Substance Use Support Services

Start your journey to recovery today

What is substance use disorder?

If you cannot live without opioids, painkillers, cocaine, meth, heroin or any other similar substance, you have a substance use disorder. And while it’s hard to beat addiction, it can be done.

We use Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) for opioid dependency, which is considered the "gold standard" in care.

For other addictions, we can refer you to a nearby facility for medically supervised withdrawal management, in-patient or residential rehabilitation.

Benefits of substance use support services

If substance use disorder is holding you back from living your life to the fullest, treatment can help you get back on your feet. Results will vary depending on your unique situation, but generally, benefits of treatment include:
