Our methadone clinic provides an evidence-based treatment program that is certified by CARF (Commission on the Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities). We commit ourselves to continuous improvement in our care.
Our clinic staff specializes in providing MAT programs that involve the medications methadone and buprenorphine. In a MAT program, your doctor prescribes a medication that manages the physical symptoms of addiction. Your medicine reduces the effects of withdrawal to help you recover. It also blocks the euphoria caused by other opioids to make it easier to stop their use. The patients at MedMark San Antonio take one of two MAT medications — methadone or buprenorphine.
Addiction professionals have more than 50 years of experience using methadone to help people with opioid use disorder. Methadone has a reputation as the gold standard of MAT. It can treat severe withdrawal symptoms when the patient takes the right amount. A methadone MAT program involves daily clinic visits during the first phases of treatment. Going to the clinic every day gives patients structure that lets them adjust to the program. The patient may earn the right to take medicine home after progressing through the program.
Buprenorphine has had over a decade of use in the addiction recovery field. When your doctor prescribes buprenorphine, you can fill its prescription at a pharmacy and take it at home. Compound medications that include buprenorphine can also deter misuse and injection. Whether your doctor will prescribe buprenorphine or methadone depends on your symptoms and situation. You and your treatment team will work together to find the best solution.
Every MAT program includes one-on-one counseling sessions. During your time with your counselor, you can talk about your thoughts and feelings about opioids. Your therapist will help you identify treatment goals and work toward them. Each patient has a unique focus in counseling, such as resolving past traumas that contribute to use or learning coping skills. Counseling will give you the resources needed to manage the emotional symptoms of addiction and stay committed to treatment.
Addiction impacts all parts of life, and we want to help you with all aspects of your disorder. We provide psychosocial and community services that give you comprehensive treatment. Case management acts as the center of your experience. Your case manager will coordinate your care to ensure that all members of your treatment team have the same goals. Patients in special circumstances, such as pregnant patients, can receive integrated services. When you need assistance with necessities like housing and food, we can refer you to community organizations ready to help.
