Is MAT right for me?
Since MAT involves prescription medications, it is not for everyone. Some medications are unsafe for people with certain health conditions. It is important for a candidate to discuss one’s health conditions with our providers experienced in MAT. They will let you know about the risks, treatment options and requirements for successfully completing treatment.
Building your MAT support team
Research shows that MAT can increase the chances of successful recovery from opiate use, but medications alone is usually not enough. Midtown Health Center’s Integrated care model brings Medical, behavioral health, and support services together in collaboration with the patients existing support structure to develop a recovery environment that fosters high outcomes and patient success.
