Addiction and Substance Abuse Treatment

There is help and hope if you’re struggling with addiction or substance abuse. When you come to Mary’s Center, you can expect safe and confidential care from our trusted team of clinicians. Our program is founded on the principle of radical respect of all patients and our goal is to help you on your path to recovery by providing:

  • Access to Suboxone* and other medications through our Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) program 
  • Care coordination services
  • Narcan/Naloxone training
  • Risk reduction interventions 
  • Resources and education 
  • Referrals to mental health, medical, and social services at Mary’s Center and external partners 

*Suboxone  has been clinically proven to be a safe and effective treatment option for people who are struggling with opioid  addiction. 

Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) at Mary’s Center

Mary’s Center offers Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) if you are struggling with opioid or alcohol use. We use buprenorphine (Suboxone) and naltrexone (Vivitrol) —safe and clinically proven treatments— as key parts of our MAT program to help you reduce and then stop substance abuse. Patients who have used these medications have reported experiencing a decrease in cravings and diminished withdrawal symptoms. Here’s what you can expect if you decide to try the MAT program: 

  • You will meet with a Mary’s Center medical staff member for an assessment.  
  • Your medical provider will gather your medical history and review clinic protocols and requirements. 
  • You will be scheduled at least weekly as your dose is adjusted. After that, your visits may be extended to weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly.
  • You will not be prescribed buprenorphine during your first visit or if you are taking  illicit benzodiazepines  or stimulants. 
  • We accept all Medicaid MCO’s, Medicare, and private insurances.  If you do not have insurance, you can be assessed for our sliding scale fee and there may be resources to pay for your medication.
