Safe, Respectful Medication Assisted Care
Opioid Use Disorder can develop from use of both prescribed and non-prescribed opioids. Sometimes referred to as opioid abuse, opioid dependence, or opioid addiction, OUD is a problematic pattern of opioid use that causes significant impairments at work, school, or home, among other criteria or distress, such as unsuccessful efforts to cut down or control use, social problems, and a failure to fulfill obligations.
According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, over 2.1 million Americans suffer from OUD, which contributed to over 47,000 overdose deaths in 2017.
Our office-based medication assisted treatment (MAT) is for people who are dependent on opioids such as heroin or prescription painkillers (i.e. oxycodone, hydrocodone, methadone, codeine, morphine, etc.) MAT works to control withdrawal or craving symptoms and is prescribed by primary care clinicians. The VCC MAT program includes medication management, counseling, group education (when available) and social service referral support to help patients achieve and maintain recovery.
Patients must be 18 years and older, with a diagnosis of Opioid Use Disorder to qualify. Recovery from addiction can help you live a healthy, productive life.
