A New Way of Thinking
High Country Behavioral Health has been granted federal funding to provide our clients with Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) for opioid addiction. Opioid addiction can be treated. Most people need help to change addictive behavior into non-addictive, healthful patterns. Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) is treatment for addiction that includes the use of medication along with counseling and support. Medication is matched to the person through an assessment with your Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) physician. Medication is introduced carefully and it provides a safe, controlled level of medication to overcome the use of a problem opioid. This treatment may help you, or someone you care about, recover from opioid addiction.
