Medication Assisted Treatment for Opioid Use

Bridges offers life-saving treatment programs for individuals experiencing Opioid Use Disorder.

Opioids are addictive and, if misused or taken improperly, can have serious consequences. When people who are dependent on opiates try to stop, they typically experience withdrawal symptoms so unpleasant that they’re likely to start using the opiate again. These symptoms often include intense cravings for their drug/medication which makes it very hard to stop using.


Medication Assisted Treatment

Bridges offers a clinic-based medication assisted treatment (MAT) program to support individuals who are living with opioid use disorder (OUD). This program is designed to do the following:

  • Reduce withdrawal symptoms and chance of a relapse by using opioid replacement medication such as naltrexone, buprenorphine or suboxone (Bridges does not prescribe methadone in our program.) 
  • Focuses on overcoming cravings for the drug
  • Provides for each person’s recovery to help with triggers and stress which can cause relapses
  • Incorporates behavioral treatment such as counseling and family support

This treatment, when combined with counseling, is proven  to reduce opioid use, prevent overdose, and improve sustained recovery outcomes.

Bridges also offers a mobile addiction treatment option through our MATT’s Van which can provide fast and easy access for OUD recovery. Click here to visit our MATT’s Van Page to learn more.
