Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) is the use of medications, in combination with therapy, to provide a “whole-patient” approach to the treatment of opioid addiction. MAT is designed to provide clients the opportunity to stabilize from opiate use disorder and further engage in the recovery process.

Our program is an office-based, outpatient treatment service for adults over the age of 18.  This model of opioid agonist treatment seeks to integrate the treatment of opioid addiction into general medical and psychiatric care. We work very closely with case management and outpatient therapy to offer comprehensive care to our clients.

Tribal Opioid Response Program (TOR)

The TOR program helps tribal people access recovery care.  The program offers Medication Assisted Treatment in collaboration with Cornerstone Behavioral Health. This program is designed to prevent overdose, decrease opiate dependency and promote engagement in the recovery process by reducing barriers to care.

Opioid Health Home (OHH)

An office-based MAT service, based on an integrated care delivery model provided by a team of providers focused on whole-person treatment, this service includes, but is not limited to, counseling, care coordination, medication-assisted treatment, peer recovery support, urine drug screening, and medical consultation for individuals who have been diagnosed with an opioid dependency and other chronic conditions. OHH services are available for eligible MaineCare clients and uninsured individuals with opioid use disorder.  OHH is defined as a rehabilitative service that is to be provided in the context of a supportive relationship, pursuant to an individual treatment plan that promotes a person’s recovery from Opioids and other co-occurring conditions.
