The purpose of the Medication Assisted Therapy (MAT) program is to provide quality treatment for individuals living with Opioid Use Disorder.
Individuals must have a diagnosed Opioid Use Disorder. MAT is not for everyone. Medication Assisted Treatment is for individuals who are motivated to stop using opioids and who can comply with the MAT expectations. MAT clients are expected to be able to live independently and maintain employment (except in situations when they are unable to do so due to disability). Clients who require extensive detoxification and prolonged, intensive treatment, are not appropriate for MAT at Daily Planet Health Services (DPHS) until they have completed more intensive treatment.
Prospective MAT clients should first complete the DPHS patient registration process. Information on how to register as a new patient is available here. From there, they may complete a mental health intake with a behavioral health clinician to determine if they are appropriate for the program.
