Medication Assisted Treatment

Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT)

MAT with On Demand Counseling and Opiate Recovery assists in treating opioid use disorders through individual and group counseling and FDA-approved medications. Medication assisted treatment is a research-proven method in helping clients achieve long-term, sustainable recovery over time.

Medications Used in Medication Assisted Treatment are given to help manage the intense cravings of withdrawal and reduce the likelihood of relapse. Leading medications in MAT Treatment are Naloxone (Narcan), Vivitrol, and Buprenorphine (Suboxone)


Research has shown that MAT Treatment:

Normalizes brain chemistry 

Blocks the euphoric effect of substance use 

Relieves psychological cravings 

Normalizes body functions without negative effects

We assist clients in achieving long-term, sustainable recovery. 

On Demand takes a “whole-patient” approach when it comes to treatment for clients struggling with drug and alcohol dependence.  Here, opioid use disorders are treated through a combination of individual and group counseling and prescribed medication.  Our goal is to provide each client with the support, counseling medication and structure needed for recovery.
