Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) combines behavioral therapy and counseling, case management and FDA-approved medications to treat substance use disorders. MAT utilizes a multitude of different medication options that can be tailored to fit the unique needs of the individual. MAT is most commonly used to treat alcohol and opioid use disorders. It reduces cravings, prevents withdrawal and helps normalize brain function. This program has admission guidelines that require individuals to evidence motivation in their treatment, as well as requirements for attendance and engagement to continue receiving assistive medication. This program is operated in collaboration with the Knox Community Hospital and Foster’s Pharmacy.
