Medication Management & Access

Medication evaluation and monitoring services may be provided in conjunction with psychotherapy or as stand-alone treatments for those who don’t need therapy. Clients aren’t required to be on any medication to gain access to other mental health services.

For substance use disorders, medication-assisted treatment (MAT) can work more effectively than counseling, behavioral therapies, or medication alone. This “whole patient” approach combines counseling and other therapies with prescription medications shown to help people overcome cravings and addiction. Our medical staff provides psychiatric consultations to staff, case conferences, psychiatric diagnostic evaluations, medication management, and prescriptions.

What is VIVITROL®?

How does VIVITROL® work?

VIVITROL® is a long-acting, antagonist medication (naltrexone), that blocks receptors in the brain from the effects of opiates and/or alcohol, for approximately one month at a time. If a client uses opiates and/or alcohol they will not experience the euphoric effects, which helps decrease substance use.
