    Medication-assisted recovery (MAR) is the use of medications, in combination with counseling and behavioral therapies, to provide a “whole-patient” approach to the treatment of substance use disorders. Medications used in MAR are approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and MAR programs are clinically driven and tailored to meet each patient’s needs. Research shows that a combination of medication and therapy can successfully treat Substance Use Disorders, and for some people experiencing addiction, MAR can help sustain long-term recovery

    SPSI will prescribe Buprenorphine (Suboxone) and Naltrexone (Vivitrol). We will provide Naloxone (Narcan)
    Persons served for MAR will be be provided nursing services, individual therapy, group therapy, case management, recovery coaching by qualified personnel and may access psychiatric as needed.
