Opioid addiction treatment with Health Care Resource Centers (HCRC) includes counseling as an essential part of a patient’s treatment plan. Decades of research show that medication-assisted treatment (MAT) is most effective in conjunction with professional counseling and support. We provide counseling services for methadone and buprenorphine MAT programs.
HCRC counselors are trained, certified professionals experienced in the field of addiction treatment. They offer non-judgmental, compassionate support to our patients throughout their recovery. Counseling is goal-oriented, driven by each patient’s objectives for their recovery and life outside of their disease. Substance use disorder counseling is also a legal requirement of participation in many MAT programs. We provide counseling as part of a comprehensive treatment service.

Family counseling services for medication-assisted treatment provide benefits such as:
Like individual and group counseling, the goals will be specific to each patient and family, but will focus on rebuilding healthy relationships.
