like to quit using opioids such as heroin or prescription pain medication. The program involves taking the medication buprenorphine (Suboxone) over a period of time to manage withdrawal symptoms and, eventually, to slowly decrease and stop use.
Some heroin and opioid users also experience other mental health concerns, like depression or trauma. Our program offers the option for help with both substance use and mental health support. Participants can choose to be connected with individual counseling, psychiatry, or with our Peer Recovery Specialist (PRS). Our PRS is a person with lived recovery experience who has been trained to work with others looking to make changes in their substance use. The PRS offers telephonic (during current COVID-19 restrictions) individual and group support.
If you think the program might be a good fit for your needs, there are two ways to learn more and get connected:
Format: daytime, opioid/heroin replacement medication, abstinence, and harm reduction
