At Specialists Medication Assisted Treatment, patients receive customized treatment under the care of our board certified doctors, nurse practitioners, and counselors. Medication assisted treatment is an effective response to opioid use disorder, and along with counseling that focuses on relapse prevention and making behavioral changes, patients can maintain sobriety. Opioid use disorder is different. It is not a sign of weakness.
Most people cannot just walk away from their addiction. They need help, like medication assisted treatment, to change addictive behavior into nonaddictive, healthful patterns. Opioid addiction is a chronic disease, like heart disease or diabetes. A chronic disease is a medical condition for life. It cannot be cured, but it can be managed. At Specialists Medication Assisted Treatment, we help patients turn their addiction into a healthy, productive life. This is called recovery.
