Services

Methadone or Buprenorphine Maintenance Treatment

Medicine serves as MAT’s foundation. At MedMark Blairsville, we offer treatment with methadone and buprenorphine medications. Methadone and buprenorphine will help you manage withdrawal symptoms so that you can focus on other elements of recovery.

Medical Evaluations

Our medical team perform a physical examination to assess your physical health upon starting the program. Maintaining your wellness will help you have a successful recovery, and understanding your health will help us manage your MAT medication. The staff will provide referrals to community resources as necessary.

Individual Counseling Services

Patients who take part in our MAT program receive one-on-one therapy sessions. Counseling will give you the opportunity to talk about your thoughts and feelings related to addiction, one on one with your counselor. You will also set treatment goals and build recovery strategies.

Coordinated Pregnancy Treatment

Pregnant patients can take methadone safely under a doctor’s supervision. Taking part in MAT during your pregnancy will reduce your risk of miscarriage and premature labor. Our doctors can also adjust your MAT program to account for the changes your body goes through while you’re pregnant. The treatment team will coordinate treatment w

Guest Medication Services

We can accommodate patients from other clinics who need temporary or guest dosing when away from their regular clinic. If you need to take methadone every day, you can visit our clinic for your medicine with your home clinic’s permission. Please coordinate in advance with your treatment center so they can prepare and fax the proper paperwork to us before visiting for guest medication.

Community Resource Referrals

Since addiction can impact quality of life, we work with community organizations that assist with necessities. We understand that opioid use disorder can affect your living situation, finances and other resources. If you need assistance with these necessary parts of life, we can connect you with other community resources who can help.

Relapse Prevention Education and Discharge Planning

Let us support you in preventing relapse and finding success after MAT. We give our patients ongoing relapse prevention education to help them build coping skills and stay on the path to recovery. If you complete MAT, we can also coordinate follow-up contacts and additional services to help you succeed.

Medication-Assisted Treatment at MedMark Blairsville

As a MAT participant, you’ll take medicine and participate in therapy to manage your symptoms and build new habits. MAT programs at MedMark clinics include three elements:

  • Medication: Our patients take either methadone or buprenorphine to manage the effects of opioid withdrawal. Methadone lessens the painful symptoms of opiate withdrawal and blocks the euphoric effects of opiate drugs such as heroin, morphine, and codeine as well as semi-synthetic opioids including oxycodone and hydrocodone. Meanwhile, buprenorphine may be used for individuals with a less severe opioid addiction. It also diminishes the effects of physical symptoms of withdrawal and cravings and produces a ‘ceiling effect’ which lowers the risk of misuse and dependency. Buprenorphine maintenance treatment provides more flexibility and independence. Your doctor will work with you to achieve the most effective medication dosage.
  • Counseling: We require all MAT patients to take part in counseling because of its combined effectiveness with medications. You’ll have a unique experience with counseling that depends on your recovery goals. Our patients’ treatment goals can involve relationships, coping skills, past trauma and other elements of addiction.
  • Medical and social support: To further assist our patients in their recovery, we also provide medical and case management services. Our medical services promote our patients’ well-being and physical health. Case management and social services help patients reintegrate into society and coordinate their treatment.

These patient-centered services aim to address all aspects of addiction so that you can reclaim your life. Our comprehensive approach works to manage the root causes of addiction and related issues.
