Medication-Assisted Treatment

We’re here to help.

Are you or a loved one struggling with opioid addiction, whether heroin or prescription pain medication? Let’s connect. We have a team of physicians at Alexandria Clinic who are certified to prescribe medications that can help patients overcome opioid addiction. This process is known as Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT).

What is Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT)?

MAT is the use of medication, in combination with counseling and behavioral therapies to provide a “whole-patient” approach to the treatment of substance use disorders.

What will these medications do?

These medications will relieve the withdrawal symptoms and psychological cravings that cause chemical imbalances within the body. Our MAT programs provide a safe and controlled level of medication that can help a patient overcome the use of an abused opioid.

What can I expect at my first visit?

Members of the care team and a physician will meet with you to assess whether MAT is a fit for you. If you are a suitable candidate, our care team will help you develop a plan of care that works best with your lifestyle. Your MAT program can be either short-term or long-term, depending on your needs.

Can I keep my visit confidential?

Yes. Our MAT appointments are integrated into our family medicine clinic so they remain confidential, like any other appointment.

It’s better here.
