Medications for Opioid Use Disorder (MOUD) Also known as Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT)
Do I need this service?
MOUD/MAT service is for anyone who takes and is dependent on prescription or recreational opioids. This includes short-acting opioids such as heroin, morphine and codeine, as well as synthetic opioids, including oxycodone, OxyContin, and hydrocodone. You can develop a tolerance to opioids which puts you at a greater risk for misuse or overdose.
How can this service help me?
Our providers have met the required qualifications to provide office-based treatment for opioid addiction using buprenorphine (Suboxone) and Naltrexone. These medications, when taken in stable doses as part of a medically supervised treatment plan, can permit a person to lead a normal and productive life without any of the narcotic effects of heroin and/or other opioids abuse or misuse. The use of medications in combination with counseling and behavioral therapies can help many people sustain recovery.
If I am pregnant, can I get this service at SIPH?

Are there other treatment options for Opioid Use Disorder?

Can I get treated for alcohol, meth, or another substance?
No, we do not offer treatment for alcohol, meth or any other substance abuse disorder.
