HCRC Northampton is an outpatient, medication-assisted treatment (MAT) program. We provide MAT with methadone and buprenorphine to meet a wide range of care needs. Patients receive individual and group counseling to help them reach their recovery goals.
Everyone who receives service at HCRC gets treated with respect and dignity. We understand increasing your quality of life means enhancing the emotional aspects of treatment. Throughout your recovery, we want you to consider us a trusted resource. Our staff values your accomplishments. To celebrate our patients, we have patient appreciation days that acknowledge their successes.
Why Choose HCRC Northampton for Medication-Assisted Treatment?
There are many reasons to choose us as your opioid use disorder treatment provider. We are:
Experienced: We have more than 25 years of experience helping patients. Our first facility opened in 1989 as Community Substance Abuse Centers. While we have a different name, we never changed our commitment to quality care.
Accredited: Our facilities receive top ratings in Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) accreditations. CARF evaluates treatment centers for their service quality, and our results show our dedication to excellence.
Accessible: With 10 HCRC locations in Massachusetts and six more throughout New England, you can easily find one near you. If you ever move, you can request a fast and simple records transfer, too.
Every patient at HCRC has an individualized treatment plan that includes medication, therapy and support services. Your plan will include treatments such as:
MAT With Methadone or Buprenorphine: During MAT, you take a medicine that eases your withdrawal symptoms. Methadone can treat patients with various degrees of tolerance and causes no harm to pregnant women. The beginning of methadone treatment involves daily visits to the clinic, but you can gain the privilege of take-home medicine. Buprenorphine suits patients with mild to moderate tolerance. You receive it as a prescription and take it at home.
Substance Use Counseling: You and your counselor will look at the underlying issues that contribute to your drug use in one-on-one therapy. They will help you understand your thoughts and develop recovery skills. Every patient has different needs in counseling, and your therapist will work with you to identify them.
Group Therapy: In group therapy, you talk with a counselor and other patients dealing with opioid use disorder. You and your peers will talk about your treatment experiences in a confidential session. Interacting with other patients lets you learn how many people have a similar situation to yours.
Addiction Education: Knowledge about opioid use disorder helps us treat and prevent it. Patients and community members can come to our educational events to learn about addiction as a disease.
Relapse Prevention: Throughout your treatment, we will work toward reducing your chance of relapse. We provide coordinated care that focuses on all parts of recovery to help you stay committed to treatment.
