Opioid Use Disorder and other substance use disorders are a national epidemic. Medication Assisted Treatment, MAT, combines the use of medications like buprenorphine, or naltrexone with counseling and behavioral therapies. More people are finding this combination helps them make the changes they want in their lives.

MAT Behavioral Counseling (LCSW) provides weekly/monthly substance use counseling on:

  • Substance use education and medications
  • Harm reduction, relapse prevention
  • Urge surfing
  • Mindfulness
  • Physical health and nutrition in recovery
  • Motivational interviewing.

Our MAT Program empowers patients to navigate thoughts and challenges while reducing and/or abstaining from opioids, alcohol, stimulants, cannabis, benzos, and amphetamines. In addition to working with our behavioral health consultants, patients also receive support from our Peer to Peer Specialists. Our Peer to Peer Specialists use personal lived experience with addiction and recovery to help patients identify and build on strengths. They help patients discover coping techniques while exploring community support and resources to achieve long term recovery.

  • We provide MAT for opioid and stimulant use disorders to all in need. You can be on any insurance plan or no insurance. We are also open to all regardless of immigration status
  • If you are already a patient we can provide counseling and referrals to treatment for alcohol or other substances

If you are ready to get started or have questions the best thing to do is to contact our MAT team at 312-590-2291 at any time.
