CHC has a wide range of treatment options, including programming for all three FDA-approved medication assisted treatment medications. CHC’s first Opioid Treatment Program (OTP) began in 1974. Patients in medication assisted treatment (MAT) receive both medication and counseling services as a part of their treatment. MAT is a highly effective, evidence-based practice in which medication stabilizes brain function and allows the patient to return to optimal functioning. MAT allows a patient to focus on recovery, obtain or maintain employment, be a more effective parent, and significantly reduce the health, legal and emotional consequences of addiction. Counseling programs include individual and group counseling, case management, relapse prevention education, parenting classes, and educational/vocational assistance. Multiple levels of care are available to fulfill the needs of each patient on their individualized plan.
