Comprehensive MAT and SUD Services at
Partnership Community Health Center
What is MAT?
Medication-Assisted Treatment/ Medication for Opioid Use Disorder (MAT/MOUD) is an evidence-based method of treating Substance Use Disorders (SUD) that involves using medication in combination with regular participation in behavioral counseling sessions that focus on relapse prevention. While MAT is commonly used to treat addiction to opiates, such as heroin and prescription pain relievers, it has also been found to be effective with a number of other substances. Research shows that this combined approach can successfully treat these disorders and, for some individuals struggling with addiction, MAT can help sustain recovery.
What our services look like
Our “whole person” approach to MAT requires a commitment to working with both primary care and behavioral health providers on a continuing basis and being able to take medications appropriately in an outpatient setting.
Partnership’s MAT and SUD services are tailored to each individual’s needs. We can dispense Suboxone, Vivitrol (injections), as well as medications such as Librium and Antabuse that may assist with withdrawal symptoms and/or block the urge to drink alcohol. Our weekly behavioral counseling uses a curriculum from Cognitive Based Interventions for Substance Abuse (CBISA) that applies techniques like motivational interviewing and recovery planning to assist you on your journey.
How do I sign up?
Call and let us know that you are interested in our MAT/SUD program. Before starting, you will meet with our primary care and behavioral health teams for an initial consultation to make sure the program is right for you. Should you be a candidate, you will receive a patient informational packet that will go through what you can expect from the program and what the team expects as part of your committed participation.
In-person appointments would take place at our medical center in Appleton. However, Partnership has the ability to provide telehealth services (via video and/or phone) if you meet the criteria.
The road to recovery from addiction is difficult, but you are not alone. We are committed to helping you on your journey. Our primary care and behavioral health teams tailor a program to YOUR needs and are with you every step of the way.
