Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT)

Shoreline BHS, in partnership with SC Primary Care Specialists, now offers Shoreline clients access to primary healthcare and evidence-based Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) services. This treatment approach has been shown to:

  • Improve birth outcomes among women with substance use disorders while pregnant
  • Decrease opiate/opioid use and overdose deaths
  • Increase retention in, and satisfaction with, treatment
  • Improve well-being through effective management of withdrawal symptoms

SC Primary Care Specialists offers two F.D.A approved drugs for opioid treatment — buprenorphine (Suboxone), and naltrexone (Vivitrol) — and are proven safe and effective, combined with counseling and other behavioral intervention strategies. These treatment options show promise in treating addiction by reducing overall drug cravings and managing withdrawal symptoms.

At Shoreline, we provide comprehensive, confidential services to provide clients with the best treatment services and the ability to live a self-directed life on the road to recovery. We provide an environment that builds on existing strengths, while giving clients the confidence to manage substance use disorders and/or other healthcare issues.

With our expertise in dealing with complex problems, our healthcare specialists can treat physical health problems while our behavioral health staff work on emotional and mental health problems.
