Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT)

We are happy to announce that we are currently offering addiction treatment services at our 16 health center locations. Under the direction of the Director of Behavioral Health Krystle Herbert LMFT, we have put together a team of Addiction Medicine Psychiatrists, LCSWs, and addiction treatment counselors in order to provide comprehensive addiction treatment that offers Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) services as well as individual and group therapies. We are able to provide addiction services for drug classes. However, the medication assists those who may be addicted to opioids, such as heroin or prescription medications, an opportunity to have an alternative that will manage their cravings to use and abuse substances while they simultaneously work with our team in order to learn how to navigate life without abusing substances. For many the problem is stopping their use because of the cravings and withdrawal, and this program will help them with the physiological effects of tapering off drugs.
