    Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) 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 MAT are approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and MAT 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, MAT can help sustain long-term recovery


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